How versatile are dental implants?

istock 1034373588 Replacing missing natural teeth with dental implants is easy, and one of the more popular methods of tooth replacement and restoration available at the Hills Dental Spa in Austin, Texas. Dr. Kevin Winters encourages patients to ask about these versatile restorations which can be used to replace one, some, or all of the teeth in the dental arch in a reliable and long-lasting manner.

How are dental implants used?

The versatility of dental implants is what makes them a high-demand replacement option for many of our patients. Below are just a few of the ways dental implants are used:

  • Replacement of a single tooth. To replace a single tooth, a dental implant is placed into the jawbone and restored over the top using a custom dental crown.
  • Replacement of several teeth. When several teeth in a row are missing, patients might consider a dental bridge. However, without adjacent teeth, a bridge cannot be placed. Dental implants can act as one or both sides for support of a dental bridge.
  • Replacement of all the teeth. If all the teeth in the dental arch are lost, full dentures are often the only option. Fortunately, our team also offers implant-retained dentures, where several implants are placed along the dental arch and then restored with a full denture that snaps into place. Implant-retained dentures are incredibly strong and durable.

Which one is right for me?

Patients need to undergo an evaluation with their dentist to determine if they are a good candidate for dental implants. These patients must have healthy smiles free from periodontal disease and tooth decay, while having enough remaining bone to successfully place the implant during oral surgery. X-rays and a physical evaluation by our team will help in determining candidacy for this or alternative tooth replacement options available.
