What Are Dental Implants? A Comprehensive Guide
Replacing Missing Teeth: A Safe and Effective Solution
Missing teeth can affect your confidence, chewing ability, and even your overall oral health. Fortunately, dental implants offer a permanent and natural-looking solution. High Point Dental Partners is proud to provide top-notch implant services, helping residents regain their smiles and function.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
Unlike other tooth replacement options, dental implants boast several unique benefits:
- Preserve Bone Density: Unlike bridges or dentures, which can lead to bone loss, implants stimulate and preserve bone growth, keeping your smile healthy for years to come.
- Superior Stability and Comfort: Implants feel and function more like natural teeth, offering enhanced comfort and confidence to speak, laugh, and chew without worry.
- Secure Dentures: Wobbly dentures are a thing of the past with implant-supported dentures. Enjoy a stable, comfortable fit that won’t slip or slide.
- Protects Remaining Teeth: Unlike traditional bridges, implants don’t require altering neighboring teeth, preserving their health and longevity.
Types of Dental Implants:
1. Endosteal Implants: The most common type, these feature a titanium screw surgically placed in the jawbone, topped with a crown or bridge for a natural look and strong, lasting support.
2. All-on-4 Implants: This revolutionary system uses just four strategically placed implants to support a full denture, offering faster recovery and a secure, comfortable fit.
The Dental Implant Procedure at High Point Dental Partners:
- Consultation: Our dentist will assess your needs and determine if implants are right for you.
- Preparation: Any necessary tooth extractions or bone grafting will be performed, followed by a healing period.
- Implant Placement: The implant is surgically placed in the jawbone, with a healing cap for initial recovery.
- Crown or Denture Placement: After osseointegration (fusion with the bone), the final crown or denture will be attached, completing your beautiful, functional smile.
