Dental implants are anchorage devices that work for both temporary and permanent restorations. These anchors, which are typically titanium, are biocompatible with the body. Similar to how artificial replacements work for joints, dental implants are an excellent replacement option within the mouth.
A patient can choose to get a dental implant as a single tooth root that would work perfectly for a crown for a single tooth replacement. Two or more can be utilized to support a larger spanning dental structure. These structures may be an anchored crown and bridge or a denture fixed in place. Of course, various factors have to be considered to determine how much anchorage is needed as a foundation – aesthetics, anatomical limitations, permanence, and strength, among others.
For dental implants, we always start by determining the final result that we want and then work backward to see exactly how we can go about achieving that goal. Usually, there is more than one possible end result and as the patient, we will highly consider your preference when we mutually decide on the path we would take. There are instances when the soft tissue or supporting bone needs augmentation so that the desired end result can be achieved. It is imperative that all deficiencies or potential issues be addressed before, during, and after the implant therapy.
Because each patient and each case is different, we at Acadia Dental make sure that all cases are evaluated individually. We will be here every step of the way, guiding you through the entire process.
