Understanding Dental Implants

One of the first things you need to understand about dental implants is that they are not replacement teeth. Dental implants are replacement tooth roots, and they have a replacement tooth, bridge, or denture placed on top of them. That is how they give you your smile back. Dental implants have a unique feature that makes them ideal for replacing natural tooth roots. This feature is called osseointegration, or the process of the implant fusing with your jawbone. This gives them the ability to provide superior stability. Fusion with the bone also helps them stave off bone deterioration that accompanies the loss of your natural teeth. These two characteristics make dental implants a wonderful choice when it comes to helping you restore your smile.

Choose From Dr. Boyle’s Dental Implant Options

There are two types of dental implants available at Tab A. Boyle, DDS.

  • Traditional – This is a standard dental implant. Recommended for use in nearly every area of your mouth, you will enjoy stability and function that is rivaled only by your real teeth.
  • Mini Dental Implants – The mini dental implant is smaller in gauge than the traditional dental implant. This means the procedure to place them is less invasive and will lead to a shorter recovery time. The one drawback is that this type of dental implant is sometimes not recommended for use on the upper part of your mouth. Regardless, Dr. Boyle will help you decide which option is best suited for your situation.

There are also several ways dental implants can be used to replace teeth, including:

    • All-on-4 – By placing four dental implants in your jaw with two in the back angled, a whole row of replacement teeth can be supported. This means less surgery and less healing time, and you still enjoy the benefits of unmatched stability and bone-loss prevention that come with dental implants.
    • All-on-6 – This procedure is just like the All-on-4, but instead of four implants, six are used. Dr. Boyle will evaluate your situation and develop a treatment plan that will take care of your specific problem. Call our office today to set up your consultation.
  • Single Implant Placement – One tooth, one implant – it is really that simple. You lose a tooth, and a single dental implant will be placed to fill the gap. A replacement tooth, or crown, will be custom made to match your smile and get you back on the road quickly.
  • Implant-Retained Dentures – Providing you with the stability of dental implants and the full arch of teeth that dentures provide, implant-retained dentures will give you the smile you have been wanting.
  • Implant-Supported Bridges – These will give you the look of a natural smile, the stability of dental implants, and the ability to fill the gap left by a few lost teeth or entire arch. They will help strengthen your jawbone as the force from chewing is distributed to your bone, not your gums.

Know the Difference Between Dental Implants and Dentures

Implants are a different choice than dentures. Each option has its own uses. Many times, dental implants and dentures are combined into one treatment plan, such as with implant-retained and implant-supported dentures. Dentures allow for many replacement teeth to be placed at one time without the invasive approach of putting in a dental implant for each missing tooth. This drastically cuts down the amount of surgery and the accompanying recovery time needed. And with our same-day smile procedure, you may be able to leave the office with your permanent restoration placed on your dental implant!
