Dental Implant Solutions For Every Kind of Tooth Loss
If you are one of the 178 million Americans who has experienced edentulism, or permanent tooth loss, dental implants can help. Dental implants are highly effective, long lasting solutions to tooth loss. Through a process called osseointegration, your implants will fuse to your jaw, preventing them from moving around or falling out.
Our dental implant solutions can restore your ability to eat, speak, and smile, while preventing tooth loss related health issues. Whether you’ve lost a single tooth or an entire arch of teeth, at Eggleston Dental Care, we have dental implant solutions to fit your unique oral health needs.
For patients who have lost a permanent tooth in one or multiple parts of their mouth, Dr. Eggleston can install a single tooth implant. Single tooth implants are topped with a stunning porcelain crown restoration. Your crown will be customized to match the shape and color of your natural teeth and is the only visible part of your implant.
For patients who have lost multiple adjacent teeth, there is a method for replacing them that is faster and more cost effective than individual implants. Dr. Eggleston can replace multiple missing adjacent teeth with a dental bridge and secure it with two or more implants.
Unlike a traditional bridge, implant-supported bridges don’t need to rely on your surrounding teeth for support. This saves your surrounding teeth from the enamel shaving process, which may encourage infection and decay. These traits make implant supported bridges a healthier, longer-lasting option.
If you’re missing most or all of your top and bottom teeth, replacing them with individual implants could be extremely costly, time consuming, and involve a potentially drawn-out healing process.
Today, there’s an alternative method for replacing entire arches of teeth called All-On-4. This cost effective, timely technique requires only four implants to secure a singular permanent denture to an arch. Your smile can be restored while keeping your time in the chair and in recovery comparatively short.
Best of all, we’ll provide a natural-looking temporary prosthetic immediately after placing your implants. This means you won’t have to live with gaps in your smile while your jaw heals.
