Tooth restoration is a science. Depending on a variety of factors, we’re able to determine the best possible course of action and ensure the success of your restorations. While most dental restorations tend merely to the tooth missing above the gum line, there’s a great deal to pay attention to below the gum line as well. Once a tooth root is no longer attached to a section of your jaw bone, that bone begins to resorb, or dissolve and enter your bloodstream. Without the same bone density, your jaw and mouth will change. Your facial structure may even be altered by the lack of bone in the area.

Columbia Implant DentistBy replacing tooth roots, dental implants both preserve your jawbone and provide remarkable foundations for accompanying restorations. The implants will be placed in your jaw, where they will be allowed time to heal. During this period, the titanium of the implants will fuse with your natural jawbone. This makes your implant a true part of your jaw structure, one that supports restorations in the same way natural tooth roots do. Once the implant is ready, it will be paired with an abutment (a connector) and a restoration.

Implant-Supported Restorations

Implants may be paired with any of the following restorations:

Crowns – Single or multiple crowns paired with implants are a great way to replace teeth on an individual basis. You will still be able to floss around the tooth replacement, and it will truly feel like your own.

Bridges – As bridges draw on the strength of neighboring teeth to succeed, this can weaken those dental neighbors. Implants with bridges will replace missing teeth without depending on your other teeth.

Dentures – One of the biggest patient frustrations with dentures is their tendency to slip or feel loose in the mouth. Implants will securely hold dentures to your gums without the need for adhesives.

Mini Dental Implants

Mini dental implants make for a less invasive and more comfortable dental implant procedure. About half the diameter of traditional implants, mini implants require a shorter procedure and offer briefer healing time. Mini implants and restorations can often be placed in a single appointment, and at a lower cost than standard implants. Check with your dentist to see whether mini implants would work with your case.

Dental implants have brought innumerable amounts of joy into our patients’ lives. Schedule a complimentary consultation to learn more and decide whether implants are right for you.
