Having missing teeth can prove to be daunting for many patients. They may not only experience problems with eating and speaking, they may also feel self-conscious about their appearance. Dentures may prove to be bothersome, loosening and shifting over time. Fortunately, modern dentistry has come a long way so that everybody can enjoy a full set of stable, secure, and natural-looking pearly whites.
If you have missing teeth or would like to transition from dentures to dental implants, count on us to help you. At the office of North Haven Dentists, we’ll educate you about how you can benefit from implant procedures, including one called “All-On-6.”
Implants: A closer look
A dental implant is a small (usually titanium) post that’s inserted into the jawbone in the space left by a missing tooth. Once the implant is placed in the mouth and fully heals, an aesthetically pleasing crown is permanently attached to the post. With All-On-6 dental implants, the patient’s upper or lower teeth are replaced with six implants that are anchored together – similar to a bridge. The All-On-6 implants rarely require bone grafting, so they are a great solution for patients with areas of low bone density or volume.
