Full Mouth Reconstruction Candidates
Any dental professional will tell you the importance of replacing a missing tooth or an extracted tooth. If a tooth (or teeth) is left un-replaced, it can cause serious jaw bone damage in the future, which can require a much more involved procedure. So, why wait? Replace your missing teeth today, to not only boost the confidence in your smile once again, along with helping the overall functionality of your mouth. If you have one or more missing teeth in your mouth, your dentist may recommend full mouth dental implants.
What Is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is the #1 dentist recommended tooth replacement procedure in the industry. A dental implant is made up of a titanium post that is carefully and strategically placed in the missing space of the tooth (below the gums and into the jaw bone). The titanium post, over time, fuses together with the jaw bone to allow the foundation of the replacement tooth to be just as strong as the other natural teeth in the mouth.
Once the post has fused with the jawbone, your dental professional will attach the replacement tooth to the implant, so it sits exactly on your gum line. The dentist will likely choose a material that works best for your smile, most likely a porcelain or a ceramic crown.
Why Should I get Dental Implants over any other tooth replacement procedure?
There are many ways to replace a tooth, however, a dental implant is the only procedure that goes below the gum line to provide not only the look of a natural tooth but also the strength of a natural tooth. They are designed to last upwards of 40+ years, which is a much longer lifespan than any other solution. Other options like dentures, must be taken out daily, or crowns or bridges will require replacement years down the line, and a specific maintenance routine for upkeep.
Dental implants are much easier to maintain. They are cleaned and taken care of exactly how your natural teeth need maintenance. You can brush and floss them without worrying if they’ll pop or slide out of your mouth. They’re comfortable and just as stable as natural teeth. This option truly doesn’t require too much effort from the patient at all, once they’re set in.
Why Full Mouth Dental Implants?
Dental implants are an amazing way to replace one tooth, however, now there are ways to replace many teeth using this procedure. If you are in need of a complete overhaul of your upper or lower arch teeth (or both), then perhaps this option is perfect for you. As opposed to opting for dentures, talk to your dentist about full mouth dental implants. These are added in exactly like the single-tooth replacements but more posts and abutments are added in order to allow a full teeth replacement.
