With more than 35 million Americans missing all their upper and/or lower teeth, often related to the aging process, it should be no surprise that there is demand for restoration without having to deal with dentures. Traditional dentures can be uncomfortable, cumbersome and embarrassing, but full mouth dental implants provide a newer and more advanced option. Just four dental implants can fully replace your upper or lower teeth and help restore your smile.
What is a dental implant?
A dental implant consists of a surgically implanted, small titanium screw placed inside your jawbone to replace the root of a missing tooth. Once it is inserted, a crown is attached to provide the function and appearance of a real tooth. The unique thing about the titanium material is that it fuses together with your jawbone, becoming part of your jaw and functioning as a strong, secure foundation for your replacement teeth. The other benefit to this feature is that it helps prevent bone loss in your jaw, giving you better oral health and a more youthful facial appearance. If you are missing multiple teeth, a dental implant is not necessary for every single missing tooth. Four perfectly placed implants on your top arch, or four on your bottom arch, is enough to give you back your smile.
