Dental Implants Q & A

What are dental implants?

When you lose a tooth or several, replacing them with dental implants is the next best thing to your natural teeth. Dental implants are custom-fitted prosthetic teeth. Every single implant contains a “root” and a crown — just like your natural teeth. 

The dental implant root is made of medical-grade titanium, and the crown — the visible part of the tooth — is usually made of ceramic or porcelain. Crowns can also be made from metals or porcelain fused to metal. Once your dentist places a dental implant, the root fuses to your jawbone and the new tooth become a permanent part of your mouth. 

Dental implants look and function just like your natural teeth, so you can talk with ease and enjoy your favorite foods without worrying that your dental work might slip out of place. At Dental Spa of Broad Street, you can even get same-day implants so you don’t have to go without teeth. 

What are the benefits of dental implants to replace missing teeth?

In addition to helping restore your mouth to its full function, dental implants also improve the aesthetic value of your smile. Among other benefits, they:

  • Prevent adjacent teeth from shifting out of place
  • Are permanent
  • Are easy to care for
  • Improve jawbone health
  • Prevent bone loss
  • Maintain facial structure
  • Improve oral health
  • Are not susceptible to tooth decay

Replacing one or more missing teeth with dental implants today can help you avoid more extensive dental restorations in the future. In the long run, implants can help prevent sagging skin around the area of missing teeth, and can help keep your gums healthier, too.

What are All-on-4 dental implants?

The All-on-4® treatment concept is a revolutionary way to replace all of your missing teeth at once, on the same day. This scientifically proven teeth-replacement technology allows you to replace all of your upper or lower teeth at once. Full-arch upper or lower implants are secured to your upper or lower jawbone with just four titanium screws. 

The screws attach to your jawbone, deep below your gums, so they hold your new set of teeth in place. Unlike traditional, removable dentures that float on top of your gums and often cause irritation from slipping around, All-on-4 dental implants stay connected to the implants and fit snugly against your gums. 

The All-on-4 treatment concept ensures greater stability of your new teeth, so you can eat and talk more naturally than you may be able to with removable dentures. 

Whether you have one missing tooth or several, the team at Dental Spa of Broad Street can offer a solution to restore your oral health and your self-confidence. Call today to schedule a consultation or book online.
