Our patients can replace missing teeth permanentlyPosted By Dr. Christopher Lim
Dental implants can be used in a myriad of ways. Some patients use dental implants to replace a single tooth. This is the most common use of implants in dentistry. The implant is placed to act as a false tooth root, and is restored with a dental crown over the abutment. In other situations, the implant is used to anchor a dental bridge, which is used to replace one or more teeth in a row. This is done when there are no adjacent teeth to support a dental bridge. Some patients also use dental implants along the dental arch to hold their dentures in place. This situation works perfectly for patients who are struggling with keeping their dentures stable. The dental implants secure the denture in place and allow men and women to enjoy their favorite foods with confidence!
Dental implants are an affordable option for many patients, and in some instances, patients with dental insurance may be able to enjoy partial coverage to make them even more attainable. Dental implants often hold their value better than other restorations. When properly maintained, many patients who have dental implants placed will enjoy them for the rest of their lives.
