You may be aware of the benefits of implants for replacing single teeth, but did you know that multiple teeth dental implants are also available?One of our highest priorities here at State Valley Dental is to make the most advanced treatment options available to you, our valued patient.
Traditional bridges and dentures are still around. They are serviceable options, but they are far from being like your real teeth in terms of how they feel and function. That makes sense, because your real teeth extend beneath your gums. Each one has a root that anchors your tooth into your jaw so that you can chew even the toughest and crunchiest foods. Bridges and dentures are simply surface replacements. They sit atop your gums, held in with cement or adhesive, without any underlying foundation. Our Munroe Falls dental implants are designed to correct that. And when you get them for multiple teeth, it essentially means that you are getting dentures, but ones supported by implants, so that you get the best of both forms of tooth replacement all in one structure. Instead of needing an implant for each tooth, typically only a few of our Munroe Falls dental implants are required. The denture fits snugly over it, snapping onto the dependable implants for a level of confidence that would otherwise be unattainable. Your dentures won’t need any messy adhesive, and you won’t ever have to worry that they will move around or slide on you when you speak or eat.
Are you a good candidate for our Munroe Falls dental implants? It’s simple enough to find out. Just reach out to our office to arrange an appointment for a consultation and examination. It’s the first key step in restoring your full smile and all the advantages that come along with it.
Implants in Cuyahoga Falls
Whether due to injury, disease, excessive decay or extraction missing teeth can ruin your smile; cause adjacent teeth to shift and possibly even alter your facial structure. The best thing to do about missing teeth is to replace them with artificial teeth as soon as possible. At State Valley Dental our doctor can replace missing teeth using either dentures and bridges or dental implants in Cuyahoga Falls.
Traditionally, missing teeth have been replaced using bridges and dentures. A bridge may be used to replace a single tooth or several teeth in a row, also called a partial denture. A bridge places an artificial tooth or teeth between existing teeth in essence bridging the gap created by the missing teeth. In most cases the bridge is supported by the adjacent natural teeth either by placing crowns on the teeth on either side of the artificial ones or by hooks. For a full jaw of replacement teeth a full denture is used, which places the artificial teeth in a gum-like substrate that goes over the gums and is affixed with dental paste. Full dentures are taken out to clean several times a day and at night while bridges are either permanently fixed or removable in the case of a partial denture. Dentures are different than dental implants in Cuyahoga Falls.
Dental implants in Cuyahoga Falls are permanently set replacement teeth that are more secure than removable dentures because they are anchored directly into the jawbone. Our doctor will surgically implant a titanium anchor directly into the bone, which over time (3 – 6 months) will bond with the bone becoming a part of it. The gum is then reopened and an abutment or post is attached to it that is topped by a ceramic crown, which forms the chewing surface of the new tooth. The replacement tooth looks; fells and functions just like the original tooth. Our doctor can also use implants as a more secure way to attach dentures and will implant four anchors along the jaw line, which will be used to secure the denture firmly in place. So, don’t let missing teeth ruin your smile come into our office and let our doctor evaluate the best way to restore it.
