Is your smile looking a little less than picture-perfect? You may be considering restorative treatments to help restore it back to its beautiful state. If you’ve already done some searching, you have probably noticed there are several restorations on the market right now. We’d like to provide more information on the restorative services we offer.
If you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants can benefit you. Implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth and many people choose them for their natural appearance and functionality! The process of getting dental implants comes in steps.
- First, your implant is placed and fused with your jawbone.
- Once your jawbone has healed, an abutment is attached to the implant to connect your restorative piece.
- Then, the restorative piece of your choice will be attached to the abutment.
Snap-on dentures are often favored over traditional dentures because they are more secure. These dentures are attached to mini dental implants, which allows less room for movement. Many people prefer snap-on dentures because they don’t have to worry about dental adhesives to hold them in place.
While implants are intended to be a permanent solution, they may need attention or replacement over time. What’s needed to restore your implant will depend on the severity of the case. For some people, it is simply replacing the restoration that is attached to the abutment. If you are experiencing issues a bit deeper than that, it is possible you may need a more extensive treatment.
