Tooth loss is an unfortunate reality that is experienced by many people. Dental implants are considered the gold standard for permanent tooth replacement.
Some reasons a person may lose a tooth include gum disease, severe tooth decay or an oral injury. When a permanent tooth is lost, receiving a proper replacement is a top priority. One of the best ways to do this is with dental implants which are surgically inserted into the jawbone. These screw-like structures will act as tooth roots and provide strong support for permanent replacement teeth.
Dental implants are made from medical-grade titanium. This material is excellent for use in dental implants because of its ability to fuse with natural bone and prevent the deterioration that comes with tooth loss. This allows dental implants to perform essentially the same functions as natural tooth roots. Dental implants provide incredible stability that provides users with complete confidence.
At Madison Family Dental, we specialize in endosteal implants and All-on-4 implants for patients.
Endosteal implants are the most popular implant type in modern dentistry. This is largely due to their exceptional versatility and great performance. While most endosteal implants are only used to support a single missing tooth, they can also be used to help provide support for a dental bridge or a complete set of dentures. Endosteal implants consist of a titanium structure that is inserted into the jawbone. The structure provides support for replacement teeth.
The All-on-4 implant system consists of four titanium implants that are strategically placed in an individual’s jawbone. Using just these four implants, an entire row of replacement teeth can be supported. The four titanium structures will provide strong and dependable support for the artificial teeth. A great aspect of all-on-4 implants is that patients typically experience very fast recovery times since only four implants are installed. This also reduces the likelihood of any complications or added issues associated with the installation procedure. Best of all, a temporary set of replacement teeth can be attached the day of surgery.
If you are suffering from tooth loss, dental implants may provide the ideal solution for you. We look forward to helping you determine the perfect type of dental implants for your needs. Please call us at (201) 468-9884 to schedule an appointment.
