Those who have lost all of their teeth or are soon to have their last, failing teeth removed have several options for tooth replacement. One of the most advanced and reliable techniques are to permanently attach life-like prosthetic teeth to dental implants that are anchored in the jawbone. Today dental implants are one of the most accepted dental treatment modalities for the rehabilitation of lost teeth and their function.
In the past, many people with severe bone loss in their jaw were not eligible for implant-supported replacement teeth, since implants need a certain amount of bone present for stability. But we make use of specially designed implants that come in a variety of sizes and shapes. They are adaptable to almost every level of bone volume, thus removing the need for bone grafting for most patients.
Advantages of Permanently Fixed-In Teeth
- You can eat the foods you want and need - your new teeth will have nearly the same chewing power as natural teeth so you will be able to eat the foods you want and need for proper nutrition without having to use a blender or cut your food up in tiny pieces.
- You won’t experience painful chewing or sores - your new teeth will be securely fixed onto implants. Chewing will be easy and comfortable and you will not end up with the painful sores that result from loose-fitting regular dentures.
- Your jawbone will be preserved- with implant-supported, fixed-in teeth, the chewing pressure on the implants works the same way as the pressure exerted on natural tooth roots, helping to prevent further bone loss.
