When it comes to replacing missing teeth, dental implants are the best option available. Only dental implants replace the roots of missing teeth, which means they have the ability to prevent and even reverse bone loss in the jaw. The result is a restoration that looks, feels, and functions just like your natural teeth.
The term “dental implants” can refer to a number of different restorations. At Fabey Dental, we offer the following dental implant services:
Single Tooth Dental Implants
A single-tooth dental implant replaces one missing tooth. A dental implant post is placed in the jaw where the root of the tooth once was, a crown replaces the visible portion of the tooth, and an abutment piece connects the two.
Implant Supported Bridges
If you are missing a few teeth that are adjacent to each other, an implant-supported bridge offers a more stable restoration than a traditional bridge. Rather than relying on healthy teeth to support a bridge, this type of restoration is held in place by dental implants.
Implant Supported Dentures
Implant-supported dentures are used for patients who are missing most or all of their teeth. There are several different types of implant-supported denture restorations available. They can be full or partial; fixed or removable (also known as snap-in dentures). Choosing the right option for you depends on your oral health, preferences, and lifestyle.
An implant-supported denture requires the placement of two or more implants for support; for a full arch denture, four implants is generally recommended. Patients who had traditional dentures in the past find that their implant-supported dentures are a more comfortable solution, as there’s no paste or adhesive needed to hold them in place, there’s no shifting or irritation, and they feel more confident when they smile.
Full Arch with Only Four Implants
This unique implant solution replaces an entire upper or lower arch of missing teeth using only four dental implants as anchors.
Guided Implant Placement
We use the latest technology at our dental practice, including guided implant placement. This allows us to create custom surgical guides to direct the exact location, angle, and depth of each implant placement for better patient outcomes.
Cone Beam Scanner
3D imaging provides better quality and more detailed images than traditional x-rays, allowing us to better plan your treatment. This new technology is also less invasive and emits less radiation than traditional x-ray machines.Learn More
Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Implants
Can dental implants be done in one day?
There are some dental implant procedures that can be completed in a single day, but not all patients are candidates for them. We’ll discuss your options during your consultation.
How painful is getting a dental implant?
We use local anesthetic to numb the placement site, which means you’ll feel no pain during the dental implant procedure. As the anesthetic wears off, you are likely to experience some tenderness and discomfort. This can be alleviated with over the counter pain relievers.
Is there an alternative to dental implants?
Traditional dentures and bridges can replace the visible portion of missing teeth, but no other option addresses the consequences of tooth loss below the gum line. In this way, dental implants are unique.
Can I have all of my teeth replaced with implants?
Yes, there are dental implant options that allow you to replace all of your teeth.
Does insurance cover dental implants?
It’s becoming more common for dental insurance companies to cover at least part of the costs of dental implants. In some circumstances, your health insurance may also provide coverage. We’re happy to help you understand your benefits.
