Understanding Dental Implants
Dental implants are durable, natural-looking restorations made using titanium posts implanted into the jawbone, where dental implants can be attached.
With a secure fit, dental implants do not require special adhesives, and there are no restrictions on what foods patients can eat. Dental implants are an excellent option for restoring the aesthetic appearance and functionality of the smile, whether a patient is missing one or multiple teeth. Moreover, they stimulate growth in the jawbone, making them the healthiest tooth replacement option available today!
Which Dental Implant is Right For Me?
We offer the following dental implant systems:
- Single Dental Implants
- All-on-4® Dental Implants
- Hybrid Dental Implants
- Implant-Retained Dentures
Single Dental Implant
A single-tooth implant is designed to replace a missing tooth and its root, and it is sealed with a custom-shaded dental crown that perfectly matches the rest of your smile.
All-on-4® Dental Implants
All-On-4 implant dentures provide a long-lasting solution for patients tired of dealing with traditional removable dentures. The best part? This system is designed to give patients a new, complete set of teeth on the same day as their procedure!
All-On-4 dental implants work by placing four titanium implants into the patient's upper or lower arch, securing them more firmly than traditional implants as they are integrated into the jawbone and attached to custom dentures. Custom-crafted All-On-4 dental implants appear natural and realistic.
Hybrid Implant Dentures
With hybrid dental implants, Dr. Tang permanently affixes dentures using dental implants. If you have suffered widespread tooth loss and are concerned about the cost of conventional full-mouth dental implants, this could be your ideal tooth replacement solution!
Implant-retained dentures are partial or complete dentures that sit atop dental implants for a healthier, more stable fit. Implant-retained dentures are a healthier alternative to traditional dentures as their ultra-snug fit promotes healthy bone retention. Similar to conventional dentures, they are removable and require daily care.
What are the Benefits of Dental Implants?
Dental implants offer numerous advantages for restoring the smile, making them a popular treatment choice for many patients. Strong, durable dental implants achieve the following:
- Provide a proper foundation for various restorations
- Biocompatibility with the body
- Achieve and maintain the jawbone structure
- Strong, durable, and long-lasting restoration
Are Dental Implants Painful?
Our team works hard to ensure that procedures such as the placement of dental implants are safe, effective, and painless.
How Long Do Dental Implants Last?
One of the primary reasons patients choose to have dental implants placed is due to their longevity. With proper care and continued maintenance, many patients keep their dental implants for a lifetime. Their lifespan makes them a smart investment for those seeking a long-term, permanent tooth replacement option, compared to removable alternatives such as partial dentures.
