Dental implants are innovative replacement teeth that are changing lives everywhere. Implant dentistry allows patients with missing teeth to regain a full smile that looks and feels incredibly natural. You, too can rediscover an unlimited diet, comfortable chewing, and complete confidence in your appearance.,
What are Dental Implants?
A tooth implant is a tiny titanium post that is surgically placed into the jawbone under a missing tooth. This tooth implant serves as a metal anchor and a root substitute. The tooth implant will stimulate the jawbone, protecting both the bone and facial structure from collapse.
Dental implants are the perfect anchors for replacement teeth. After the surgical placement of each tooth implant, you will take a few months to rest and heal. During this time, the dental implants will fuse with the jawbone.
When you have recovered, you will return to Dr. Teichmiller for the second phase of implant dentistry: placing the restorations onto the dental implants.
Tooth Implant Restoration Options in Decatur
Dental Crown | A dental crown is used to replace just one missing tooth.
Dental Bridge | A fixed bridge can replace two or several missing teeth, and usually only requires two to three dental implants. Other patients may choose a complete prosthesis, or a fixed bridge that replaces all of the teeth in the upper or lower jaw.
Dentures | If you are missing most or all of your teeth, a full denture may be the best option for you. Tooth implant dentures can be removable or permanent, depending on your needs.
Dr. Teichmiller will listen to your preferences and help you determine which restoration option is right for you. We guarantee that our restorations are designed with materials of the highest quality and most natural aesthetic available. You can also ask Dr. Teichmiller about mini dental implants.
