People with missing teeth always wish for a restoration that looks and feels as close to natural teeth as possible. Thanks to advances in dentistry, this has become possible with dental implants. An implant is a screw-like fixture that fits into the jawbone at the site of a lost tooth to act as an artificial root. A prosthetic tooth or a set of teeth can then be placed over the implant to act as a fixed, natural-looking and properly functioning tooth.
The office of Dean Israel and Associates offers the following types of dental implants:
These are also known as endosseous implants and are the most popular type. They are shaped like a screw or cylinder. They are placed in the jawbone using a surgical procedure. They do require the patient to have a dense jawbone in order to successfully support them.
These implants are specially designed for patients who have low jawbone density. They consist of a metal framework that is attached under the gum, on top of the jawbone.
The All-on-4 system is a revolutionary implant-based treatment that makes it possible to replace a full set of teeth with just four implants in each jaw. These special implants offer a complete restoration for your lost teeth using a fixed and fully customizable dental bridge. The treatment and recovery time is much less as multiple teeth can be replaced using a small number of implants.
With dental implants, you can talk with ease, smile a beautiful smile, and eat all the foods of your choice without having to worry about your prosthetic teeth slipping.
