Options for Replacing Missing Teeth
For a long time, the only options for replacing missing teeth were bridges or dentures. While these methods are successful at filling the gaps in your smile, they do not preserve your jaw bone. They also come with complications like the need for regular repair and replacement, which can be quite costly over your lifetime. Today’s patients can benefit from the longevity and stability of dental implants.
Dental Implants and Implant Supported Denture
Dental implants in Fort Wayne, IN are made of biocompatible titanium and is surgically placed in your jaw bone to look, feel, and function like a natural tooth. You can customize your treatment with dental implants by replacing one tooth or several missing teeth. Even if you are missing all of your teeth, you can still benefit from the stability of implants and preserve your bone levels with implant supported dentures. In this procedure, implants are placed and a new or existing denture is attached to the implants.
Implants provide a stable bite, making eating easy and eliminating the possibility of embarrassing slippage or “clacking” noises. With proper homecare and regular maintenance, your dental implants can last a lifetime, saving you both time and money in the long run.
