You’ve probably heard the song, “All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth.” This can be cute when sung by a kid, but adults who have a gap in their smile aren’t quite as cute.
If you are missing multiple teeth, a single tooth, or an entire row of teeth, we want to help. Dental implants can be used to help you restore more than just your natural-looking smile, however. They can give you back the biting power to enjoy some peanut brittle, Christmas cookies, or anything else you would like to eat.
To discover how implants could work for you, schedule a consultation with one of our doctors at Dental Health of Fianna. You can find us in Fort Smith, AR. Call 479-262-9101 now to plan your visit.
Reclaim What You’ve Lost
When you lose teeth, you lose more than that. You can lose confidence in your smile. You can lose your ability to bite and chew certain foods. While you won’t lose your ability to speak, you may find that certain words are more difficult to pronounce.
Restorative dentistry has been around in various forms for centuries. People have tried all kinds of ways to replace missing teeth. Today, you have the opportunity to get the best teeth replacements ever developed. Implants are a big part of why that is possible.
Crowns, bridges, and dentures are made with durable ceramics that also look indistinguishable from natural teeth. The problem is that these restorations don’t replace the roots of your lost teeth. Implants do, and that makes your new teeth feel and function practically as well as the real thing.
Discover The Right Replacement
Regardless of how many teeth you are missing, you can get replacements if you have a jawbone that can support implants. (If not, there are ways to rebuild the jaw so you can get implants.)
Here are some of the ways implants could help you:
- Implant-support crown — For someone missing a single tooth, this is a complete tooth replacement. The implant supports your dental crown so your smile is whole again.
- Implant-supported bridge — If you need to replace multiple teeth, crowns can be bonded together build your dental bridge. Then we can place two more implants to secure your bridge in position.
- Implant-retained dentures — If you need to replace a row of teeth, we can place a series of implants in your jawbone. Implant-retained dentures are affixed to your implants with a series of ball attachments.
- Implant-supported dentures — Again, you would receive a series of implants to support your dentures. In this case, your dentures are attached to a bar. The bar is made to attach to your implants.
