At Meadowbrook Family Dental in Elk Grove, CA, we are excited to offer a range of dental implant solutions that cater to diverse needs. Whether you are dealing with the loss of a single tooth, several teeth, or require a complete set of dentures, our implant technology is designed to provide a robust and lasting solution.
Dental implants are not limited to only supporting full dentures; they are incredibly versatile and can be tailored to individual requirements. For those missing just one tooth, a single implant can provide a seamless and natural-looking replacement. For multiple missing teeth, implant-supported bridges can be an effective solution. And for those who have lost all their teeth or are existing denture wearers, our implant-retained dentures offer a revolutionary experience.
How Dental Implants Work
Dental implants, meticulously implanted into the jawbone, serve as a resilient foundation for various tooth replacements such as a single crown, bridge, or full denture. These implants seamlessly integrate with your bone, guaranteeing a remarkably natural appearance and sensation. The ultimate outcome extends beyond mere aesthetics; it fully restores functionality, empowering you to enjoy eating, speaking, and smiling with absolute confidence.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
- They offer a permanent solution for tooth loss.
- Implants can replace any number of missing teeth—from one to an entire set.
- They help maintain jaw bone health and prevent bone deterioration.
- Implants provide a stable and strong foundation for prosthetic teeth.
- They enhance overall oral health and functionality.
How Implant-Retained Dentures Work
When you choose implant retained dentures, we are able to affix your denture prosthesis to surgically implanted posts within your mouth. Our team will identify areas of your mouth that have the most jaw bone support and place two to four implants per arch. These implants, once healed, will support the denture. The dental implants not only snap into the denture for a strong and hassle-free hold but also improve your overall jaw health by stimulating bone growth! This means you won’t experience bone deterioration.
Why Choose Implant-Retained Dentures?
- They increase stability within the mouth.
- Implant-retained dentures are more comfortable to wear.
- They improve oral and jaw bone health.
- They provide a stronger bite.
- Implants hold the denture more securely and enhance speech.
Who is a Candidate for Dental Implants?
Almost anyone who has experienced tooth loss, regardless of age or dental history, can be considered a potential candidate for dental implants. One important factor to consider is the availability of adequate bone volume, as it is crucial for the successful placement of implants. However, even in cases where there is significant bone loss, various procedures can be performed to augment the existing bone and create a suitable foundation for the implants. These procedures may involve bone grafting or the use of specialized materials to promote bone regeneration. By addressing the issue of bone volume, dental implants offer a reliable and long-lasting solution for individuals seeking to restore their smile and regain the full functionality of their teeth.
