Multiple Tooth Implants – Lakeway, TX
The Best Way to Complete Your Smile
Are you missing multiple teeth? If so, we have a variety of replacement options to best fit your needs. In the past, tooth replacements have only restored the visible portions of teeth, however we offer dental implants as a way to restore your entire dental structure from the roots up. There are many advantages that come with this form of tooth replacement. Before deciding on your treatment, keep reading to learn about your replacement options and why implant-retained prosthetics are the premier choice for restoring multiple teeth.
Non-Implant Tooth Replacement Options
In order to better understand how dental implants work, let’s review these traditional options for multiple tooth replacement:
- Crown & bridge: We can replace between 1 and 3 consecutive missing teeth using a dental bridge. This prosthetic is held in place with dental crowns on either side, and it literally bridges the gap in your smile to replace the visible portion of your missing teeth.
- Partial dentures: If you’re missing multiple teeth randomly throughout your smile, a partial denture can fill in the lost pieces like putting together a puzzle. This can be done while keeping your remaining natural teeth intact.
- Full dentures: For those missing all or most of their teeth, a full denture can replace the visible parts of your entire smile. This is done by using a gum-colored base attached to prosthetic teeth. Traditional dentures are held in place with suction and even some denture adhesive.
The Dental Implant Process
Dental implants in Lakeway are small titanium posts that are placed in the jawbone to serve as artificial tooth roots, replacing the entire tooth. Once Dr. Daniel Eaddy examines your smile to ensure that you’re a good candidate for dental implants, he will schedule your surgery.
Benefits of Implant-Retained Dental Prosthetics
Implant-retained prosthetics offer unique advantages that you simply can’t get with any other option, including:
- Bone health: The only comprehensive tooth replacement, dental implants stimulate your jawbone to prevent deterioration after tooth loss.
- Dental health: Implants don’t require the removal of your natural tooth enamel like traditional bridges, allowing you to keep more of your smile intact.
- Longevity: With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime.
- Beauty: Dental implants allow your restorations to mimic the look of your natural teeth for ultimate beauty.
- Function: Rooted in the jaw, dental implants allow you to eat, speak, and laugh with confidence!
