What Are Dental Implant Replacements?

If you are someone who has had dental implants installed, you may find that they now need replacing. Please read on and reach out to our knowledgeable dental team to learn more about how we can help you. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What is the purpose of dental implants?

When individuals begin to lose teeth whether due to poor hygiene, gum disease, or any other cause, there is a very good chance they will look into receiving dental implants. These are a great way for individuals to replace their teeth and restore confidence in their smiles once again. When you undergo a dental implant procedure, you will receive a titanium implant into your jaw bone. Once they have fused, a prosthetic tooth will be installed on the implant. These implants are a great fit for many, and they usually fit naturally into the slot where your original adult tooth once was without impacting any of the surrounding teeth. Once the implant is installed, it will generally heal within a week or two.

How long can dental implants last?

Unfortunately, dental implants generally do not last forever. However, as long as you take proper care, dental implants may last for even more than 25 years. That being said, when they do not last, they will need replacing. Fortunately, our office has been replacing dental implants for years, which is why we know we are more than qualified to do so for you.

What types of dental implants can be replaced?

Various types of dental implants can be replaced. While in some cases, individuals may only need one tooth replaced, other situations call for multiple, or complete tooth replacement. Some of the various options for dental plant replacements can include crown implants, full-arch replacements, all-on-4 implants, and bridge implants.
