Dental implants are an exceptional way to replace missing teeth, providing a fixed solution, rather than a removable prosthesis. This modality allows the patient to only address the space of the missing tooth without the need to have an impact on or compromise the health of adjacent teeth as is necessary with a dental bridge.
Usually, three to six months after the surgical placement of the implant fixture, Tumminia Dental provides the final restoration, abutments, single crowns, bridges and overdentures.
A dental implant is a cylindrical and/or tapered post, usually made of titanium, that serves as a substitute for the tooth root. Dental implants are often the best treatment for missing teeth.
When a damaged or decayed tooth is removed, both the visible part of the tooth, called the crown, and the root are lost. A dental implant is placed in the jawbone so that it can fuse with your natural bone and become a strong and sturdy foundation for replacement teeth. Implants can be used to replace an individual tooth or for an implant-supported bridge or denture containing multiple teeth.
Dental implants are the closest you can get to healthy, natural teeth. They will allow you to confidently eat, smile, laugh, talk, play and enjoy all of your regular activities of everyday life without worrying about your teeth
An implant-supported denture is a type of overdenture that is supported by and attached to implants. A regular denture rests on the gums, and is not supported by implants. An implant-supported denture is used when a person doesn't have any teeth in the jaw, but has enough bone in the jaw to support implants.
