Thought dental implants were only meant to replace one missing tooth? Think again!

When it comes to deciding which tooth replacement treatment to use, the choice might not be as simple at first. In fact, unless you sit Dental Implantsdown and talk about your goals and needs with one of our West Roxbury, MA dentists you may actually find yourself going through hours of online research just to come up fruitless. Find out what makes dental implants different from other tooth loss treatments.

Are you missing one or more permanent teeth?

What makes dental implants so unique is that you can replace one or more teeth with implants. While a single dental implant can be surgically placed into the jawbone to hold a dental crown, multiple implants can also be placed in the jaw to hold everything from a dental bridge to partial dentures to even a full set of dentures. So whether you need to replace one tooth or all of your teeth implants are there to help.

Why choose dental implants for supporting my dental bridges or dentures?

If you’ve ever had dentures yourself or you know someone who does then you are probably aware of the fact that dentures can slip around in your mouth, making it more difficult to chew or speak sometimes. While dentures can replace all of your teeth they certainly aren’t designed to function as well as natural teeth.

Fortunately, you can turn to implants to provide the strong, stable support you need to hold several false teeth in place without worrying about slippage or embarrassing clicking noises. This means you can enjoy all your favorite meals without fear!
