When it comes to tooth replacement options, implants are often a great option for most people looking for a long-term solution. Dental implants are prosthetic teeth that are surgically implanted into your jawbone. The implant screw itself acts an artificial root, fusing to your jawbone through a process called osteointegration. On top of the screw is an abutment, where Dr. Carmona will attach a permanent crown.
Aside from the added confidence you get from the permanency of dental implants, there are many benefits to choosing implants. Namely, implants can help preserve your jawbone.
There are many types of implant options available to you, so be sure to ask Dr. Carmona which option is best for you.
Single tooth replacement: If you’re missing one tooth, Dr. Carmona may suggest a single dental implant. Should this be the type of dental implant you receive, Dr. Carmona will permanently affix a custom-made crown to the abutment.
Implant-supported bridge: An implant-supported bridge is a great option for people who are missing multiple teeth.
Implant-supported or -retained denture: An implant-supported denture is a removable denture that snaps into your implant. The attachment that holds the removable denture in place is screwed into the implant.
All-on-4 implants: All-on-4 is a great option if you need to replace an entire arch or all of your teeth. With this system, Dr. Carmona can replace an entire arch with only 4 implants and in as little as one day.
Dental implants are an investment in yourself. Although implants cost more than other tooth-replacement procedures upfront, they last an average of 20 years. At Austin Prosthodontics, we pride ourselves on using high-quality materials to ensure the longevity of your implants.
Dental implants will give you the confidence you need to truly love your smile and the freedom to live your life on your terms. Call Dr. Carmona at Austin Prosthodontics today at (512) 250-9444 or request an appointment online.
