Implant Options in Derry, NH, for Missing Teeth
For patients who have lost teeth, choosing a restorative dentistry treatment can be daunting. Teeth can be replaced with dentures, implants, or dental bridges, and patients can struggle figuring out which solution will be best for them. At Vanguard Dental Group in Derry, NH, we offer implants, dentures, and dental bridges to our patients in the Manchester, NH, area. Dental implants are often the very best option for most patients, but each patient is different and may have unique needs.
Dentures | Dentures are sets of artificial teeth that best suit patients who have lost either all or almost all of their teeth. Partial dentures replace sections of teeth, and full dentures can replace an entire arch. At Vanguard Dental Group, we offer traditional dentures that are attached with an adhesive, as well as implant supported dentures. Implant supported dentures provide more support for the jawbone and are a more permanent and lasting solution.
Dental Bridges | Dental bridges use dental crowns to bridge the gaps in your mouth. A series of crowns are cemented together and then the first and last crown is attached to the teeth adjacent to your gap. Dental bridges provide a full functional smile to patients who have lost teeth. They are created with beautiful dental crowns that look and feel like your natural teeth, and are handcrafted to provide patients with perfect occlusion.
Dental bridges are a great substitute for the surface portion of a missing tooth. However, they don’t replace the tooth root, and won’t protect patients against jaw deterioration or bone loss.
Dental Implants | Dental implants replace the root of your tooth, and are combined with a porcelain crown to replace the portion of the tooth above the surface of your gums. Implants are the only restorative procedure that replaces both the roots and the outer area. They look and feel completely natural, and they give our patients a complete smile that is both functional and beautiful. Implants are durable enough to last a lifetime, and are a permanent solution to tooth loss.
Our implants provide all the benefits of your natural teeth and look so natural that people won’t be able to tell you have an implant. Implants keep your jaw strong and healthy and reduce bone deterioration.
