Dental Implant Solutions in Derry, NH
Sometimes a single tooth can be lost due to a sports injury, decay, or other accident. When this happens and the tooth cannot be saved or reinserted, we can replace the lost tooth with a single dental implant.
What Is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant, or tooth implant, is a tiny metal rod that functions as a synthetic tooth root. Like your natural tooth root, a tooth implant will fuse directly to your bone and keep your jawbone healthy and strong. Our dental implants in Derry, NH, are made with a special titanium alloy. When combined with a beautiful, fine quality porcelain crown, a tooth implant can replace a lost tooth and give a patient their full smile back.
The Benefits of Using a Dental Implant for a Single Tooth Replacement
Other tooth replacement options for patients who have lost a single tooth are less durable and less permanent. Some require patients to remove the application from their mouths before they eat. For younger patients especially, this can cause embarrassment or insecurity. A dental implant is inserted directly into your gumline. It will never fall out of place or get lost, and it can last a lifetime alongside the rest of your natural teeth.
Dental implants look and feel completely natural. No one will be able to tell you ever lost a tooth. The synthetic tooth root keeps your jawbone healthy, and provides better benefits for your oral health. Dental implants are easy to care for and can be flossed and brushed along with your regular teeth.
Replacement Options for Multiple Teeth
For patients who have lost multiple teeth, implant dentistry can be used to restore their smile. The loss of multiple teeth can occur due to accident, gum recession, or other tooth loss related issues. No matter how you might have lost your teeth, we can offer a meaningful, beautiful, replacement option with our dental implants. We can use dental implants to restore your teeth individually and give you a complete smile with full jawbone support, or if the amount of teeth you have lost is very substantial, we can replace your teeth with implant supported dentures at our Derry, NH, dentist office.
Bridges and other restorative dentistry services can be used to replace multiple teeth, but implant dentistry services are the only restorative dentistry procedure that replaces the tooth root along with the outer portion. When you lose your teeth, the bone underneath the gaps can start to deteriorate because it lacks tooth root support. Dental implants retain that support and keep your bone healthy and strong. By preventing this deterioration, dental implants help you retain your natural, beautiful facial structure and avoid the sunken appearance commonly associated with patients who have lost their teeth.
Implant Supported Dentures
For patients who have lost almost all of their teeth, implant supported dentures can be used to get them their smile back. Implant supported dentures are a permanent solution to traditional dentures that require no adhesive, and won’t click or slip out of place. Implant supported dentures are more comfortable than traditional dentures and are designed to fit each patient’s mouth perfectly.
