At Springmill Family Dental, we want to provide the families of Westfield, Indiana with the best way to replace missing teeth that feels completely natural. Dental implants, usually made of titanium, are artificial roots and custom-made teeth that look completely natural. Not only do implants support single artificial teeth, but they are also a solution to provide stability for other dental appliances such as bridges and dentures.
Receiving an Implant
After a free dental implant consultation in Westfield, the dentist will recommend an implant procedure that best fits your circumstances. At our office, we specialize in different implant services:
A Single Tooth Dental Implant is the best type of implant if you only need a single tooth replaced. X Rays and molds are taken of the teeth and jaw to determine the space available for the implant. The implant is then surgically placed and after healing the crown or the artificial tooth, will then be placed onto the implant.
Implant-Supported Bridges are made to be stronger and more sturdy than traditional bridges that rely on anchor teeth. Dental bridges are a connected line of artificial teeth to replace a row of missing teeth. Unlike traditional bridges, implant-supported bridges are surgically placed into jaw bone making them stronger and able to withstand a greater bite pressure.
Implant-Supported Removable Dentures is a full set of dentures that are securely attached to implants for stability. Depending on your preference, our office provides both fixed and removable implant-supported dentures.
There are many benefits to receiving a dental implant for either a single tooth or a fixed solution for dental appliances including:
- Missing teeth can cause bone deterioration from lack of stimulation, single tooth implants allow for stimulation to continue.
- More secure bridges and dentures make it easier to function with artificial teeth.
- With proper oral hygiene dental implants can stay perfectly functioning for a lifetime.
- Dental implants and artificial teeth look completely natural making it hard to differentiate implants from natural teeth.
If you are looking for a natural and affordable way to restore your smile, dental implants are the solution for you. If you have any questions regarding Dental Implants please give us a call or come into our office in Westfield, Indiana for a free consultation.
