implant-retained dentureAlthough your teeth can last for a lifetime, tooth loss is a problem for many Americans. In fact, 120 million people in the U.S. are missing at least one tooth while another 35 million do not have any natural teeth remaining. Every tooth you lose is devastating to your oral health and your daily life. Now, you have several options to rebuild a beautiful, functional smile. At Muskingum Valley Oral Surgery, Dr. Jeff Lee provides the latest solutions for multiple tooth replacement.

Non-Implant Tooth Replacement Options

  • Fixed Bridge: We take an impression of your mouth to create a bridge of prosthetic teeth. They are carefully crafted to match the appearance of your natural ones. The bridge is held in place by reshaping the adjacent teeth to bond dental crowns to them.
  • Partial Dentures: Several missing teeth can be replaced with a denture. Prosthetics are held in a gum-colored base that is attached to a metal framework. This allows it to clip or clasp onto your remaining teeth to hold it in place.
  • Full Dentures: An entire arch is replaced using a full denture. An impression of your mouth is needed to create your custom-fit acrylic base, which features your prosthetic teeth. It is held to your gum tissue using suction or an adhesive.

The Dental Implant Process

Unlike other options, dental implants replace both the root and the crown. An implant post is surgically placed into your jawbone to mimic the root. This encourages new bone growth, allowing the two to fuse together. The number of posts needed varies depending on how many teeth you are replacing.

After your jawbone fuses to the posts, special fixtures called abutments are attached to each post. These are necessary to connect your custom-made restoration. The process can take several months, but each step is vital to ensuring the long-term success of your new smile. With the right aftercare, dental implants have the potential to last for a lifetime.
