Dental Implants

Dental Implants

Are you missing one more of your teeth? Or are you struggling with dentures that don’t fit well or are uncomfortable? Dental implants solve one of the most common dental problems. While dental implants can replace individual missing teeth, they can also permanently mount dentures. Having a dental implant can give you a tooth that looks exactly like the one you lost, restore your smile, and enable you to eat comfortably. They are also long-lasting, and advances in technology for dental implants have made this procedure much easier. Rolling Oaks Dental in San Antonio can help you make your decision as to which dental implants are right for you.

What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a replacement for a tooth done in two steps. First, we insert a small titanium “root replacement” where the root of the tooth used to be. We use titanium because the body accepts it easily, and it fuses into the jawbone and provides a solid base for the replacement tooth. Then, once the implant has “settled,” we place a new tooth onto it. Dental implants have a lot of strength and durability, and once the procedure is complete, you can eat as if you had your natural tooth.

Replace Missing Teeth

Another great use of dental implants is to replace a series of missing teeth. If you are missing too many teeth for a bridge to be strong enough, then we can place a bridge between two dental implants. In this way, we can permanently mount an entire bridge — and you feel as if you have a full set of teeth again!

Single Tooth Implant

An implant can replace a gap from a lost tooth. With modern techniques, a single dental implant is a simple procedure, and you can have your tooth back easily. First, we will insert the implant in your mouth. Then, after the implant settles, we will place a special type of crown over it.

Two Implants to Support a Bridge

A single tooth implant can be used to replace several teeth in a row, using a “fixed bridge.” We place implants in your jaw and then connect a series of crowns in between them. In this way, we can replace a group of missing teeth with just two implants.

Several Implants to Support Dentures

“Full Mouth Restorations” or full arch replacements are a permanent alternative to removable dentures. With this procedure, we can often place two to six implants under an existing denture to hold it in place. If the denture is too worn, we may have to make a new denture to fit the implants.

All-On-4 Dental Implants

The process is completed in one visit and permits immediate functioning. All-On-4 uses four implants that are used to replace all of the teeth on the top or the bottom of your mouth.
