If you’ve recently lost one, some, or all of your teeth, you should consider getting replacement teeth. The longer you go without teeth, the higher your risk of suffering bite problems, bone atrophy, as well as a decline in your quality of life. Edgartown Dental Group provides numerous tooth replacement alternatives, including dentures, dental bridges, and tooth implants.
Teeth implants, or dental implants, are artificial tooth roots that support pontic or false teeth. Dental implants are manufactured from titanium alloy. Titanium is preferred since it integrates or fuses well with bone, in a process known as osseointegration, and is also well-tolerated by gum tissues.
During your consultation, our dentist will evaluate your needs and determine the best type of implants for you. We offer conventional implants as well as immediate load implants and All-on-4® implants.
Are you missing all of your teeth? Thanks to All-on-4 dental implants, you can get four implants to support an entire arch of teeth. Dentures that are supported by implants offer enhanced stability and comfort. When you choose All-on-4 dental implants, you will not need an implant for each of your missing teeth.
For some patients, staying without teeth for an extended period feels awkward and embarrassing. Fortunately, we also have immediate load dental implants. As the name suggests, immediate load dental implants are used to replace your teeth immediately after extraction. This could be during the same appointment of your tooth removal, or a couple of weeks after.
Immediate dental implants allow you to smile with confidence soon after losing a tooth. We’ll place a temporary crown to finish off the restoration process and advise you on when to come back for a permanent dental crown.
Whether you require conventional, immediate, or All-on-4 implants, our dentist will begin with a thorough evaluation to understand your needs. The dentist then creates a personalized treatment plan that will be our guide as we work to reinstate the full function and aesthetics of your smile.
