Washington Heights Dental Implants

Our team uses dental implants to act as the roots of your teeth and a separate crown is placed on top to restore missing teeth. Implants will give you a permanent replacement that looks and feels like a natural tooth and is easier to clean than a bridge.

The dental implant includes:

  • A screw-like post made of titanium placed in the bone
  • An abutment that connects the implant to the crown
  • A crown that looks and feels like a natural tooth

Types of Dental Implant Treatments

Dental implants can be used in different ways according to a patient’s needs. 

Different types of implant restorations include:

  • Single implant and crown
  • Implant-supported bridge
  • Implant-supported dentures
  • Entire arch replacement with four to six implants

Using Dental Implants to Improve Oral Health

Dental implants can be an excellent option for patients looking for a whole new set of teeth, but single dental implants to replace all of your teeth is not recommended. Another option would be removable dentures, which have been a popular option since the early days of modern dentistry. Our team may also ask you to consider implant-supported dentures or All-on-X treatment, a far more efficient option for patients that need a full set of replacement teeth.

Whether you need just one dental implant to replace one missing tooth or a complete set of implant-supported dentures, Fort Washington Dental Associates provides top-quality service. Our experienced dentists offer exceptional care to patients of all ages, with state-of-the-art dental services and equipment to smooth the process.
