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.
