What Are Dental Implants?
Getting dental implants is the most realistic tooth restoration available when it comes to rehabilitating your smile. Each artificial tooth root is set into the jaw, where teeth have fallen out or have been extracted. As your body forms new bone around the implant, it integrates with your jaw and fuses into place.
Types of Implant Restorations
Depending on the number of teeth that you need to replace, our implant dentists in Hopkins, MN may recommend one of the following:
Single Crowns — For a traditional tooth replacement with implants, we place a porcelain crown on top of the individual implant abutment. Your new “tooth” is easy to care for; just brush and floss it every day.
Implant Supported Bridge — Instead of wearing a partial denture, you can get two implants to support a bridge up to 3 or 4 teeth long.
Stabilized Dentures — Implants make it possible to secure a full mouth denture in place, so there’s no rocking or slipping while you eat. Stabilized overdentures can be removed, while hybrid designs are permanently affixed in place on top of your implants. As few as 2-4 implants are usually all that’s needed.
