Replacing teeth is vital for your oral health. Missing teeth can lead to a degenerated jawbone, a change in facial structure, and irritated gums. This is why the dentists here at Nicholas Cosmetic Dental Center provide dental implants to replace missing teeth. Traditional implants and mini implants are available to allow the best options for our patients.
Traditional implants are full sized tooth replacements. They are better than bridges, because there is no reduction of healthy, adjacent teeth in order to place them. They are also better options than dentures, because there is no taking them out or having them slip around while talking or chewing.
Mini implants are great for tooth replacement in a smaller space. They are also quicker to install, often able to be completed within one day. Another use is a more stable base for dentures. By installing four to six mini implants along the gum line, a full set of dentures can be securely clicked into place.
Both types of implants are completely customized. They are created in a dental lab where they are made to fit perfectly with your nearby teeth and have the look and feel of a normal tooth. With good care, both types can last a lifetime.
If you are looking for permanent tooth replacement, dental implants may be the option for you! To schedule a consultation, call our Philadelphia, PA practice at (215) 279-1193 or visit our website, www.nicholascosmeticdentalcenter.com.
