Do you have teeth missing or so decayed that they're nearly gone?
If so, you know how hard it is to flash a winning grin, as your unsightly teeth take the focus of your family pictures in a bad way. But at Martinsville Smiles Family Dentistry, your smile can be renewed through the implementation of dental implants, which are synthetic structures placed in the tooth where the root would normally be. Using this technique, Dr. Crabtree and his staff of trusted dental technicians can anchor specially-made implant(s) to your surrounding jawbone to serve as a strong starting foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge to go on top of it, completing your smile's full restoration! Check out why dental implants might be the answer for restoring your winning smile below:
Implants Are Believable
Replace Multiple Teeth — When you have more than one tooth missing, implants provide an ideal replacement mechanism. You don't even need one implant for every missing tooth. Instead, implant teeth can act as supports for fixed bridgework. For example, if you are missing three teeth in a row, we can place two implants, one on either side of the gap, and a crown in between that has no implant underneath. That way, you won't need to use any of your remaining natural teeth as bridge supports, which could weaken them and make them more susceptible to decay.
Replace All Teeth Permanently — Implants can support an entire arch of upper or lower replacement teeth that are fixed into the mouth and are never removed. Sometimes the new teeth can be supported by as few as 4 implants. It's comparable to the structure of a table, which only needs 4 legs to hold it up. In cases where jawbone density and volume have deteriorated, 5 or 6 implants might be needed to support a row of 10 to 12 teeth. Dental implant replacement teeth protect your jawbone, won't slip, and should last a lifetime.
