Video FAQ: What is a Dental Implant?

September 30, 2020

Filed under: Dental Implants,Video FAQs — Dr. Erin Page @ 3:17 am

When you lose a tooth you have three options: 1) you can utilize a bridge to anchor onto two neighboring teeth, a removable partial denture, or restore a tooth to its most natural state using a dental implant.

A dental implant uses a titanium screw placed in the jaw bone with an abutment attached to a crown. Dental implants are great restorations that mimic natural teeth and allow patients to enjoy the benefit of ultimate function and aesthetics.

Video FAQ: How Can Dental Implants Improve My Dentures?

Many of our dental patients complain about their dentures. Common issues such as slipping, sliding and general discomfort lead to decreased self-confidence and quality of life. There is a solution to stabilize your dentures: dental-implant retained prosthetics (dentures).

At Capital Smiles, our talented dentists can locate an area, usually near the canine region of the jaw, to add two implants (sometimes four implants are needed depending on bone density). These implants are able to fix your denture securely in place, completely eliminating any movement whatsoever. Eat, speak, laugh, and eat in complete comfort! Best of all, your denture is still removable for easy maintenance and cleaning.

Are you ready to finally upgrade your denture? We’re ready to show you how and dramatically increase your quality of life. Our practice has been serving friends and neighbors in the Capital District since 1982, and we’ve established ourselves as a regional dental implants leader.
