Dental bridge vs Implant: Is there a difference?
While both dental bridges and implants are used to replace missing teeth, there are key differences between the two. Dental bridges rely on adjacent teeth for support, while implants are anchored directly into the jawbone. Implants offer a more stable and long-lasting solution, preserve bone structure, and do not require alteration of healthy teeth.
What should I expect during the dental implant healing stages?
The healing stages involve osseointegration, which is the process of the implant fusing with the bone. It typically takes several months for complete healing and integration to occur. During this time, you may be provided with a temporary restoration to maintain aesthetics and function. Our team will closely monitor your progress and guide the healing process.
Can I get full-mouth dental implants?
Yes, it is possible to get full-mouth dental implants. Also known as full arch dental implants or implant-supported full-mouth rehabilitation, are a comprehensive solution for individuals who have lost all or most of their teeth. This treatment involves the placement of multiple dental implants strategically throughout the jawbone to support a full set of fixed implant-supported dentures or bridges. This dental treatment can restore the appearance, function, and confidence associated with a complete set of teeth, providing a long-lasting and stable solution for those seeking to regain a beautiful smile and optimal oral health.
