Benefits of Dental Implants
While bridges and dentures make affordable options to address missing teeth, implants offer distinct advantages that improve upon the traditional design. These benefits include:
- Stability – Missing teeth can result in bone resorption, causing in an aged appearance. Implant posts integrate with the jawbone and support its renewed density. Once implant restorations attach to the posts, they remain stable and do no slippage.
- Comfort – Traditional dentures loosen over time due to the loss of jawbone density. Speaking and eating become make wearing dentures uncomfortable. Dental implants support permanently affix dentures to the smile, restoring healthy function.
- Performance – Restorations supported with dentures supply greater force and offer more control when speaking and eating. Additionally, they improve long-term oral health and help patients keep their smile beautiful and healthy.
Implant Placement and Restorations in Santa Barbara
Dental implants can replace a single missing tooth up to an entire arch. We offer a range of options personalized to each patient’s needs. Dr. Montgomery provides the following restorative opportunities:
Single Implants –For patients missing a single tooth, there is no need for a fixed bridge that requires the alteration of neighboring healthy teeth. A dental implant fits directly into the gap and acts as the new tooth root, restoring structure and performance.
Implant-Supported Bridges – If you are missing a row of teeth, multiple implant posts and a prosthetic made of several new teeth (a custom bridge) can be placed. Our implant-supported bridges offer stability and permanency over traditional bridges.
Implant-Supported Dentures – This option offers those with severely compromised teeth a way to refashion their entire smile. Four to eight implants secure a denture in place, allowing its user to speak and normally eat once again.
