Discover The Transformative Power Of Dental Implants
Dental implants are one of the most transformative dental procedures that a patient can undergo. If you are considering dental implants, Brunswick dentist Dr. Guze and team would be happy to discuss the procedure with you and answer any questions that you may have. Dental implants can improve your quality of life in many ways, including by restoring your smile, improving your oral health, and helping you eat and speak more comfortably.
How dental implants came to be
The dental implant procedure has come a long way since its inception. The first dental implants were developed in 1952 by a Swedish orthopedic surgeon named Per-Ingvar Brånemark. Dr. Brånemark was studying how blood vessels could heal and grow around titanium rods that had been inserted into bone when he made the discovery that the bone would actually fuse to the titanium, forming a strong bond. This process, known as osseointegration, is what makes dental implants so successful.
While early dental implant procedures were not always successful, over time, advances in dental technology have made dental implants one of the most successful and predictable dental procedures available today.
Types of dental implants we offer
At Middle Bay Dental Associates, we offer three different types of dental implants: single dental implants, multiple dental implants, and full arch dental implants.
Single dental implants are the most common type of dental implant. They are used to replace a single tooth that is missing or has been damaged beyond repair. A single dental implant consists of a titanium screw that is placed into the jawbone, a dental abutment that is placed on top of the titanium screw, and a dental crown that is placed on top of the abutment.
Multiple dental implants are used to replace two or more missing teeth. Unlike single dental implants, which are placed individually, multiple dental implants are placed in groups of two or more. Multiple dental implants are often used to support a dental bridge or a full denture.
Full arch dental implants, also known as all-on-four dental implants, are used to replace an entire set of upper or lower teeth. Full arch dental implants consist of four titanium screws that are placed into the jawbone and a full dental arch that is placed on top of the screws. Full arch dental implants are often used to support a full denture.
