Learn More About Dental Implants in Mounds View, MN
A dental implant is a tooth replacement method that closely mimics your tooth's natural structure. An implant has three main parts: a titanium implant, a connector called an abutment, and a crown or denture that covers both the abutment and implant. At Mounds View Family Dental, Dr. Sabry Sharara offers implant dentistry services, including the creation of the crown or denture that covers the dental implant. Through implant dentistry services at his Mounds View, MN dentist's office, Dr. Sharara gives patients a full, even smile.
What Are the Advantages of Dental Implants Versus Other Method
The chief methods for replacing missing teeth are dental implants, a dental bridge, or dentures. A dental bridge can replace multiple missing teeth, but requires placing crowns over the nearby teeth, which involves making changes to surrounding healthy teeth. Dentures require removal, cleaning, and securing with adhesive on a daily basis.
Some reasons a patient may choose Mounds View dental implants over other methods include:
- The dental implant is a permanent tooth replacement method that will not slip out of place.
- The dental implant does not require making changes to surrounding healthy teeth.
- Dental implants encourage jawbone growth
- Dental implants, unlike dentures, will not slip out of place.
Dental implants are a lifelong solution for tooth replacement.
How Do I Know If I'm a Candidate for Dental Implants?
Dr. Sharara can help you determine if you are a dental implant candidate. During your consultation, Dr. Sharara will examine your gum tissue and determine whether you have enough jawbone for the dental implant to successfully be secured. Dr. Sharara will examine your teeth and gums in his Mounds View, MN dentist office. He will also utilize X-ray imaging to identify whether you have enough jawbone for the implant to grow around. For patients with minimal jawbone, bone-grafting can be performed in order to strengthen the jawbone for implants. Once your implants are fully integrated, the jawbone will act as a base to support the new tooth.
What Dental Implant Types Are Available?
Dr. Sharara can prepare a dental implant that replaces a single tooth, multiple teeth, or an entire upper and/or lower dental arch. Known as overdentures, a full and fixed set of dentures can replace an entire dental arch, meaning you do not have to deal with removable dentures that slip or slide out of place. Dental implants can offer a life free from denture adhesives and increased confidence knowing that your dental implants are secure and natural-looking.
