Restore Your Missing Teeth With Dental Implants

Attaining a healthy, gorgeous, and long-lasting smile is easier than ever. With their state-of-the-art technology and expert clinical skills, dentists Dr. Maryann Jacko, Dr. Jonathan Siefker, and Dr. Leah Divito of Wellington Dental, located in Wellington, OH, can promise a comprehensive dental exam and discuss if dental implants are right for you.

What Are Dental Implants?

Whether you're dealing with missing teeth due to decay, injury, or disease, a high-quality dental implant replacement is a great way to restore your smile. Unfortunately, losing teeth is not an uncommon occurrence that leads to gaps in smiles that could cause further issues down the road. 

Dental implants provide a titanium root surgically implanted into your jaw bone to hold a dental crown, bridge, or a set of dentures securely in place. As a root, they replace a whole tooth allowing bone growth and increase bone density in the jaw.

Dental implants are not visible after placement since they exist below the tooth's gum, securing the crown, bridge, or denture above. 

Dental implants can last a lifetime. Once Dr. Jaccko, Dr. Siefker, or Dr. Devito, Wellington, OH, place the implant and prosthetic tooth, they will function like a normal tooth allowing you to eat and speak freely while filling in the gaps of your smile.

Types of Dental Implants

Single Tooth Replacement

Most common is the single dental implant designed to replace a missing tooth, and it requires one post and one crown. This procedure is best if you only have one missing tooth or if you have multiple missing teeth non-adjacent to one another.

Dental Bridge: Multiple-Teeth Replacement

A dental bridge consists of two crowns on either side of your missing tooth gap, with an artificial tooth held by two crowns on either side. Instead of the crowns attaching to the teeth, an implant-supported dental bridge has crowns that connect to dental implants.

The process is very similar to a single dental implant. However, the teeth missing in the middle of the gap will not receive a dental implant. 

A dental bridge supported by implants provides a secure tooth replacement without the cost of replacing each tooth.

Implant-Retain Denture: Replacing All Your Teeth

What happens when you are missing a majority or all of your teeth? In this case, an implant-retain denture may be your best solution. A denture is an artificial arch of teeth that rests on your gums, giving the appearance of a complete set of teeth. Instead of using removable dentures, dental implants can permanently secure your denture onto your gums.
