Dental Implants Q & A

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are titanium posts that Broadmoor Dental surgically sets into your jawbone to function as artificial tooth roots. After your dentist places them, the dental implants gradually fuse with your natural bone.

Once the fusion is complete, dental implants are sturdy and reliable bases for bridges, crowns, or dentures. Dental implants offer you advantages such as:

Durability

If you take care of your dental implants, they can last decades or even a lifetime.

Comfort

Dental implants are more comfortable than removable dentures and easier to care for. Because they don’t slide around, they also make it easier for you to eat and talk.

Mouth health

Unlike some other dental prosthetics, dental implants don’t require that your team file down your teeth. In addition to causing less initial damage, dental implants also allow space between your teeth, so that you can floss with ease.

What types of dental implants are available to me?

Broadmoor Dental offers a variety of implant types, including:

Single Tooth Replacement

If you’re suffering the loss of just one tooth, the practice can place an individual implant and top it with an attractive dental crown.

Multiple tooth replacement

Multiple tooth replacement implants support bridges and dentures for people missing most or all of their teeth.

All-on-4®

All-on-4 is an innovative procedure that allows your dental team to restore your teeth by placing a minimal amount of implant posts. Instead of requiring posts at every spot you’re missing teeth, All-on-4 requires just four posts on the top of your mouth and four on the bottom. Once they’re in place, your team can attach full sets of upper and lower teeth to the implants.

What happens if my dental implant no longer fits right?

If your dental implant becomes damaged, loose, or ineffective in any way, don’t panic. As the years pass, it’s normal for your teeth and tissues to move. When this happens, your implant no longer looks natural, as it doesn’t move in step with your natural teeth.

If you think this has happened or if your implant has become damaged, come into Broadmoor Dental so the practice can repair your implant. The practice works with local laboratories to repair or replace your implant with quality and efficiency.

Dental implants give you the freedom to be you again, whether that means smiling with all of your teeth or eating corn on the cob with confidence. If you’re interested in dental implants or you’re seeking dental implant repairs, Broadmoor Dental is the place for you. To schedule your appointment, call the practice or reach out online.
