Taking care of your oral health is vital in ensuring your overall health. Missing teeth can affect your oral functions and lead to other health issues. Dental implants are ideal tooth replacement options that can restore normal eating and speaking abilities while enhancing the appearance of your smile. At ZM Dental in Tampa, FL 33618, we offer different dental implant options to suit your specific needs and preferences.
Dental Implant Options at ZM Dental
Single Tooth Dental Implants
A single dental implant can help if you are missing one tooth. This treatment involves surgically placing a titanium post into your jawbone. Once the implant fuses with the jawbone and heals, an abutment is attached over the post. This will help support the prosthetic dental crown that completes your smile.
Full Mouth Dental Implants
With age comes the possibility of losing your teeth. If you find yourself in this situation, you can opt for a full mouth of dental implants to restore your smile. A fixed denture mounted on dental implants is a permanent solution to restore your smile appearance. Full mouth implants eliminate the worry of your denture becoming loose or falling out. It will also help prevent the jaw bone from declining, especially if you have traditional dentures.
Mini Dental Implants
A mini dental implant is a small prosthetic root compatible with your body and smile. They are of smaller dimensions measuring about 1.8 to 3.3mm in diameter and 10 to 15mm in length. Mini dental implants are economical and can be used for full-fledged dental implants when the ridge is too narrow. The small dimensions of these implants give more flexibility when there is substantial bone loss.
All-On-Four Dental Implants
All-on-Four dental implants can reinstate an entire arch of teeth. These implants can replace both the upper and lower sets of teeth. The prosthetic teeth are secured with four strategically placed posts onto which the arch will be attached. Missing teeth can lead to deterioration of the jawbone. But dental implants can prevent this and encourage bone regeneration due to their simulation of the absent tooth root. Other tooth replacement options, like dentures, do not have this advantage as they restore missing teeth only above the gum line.
Teeth in a Day
Teeth in a day are unique dental implant-supported dentures. It is an option for those who need several teeth replaced or even a whole upper or lower set of teeth. The teeth in a day is a relatively new dentistry technique and allows you to acquire a complete arch of prosthetic teeth in a single appointment at our office. The procedure is minimally invasive and can restore your smile aesthetics immediately.
