caring for dental implantsIf you’re suffering from tooth loss, dental implants are the most preferred solution to replace missing teeth—no matter if you’re missing one tooth or all of your teeth. Implants are the perfect solution to fill the missing space using prosthetic teeth that are surgically inserted into the jawbone. While implants have a nearly 100 percent success rate, the success of your implants will depend on properly caring for dental implants.

all on fourAll on Four dental implants are a preferred choice for people who are missing all of their teeth on their top or bottom jaw. The implants are surgically inserted into the jaw bone just as with implanting a single tooth. However, instead of each tooth being implanted individually, a full arch dental prosthetic is used. The arch is implanted using only 4 implant posts, making it less invasive than replacing each tooth individually. While you may be thinking that it’s just another form of dentures, there are clear differences between regular dentures and this implant option. Piney Point Dental Implant Center is here to help you understand the differences.

And when tooth loss happens to your little one, you may hope that a viable replacement option can be found in dental implants. Unfortunately, it’s just not the case — but that doesn’t mean it never will be. Keep reading to learn why children are rarely good candidates for dental implants, and which other options that may suit them better until they are eligible for the treatment.

That’s why your Houston dental implant specialists are here to provide you with all possible options in dental implants to get your smile back to the one you know and love.
