Will dental implants work if I have full tooth loss?
Living with full tooth loss can be devastating. Even with removable dentures, it is not quite the same as having your natural teeth. At Tiger Family Dental, we hold no judgments and sympathize with your situation.
The good news is that dental implants are a great solution to full tooth loss, and you don’t even have to get a lot of implants!
What Are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is a small, titanium screw. Our top Sedalia, MO implant dentist implants this thin screw into your jaw, and it bonds with your jawbone after a few months. When bonding is complete, you are ready for a natural-looking restoration tooth.
In the event of full tooth loss, a few dental implant posts, usually about four, are strong enough to support an entire denture!
Because implant posts bond with your jawbone, they also support jawbone health—meaning your jawbone without tooth roots can diminish and leave you with a sunken appearance. Dental implant posts help combat this issue.
Also, with dental implant-supported dentures in Sedalia, MO, you don’t have to worry about slippage or adhesives.
