For patients who have lost one or more teeth, dental implants can be an effective treatment option. Dr. Gregory Moore, a dentist in Johnson City, TN, offers both traditional and mini dental implants and can develop a customized treatment plan to address your missing teeth and other oral health issues. Dental implants offer many benefits and can help restore your confidence in your smile.

Permanent Dental Implants

A dental implant starts with a strong titanium base surgically placed into the jawbone. The implant can form a secure base for an individual crown and multiple implants can support permanent dentures. Implants can be effective for patients with a few missing teeth or those who require full arch replacement. Whereas traditional dentures are removable and may require adjustment over time, implant-supported dentures offer most patients a permanent solution to missing teeth.

Mini Dental Implants

If you are generally in good health and have a healthy level of jaw bone tissue, Dr. Moore may recommend mini dental implants. These implants work similarly to traditional implants but the placement process is less invasive and offers many patients a faster recovery time. Dr. Moore can use mini implants to replace a single tooth or support permanent dentures.

Benefits of Implants

Traditional and mini dental implants offer many advantages to patients. Implants provide a permanent solution to missing teeth and look and function just like natural teeth. Most patients recover from the treatment quickly and have no eating restrictions. Because the implant is placed into the jawbone, it functions like a tooth root and stimulates healthy bone growth. This helps maintain your oral health and reduces the chances of the implant failing.
