Dental Implants in Lewiston Maine
A dental implant is a procedure often used to handle a missing tooth. When a primary (or baby tooth) falls out, your child can expect a visit from the tooth fairy and for their adult tooth to arrive in the near future. But when our adult teeth fall out, there are no spares left to be had. That is why dental implants are often used. If you have lost a tooth due to injury or simply age, we can help with a dental implant. We provide All-on-4 Implants® which can make getting multiple implants more affordable.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
Dental implants are an effective long-term solution for a missing tooth. Implants can be used to replace a tooth that has been knocked out or to replace a tooth that needs to be extracted due to damage or dental decay. Dental implants are designed to match the color of your teeth and look as natural as possible. And with All-On-4 dental implants, you can have multiple implants put in during a single treatment, making it easier and more cost-effective.
Should I Get A Dental Implant or A Bridge
This is a common question patients have. Both dental bridges and dental implants are often used for missing teeth and each have their own pros and cons. Dental bridges are not as durable as dental implants and may need to be repaired or replaced over time. Dental implants are a long-lasting solution that can last up to 30 years without needing additional appointments. Additionally many patients feel that implants look and feel more like their original teeth than dental bridges do. However, dental implants are often more expensive and are not covered by as many dental insurances. The best approach is to go to a dentist that provides multiple options and can help you make an informed decision that makes sense for your needs.
