Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?
For patients looking to replace missing or severely damaged teeth, dental implants can be an ideal option. The implant is designed to mimic a natural tooth. Surgical placement of the implant into the bone helps to protect and enhance jaw bone health and stability of neighboring teeth.
Innovation in implant dentistry has led to greater treatment versatility. Many patients previously considered ineligible for this restorative treatment are now able to enjoy the benefits yielded by dental implants. The development of preliminary treatments, such as bone grafting and ridge modification, and new varieties of implant appliances have helped patients with insufficient bone density enjoy successful treatment in the future.
Dental Implants in San Marcos
The condition of your smile determines the type of dental implant you will receive. At Smiles of San Marcos, we offer a number of different dental implant options, including:
Single Implants: The most common type of implant, this restoration consists of a single implant post covered by a crown restoration.
All-on-4 Implants: Ideal for patients looking to replace all teeth in an arch, All-on-4 restorations use four implant posts to support a full arch bridge. Unlike some implant-supported dentures, All-on-4 restorations are fixed to the posts and can only be removed by a dentist.
Implant-Supported Dentures: This implant variation is often recommended for patients seeking total arch replacement or those currently wearing removable dentures. Implant-supported dentures can use up to eight implants for a fixed denture or as few as two implants to support a specialized denture which can be removed for cleanings.
Mini Implants: For individuals with insufficient bone density, mini implants offer an alternative. While mini implants consist of the same parts as a full-sized implant, the post, abutment, and restoration, mini implant posts are smaller in diameter, making it a viable treatment option for patients that have been missing a tooth for a long time and have lower bone density.
When developing your dental implant treatment plan, our San Marcos implant dentist conducts a thorough evaluation of your dentition, including your medical history. During this free consultation, we also cover the financial aspect of treatment and answer any questions. For patients requiring preliminary bone grafts or jaw preparation treatments, Dr. Jain offers these oral surgeries in her San Marcos office, ensuring treatment consistency and success.
