About Dental Implants
Dr. Cain can develop a treatment plan for anyone missing teeth. If you are missing one tooth, several teeth, or all your teeth, we have a dental implant solution for you. A dental implant is actually a titanium post that is surgically placed into the jaw bone. The implant will actually replace the tooth root which will help stimulate the bone to reduce the chance of deterioration.
number of implants that are placed will depend on the location and number of missing teeth. For patients missing one tooth, Dr. Cain will place one implant in the root canal that will be restored with a dental crown. If the patient is missing several consecutive missing teeth, at least two implants will be placed and restored with a dental bridge. Sometimes a person has an entire arch of missing or damaged teeth. In this situation, Dr. Cain will extract the damaged teeth and surgically place at least four implants. A custom made denture will be secured to the dental implants.
Dental implants are the most life-like missing tooth solution available. Since they are surgically implanted, they are more durable and stable than other solutions. Dental implant supported restorations do not require anchor teeth to be reduced and they will not slip around in your mouth making it difficult to eat or speak.
