How many teeth can be replaced with dental implants in the West Palm Beach area?

Tooth Restoration Options from doctors in West Palm Beach

Patients in West Palm Beach and the surrounding communities are often interested in learning more about tooth restoration options. When patients are introduced to the idea of dental implants, they may have questions, including “how many teeth can be replaced with dental implants?”

Essentially, all of the teeth within the smile can be replaced with dental implants.

Dental implants are titanium posts that a dentist can place into the bone of the jaw. The jawbone can grow and wrap around the implant, resulting in stability. After this, the dental implant can be restored in a number of ways. A dental implant may be covered with an abutment and a dental crown to act as a single replacement tooth, while it may also act as an anchor for a dental bridge to replace two or three teeth. Patients who have full dentures and want a more stable foundation may be interested in learning about implant-supported dentures. These full dentures replace an entire arch of teeth and snap into place over the implants. In this situation, the dental implants can replace all the teeth in the smile by providing a structure to support the dentures.

Dental implants are incredibly versatile, and our team likes to use them for patients who are ready to take charge of their smiles. However, not everyone is an appropriate candidate. Patients who are best for dental implants are those who have enough bone structure to hold the implants in place successfully. If there is not enough bone, the implant may be unsuccessful. Patients who are serious about dental implants may want to consider the advantages of using bone grafting.

"Unfortunately, over the years my teeth had deteriorated and were in very poor shape. As you can guess it had been many years since I had been to a dentist. Fortunately, my doctor recommended Dr. Keith. Dr. Keith and her staff put me at ease and answered all my questions and laid out a plan of what was needed. I was happy to find they were of the holistic mindset and felt very much they were people I could trust with my serious dental conditions. As we have worked through this over the past months I find they are always there for me. If I have an issue here or there, they take it seriously and quickly have me in to correct it as best as possible. They were very careful in removing previous mercury fillings, taking measures to ensure I was not inhaling mercury during extraction. They keep me well informed of what is happening each step of the way which makes me confident in them and in how I am proceeding. I would recommend Dr. Keith to anyone who requires great and friendly dental care." ~Steven
