If you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed about your choices of smile rehabilitation, deciding on the right types of dental implants in Sherman Oaks may leave you feeling a bit exhausted. Why? Because there are multiple options to choose from!
Fortunately, this is a very good thing. It allows patients to get the very best care possible. Here are the basics that you need to know, when it comes to choosing the right type of restorations for your dental implants:
Removable Overdentures — Do you already have a full set of dentures, or need an affordable way to replace all your teeth at one time? Making a new set of overdentures (or retrofitting your current prosthesis) provides you with greater security and comfort when compared to wearing a traditional removable denture.
All-on-4 / Extended Hybridge / Teeth in a Day — This “full arch bridge” is like a denture that doesn’t take up the extra space in the roof of your mouth. Thanks to the integrity of implants, the entire prosthesis can be placed on as few as four of these artificial teeth (some people need five or six, depending on their situation.)
Single Tooth Implant Crowns — When you only need to replace one or two teeth here and there, a single implant and porcelain crown is what your dentist in Sherman Oaks will recommend. It’s the next best thing to having a real tooth all over again.
Implant Supported Bridges — If you have two or three teeth in a row that are missing, an implant bridge eliminates your need to wear a removable partial.
