Implants are a remarkable advancement in dentistry. Absolute Dental Care has used implant dentistry to help many patients in and around Nixa, Missouri, seeking “dental implants near me.”
A single dental implant can complete the smiles of those missing one tooth. For those missing all teeth, as few as four strategically-placed implants can support a full-arch replacement in either the top or bottom jaw. Such “full-arch” implants may be used to support the replacement of every tooth in the upper or lower arch.
The prosthetic teeth and gum tissue may be part of an upper or lower denture. Some folks who are completely toothless can benefit from both upper and lower dentures for full-mouth rehabilitation.
Implants are the only tooth replacement that mimics natural teeth. The prosthetic teeth in conventional dental bridges and dentures rely on either neighboring teeth, natural suction, or denture adhesives for their stability. Once positioned in the jawbone, the implant heals and becomes a part of the jaw, supporting the prosthetic tooth. For full arch tooth replacement, a minimal number of implants can support a maximum number of prosthetic teeth.
Our dentist, Dr. Todd Anderson, has invested in onsite diagnostic technology and advanced surgical capabilities. So, patients can trust that their implants will be positioned precisely to make the most out of available bone in the jaw.
Additionally, our onsite denture lab helps to support the most natural-looking, feeling, and functioning dental prosthetics. Teeth designed and fabricated at our office do not look plastic or “fake.” Plus, our patients get the most out of their new teeth due to our use of advanced tooth replacement methods and options.
Implant-supported crowns, bridges, and dentures are:
Implant dentures retain their stability and fit because the bone remains healthy, eliminating the need for ongoing adjustments such as relining or rebasing.
