A number of different types of implants are available. If you are replacing multiple neighboring teeth, your dentist may recommend an implant-secured bridge or denture. Unlike traditional bridges, an implant does not require cutting nearby teeth and thus better preserves a patient’s remaining teeth. Implant-retained dentures are considerably more stable than traditional options as well, and can both improve the quality of chewing and eliminate slipping. #DentalImplants #SantaFeDentist

Implants require a certain amount of bone tissue to be successful. However, because tooth loss often leads to jawbone deterioration, many patients require procedures to improve their chances of success. Bone grafts and sinus lifts require additional surgeries, which contribute to the overall cost of the treatment. #DentalImplants #SantaFeDentist #OralSurgery

Implant-supported dentures are available as both full and partial restorations. This type of denture will snap directly onto dental implants, small posts that are surgically placed in your jaw. The implants will replicate the function of dental roots, providing an extremely stable base for your prosthetic. #SantaFeDentist #Dentist #Dentures #SantaFe87505

Wisdom tooth extraction can often prevent future problems, such as pain, infection, and dental crowding. To help reduce dry socket and post-treatment sensitivity, antibiotics and an antibiotic rinse are typically prescribed to use before the procedure. #Dentist #MaxillofacialSurgery

One of the biggest advantages is improved oral health. When a person loses a tooth, they lose stimulation from its root in that part of the mouth. As a result, the body determines that fewer nutrients are needed and redirect them elsewhere. The jawbone often begins to shrink. Because #DentalImplants replace both the tooth and the root, stimulation is restored and nutrients can be rerouted back to the mouth. Thus implants restore lost bone, prevent future tissue loss, and the shifting of neighboring teeth. #OralSurgery

It is usually best to preserve a permanent, natural tooth whenever possible. Sometimes, however, a badly damaged tooth cannot be saved. If the tooth has severe decay, for instance, then removing it can prevent surrounding teeth from becoming damaged. #Dentist
