Dental Implants Q & A      

               What are dental implants?

Dental implants are titanium posts that the team at Austin K. Brown, DDS fits into your jawbone to act as artificial teeth roots. They fuse to the bone and are the base for strong, sturdy, and reliable artificial teeth (crowns). 

Dental implants are an excellent option if you’re interested in natural-looking tooth replacements, whether for functional or cosmetic purposes.

Can you get multiple dental implants at once?

Austin K. Brown, DDS offers dental implants for every patient's needs, including both single and multiple implants, as well as full-mouth reconstructions. 

Single implants

Single implants use one implant and one crown to replace your natural tooth and serve as a great alternative to a bridge. 

A bridge holds a crown in place by cementing it to neighboring teeth. This requires that the team partially grind down these adjacent teeth. A crown held by an implant doesn't require that you compromise the health of any of your teeth.

Multi implants 

If you want to replace multiple missing teeth, your team can install implant-supported dental bridges. Implant-supported bridges work the same way as all dental implants and glean their support from your artificial teeth roots instead of teeth.

Unlike partial dentures, multi implants won’t move around in your mouth, and unlike regular bridges, you never have to worry about the cement deteriorating. 

Additionally, because implants bond with your bone, your gums and bones won’t recede around them. This is not only better for your comfort and health, but also for aesthetics.

What is full-mouth reconstruction?

Full-mouth reconstruction is the process during which Dr. Brown and his team rebuild or replace all of the teeth in your mouth. Full-mouth reconstruction offers you the chance to gain a beautiful, confident smile if you’re suffering from mouth problems like:

  • Severe tooth decay
  • Failing fillings in several teeth
  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Several missing teeth
  • Badly worn teeth

To construct your perfect smile, the team can employ a variety of restorative and cosmetic dental procedures and products, including implants, crowns, bridges, dentures, and veneers. They also take into consideration aspects of your smile that are important to you, like tooth color and size.

You deserve a life free from dental pain and imbued with all the confidence in the world. No matter your circumstances, Austin K. Brown, DDS has a solution for you.
