Dentists have been using implant overdentures as a removable prosthodontic solution for tooth loss for more than 30 years. These dentures provide better retention and stability, so wearers do not have to worry about the embarrassment of a smile that slips or teeth that seem to click and clack during a meal.

If you have one or more missing teeth, then there is only one question you need to answer: what is the best tooth replacement option for your smile? Finding the right one is essential for the well being of your oral and general health. Columbus dentist Dr. Walt Mick may recommend dental implants. After examining your mouth, teeth and jaw, he will be able to tell you whether or not you are an implant candidate.

Although there are other options for tooth replacement, nothing can match dental implants for longevity, stability and appearance. Dental implants are comprised of a small titanium post that is surgically embedded in your jawbone and a tooth restoration—porcelain crown, bridge or denture—that is attached to the implant. An implant restores your smile, your ability to chew and talk, and even stimulates healthy new bone growth so the shape of your jaw and face are maintained. However, you need adequate bone density to place the implant in the first place. If you happen to need to replace a tooth in the upper rear portion of your mouth, then Columbus implant dentist Dr. Mick may recommend a bone graft procedure through your sinus cavity.
