Replace Any Number of Teeth With Dental Implants
Whether you’re missing one tooth or all of them, dental implants are a great restorative solution. Unlike other teeth replacements, they keep the bone in your jaw from shrinking. Dr. Bill Ligon, a member of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, can place implants and restore them with:
- Dental Crowns – A single crown attached to a single implant replaces one tooth.
- Dental Bridges – Attaching a bridge to implants allows you to keep your nearby teeth intact, with no need to drill into them.
- Dentures – Unlike conventional dentures, implant-secured dentures stay firmly in place without adhesive.
If you’ve lost most or all of your teeth, Dr. Ligon can attach a full arch of teeth to just four implants in a procedure called All-on-4®. He can also use mini dental implants in situations where they will work better than full-size implants.
Find More Restorative Dental Options
Implants aren’t right for every smile. You’ll find other teeth replacement options here if you’d rather not get implants:
- Dental Bridge – We can attach a bridge to dental crowns supported by nearby teeth to fill a gap left by a single tooth or several missing teeth.
- Dentures – Traditional full dentures and partial dentures are available.
If your issue is damaged teeth, not missing teeth, you’ll find the right restorative solution:
- Tooth Fillings – Tooth-colored fillings repair cavities while blending easily into your smile.
- Dental Crown – Beautiful zirconia crowns can mend breaks, cracks, and very large cavities. They can also cover cosmetic imperfections like deep stains or misshapen teeth.
- Inlays and Onlays – These restorations can fix large cavities in cases where a full dental crown isn’t needed.
- Root Canals – This procedure lets you keep teeth that would otherwise be lost to infection.
