Tooth Replacement Services
There are many options available when it comes to replacing missing teeth. Dental implants often give you the best opportunity to enjoy normal chewing and a full smile, although other possibilities deserve consideration. We understand that it can be difficult for you to navigate the complex possibilities. Because of their experience in restorative dentistry, our doctors can find solutions for any situation.
Implant-supported dentistry is a durable option. It allows you to grow new teeth in a way that’s as natural as possible. Implant-supported dentistry is a method of placing teeth in the same place that supported them. It will give you the strength and function of natural teeth. Modern porcelains look so realistic that you might forget that they are not your natural teeth. When more than one tooth is missing, dentures can be attached to implants. Implants will give you a smile because of the stability and confidence they provide.
Our doctors use the most recent technology to gather all necessary data to plan your restorative case. The latest technology is used to collect data, including digital x-rays, 3D mapping and models, and photographs. To bring your case together, our doctors work with highly-respected specialists. They are the captain of the whole plan.
Many patients find the procedure of implant placement more accessible than they anticipated. The modern dental anaesthetic numbs the site, and experienced hands carefully place the implant. A tiny guide hole provides a path for threading a small implant cylinder into place. The sterile piece is inserted into an exact location, and a smooth cover, or healing cap, protects the implant during the healing period.
In some cases, a temporary or permanent crown may be inserted at the time of surgery.
Implants can’t withstand regular bite forces until the bone has integrated fully into the implant body. Our doctors will help you decide what will work best during the initial healing period, ensuring you’re able to function while still protecting your implants. This period usually lasts 3-6 months as the bone grows around the implant. Most patients experience minimal discomfort after placement, especially compared to an extraction.
A well thought out a treatment plan that includes implants creates the opportunity for different restoration options.
After the healing period, crowns or bridges are custom-made and attached to the implants with small screws or dental cement.
Dental bridges are a popular choice to replace missing teeth. There are many options to bridge gaps in your smile with dental implants. Implants made of resilient, natural-looking porcelains can be used to bridge gaps of any size.
Sometimes, a removable appliance can be the best option to replace missing teeth. Our doctors will help you determine whether a partial or complete denture is best for your mouth. For unsurpassed stability and confidence, you can use a combination of dentures and dental implants.
