Improving Restorations with Dental Implants
Dental implants stabilize your prosthetics. Titanium posts are placed in the space where the roots of teeth once were, replacing the supporting structure of teeth and jaw bone.
When a tooth is missing from its socket, the jaw goes through a process of resorption, causing atrophy and shrinkage over time. Replacing a tooth’s root prevents accelerated resorption from taking place. Additionally, the biocompatible titanium posts fuse with the jaw bone to generate a united support system.
An abutment affixes the restoration onto the new tooth root, completing your replacement tooth. Dental implants can be used with the following restorations:
Single-unit crowns replace a missing tooth anywhere in the smile. This is can be a great option for patients seeking a replacement tooth immediately after an extraction.
Multi-unit bridges restore the structure of a complete smile by replacing a row of teeth using two to three dental implants. Dental post allows the preservation of existing teeth and generates its support directly from the jaw bone.
Implant-supported dentures can replace an entire arch of teeth using anything from four to six dental implants. We offer All-on-4 as a convenient option for completely replacing an entire arch of teeth.
