Restorative Dental Treatments
In many cases, affordable dental implants or an implant-secured restoration is the most ideal way to replace missing teeth. Implants offer a long-lasting and natural-looking solution for patients missing one or more teeth. Dental implants replace a missing tooth at the root and consist of a titanium post that is surgically inserted into the jawbone. After a healing period of 3 to 6 months, the post is capped off with a permanent abutment and dental crown. With the right dental care, implants can last a lifetime.
For patients missing one or several teeth, a custom dental bridge can be a beneficial restorative dental solution. Dental bridges are designed to close the gaps between missing teeth. A dental bridge can be secured using the existing teeth topped with crowns or with dental implants. Fixed dental bridges are a more stable and permanent modern solution.
A dental crown is a permanent restorative treatment that covers the tooth like a “cap”. Crowns are designed to provide protection and stability to teeth affected by damage or decay. In addition, dental crowns may be used as the last part of a dental implant.
Dentures and Partials
Dentures provide a great solution for the replacement of a full arch of missing teeth. Full dentures replace all upper or lower teeth and can be fixed or removable. However, we recommend using fixed dentures for a more permanent restoration. Full dentures that replace a full arch of missing teeth are secured by dental implants and have very little chance of slippage. Partial dentures are used to replace several missing teeth and are similar to a dental bridge. They can be secured using either dental crowns or dental implants.
