Dental implants are an excellent restorative alternative for patients who have missing teeth or need tooth extraction because of advanced disease or decay. A dental implant is a threaded titanium post surgically implanted into the jawbone to restore misplaced tooth roots. Following surgery, you will receive a dental implant restoration. The doctors at our office can place your dental implants and introduce you to a prosthodontist to place your crown, bridge, or denture.
Your dental implant restoration might be a:
A crown is a rare replacement tooth that connects to a single implant abutment. Your provider cements the crown to the abutment and makes sure it fits snugly and looks natural.
A denture replaces several teeth. If you need to restore many teeth in a row, your provider can create your implant restoration with fewer implants than the one per tooth you’ll need for crowns.
Dental implant restorations provide several benefits that you can’t get from traditional bridges and other tooth replacement options. You might consider dental implant restoration because:
Patients have several choices when it comes to dental restoration types and materials. Patients who require the replacement of a single tooth will generally choose a dental crown. Patients with multiple missing teeth are better suited for a bridge or denture.
Porcelain and zirconia are durable, natural-looking materials used to make crowns, bridges, and dentures. Both of these materials are appropriate for use in the anterior and posterior regions of the jaw. Your prosthodontist will carefully choose the color of these restorations to complement your smile. In addition, both materials have a highly realistic translucency.
We can conduct an initial examination; identify what the problem is and how extensive it is. This will involve a physical examination along with X-rays so that we can determine the density of your jawbone. At that point, we will let you know if we can assist you or if you need to be referred to a Mountain View specialist. At Newmarket Dental Health, our focus is on your complete oral health and ensuring that you have access to the procedures you need.
For patients who need a tooth extraction, we propose the immediate placement of dental implants. In this procedure, the titanium rod is implanted into the jawbone directly following the extraction of a tooth. This helps to preserve the bone structure stimulated and anticipated future deterioration.
