While today’s advanced dental health care techniques can accomplish a lot for your smile, one thing there is no treatment for is re-growing any healthy, natural tooth structure you’ve lost. Fortunately, you can replace the structure with highly lifelike and biocompatible materials, boosting the long-term health and integrity of your smile. When it comes to replacing the roots of your lost teeth, for instance, receiving dental implants at our Ft. Worth, TX, office can offer a nearly lifelike solution to fully restoring your lost tooth structure.
The biocompatible implant post
Dental implant posts are what make the lifelike restorations different from conventional prostheses, like bridges and dentures. Implant posts are made from biocompatible titanium, and are designed to mimic the roots of your lost teeth. Each post is inserted into your jawbone, which fuses to the post’s surface as it heals over the next several months. This gives dental implant restorations a significant advantage – in addition to enhanced comfort and stability, the foundation of your replacement teeth will also provide your jawbone with vital stimulation to help keep it strong and healthy for life.
The lifelike restoration
The posts that support your replacement teeth are only one part of a lifelike implant restoration. The other part – the custom-designed restoration – is the visible prosthesis that sits on top of the implant posts and replaces the crowns of your lost teeth. Depending on the extent of your tooth loss, the restoration may simply be a single dental crown (to replace a single tooth) or a partial or full-arch dental bridge (for more extensive tooth loss). For optimal cosmetic and functional results, we’ll design your restoration according to precise, highly detailed digital images and measurements, and craft it using highly lifelike material, such as zirconium.
The value of in-house placement
At our office, we can perform both phases of your dental implant treatment under one single roof. With our extensive experience in implant dentistry and advanced, fully stocked in-house dental lab, we can plan your treatment and place your dental implant posts under one roof. We may also suggest placing a high-quality resin temporary restoration on top of your implant posts during the healing process so you can enjoy your newly restore smile even sooner.
