Implant-Supported Dental Restorations
The defining characteristic of dental implants is the fact that the supportive, root-like posts are implanted into your jawbone. However, their purpose is to support a custom-designed, lifelike restoration to replace your lost tooth or teeth. This means the quality of your custom zirconia crown, bridge, or denture is just as important to your smile’s restoration. To help you enjoy your new smile faster and with minimal wait time, we can design and craft your restoration using advanced technology in our in-house lab.
Dental Implants and Crowns
Replacing a single lost tooth is important for several reasons. It not only restores your smile, but also reduces your risks of experiencing further tooth loss. A single dental implant post can be inserted where the tooth’s root once rested, restoring the stimulation in that area of your jawbone. Then, we can custom-design your crown to mimic the healthy size, shape, and appearance of the lost tooth, and secure the crown to the implant post. Together, a dental implant and crown create a complete and lifelike replica of a healthy, natural tooth and its root.
Dental Implants and Bridges
The more teeth you’ve lost, the greater your risks of losing more in the future. If you’ve already lost multiple adjacent teeth, then we may suggest placing multiple dental implant posts to support a custom dental bridge. A bridge consists of multiple replacement teeth, or pontics, and can be supported by one or several implant posts, depending on how many teeth you’ve lost. Like an implant and crown, an implant-supported bridge more accurately resembles the natural root-and-crown structures of your healthy, natural teeth. The implant posts also help reduce your risks of losing the healthy teeth that still remain.
Dental Implants and Dentures
If you’ve lost all of your teeth on your upper or lower dental ridge, then it may seem like preserving your jawbone and smile isn’t as important. However, the loss of your teeth and the degradation of your jawbone structure can continue to have resounding effects on your oral and overall health. Supporting a custom-designed denture on a series of dental implant posts helps you stem these consequences, as well as rebuild your smile, your bite function, your facial appearance, and your overall confidence.
