Dental Implants Done Right
Restorations supported by dental implants provide several advantages over traditional restorations which makes dental implants a great option.
Dental implants are a great alternative to natural teeth that retain the look, feel, and function of natural teeth. Both stable and strong, they allow patients the freedom to eat the foods they love without the worry of damage or accidental dislodging.
Retain Tooth Structure
An implant-supported dental bridge requires no crowns, eliminating the need to alter the structure of surrounding teeth. The bridge attaches directly to the implant, which provides a sturdy anchor for the replacement teeth.
Dental implants fuse securely with the bone of the jaw, they provide a strong, stable hold that keeps dentures from wobbling, clicking, or falling out. The fit of the patient’s denture remains secure because the jaw experiences no deterioration.
Restorations supported by dental implants provide several advantages over traditional restorations. This makes choosing them easy for most of our patients.
For a single dental crown, the patient will receive one implant. The doctor will use a strong but safe dental adhesive to permanently bond the crown to the implant.
The doctor permanently attaches implant-supported bridges to one or more dental implants. This provides a secure restoration, while eliminating the need to remove structure from healthy teeth.
Partial or Complete Dentures
The most common type of implant-supported dentures, these removable dentures snap on and off of your dental implants with ease, allowing for easy cleaning of the dentures and the patient’s mouth.
All-on-4® dentures offer a solution to patients who may not qualify for traditional implant-supported dentures because of low bone density in their jawbone. The doctor places four implants in the front of the jaw, where the bone is naturally denser. Rather than snapping the dentures onto the implants, the doctor permanently attaches them, so that only another dentist can remove them. Patients who wear these dentures report that they most closely resemble having a full set of natural teeth.
Immediate Load Implants
The placement and restoration of dental implants usually requires two surgeries. During the first surgery, the doctor surgically places the implants, then the patient waits three to six months for the implants to heal and fuse with the bone in the jaw. Once that happens. The patient returns for a second surgery and the doctor exposes the implants from under the gums in order to attach the restorations.
The immediate load implant procedure, however, requires just one surgery, during which the doctor places the implants, then restores them with a denture or temporary crown.
If a patient needs a dental crown, the doctor will typically place a temporary restoration. We will carefully design the temporary crown so that it does not come into contact with opposing teeth, because even the slightest microscopic movement of the implant can affect the osseointegration process and cause the implant to fail.
Patients receiving implant-supported dentures can typically have their permanent restoration placed immediately, as any bite force is distributed among all of the implants, which are locked in place by the denture.
Why Every Smile Matters
Our caring dentists at Every Smile understand that tooth loss can affect the health, appearance, and function of your smile, as well as your self-confidence. We are pleased to provide dental implants to replace missing teeth and restore your smile to its full potential. A dental implant is a tooth replacement option that permanently replaces both the root and crown of the missing tooth.
The implant process begins with the surgical implantation of the implant post into the jawbone. This replaces the missing tooth root and forms a strong foundation for the dental implant restoration. After a period of healing, we will place an attachment called an abutment on the post.
The implant restoration is then fixed to the top of this to replace the crown of the tooth, or the part that is visible above the gums. Based on your personal dental needs, the implant restoration may be a dental crown, a bridge, or a complete or partial denture.
Once completed, a dental implant in Chandler, Arizona, can greatly enhance your smile. Because the implant replaces the entire tooth, it looks, feels, and functions just like your natural tooth. With proper dental care, your implant can last a lifetime.
