Single or Multiple Dental Implants
Dental implants consist of titanium posts that are inserted into the jaw bone. After a healing period of 3 to 6 months, the posts are capped off with permanent dental crowns. The restoration is made from a highly durable ceramic material that is custom-fabricated to look like your natural missing tooth. Dental crowns are color-matched and shaped to blend seamlessly with your adjacent teeth. They are also stain and decay resistant.
Multiple consecutive teeth can be replaced with a dental bridge. A dental bridge can be secured using dental implants. Unlike removable bridges, secured bridges do not require the removal of healthy tooth structure. After the implants are placed they will be allowed to heal for 3-6 months. During this time patients are typically fit with a temporary bridge depending on the location of missing teeth. Once the implants have healed, patients will receive a final custom-designed dental bridge.
Whole arches of teeth can be replaced with dentures. New or existing dentures can be secured using dental implants to improve the comfort, function and appearance of the denture. Implant-secured dentures also offer many benefits to patients. This solution:
- Supports bone retention
- Supports gum health & prevent gum recession
- Improves function of bite
- Provides a more stable and secure denture
- Improves speech & chewing mobility
