Dental Implant Restoration
Dental implants get used to replacing missing tooth roots. For replacement teeth that are fixed or removable, implants offer a sturdy base. We attach dental implants already installed with implant restorations such as crowns, bridges, and dentures.
To develop a specialized treatment plan to restore both functionality and beauty, Dr. Toland collaborates with a dental implant specialist. We will create an attractive and functional implant restoration and then attach it to the implant anchor when the dental implant implantation has healed.
Implant Supported Bridges
When three or more adjacent teeth are lost, a bridge supported by implants can fill the gap. Two implants are needed for this restoration to support the porcelain bridge. The bridge offers patients a practical and aesthetically pleasing alternative to their original teeth.
What are the advantages of an implant supported bridge?
Implant-supported bridges are an excellent way to restore several missing teeth because of the natural appearance and feel of the porcelain and the functional stability.
Traditional bridges get supported by the teeth on either side of the gap created by lost teeth. Instead of the neighboring teeth, an implant-supported bridge uses two or more dental implants. When a bridge is attached to natural teeth, the natural teeth must be prepared for crowns and put under additional stress that could be harmful. Especially if the surrounding bone structure, tooth, roots, or crown are already impaired. Your missing teeth were replaced by a dental implant-supported bridge, which didn’t put any more strain on your healthy teeth.
Implant Supported Dentures
Implant-supported dentures may be a better option than conventional dentures for patients who are missing most or all of their teeth. The use of two or more implants is necessary for this solution. It is advised to use a minimum of four implants to replace arch dentures. Jaw bone density is one of the most crucial determining elements, and it is one of several that affect eligibility for this solution.
The acrylic base of conventional dentures rests directly on the gums and gets secured with paste or adhesive.
Why should I consider implant-supported dentures over traditional dentures?
In comparison to conventional dentures, this method has many benefits. This option is simple to maintain, can mimic the appearance and feel of real teeth, and stays put because the implants will serve as anchors. The characteristic rocking or gum sensitivity of dentures won’t get felt.
Dental implant implantation can also help improve the sunken look that can develop with bone loss in the jaw by promoting bone growth around the implant. Future bone loss can get avoided with the aid of this procedure.
Full Arch with Only Four Implants
With this treatment, individuals with an entirely edentulous (toothless) upper or lower arch can replace every tooth in that arch with just four implants serving as anchors.
