The Benefits of Dental Implants
Implants are second only to natural teeth in terms of the benefits they provide to the health and stability of the jaw. Dr. Scott & Dr. Brad guides the treatment for patients in need of dental prosthetics, helping them to receive implant placement with the support of an oral surgeon or periodontist.
After placement, the implant will integrate with the jawbone and provide the ideal foundation for a restoration. This also supports the long term health of the jaw and prevents the resorption of the bone that regularly occurs after the loss of teeth. As an independent restoration, dental implants do not affect the health or stability of the neighboring teeth, and can last for a lifetime with proper care.
Implant Restorations We Provide
After implants have been placed, Dr. Theurer provides a number of restorations to help patients regain the appearance and function of their smiles. The types of implant restorations that we provide include:
Crowns: Aesthetic dental crowns such as zirconia and dilithium cilicate look like natural teeth and are able to support the regular pressures of the bite. These restorations can even be matched to the shade and appearance of the neighboring teeth, allowing them to complete a seamless smile.
Bridges: For patients missing more than one tooth, bridges can be supported by two or more dental implants, providing balance to the bite. As with single-tooth restorations, bridges match the shade of neighboring teeth and can withstand the pressures of chewing.
Full and Partial Dentures: When missing most or all of an arch, two or more dental implants can be used to support full or partial dentures. These restorations replicate the natural appearance of the soft tissues and the teeth, and are less prone to slipping than traditional dentures. Implant supported dentures also allow patients to maintain their regular diet, which can be difficult when relying on dental adhesives.
