Restoring Oral Health and Beauty
Implant-supported restorations provide a number of benefits for patients who are missing teeth. The implant post acts as an artificial root for the restoration it supports. These posts are made from titanium, allowing them to fuse with the jawbone. In addition to the added durability, implants prevent the bone from reabsorbing, and protects patients’ long-term jaw health and bite balance.
Restorations placed using implants also provide patients with a permanent and beautiful option for smile rehabilitation. Porcelain restorations are matched to the shade of each patient’s individual teeth and are durable enough to support the regular pressures of the jaw. While crowns and other restorations look just like natural teeth and are highly durable, they can be easily replaced if broken.
Candidates for Dental Implant Placement
Implants require good oral health and jawbone structure in order to fully fuse with the bone and properly support restorations. Poor gum health can affect the ability of the implants to heal and will lead to unstable restorations.
The team at Louden Dental Arts offers the procedures necessary to achieve optimal gum health prior to implant placement. Additionally, should patients require care following the resorption of bone caused by missing teeth, we are able to provide bone grafts.
Options for Implant-Supported Restorations
Implants can supply strength to a number of restorations depending on a patient’s individual needs. In addition to their permanence and the aesthetic appeal of implant-supported restorations, implants allow patients to achieve a comfortable bite without the use of adhesives or crown-supported prosthetics. Implant restorations available from our practice include:
