Benefits of Implant Restorations
Implants and their attached prosthetic restorations do not rely on the adjacent teeth for any support. Rather, they are supported by your own bone tissue -- just as natural teeth. Those who wear traditional dentures know that dentures sit on top of the gums and are held in place with metal retention clasps on remaining teeth. For a more-esthetic and stronger denture, dental implants can instead sit beneath a denture to invisibly and reliably support a properly-designed denture.
The placement procedure is nearly painless, requires only local anesthesia, and is completed by a trusted oral surgeon. Afterwards, patients are given a few months of healing time so the bone can fuse with the implant to create a strong foundation. Implants are made of titanium, a material that is biocompatible with bone tissue and is well-tolerated by almost all patients. During this healing phase, patients wear a provisional prosthetic that maintains esthetics and ensures patients are never left without the full function of their smile.
Patients seeking a solution for their missing teeth or upcoming teeth extraction should consider the benefits of dental implants:
• Supports Jaw Health
• Restores Natural Bite
• Beautiful Restorations
• Treatment is Discreet
Rebuilding Dental Beauty and Oral health
Whether you are missing a single tooth or an entire row of teeth, Drs. Iverson and Buhler can help. Our restorations are crafted from high-quality materials by a trusted dental lab and perfected by our skilled hands. Single-tooth implants and implant bridges are made of ceramics including zirconia, e.max (lithium disilicate), and feldspathic porcelain. Dentures are fabricated from a range of materials, acrylic being the traditional choice. Implant restorations are designed according to the needs of your smile.
Single-Unit Crowns: They are used to restore an individual tooth, and are supported by a single implant. After tooth extraction, implants are placed directly into the socket, and a crown is affixed once healing is complete.
Bridges: When two or more teeth are missing in a line, bridges fill the gap. Utilizing two or more implants, multiple teeth can be replaced to restore esthetics and function.
Dentures: Full dentures are supported by four or more implants. At 202 Family Dentistry, we offer detachable dentures, so you receive the benefits of implants and the hygienic convenience of traditional prosthetics. Implant-supported dentures are a great option for anyone who wishes for greater strength, retention, and esthetics from dentures.
