Why Replace Missing Teeth?
When teeth are lost, several dental issues can arise. Teeth can shift out of alignment, and the jawbones go through a process of resorption, which slowly leads to deterioration. Replacing the entire tooth, including the root, can prevent these issues. Implants with a customized crown, bridge, or denture, will deliver support and stimulation to the jawbone and improve the look of your smile.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
Dental implants can replace the entire tooth from root to crown. Other options rely on metal clasps, suction, or other teeth to hold them in place. Implant restorations use a titanium post surgically placed into the jaw for support.
Implants offer increased freedom and comfort. They do not require adhesives or nighttime soaking, and you won’t have to worry about painful rubbing or slipping. Dental implants are the only tooth-replacement option that becomes a part of your jaw, allowing for restored dental function, beauty, and improved quality of life.
Additional benefits of dental implants include:
- Better dental function
- No diet restrictions
- Prevent bone loss and preserve a youthful appearance
- Easy to brush and floss
- Enables natural speech
Qualifying for Dental Implants
Dr. Tuzman will conduct a thorough initial evaluation to ensure that you are an ideal candidate for teeth replacement with dental implants. We will use digital Panorex X-rays that allow us a full view of your upper and lower jaws, teeth, and sinuses. Generally, if you are not experiencing signs of periodontal disease and do not have diminished bone in your jaw from long-missing teeth, you could benefit from the dental implant procedure.
We work with a trusted local oral surgeon who can place your titanium posts with precision and skill. If your gum health and tooth replacement needs are more complex, the surgeon uses cone beam imaging technology to create impressions for accurate implant placement.
Dental Implant Phases
There are three main steps to implant treatment: placement, healing, and restoration. After a comprehensive evaluation and planning, you’ll be ready for the procedure. We work with a specialist for this crucial first step of surgically placing the titanium post into the jawbone.
Next, you will spend time healing and allow the bone and tissue to fuse with the post. During this time, we recommend a diet of soft foods, cold foods, and soup. After the healing period, we will place your custom restoration. We’ll make sure it fits comfortably and looks natural.
How We Replace Teeth with Implant-Supported Restorations
Implant posts are the foundation on which Dr. Tuzman can construct a wide array of restorations. The visible portion of the tooth on top of the post is called the restoration, or prosthetic. These are made of high-quality porcelain and acrylic materials that mimic natural enamel. With dental implants, you can enjoy long-lasting success with a variety of restorations, including:
All-On-4® Full Mouth Restorations
The All-on-4® method can provide you with a new smile, even if you have lost some jawbone density. The strategic placement angle of four dental implants can support a fixed prosthetic without bone grafting surgery. With fewer implants needed, we can complete the treatment in a single appointment. You will leave our office with a beautiful new set of fully functional temporary teeth to use until your custom restoration is ready.
This method of replacing teeth and stabilizing dentures offers an effective and economical way to repair missing teeth. With All-On-4, you can completely restore the function and appearance of your smile.
