Replacing missing teeth can improve your self-confidence, your oral health, and your overall well being. Periodontist Dr. Dean offers innovative, state of the art options for replacing missing teeth. Dental implants have helped to improve missing tooth replacement options giving patients a more natural, comfortable and longer lasting result.
Options for Replacing Missing Teeth
There are several options for replacing missing teeth. Dr. Dean provides comprehensive oral health exams and bite analysis to determine which treatment will best replace a patient’s missing teeth.
1. Dental Implants
Whether you are missing a single tooth or a full arch of teeth, dental implants are Dr. Bradley Dean’s go-to for successfully replacing missing teeth. Dental implants are ideal for replacing one missing tooth. The natural composition of the prosthetic tooth mimics the ingenuity of a real human tooth allowing for a natural looking, comfortable, and stable oral foundation.
While dental implants offer many patients a natural way to replace missing teeth, substantial healthy bone and gum tissue is required for the lasting success of traditional dental implants. Our Plano, TX periodontist office offers comprehensive evaluations and oral health exams to determine which implant procedure will yield optimal results based on a patients individual oral health and needs.
All-On-Four dental implants are commonly referred to as teeth in a day. Through precise pre-treatment planning and with the use of state of the art dental technology, Dr. Dean can coordinate tooth removal, implant placement and secure a restoration all in one visit to our dentist office. All-On-Four requires at least four dental implants that are used to secure a bottom denture. The implants are placed at an exact angle to maximize available healthy bone tissue without the need for bone grafting in patients with a compromised jaw bone.
3. Zygoma Implants
Zygoma implants use the cheekbone above the jaw or maxilla, bone to anchor and support a dental bridge or denture. Patients enjoy shorter healing times and can receive a dental restoration almost immediately. Dr. Dean will analyze the condition of your jaw and overall dental health before recommending a treatment plan using zygomatic implants.
Advances in the science of implant dentistry now make it possible for Dr. Dean to place dental implants in patients with a compromised jaw bone. Zygoma dental implants can support a dental bridge or denture with less recovery time than traditional implants, using zygomatic bone when the jaw bone structure is not sufficient.
