Cosmetic Dental Implants
When you’re missing a tooth from the front of your smile, it can be especially embarrassing. We don’t want you to have to go without a tooth in your cosmetic zone. It can negatively impact your self-esteem and quality of life. With cosmetic dental implants, we can quickly replace the missing tooth or teeth to make sure you don’t have to live with a missing tooth for long!
The first thing Dr. Dean will need to do is make sure there is enough jawbone to support the dental implant. If you lack sufficient bone tissue, you may need to undergo a bone graft. Next, he will surgically place the implant into your jawbone.
Dental implants need time to heal, about three to six months. A temporary restoration can be placed during this time period for cosmetic reasons. This temporary makes your smile appear whole and complete while you wait for your implant to heal, at which point the actual crown will be placed.
Fixed Crown & Dental Bridge Solutions
If you’re missing teeth, you may be considering crown and bridge as a replacement option.
Did you know that a traditional crown or bridge requires that your remaining healthy teeth be modified, filed down to allow room for the crowns that will anchor the bridge in place? We offer an alternative: implant-anchored fixed bridges. Implant-supported bridges do not depend on your natural teeth for support but instead are connected to dental implants.
After Dr. Dean surgically places the implants, he may be able to place a temporary dental bridge while your permanent bridge is being fabricated. Dental implants promote continued bone growth, preventing both bone shrinkage and gum recession associated with traditional bridges.
The benefits of implant-supported bridges include:
- Preservation of surrounding teeth.
- Restoration of smile and oral functions.
- Easy to care for.
Implant Dentures & All on Four Solutions
Implant dentures are an effective treatment solution for patients who are missing all of their teeth. Implant retained dentures can either be removable or fixed. All-on-Four dental implants provide edentulous patients with an efficient and effective restoration using only four implants to support immediately loaded full-arch prosthesis. This innovative procedure works through strategic planning.
Dr. Dean will work with patients on an individual basis to build a personalized treatment plan that maximizes the use of any healthy bone structure for optimal results. With fewer implants needed, cost and time are reduced. The special implants used are anchored at an angle that offers improved support and stability.
This type of dental implant will enable you to enjoy the best possible quality of life and confidence in your smile. No slipping and no discomfort!
Dr. Dean will always recommend dental implants over removable appliances because they last longer and have a more natural-looking result. Dental implants also offer long-term benefits for dental health when compared to removable dentures.
