What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implant posts are stable, reliable, and long-lasting tooth replacement options. A dental implant consists of a titanium post that acts as a root, an abutment, and a restoration to fill the gap and replace your missing tooth.
The implant process is the only way to restore a missing tooth from the crown to the root, making them the closest replacements to your natural teeth. They are highly convenient as they are permanent and can take the force of chewing just like natural teeth.
Dental implants promote bone health by stimulating the jawbone. It also allows you to maintain a youthful appearance and prevents your teeth from shifting. When you come to our practice for implants, Dr. Doyle will first evaluate your oral health to determine your eligibility.
Implant posts are only ideal for you if you have healthy gums and adequate jawbone to support the posts. If you don’t yet qualify for the implants, we can refer you to an oral surgeon for pretreatments such as bone grafts and sinus lifts.
High-Quality Implant-Supported Restorations
At our practice, we understand that you have unique needs depending on your oral health situation. We offer various implant-supported restorations to suit your smile needs, whether you have lost one tooth or all. Our implant-supported restorations can help you restore function and improve your smile.
Crowns: Implant-supported crowns are ideal if you have only one missing tooth. The crown attaches to your implant with the help of an abutment to give you a stable replacement. We match the crowns to your natural teeth, and with proper care, it can last you for decades.
Bridges: We use bridges to replace up to three consecutive missing teeth. Although they are similar to traditional bridges, they are supported by implants instead of adjacent healthy teeth. The bridge fills the gap while the implants provide support and stability. Implant-supported bridges not only improve your smile but also prevent your teeth from shifting.
Fixed Dentures: Fixed dentures are dentures supported by implants. You can only remove them with the help of a dentist for maintenance purposes. A complete denture usually requires 6-8 implants for support. These dentures feel and function just like real teeth, and you don’t suffer the discomfort that comes with them slipping. You also don’t have to remove them for cleaning as you would traditional dentures.
All-On-4®: All-on-4 is a procedure that uses only four dental implants to replace an entire set of upper or lower teeth. We offer All-on-4 implant restorations if you are missing a full set of teeth on one or both jaws. The treatment is an alternative to dentures and more permanent and appealing.
When you visit our practice, our team will take you through the available options and recommend the optimal implant-supported restoration, depending on your needs.
Does an Implant Need Special Care?
Since dental implants are fixed in place, they do not require any special attention. You only need to take care of your dental implants like you would your natural teeth. The best way to take care of your implants is by going for professional cleaning at least twice a year. You should also stick to a dental hygiene routine that involves brushing your teeth and flossing daily.
When cleaning your teeth, ensure you use a non-abrasive toothpaste and a brush with soft bristles, so that you don’t damage your implants when brushing. Also, consider an unwaxed or implant-specific floss, as it allows you to get rid of debris between your implants without hurting the tissues around them.
