A prosthetic tooth root involves the placement of a titanium post that gets inserted surgically into the jaw bone. A dental implant provides stable support for a false tooth. Once the post heals and fuses with the bone, the exposed part of the prosthetic can be fitted with a replacement tooth. Dental implant in Anchorage not only replaces missing teeth and restores mouth function, but also prevents jaw atrophy that results when a tooth has been absent for a long time.
In our office, dental restorations are used to replace one or more lost teeth or to support an impaired tooth. A porcelain crown can restore a single tooth. Traditional tooth crowns are custom-fitted prosthetics that cover an entire tooth that has been weakened by trauma or extensive decay. An implant-supported dental crown allows our patients to replace a missing tooth, injured, or a diseased tooth that needed to be removed.
A dental bridge in is more commonly known as a partial denture. This approach is used to replace more than one adjacent missing teeth. The traditional method is to prepare the teeth that are on either side of the space for placement of the crowns that anchor the partial. An implant-supported bridge provides stability to a weakened tooth and does not require removing part of the structure of surrounding healthy teeth.
Complete Dental Implants
Dr. Burke or Dr. Williams may recommend tooth replacement if you are missing an entire arch of teeth, are needing to replace all your top or bottom teeth, or an entire mouthful. In most cases, dentures are only held in place with dental adhesive and are well-known for slipping out of place. Our dental implant patients never have to worry about having their false teeth shift or fall out of place while talking, laughing or eating.
Dental implants are a permanent tooth replacement solution that is securely fixed in place. Give us a call today to learn more. If you’re ready to book a consultation now, please fill out our online form. We look forward to seeing you!
