Do you have missing teeth? Maybe you want a more permanent dental restoration to improve the look and function of your teeth. Dental implants are a versatile option that can secure multiple restorative treatments for a stable and aesthetically pleasing result. Learn more about the different implant options that Coastal Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry offers patients below:
Single or Multiple Dental Implants
Dental implants consist of titanium posts that are inserted into the jaw bone. After a healing period of 3 to 6 months, during which the posts fuse to tissue, the posts are capped off with permanent dental crowns. Dental crowns are made of a highly durable ceramic material that is color-matched and shaped to blend in with other teeth.
Multiple consecutive lost teeth can be replaced with a dental bridge, which is most effective when held in place by dental implants. Unlike removable bridges, secured bridges do not require the removal of healthy tooth structure. After the implants are placed, patients are typically fit with a temporary bridge depending on where the missing teeth are located.
Whole arches of teeth can be replaced with dentures. Dentures that are secured using dental implants improve the comfort, function, and appearance of teeth. Implant-secured dentures improve speech and chewing ability, support bone retention, and help prevent gum recession. Dental implants provide a more stable and secure denture to patients.
Some patients can benefit from teeth-in-a-day, a treatment plan that offers teeth replacement in just one office visit. Through pre-treatment planning that utilizes advanced 3-D digital dental technology, our dentists are able to optimize healthy bone structure for a long-lasting restoration. Our staff can coordinate the removal of damaged teeth, place implants, and secure a dental restoration all in one day.
