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 our dentist inserts into the jaw bone. The posts will fuse to tissue after a healing period of 3 to 6 months. Then the dentist caps-off the posts with permanent artificial teeth or dental crowns. Dental crowns are either metal or a durable ceramic that the dentist color-matches and shapes to blend in with other teeth.
A dentist can replace multiple consecutive lost teeth with a dental bridge. A bridge 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 dentist places the implants, patients are typically fit with a temporary bridge. The location of the bridge will depend on where the missing teeth were in your mouth.
A dentist can replace whole arches of teeth with dentures. Dental implant-secured dentures 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.
An implant-secured denture fits much more comfortably than a removable denture. This dental implant procedure is the best long-term solution for total tooth loss.
Some patients can benefit from teeth-in-a-day, a treatment plan that offers teeth replacement in just one office visit. Our through pre-treatment planning utilizes advanced 3D digital technology. The dentists are able to optimize healthy bone structure for a long-lasting restoration. Our staff can remove damaged teeth, place implant posts, and secure the dental restoration all in one day.
