Implant dentistry restores incomplete smiles while providing valuable bite support and protection for your jaw. We have experience working with patients who have suffered different degrees of tooth loss. With advanced planning and treatment, we can offer a better experience with care and exciting overall improvements!
Our Technology Makes Implant Placement Easier
With our imaging and 3D printing technology, we can keep every step of your implant placement and restoration in-house. Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) captures a 3D “roadmap” of your mouth we use to plan your dental implant placement. From that information, we can 3D print a surgical guide for the procedure. With it, we make placing the implant a more conservative process, as the guide allows us to make a “hole punch” in the gum tissues that is smaller than the opening that other practitioners have to create during the procedure. Our treatment is less invasive than a traditional approach, which makes your recovery a shorter and easier process!
A dental implant is a small titanium appliance directly set in the jawbone. The placement procedure is preceded by a close evaluation to determine just the right angle and location for your implant. To secure the implant, a small incision is made in the gum tissue for implant placement within the jawbone.
A single tooth implant will be placed, and a period of healing will follow. After you have sufficiently recovered, you will return to have a custom prosthesis set in place. You can enjoy remarkable stability from the restoration, which effectively returns your normal bite function and helps neighboring teeth remain stable. Implant dentistry can help in the long term by stimulating your jawbone tissues to prevent deterioration.
Dental Implants And Full Arch Restoration
With a few selectively placed dental implants, we can provide a more conservative permanent tooth loss solution. After analyzing your jaw structure and density, a series of implants are placed along the upper or lower jaw to offer support. They provide the kind of stability that lets your denture remain secure and comfortable even as you apply biting and chewing forces.
As an alternative to traditional removable dentures, this kind of restorative solution can offer more comfort throughout the day as well as long-term restorative benefits. This also helps prevent jawbone deterioration, a problem that worsens when tooth loss is not addressed with dental implant support.
Through implant dentistry, we are able to assist with your smile restoration for patients impacted by different degrees of tooth loss. If you would like to find out how we can help you—whether you need to replace one tooth, many, or an entire row—contact Farmington Smiles at 248-474-8060.
