Dental Implants for Green Hills Residents

Man in plaid blue shirtReplacing missing teeth is essential in order to maintain oral health, but the majority of tooth replacement options only restore half the dental structure. Dental implants are the only option that replace the entire tooth roots and crown. Schedule a dental implant consultation or keep reading to find out more about this restorative treatment option.

Dental Implant Restoration

Once the implant has fused with the jaw, patients return to our practice for implant restoration. Using high quality, custom dental prosthetics, our team connects replacement teeth with implant posts restoring smiles stably and effectively. Restorations may require the placement of abutments to attach the prosthetic to one or more implant posts, and for partial and full dentures, we provide both removable and permanent attachment options based on patient preference. Any tooth replacement solution can be anchored to a dental implant for increased stability, and to preserve jawbone density and gum tissue volume. We offer single tooth replacement with implant supported dental crowns and multiple consecutive and nonconsecutive tooth replacements with implant supported dental prosthetics.

Implant Supported Dental Dentures & Bridges

Implant dentures

We offer implant supported dental prosthetics for those patients missing several consecutive or nonconsecutive teeth. Our implant retained tooth replacement options include:

  • Implant supported dental bridges – like traditional fixed bridge, the implant supported option is a prosthetic composed of one or more replacement teeth fused together, but instead of attaching to surrounding teeth, the prosthetic is supported by implants. Some patients choose to replace a full arch of teeth with several implant supported fixed bridges for the most natural looking and feeling restoration.
  • Implant supported partial dentures – a partial denture is a number of replacement teeth attached to a gum colored base used to fill in gaps left by missing teeth and is attached to patients’ smiles with clasps. The implant supported version can either be removable or permanently attached to implants.
  • Implant supported full dentures – full dentures are a row of replacement teeth set into a gum colored base shaped to connect with patients’ gum tissue through natural suction. The implant supported option requires a smaller, lighter base and can be removable or permanently attached to implants based on patient preference.
