Implant Placement and Restoration in One Convenient Location
Clark Family Dentistry offers complete one-stop service for a variety of implant-supported prosthetics as our dentist performs all implant-related procedures. Replacing teeth with dental implants provides the most stable, functional, and natural restoration available today. Not only do these prosthetics look great and feel comfortable, the implant post, which is surgically inserted into your jaw bone, acts as a tooth root.
Traditional tooth replacement options, like fixed bridges, provide functional and aesthetic benefits but do nothing to stimulate the underlying bone, resulting in accelerated resorption and atrophy. For patients who are missing several teeth, this process results in premature facial aging.
Dr. Clark conducts a thorough assessment of your needs and listens carefully to your concerns and goals. He clearly explains the condition of your gums and jaw bone, and If you have already lost bone mass, grafting can be completed before or during the implant process, depending on your case.
Implant-Supported Tooth Replacement Options
The following prosthetics can replace one or more teeth with the stable foundation dental implants provide.
- Crowns – uses one implant post to replace a single missing tooth or any number of individual teeth.
- Bridges – uses two implant posts to replace up to three missing teeth in a row.
- Hybrid Dentures – uses at least four implant posts to permanently replace a full arch of missing teeth – removable only by the dentist.
- Overdentures – uses two implant posts to add security to traditional dentures that are prone to slip out of place - removable by the patient.
Dr. Clark can also extract unhealthy teeth at the time of your implant procedure if necessary. The recommendations he makes for you will be personalized to meet your specific oral health needs.
Compassion and Attentiveness
Receiving dental implants to restore your smile is the most comprehensive and healthy approach to replacing teeth.
