What are Dental Implants?
5 Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants have numerous benefits that make them an enticing option for patients looking for a natural-feeling and durable tooth replacement. During your initial visit, our dentist and her team will outline the benefits so that you can decide if dental implants are an ideal option for your smile. Some of the benefits of dental implants include:
- Preventing further tooth loss
- Protecting your smile from cavities
- Improving the functionality of your smile, including biting and chewing
- Reversing jawbone deterioration
- Restoring your ability to speak properly
Our High-Quality Restorative Options
During your initial visit, we’ll perform a comprehensive oral exam to determine the condition of your teeth, gums, and jawbones. Afterward, we’ll use technology like x-rays to look for signs of dental complications, including weak jawbones. If your smile is healthy enough to undergo dental implant placement successfully, we’ll sit down with you to determine which restoration is suitable for you. Our Norco dental implant restorations include:
Crowns: An implant-supported crown replaces a single tooth. Not only is your crown designed to blend in with your natural teeth, but it provides a natural feel in your mouth that makes it easy to get used to your new implant. Depending on your needs, we can place multiple crowns throughout your upper and lower jaws.
Bridges: Bridges are a way to replace multiple missing teeth in a row. A bridge is anchored to your smile using a single crown on each end. You can care for your implant-supported bridge as you would your natural teeth, including regular brushing and flossing.
Dentures: If you enjoy the feel and appearance of traditional dentures but want a more permanent restorative option, implant-supported dentures may be perfect for you. Implant-supported dentures are composed of artificial teeth placed on a pink acrylic base anchored by multiple dental implant posts. You don’t have to remove your implant-supported dentures and can enjoy a beautiful smile for a lifetime.
Teeth in a Day: Teeth in a Day is like traditional implant-supported dentures but places a fixed prosthesis. After your implants have been placed, the primary difference is that we’ll immediately give you removable dentures that allow you to bite, chew, and speak while you wait for your permanent dentures.
All-on-4: All-on-4 is like implant-supported dentures. However, they use state-of-the-art technology that only requires four implant posts to anchor an entire arch of teeth. This helps reduce your time in the exam chair and speed up recovery time as you require few implant posts.
Your Place for Skilled Pretreatment
If our dentist determines that your smile needs additional preparation before you can receive your dental implants, we offer various pretreatment options. Depending on your smile’s unique needs, we offer:
Extractions: At Absolute Dental of Norco, one of our primary goals is to preserve as many of your natural teeth as possible. However, if a tooth is severely decayed or damaged, we provide gentle extractions. Once your extraction is complete, we’ll work to place your implant while ensuring it heals correctly.
Bone Grafts: Although your jawbone is strong and meant to last a lifetime of repeated use, it’s susceptible to becoming brittle and weak when you are missing teeth for a prolonged amount of time. Dental implants require a solid jawbone to prevent movement after placement. Our practice offers bone grafts that take pieces of bone and reinforce brittle areas.
Sinus Lifts: Like a bone graft, a sinus lift is a procedure that reinforces the bone in your upper jaw. A sinus lift is necessary if you’re receiving dental implants in your upper jaws and don’t have firm enough material to hold dental implants in place.
