When you’re considering tooth replacement options, there are several things you’ll take into account. You’ll consider cost, time, and success rates. You’ll consider your own level of oral health. You’ll also consider the impact these tooth replacement options will have on your life. Dental implants offer great value when you consider everything you receive for the cost. We can provide you with dental implant restorations at the Topton dental office of Dr. Carter.
We will work as part of a team to complete your dental implants procedure. Dr. Carter provides dental implant restorations, which is the crown that actually replaces a missing tooth once the dental implants have been placed. You can contact our Topton dental office to get the process started. Dr. Carter will make a number of resources available to you to make sure that you receive high quality dental implant care.
There are several options for dental implant restorations available here in Topton, and Dr. Carter will be happy to help you determine which one suits your smile needs and preferences best. For instance, implant-retained crowns are ideal for restoring singular implants. The new crown will be crafted from tooth-colored dental ceramic so that it will blend in seamlessly with the surrounding natural teeth, and its small structure won’t threaten your oral health.
Alternatively, if you need to replace multiple missing teeth in a row, an implant-retained bridge is a good solution. Unlike a traditional bridge, which requires dental crowns to be attached over natural teeth on either side of the gap, implants are used instead to anchor a lifelike and durable prosthetic in place. This is better for both the patient’s appearance and their ongoing oral health.
Maybe you’ve lost a significant amount of natural teeth, or maybe you’ve been wearing a removable denture for some time now but are sick of it feeling loose and awkward. An implant-retained denture can provide sturdy, reliable coverage in both of these cases. Implant-retained dentures are designed to attach to multiple implants at once, which makes them more cost-effective than rebuilding each tooth/implant with its own individual restoration.
Patients can choose between a fixed denture, which is permanently held in place, or an “overdenture,” which attaches to implants while still remaining removable in nature. Patients who are used to cleaning their denture separately and storing it while sleeping may prefer the latter option, and they’ll still be able to reap the valuable oral health benefits that implants provide.
When it comes to replacing natural teeth with implants, many patients worry about being without the complete, confident smile they need in their everyday life while they wait for their mouth to heal from the initial surgery. Thankfully, Dr. Carter offers teeth in a day solutions, including All-On-4, for patients who want fast, quality results. This means that our team can provide a customized denture to be worn directly after your implants have been placed in the jawbone so that you’re never without teeth.
