In short, dental implants are the next best thing to nature when it comes to replacing missing teeth. They simply cannot be matched by any other treatment when it comes to how natural they look and how strong they are. Whether you are missing a single tooth or all of them, Dr. Osseiran can use dental implants to rebuild your smile to last a lifetime. To learn more about this state-of-the-art treatment and what it can do for you, contact us today for a consultation.
A dental implant is actually a small titanium post that is placed into the jaw in order to mimic the root structure of a lost tooth, and this can then be used to support a number of prosthetics that can replace the teeth. A minor oral surgery is needed to place the implants, which Dr. Osseiran can perform right in our office. After it is completed, you’ll be given 3-6 months to heal before returning to Just For Your Smile to receive your final replacement teeth.
If you have a single missing tooth, it can be restored using what is called an implant-retained crown. It will consist of a custom-made all-porcelain crown that is directly attached to an implant post, and it will blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile.
Or, if you are missing a few teeth in a row, two of these implant crowns can be placed on either side of the gap in your smile and bonded to prosthetic teeth to form an implant-retained bridge.
This is a procedure that allows Dr. Osseiran to place four strategically located dental implants and an implant-retained denture with just a single procedure. A patient could literally wake up that morning with an entire row of missing teeth and go to bed with a complete smile. This treatment can even help those patients who have been told they are ineligible for dental implants in the past due to the strength and thickness of their jawbone. With All-On-4, now even more people can get their complete smile back.
