Hello and welcome to another September edition of the Synergy Dental Center blog!
We are your trusted source for restorative dentistry solutions in the Gillette, Wyoming area. That’s because Dr. Porter has the advanced tools, training, and technology to get you smiling again if you are struggling with the aftermath of tooth loss as an adult (bad health, diminished looks, low self-esteem, etc.).
Over the years, we have found that a dental implant procedure can radically improve your dire situation. In fact, we think it is the best bet for folks who are missing teeth.
That’s why, today our plan is to discuss dental implants, how they work, and the ways in which they can replicate the look, feel, and function of your original teeth.
Read on, and when you are finished, be sure to get in touch with our team to schedule your consultation with our talented team.
Modern Dental Implants
To get you back on track, we will implant an artificial root made from titanium in your jawbone. Implants resemble a screw on account of the way they are threaded. This is what allows us to attach a wide array of caps, abutments, and oral appliances to them.Titanium is used because it bonds to your jawbone in a process called osseointegration.
It takes a while to heal, sometimes up to six months, but this also allows the root to completely fuse with the bone to give it the permanence and strength you need.
Once your implant is sufficiently healed, we will load your new crown or denture. All of our restorations are created to look and feel natural in your mouth. In fact, we can craft them to meet your size, color, and shape preferences.
Our dental implants are comfortable and functional because they distribute biting force just like natural teeth. After your two-stage procedure is complete, you’ll be able to enjoy the foods that make you happy and keep you healthy.
What’s more, you will get your normal facial structure and full smile back, making you look younger and more vibrant!
Good Options For Bad Situations
Depending on your needs, we can set you up with one of the following types of implant procedures:
Single Dental Implant
This is the option that you would choose if you needed just one tooth replaced. A single dental implant is topped with a single crown to replace a tooth that has been knocked out, has fallen out, or has been extracted.
If you are missing several teeth in a row, this might be for you. Our implant-supported bridge consists of three or more teeth set into a base of some sort and attached to your jaw using dental implants.
You can actually secure your dentures using dental implants. Our implant-supported dentures are more stable and reliable than removable dentures alone. No more slipping and sliding!
All-on-4 Dental Implants
If you need to have an entire arch replaced, this is the one for you. First, we will remove any teeth necessary, place the implants, and attach your new teeth. It all happens in one easy procedure! Don’t worry, we will use a local anesthetic to ensure that you don’t feel any pain or experience any discomfort.
