Missing teeth can make your smile less than you want it to be, which can make you weary of interacting in social situations. In addition missing teeth can hamper the way you eat and speak as well as change your facial structure as the adjacent teeth shift. Thanks to advances in tooth replacement techniques and technology it now easier than ever to get new teeth. Our doctor, Dr. Keith Hasday, DDS can use an 11570 implants to replace any missing teeth so you look and can function with a full mouth of teeth again.
Instead of using bridges and dentures to replace a tooth or even a whole jaw of teeth our doctor will use an 11570 implants, which is a technique that has revolutionized teeth replacement. First, our doctor will conduct a comprehensive examination of the patient’s mouth as well as utilizing digital radiographs to determine if the patient is a candidate for an implant and to help pinpoint the implant site. Some patients may not have a sufficient amount of bone material at the implant site to support the implant, so our doctor may use a bone graft to add extra material and stimulate bone growth. An implant is a titanium anchor that is surgically implanted under the gum directly into the jawbone. The gum is then closed and over the next six months or so the anchor will bond with the bone, essentially becoming a part of it. This provides an extremely strong and stable root for the new tooth.
Once the anchor has bonded our doctor will reopen the gum above the 11570 implants and attach a healing collar or post to it, which will be topped by a porcelain crown by the patient’s restorative dentist. The crown forms the chewing surface of the new tooth. The replacement tooth looks; feels and functions just like the patient’s original tooth. Implants can also be used to hold bridges and dentures more securely than attaching them to adjacent teeth or pasting them to the gums. A series of implanted anchors with special closures on the surface hold the dentures. If you have missing teeth please call our office.
