Implant Prosthodontics

Your One Stop Dental Office
For All Your Dental Needs!

Implant prosthodontics involves the restoration of one or more missing teeth with permanent artificial tooth roots that are implanted into the jawbone. Also known as dental implants, the artificial root is made from medical grade titanium and fused to the bone then capped with a dental crown to give patients the look, feel, and function of a healthy natural tooth.

If you have one or more teeth that are damaged beyond repair or missing, or if you are not fully satisfied with your current removable or fixed prosthodontics, contact us today to see if you may be a candidate for implant prosthodontics!

Many patients are under the impression that a single missing tooth is not a big deal and choose to live with it, especially if it isn’t overtly visible. What many people don’t realize, however, is that even one missing tooth can have some serious adverse effects on your overall dental health. These may include the shifting of surrounding teeth that can result in misalignment of your bite, uneven wear on remaining teeth, difficulty chewing, and even deterioration of the jawbone.

For patients with a single missing tooth, we highly recommend the single tooth implant procedure. For patients with severe damage to a single tooth, we prioritize saving the tooth through other dental procedures such as root canal procedure with a dental crown. However, if the tooth is damaged beyond repair, the single tooth implant is the best prosthodontic treatment for complete restoration of appearance and function.

When there are two or more adjacent teeth that are missing or have suffered from irreparable damage, the ensuing impact on the surrounding teeth and jawbone are multiplied. It is imperative that restoration of these teeth take place without delay in order to avoid further damage to the remaining healthy teeth and prevent deterioration of bone that is often caused by the loss of teeth.

When two adjacent teeth are missing, both teeth will receive an implant capped with a dental crown. When three or more are missing, you may receive a dental implant for every missing tooth each capped with dental crowns, or an implant may be placed at each end of the gap to support a dental bridge. The latter type of multiple teeth implants may be performed if an implant for each missing tooth is too overwhelming or unfeasible for a variety of reasons.   

For patients who have suffered tooth loss or irreparable damage for an entire set of upper and/or lower teeth, full mouth dental implants may be the perfect solution. This may especially be the case for patients who have found dentures to be cumbersome, painful, or otherwise unsatisfactory. As with all types of implant prosthodontics, your dental specialist will need to evaluate the condition of your jawbone to determine if you are a candidate for the procedure. In some cases, a bone graft may be required in preparation for the implant.

Full mouth dental implants typically involve the placement of four titanium tooth root implants for each set of upper and/or lower teeth. A series of dental crowns and bridges are then attached to the implants to provide you with an entirely new set of natural-looking teeth that provide full function.

Who Needs Implant Prosthodontics?

Anyone who has lost or has suffered irreparable damage to one or more teeth should receive prosthodontic treatment. Implant prosthodontics are the most permanent and sustainable type of prosthodontic treatment and is highly recommended as the top choice for patients who still have enough bone structure for the procedure. Bone grafts may be possible for many patients who have already suffered some bone deterioration, however some patients with severe bone deterioration may not be able to receive the surgery.

Advantages of Implant Prosthodontics

For tooth loss patients with sufficient jawbone to support implant prosthodontics, there are many advantages to this option over other fixed prosthodontics and removable prosthodontics treatments.

Firstly, dental implants are the only prosthodontic treatment that replaces the root and therefore prevents bone deterioration in the jaw that is caused by tooth loss. Bone loss in the jaw eventually leads to facial sagging and deformation, so this is a huge benefit!

Implants are also highly durable, often lasting a lifetime without need for continuous adjustments, maintenance, or replacements as with dentures. Although the upfront cost is undoubtedly much higher, the long-term sustainability ultimately can make them the more economical option.

They are also highly inconspicuous with not only the appearance of natural teeth but also the feel and function of natural teeth with high degree of comfort. Compared to cumbersome dentures or even dental bridges which require grinding down of healthy natural teeth to support the bridge, implant prosthodontics are a premium option for the restoration of missing teeth with long term economic sustainability as well!
