Eagle Dental Provides High-Quality Dental Implant Restorations
If you are missing one or more teeth, the best thing you can do is replace them with dental implants. This comprehensive tooth replacement solution does more than just provide a stable and natural-looking smile; it protects your jaw from suffering dental issues related to missing teeth, like jaw shrinkage.
How Missing Teeth Affect Your Jaw
A lack of stimulation causes resorption in the jaw bone and can cause you to look older than you are. The process begins when teeth are lost, and there are fewer tooth roots to stimulate the jaw bone and trigger new bone growth.
The more teeth that are missing, the more likely your lower facial contours are subject to change.
Dental Implants to the Rescue
Depending on your needs, there are several options to replace teeth and stabilize dentures. Since the implant posts are inserted into your jaw, they act as replacement tooth roots that anchor the appropriate restoration.
These fixtures fuse with the bone to create a symbiotic relationship that provides stimulation for the jaw bone and far superior stability when compared to traditional replacement options.
Our dental implant-supported restorations include the following:
- Implant-Supported Crowns – To permanently replace individual teeth, a crown is used with a single implant.
- Implant-Supported Bridges – To permanently replace a row of missing teeth, a bridge is used with a minimum of two implants.
- Implant-Supported Dentures – To permanently replace full arches of teeth, a modified denture is used with at least four implants.
- Implant-Retained Overdentures – To stabilize traditional (removable) dentures with two or more implants
Except for implant-retained overdentures, implant-supported restorations are not removable. They feel like your natural teeth and can last a lifetime with proper care. Our dentists take great pride in their restorative work and are each committed to helping you regain a beautiful smile and total function of your teeth.
