Using Implant-Held Restorations To Replace Missing Teeth

Tooth loss is a frustrating problem to face, but it is not a problem you simply have to live with! Thanks to advancements in dental prosthetic treatment, it is possible to enjoy a secure, lifelike restoration that gives you back the confidence you had in your smile before losing teeth. At our Sheridan, WY dental office, we can discuss the placement of dental implants to hold a prosthetic in place. Implants effectively act like artificial roots for artificial teeth. They keep restorations stable by anchoring them to your jawbone, just as a tooth root keeps a natural tooth secured against the bone. They also provide added stability for neighboring roots, and help you preserve your jaw health over time!

Stop Trying To Ignore The Effects Of Tooth Loss!

It can be difficult to ignore the way tooth loss impacts your quality of life over time. This is especially true if you are missing a tooth that was a prominent part of your smile. You can find yourself feeling self-conscious about the way you look when you smile, speak, and laugh. Even if the gap in your smile is hard to see, you can quickly discover that biting and chewing can be negatively impacted when just one tooth is absent. If you try to simply work around this problem, you can increase your risk for experiencing TMJ dysfunction, and you may overwork remaining teeth. That excessive use can leave them vulnerable to dental problems that may require professional dental care.

Receiving Dental Implants

Dental implants are put in the space where your tooth root once resided. This involves minor oral surgery, as the post is inserted directly into your jawbone. As you heal from this placement, the bone will actually fuse with the implant, creating an incredibly strong bond. At the appropriate time, you can receive your custom dental crown or bridge. We can craft your restoration at our practice using CEREC technology, meaning your dentist can oversee the design, and ensure that it will be the right fit, and the right look.

We Can Work With You To Fully Restore Your smile

After you have your full smile restored, you can be eager to make other improvements that benefit your dental function, and your appearance. We can work with you to protect teeth that are in poor shape by supplying dental crowns, or dental fillings for teeth affected by cavities. We can also talk to you about cosmetic dental work if you want to make sure your remaining natural teeth look their best after having prosthetic work completed.
