Implants are used to permanently replace a missing tooth by the implantation of a titanium “root” and then restored with a crown on top to match the patient’s surrounding natural teeth. Implants may also be used to support either an upper or lower full denture. Dentures are usually less stable on the lower jaw, but become much more stable with the support of dental implants.
Paul Sioda Dental offers the following Implant Dentistry services:
If you are missing a single tooth, Paul Sioda Dental can use one implant and a crown can replace it. A dental implant replaces both the lost natural tooth and its root, creating an incredibly realistic facsimile of the missing tooth.
Implant Supported Bridges
If you are missing several teeth, implant-supported bridges might be your best bet! Dental implants use a strategic placement of roots, attached to a dental bridge, to cover missing gaps in your smile.
Implant-Support Full Dentures
Implant-supported dentures are the most effective route for patients without teeth in their jaw. You must have enough bone to support the addition of implants. The implant-support dentures will snap into place on top of them for a more secure bond than traditional dentures that just rest on the gums.
