Our Bradenton dental practice is focused on providing the latest in dental techniques and treatments for patients seeking to enhance the look and health of their smiles.
What are Dental Implants?
There are three intricate parts of a dental implant that replace the tooth root and the visible tooth as well. Made out of biocompatible titanium, the dental implant post replicates the tooth root, which is essential in providing support for jaw bone density, and preventing facial collapse. A dental implant restoration, whether that be a crown or bridge, is attached to the post via an abutment. Our dental practice is equipped to place and restore dental implants in office. Dr. Ashley works with you to clearly understand your needs and goals to formulate the best treatment plan for your smile.
Types of Dental Implants
At Smile Smart Dental Center, we provide an array of dental implant options for patients who have a number of missing teeth. The types of dental implant services offered at our Bradenton dental practice include those for:
Single Missing Tooth
Recommended for patients with one lost tooth or sporadic tooth loss, implant crowns are utilized to replace the missing tooth entirely. We offer all-porcelain crowns for an aesthetic restoration that matches the sheen and shape of your natural tooth.
Multiple Missing Teeth
Traditionally, dental bridges are recommended for patients missing one or more teeth. This treatment option requires the alteration of neighboring healthy teeth to be used as anchors. However,implant-supported bridges replace do not require the placement of crowns on healthy teeth. The implant bridge relies on the support of implant posts for stability.
If you are missing a full arch of teeth, and are using a removable denture, implant-supported dentures are great at stabilizing an uncomfortable prosthesis. Eliminating the need for adhesives, implant-supported dentures are anchored in bone, restoring the shape and integrity of your jaw, which traditional dentures cannot do.
