At Dublin Dental Care, we restore dental implants in the comfort and convenience of our own office.
Dental implants replace missing teeth with durable, natural looking prosthetic teeth. Different from dentures, implants utilize a titanium “root” to securely bond into a patient’s jawbone and provide a sturdy foundation for artificial teeth.
A missing tooth, or several missing teeth, can have multiple impacts on a patient’s dental and overall health, including:
Reduced ability to eat and swallow properly
Shifting, or sagging, facial structure
Embarrassment due to significant gaps while smiling
Poor quality of speech
Increased risk of periodontal disease
Dental Implants require two appointments in order to deliver a comprehensive solution to missing teeth. Our patients are referred to an oral surgeon for the proper placement of the titanium root. A patient is generally given three to six months to properly heal from this procedure and will be given an appropriate, esthetic temporary prosthesis (cap, crown, or denture) to cover over the titanium implant.
At the second appointment, our restorative team will start the process of making, delivering, and placing a finished dental solution. Made from a detailed impression of a patient’s existing teeth, the replacement appliance or prosthetic will deliver a natural looking smile. We specialize in the following implant supported restorations:
Implant Supported Crowns
Implant supported crowns allow a patient to achieve a natural looking smile through the use of porcelain crowns, or caps, that are closely matched to surrounding teeth colors.
Implant Supported Bridges
Implant supported bridges provide an extremely durable solution for patients who are missing a minimal amount of teeth. Implant supported bridges consist of dental implants and crowns joined together as one unit.
Implant Supported Removable Dentures
Implant supported removable dentures solve the most common inconveniences associated with traditional dentures. Designed to snap securely in place, this type of denture is usually superior to regular, non-implant supported dentures because it is not as dependent on the gums and jaw for stability and retention.
Implant Supported Fixed Dentures
Implant supported fixed dentures restore smiles with a prosthetic solution that requires less maintenance and material than traditional dentures. Fastened securely into place, implant supported fixed dentures can be conveniently removed and thoroughly cleaned by your dentist during your regular cleanings and exams.
At Dublin Dental Care, our team works hand in hand with oral surgeons to deliver the best possible treatment for our patients.
If you are missing teeth, dental implants provide a strong and natural-looking solution to restore your smile.
