Completely Replace Missing Teeth in North Fresno
Dental implants completely replace missing teeth, from root to crown. These restorations comprise implant posts, abutments, and the prosthetics. Titanium posts replace teeth roots and act as the natural supporting structure for both the prosthetic replacement and surrounding anatomy. Our dentists attach restorations to these posts to renew the patient's bite.
Implants are versatile in their application and able to support the following restorations:
- Single-unit crowns replace a missing tooth at any place in the smile. This option is an alternative to a fixed bridge that preserves neighboring dental structures.
- Multi-unit bridges use two to three implants to stabilize a prosthetic that replaces a short row of missing teeth. Implants are placed in a position for optimal strength and support.
- Implant-supported dentures utilize four to eight implants to stabilize a denture in place and renew a patient’s bite. Completely edentulous patients using implant-supported dentures benefit from restored function and appeal.
Patients may require a preliminary procedure to bolster the jawbone and improve oral health to ensure a successful procedure.
Why Replace Missing Teeth?
Teeth roots more than just stabilize teeth; they provide support for surrounding dental structures. When a tooth is missing, the bone fills the gap but at the expense of jaw health. Bone atrophies while the jaw visibly shrinks, causing a sunken facial appearance.
Implants directly resolve these problems by addressing the issue at its root. Implant posts fuse with natural bone and generate a unified support system. Patients that use dental implants benefit from an improved oral function, increased bite strength, and revitalized jaw health.
