Missing teeth can lead to several dental issues, such as difficulty eating and speaking comfortably to name a few. Dental implants combat these issues and provide a comprehensive replacement for missing teeth, from roots to crowns. Dr. Gina Biedermann offers dental implants in Keller, TX. Call our practice and schedule an evaluation to determine how dental implants can benefit your smile.
Replacing Missing Teeth in Keller
Dental implants replace entire teeth, restoring dental function and improving an individual’s appearance. These dental prosthetics comprises three main parts: implant posts, abutments, and restorations. The biocompatible titanium post is placed directly into the jaw where it fuses to the bone and generates unified support for both the new teeth and existing dental structure. Restorative options we offer with dental implants include:
Single-unit crowns replace a missing tooth at any point in the smile. An implant is placed directly into the open space left by the tooth’s root. This procedure works exceptionally well following extractions.
Multi-unit bridges are supported by two or three dental implants, filling in the gaps left by two or more teeth. Whereas traditional bridges require the alteration of adjacent healthy teeth, implant-supported bridges gather support from the jaw bone.
Implant-supported dentures are the best way to rebuild dental function for an entire row of teeth. These require four to eight strategically-placed dental implants for maximum support and stability.
Once your posts have been placed by a trusted specialist, Dr. Biedermann provides you with your prosthetic to complete your restoration.
Advanced Dental Care
While traditional restorations, such as dentures and bridges, work as adequate replacements for the tops of teeth, they fail to replace the roots. This causes the jaw bone to experience accelerated resorption, which causes atrophy and the jaw to shrink. Replacing the roots of teeth with dental implants prevents this accelerated deterioration.
Additional benefits of dental implants include:
- Improved Function
- Enhanced Stability
- Jaw Bone Support
Patients require adequate bone density to successfully receive dental implants. Our practice coordinates any necessary preliminary procedures, such as bone grafts, sinus lifts, and ridge augmentations. These procedures allow those who would be otherwise ineligible to receive dental implants.
