Getting Dental Implants From A Prosthodontist
If you have missing teeth, you have a few choices of prosthodontic treatment that will be helpful.
For suitable candidates, dental implants offer the best solution, providing you with a high-quality replacement tooth that matches the look and color of your teeth. Dental implants use a titanium screw to fix your replacement tooth to the jawbone. This sets your tooth a firm fitting.
The benefits of dental implants over a dental bridge are that there is no gap between the bottom of your teeth and the gums. This means that the risk of developing gum disease in this area will be greatly reduced.
Your dental implants will be specifically designed to fit your teeth. Digital impressions of your mouth will be made so that the perfect replacement tooth can be made. These will then be made in our laboratory, specifically for your mouth.
Before your dental implant treatment, you may need temporary implants. Your prosthodontist will be able will fit these if required when they prepare the area ahead of your treatment. If extractions are required ahead of your dental implants, your prosthodontist will also carry this out.
