Ideal Candidates for Implant Placement and Restoration
Implants are a valuable solution for those who have recently lost teeth, whether due to physical trauma or disease. But for patients who have been without teeth for a significant amount of time, your candidacy for implant placement may be in question. The loss of even one tooth can have a profound impact on your dental bone and surrounding teeth. When left untreated, this usually results in a domino effect resulting compromised systemic health, dental function and appearance of your mouth and smile.
During the initial consultation, our dentists in San Antonio
will complete a comprehensive exam of your oral health. Patients who are free of gum disease and possess healthy bone are usually considered ready for placement, but those who have experienced resorption, or the shrinkage of bone volume, will need to receive preparatory procedures to rebuild the implant site. Procedures such as bone grafts, ridge augmentations, and sinus lifts will repair the damage left by missing teeth. Ask our specialists for more information on these helpful pre-treatments.
Treatment and Restoration at Leon Springs Family Dental
We utilize 3D surgical guides to ensure accurate placement of the titanium implant(s). This method offers increased precision and comfort for our patients. With guided implant placement many cases require minimal gum tissue modification to place the implant.
Once your implant(s) has properly integrated you will then be ready for the dental restoration. In many cases our restorations are crafted by CEREC. This is an innovative computer assisted design and milling device that quickly produces ceramic restorations here in our office. These esthetic ceramic restorations are designed to return full function to your bite and confidence in your smile. Our restorative options include:
Beyond preserving the structure of your smile by reinforcing the jaw with new roots, dental implants and their restorations feature other unique benefits that make them an ideal alternative to other measures. For example, implant-supported bridges, unlike their traditional counterparts, do not require the alteration of neighboring teeth to be held in place. With restorations retained by implants, you are able to prevent resorption of bone, preserve a balanced function and long-term oral health.
