If you are missing teeth, dental implants are the most natural tooth replacement option. The number and location of your missing teeth will determine which kind of dental implant you will need. Dr. Carter Perkins will first begin with a thorough dental exam and then will create a personalized treatment plan for each patient.
Types of Dental Implants
Dental Implant Secured Crown – In the past, if you had lost a front tooth, your dentist would have recommended a dental bridge. This involves grinding down the two adjacent teeth then using them to anchor the dental bridge. With advances in technology, dentists can now offer a single dental implant that will secure a new dental crown when a single tooth is missing. Dr. Perkins will surgically place the implant post in the root canal. Once healed, the abutment will be attached, and a dental crown will be used to complete the restoration. Our Dunnellon, FL dentist office has an in-house dental lab tech that uses 3-D printing and state of the art dental technology to create your dental crown that will fit securely and comfortably. The crown will look and feel like a natural tooth and will be secure. Dental crowns are made from the highest quality dental ceramic and are durable and highly functional.
Dental Implant Secured Bridge – A dental implant secured dental bridge is often used to replace several consecutively missing teeth. Traditionally secured using prepared adjacent teeth; Dr. Perkins will recommend securing a dental bridge with dental implants whenever possible. Dental implant secured bridges do not compromise the structure of remaining healthy teeth. Dental implants fuse naturally with jaw bone creating a stable and lasting bite. Dental implants help to prevent bone recession and create a more stable oral foundation, promoting long term oral health. Our in house dental lab technician will fabricate your custom designed dental bridge. Our in house lab technician allows for final touch ups and helps to ensure better accuracy and improves customer satisfaction.
Dental Implant Secured Denture – Dental implant secured dentures are used for patients missing an entire row or arch of teeth. Many patients struggle with ill fitted dentures. Dentures are prone to slipping or falling out, causing embarrassing situations for patients. Dentures can be secured using strategically placed dental implants. Dental implant secured dentures provide patients with added oral health benefits. Dental implants help to support long term facial integrity and bone health. Implants are designed to fuse with the jaw bone and promote natural regeneration of bone tissue. Dental implant secured dentures allow patients to enjoy a diet without restriction and can help patients feel more confident in their smile.
