Permanent Tooth Replacements with Dental Implants

Senior woman with gorgeous smile If we had to choose one dental treatment that has most profoundly impacted the way we provide care for patients in the last decade, dental implant supported tooth replacement would win hands down. Unlike other tooth replacement options, dental implant restorations replace both the root and crown of the tooth creating the most natural looking and feeling smile repair possible. Implant posts are inserted into the gums where they mimic the function of natural tooth roots providing support for one or more replacement teeth. Dr. David Nguyen has advanced training that allows him to safely, effectively offer the entire dental implant placement and restoration process at Dental Care Today of Richardson.

Single Tooth Replacement

We can use a single dental implant post to replace one missing tooth by attaching a custom crafted, porcelain dental crown. Like a traditional crown that is fused to natural tooth structure to preserve it, dental crowns can be attached to implant posts to recreate lost tooth structure to natural look, feel, and function.

Multiple Tooth Replacement

Dental implants can also be used to replace several consecutive or nonconsecutive teeth and even a full row of replacement teeth. The number and location of missing teeth will determine what type of multiple tooth replacement prosthetic is used and how many dental implant posts are necessary to support the replacement teeth.

All-on-4® & All-on-6®

Model of All-on-4 impalnts

As their names suggest, these innovative procedures make it possible for us to support entire dentures on just four or six dental implant posts. The number depends largely on the natural size and shape of the jawline, but both procedures utilize naturally denser portions of the jawbone to support the entire arch of missing teeth.

Mini Dental Implants

Mini dental implants are smaller versions of implant posts. Great for the front teeth and for patients who have diminished jawbone density or gum tissue volume, mini dental implants allow us to successfully provide implant supported tooth replacement for many patients who have previously been less-than-ideal candidates for the procedure.

Bone Grafting

We may need to perform bone grafting for patients who have experienced significant tooth loss which has led to diminished jawbone density. There are a variety of bone grafting procedures, including treatments to broaden the width of the bone and increase the height of the jawbone. We’ll examine your smile carefully, and provide recommendations as necessary to ensure your highest chances for successful implant placement.

Sinus Lift

The most often recommended form of bone grafting is a sinus lift. Above the upper jaw, there is a large hollow sinus cavity. In order to ensure there is adequate bone tissue for implants in the upper jaw, bone grafting to increase the amount of jawbone and lift the sinus cavity is often necessary.
