See What We Can Do for You With Dental Implants
Dental implants is a new technology in dentistry that’s really coming of age. There are certain situations that the only way you can fix it, the only way you can put a permanent solution in, is to use implants. The idea of it replacing the bridge, I think is a little bit premature. Because we’ve had a number of situation where that didn’t turn out as well as just a regular bridge would have. In some instances I think it may be overplayed, but in others, it’s shortcoming not to use the implant. Anytime you don’t have any back teeth all the way to the rear that can support the bridge, an implant becomes the undeniable option.
If you have no other way of putting molders in the persons mouth permanently, because you don’t have any to brace off of or hook onto, the implant becomes the perfect solution to that. Here, at cosmetic dental associates, we do all of the restorative things that you need to do to build that upper half of the implant case. There are a number of that work with us, placing the implants, a too. We get them placed, once they’re sound and healthy, we come in after that and place the aesthetic restoration. Again, here comes the cosmetic challenge of this, is when you put that in there, does it look like a bolt with marble on the end of it, or does it look like a tooth that just grew out of the gum? That’s the difference between cosmetic dentistry and regular dentistry. Regular dentistry, we just stick a tooth on there and we go, “Okay, it’s a tooth, you can eat on it.” Or cosmetic dentistry is like, “Wow, which one is the implant? They all look like teeth.” If we can do that then I think we’ve done what you need to do on top of implants.
