Dental Implant Restoration Options
Dental implants are a very versatile solution, and can lay the foundation for many restoration plans:
- Single Tooth Replacement - We can replace a single missing tooth with one implant restored with a crown.
- Multiple Tooth Replacement – Patients missing two or more consecutive teeth can benefit from a bridge secured with one or more implants.
- Full Arch Replacement – Patients missing all teeth in the top, bottom, or both dental arches can benefit from implant-supported dentures. Patients can speak, smile, and chew knowing that their dentures will remain securely in place.
Determining Your Candidacy
Planning a dental implant procedure begins with a consultation with Dr. Bixby. At this time, he will review your medical history and determine your candidacy for implants. Most patients in good health with missing teeth and sufficient bone density are candidates. For patients with insufficient jawbone mass, a bone graft may be necessary.
The Dental Implant Procedure
On the day of the surgery, you will be given anesthesia to maintain your comfort. Your surgeon will make a small incision at your gum line. Next, he will drill a pilot hole into the bone and insert the titanium post. Finally, the gum is stitched closed. Over the next three to six months, the implant will fuse to the bone. When this process is complete, Dr. Bixby will restore your implants with crowns, bridges, or dentures.
