Dental implants are a durable, long-lasting way to replace missing teeth. Whether you need one tooth restored or all of them, the dependability and integrity of these modern tooth replacements make them a smart investment.
Once your implant has been placed by a specialist — such as a periodontist or oral surgeon — we provide your restoration phase in our Easton dental office.
A preventive dental checkup and cleaning every six months is the best way to preserve the health of your natural smile. But there’s more to your routine visit than just polishing away the stain that’s built up since your last appointment. If you feel anxious, you can even ask for nitrous oxide (laughing gas.)
Implants are biocompatible, artificial tooth “roots” that set into your bone near the area of your missing tooth. As new bone integrates around the titanium, your implant permanently fuses with your mouth, giving it added stability. Once osseointegration occurs, an abutment is affixed to the top of each implant, which supports your fixed restoration (such as a crown, bridge, or All-on-Four denture.)
Rather than alter the structure of adjacent teeth to anchor a fixed bridge or partial denture into place, implants offer several advantages to traditional tooth replacement treatments:
Most of the implant restorations that Dr. Heller performs are single tooth crowns. Because the porcelain crown is set over your implant abutment, the overall results look and feel much like a natural tooth.
Depending on the scope of your implant therapy, other alternatives such as implant supported bridges and dentures (“All-on-Four”) may also be available. Dr. Heller will work closely with your Easton implant surgeon to map out the phases of treatment and final restoration process.
