Dental Implants in San Ramon - Teeth Replacement Options - Restorations
Missing teeth not only impact aesthetics but overall health as well. With dental implants and restorations, patients’ smiles are full, comfortable, and healthy. At New Age Dentistry
, we place and restore dental implants, providing teeth replacement solutions to patients in San Ramon and neighboring communities.
What Are Dental Implants?
A dental implant consists of three intricate parts: the post, abutment, and the restoration. Made out of a biocompatible titanium alloy, the dental implant post replicates the missing tooth root. This allows for more supportive in essential oral structures, such as the jaw bone, which naturally integrates with the post to become stronger. The abutment is used to attach the aesthetic restoration to the post, and together replace the exposed tooth. Dental implants address tooth loss and restore the whole tooth entirely.
Implant Dentistry by Dr. Steinmetz
During your dental implant consultation, our San Ramon dentist takes the time to listen and understand your oral health concerns, as well as provide treatment solutions that restore the health of your smile. Depending on the number of missing teeth in your smile, there is a dental implant restoration option for you.
Single Dental Implants
Dental implants topped with a porcelain crown can replace singular missing teeth. Traditionally, if a patient is missing only one tooth, a bridge would be recommended. However, bridges utilize neighboring healthy teeth, which are altered and capped with crowns to support the restoration. With single dental implants, the missing tooth is replaced and surrounding teeth are kept in their healthy state.
Implant bridges utilize implant posts as support instead of natural teeth. This treatment is recommended for patients who are missing one or more teeth. If you find yourself clenching or grinding teeth, an implant-supported bridge is a viable option, as it reduces the pressure on individual implants, distributing it evenly across the bridge.
Edentulous patients who find their dentures uncomfortable, despite consistent use of adhesives to secure their prostheses, can benefit from the support of dental implants. Dental implants stabilize dentures, replacing a full arch of missing teeth. Patients experience renewed, comfortable function and wear of their prosthesis, allowing them the freedom to eat and speak without worry that their dentures may shift out of place.
