Restorative Dental Treatments
There are multiple restorative dentistry options for patients at Premier Dental Care:
One of the most durable solutions for replacing missing teeth is dental implants. During the dental implant process, a titanium post is inserted into bone tissue. The post fuses to the jaw bone over a period of 3 to 6 months. After this period, an abutment and permanent dental crown are placed for a full restoration. Dental implants can help prevent overcrowding and other problems that arise from missing teeth.
Dental bridges can be used to replace several consecutive teeth by utilizing the support of adjacent teeth or dental implants. This restorative treatment can be removable or secured with dental implants for a more secure and stable fit. Dental bridges can be a great customizable choice for patients.
Dentures and Partials
Patients who are missing the top or bottom arches of teeth, can benefit from dentures and partials. Like dental bridges, dentures can be secured with dental implants for a more comfortable and permanent fit. Patients often report that dentures make it easier for them to bite and chew. This option can restore the form and function of teeth.
