Dental Implant Services
Missing teeth can hamper a person’s quality of life. However, dental implants provide comprehensive solutions to problems caused by missing teeth. Austin Park Dental offers full-mouth reconstruction by placing and restoring dental implants to restore patients’ smile.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are prosthesis for missing teeth. These restorations are constructed using three parts: the root, the abutment, and the crown. The root is made of titanium that works especially well with bone, bonding with the jaw to bolster its strength. The abutment and crown are placed above the implant root to support chewing power, restoring the appearance and function in the process.
Patients who choose dental implants gain a broad range of benefits, including:
- Increased Jawbone Strength
- Improved Appearance
- Enhanced Function
- Increased Stability
- Prevention of Accelerated Jawbone Deterioration
Types of Implant Restorations
Austin Park Dental utilizes dental implants for an assortment of restorations, including replacements for a single tooth, multiple teeth with bridges, or an entire arch of teeth with dentures.
Dental implant treatment at Austin Park Dental include same-day teeth replacements. Immediately after a tooth has been removed, through avulsion or extraction, Dr. Bruce can place an implant in just one day, preventing the jawbone from deteriorating and preserving structure.
We also offer implant-supported dentures for patients looking for the best aspects of removable dentures and dental implants. Similar to traditional dentures, implant-supported dentures are removable; however, this procedure affords patients the increased stability of dental implants.
Our office also offers All-on-4, which allows an entire arch of teeth to rest on only four implants. This is an excellent option for patients failing to meet adequate jawbone density requirements.
Preparing for Dental Implants
Patients require adequate bone density in order to receive and support implant posts. Patients may require bone grafting prior to receiving dental implants in order to bolster the jaw and improve its density.
Patients in Akron and Barberton can look forward to complete smile makeovers in as little as one day with dental implants.
