If you are missing teeth, dental implants could be the ideal solution. Dr. Josh Muir provides implants to replace your missing teeth and give you back a healthy and fully functional smile. Unlike other prosthetic options, an implant replaces both the root and crown of your tooth to provide a long-term solution that will improve your oral health as well as restore your smile.
Implants consist of two main parts: the implant post and the implant restoration. The implant post replaces the tooth root and provides a stable foundation for your tooth by stimulating your supporting bone tissue to keep it strong and healthy. The implant restoration caps the post to complete your treatment. Depending on how many teeth you are having replaced, the restoration may be a crown, bridge, or a full or partial denture.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Muir will determine if you are a candidate for implant dentistry. Almost everyone is a candidate, though if you have a preexisting condition such as tooth decay or periodontal disease, we will recommend that you receive treatment to resolve that condition prior to receiving an implant.
When you receive an implant, our skilled dentist will surgically insert the implant post into your jawbone. After a period of healing, you will return to receive your custom-made implant restoration. We will provide you with post-op instructions as well as instructions on the best ways to care for your implant. Implants are designed to be permanent replacements for your teeth, and when properly cared for with good oral hygiene and regular preventive care, they can last for a lifetime.
At our office, we can provide a variety of implant services, including:
- Single-Tooth Replacement
- Multiple-Teeth Replacement
- Full-Arch Replacement
- Mini Dental Implants
- Implant Repair
Even a single missing tooth can have a negative effect on your oral health and the function of your mouth. We can use an implant to restore your smile.
We can help you if you are missing multiple teeth with implant-supported crowns and bridges. Simply visit our practice for a consultation and our implant dentist will help you plan your treatment.
Missing entire arches of your teeth? You could be a good candidate for full-arch replacement at our practice. Call us today to schedule your consultation and learn how your smile can be restored.
One excellent solution for patients who are missing an arch of teeth is All-on-4®. This advanced technique supports a restoration on four implants to provide a stable and long-lasting solution.
Are you interested in the benefits of dental implants but want a more conservative solution? Mini dental implants use smaller posts to shorten the necessary recovery time and make them more affordable.
Whether the restoration is damaged, or your posts have become loose, we can help you. Contact us today to schedule an appointment and learn about implant repair.
