Dental Implant Restorations in Tucker
From Single tooth replacement to full mouth restoration, there is no better method to regain full dental function and a naturally beautiful smile, than by crowns or dentures that are supported by dental implants.
At our Tucker Dental office, Dr. Washington is highly trained and experienced in crafting your restoration, whether you need one tooth replaced with a single crown, or a full set of implant supported dentures. He works closely with a trusted oral surgeon who will place your implant.
What You Can Expect from Your Implant Placement Procedure
How your dental implant surgery is performed depends on the number of implants needed as well as the current condition of your jawbone.
Dr. Washington initiates care by thoroughly examining your current dental and overall oral health environment. By also checking the health of your jawbone and gum tissue, they can accurately determine whether you are an ideal candidate for dental implant placement.
Once your oral health is determined in good standing and that your jawbone has enough dentistry to hold your implant posts successfully, our team can perform an accurate and comfortable implant placement procedure. These artificial tooth roots are strategically placed in the jaw by their skilled hands.
Once placed, you are given a few months to heal so the implant can properly fuse to the jaw, creating a strong foundation and stimulating proper jawbone function. Our dental professionals then invite you back to our office so that a mold of your teeth and jawbone are obtained to create your personalized restoration, which will be placed later.
Types of Implant-Supported Restorations
If you are missing one or more teeth and are ready to replace them, you have several types of prosthetics or dental appliances to choose from. The gold standard in tooth replacement is the dental implant. This involves a surgical post being implanted in the jaw, and a restoration being crafted to perfectly match your remaining natural teeth.
It can take up to six months for the post(s) to permanently fuse to your jawbone, which replicates a strong dental root to hold the crown or dental appliance firmly in place. Our dentist follows your progress and provides a temporary cap or denture. When you are ready for the final restoration, he will take digital impressions of your bite and, together, you and Dr. Washington choose the proper shade for your prosthetic.
Single teeth can be replaced by the use of implant supported crowns, allowing us to create natural looking prosthetics. In cases of several missing teeth, hybrid dentures (non-removable dentures that are supported by two or more implants) or implant supported bridges are an excellent choice.
The Benefits of Dental Implantation
• Natural Looking Smile
• Full Dental Function
• Restorations Don’t get Cavities
While adhesive based dentures can slip while eating and speaking, often causing embarrassment to the wearer, dental implants feel like your natural teeth. This leaves you free to laugh, smile openly, and enjoy your favorite foods without restraint. Retained dentures also cannot be misplaced like traditional restorations, as they are only removed by Dr. Washington.
