Dental Implant-Retained Tooth Replacement in Lake in the Hills
Traditional tooth replacement solutions restore only the visible portions of teeth, but replacing the root structure hidden below the gum line is essential to maintaining the optimal level of oral health. Dental implant-retained tooth replacement restores the entire tooth roots and crown. The process is completed in two phases: placement and restoration. We partner with an oral surgeon or periodontist to complete the placement phase of treatment. This is a surgical procedure where a small incision is made in the gums and a titanium post is inserted. Over the course of three to six months, the implant post fuses with the gum tissue and jawbone mimicking the natural root structure. Once this phase of the treatment process is complete, patients return to Compassionate Dental Care for the placement of prosthetics. Contact our team to find out more or schedule a dental implant consultation today.
Dental implant supported tooth replacement is versatile enough to restore any number of missing teeth from a single implant dental crown to replace individual teeth to a full denture. However extensive the tooth loss, our dedicated team will attach a high quality, natural looking dental prosthetic to fully renew the look and feel of your smile. We offer implant-retained dental crowns and bridges for patients missing one to four consecutive teeth. For patients with extensive tooth loss, we craft partial and full dentures that can be attached to implants. These prosthetics are available in fixed or removable varieties.
All-on-4 Implant Dentures
Patients who have previously been unable to receive an implant-retained denture may be good candidates for All-on-4 dentures. As the name suggests, this is an implant denture system that supports an entire arch of teeth on just four dental implants. All-on-4 makes use of the naturally denser bone tissue at the front of the jaw. Two implants are placed directly into the front of the jaw. The other two are angled from the back of the smile and implanted in the front of the jaw. That means the entire denture receives adequate support with fewer dental implants, less invasive surgery, and no need for complex bone or gum tissue grafts. Most patients are also able to have a temporary denture placed on the same day as their implants.
