Ideally, anyone who is missing one or more teeth can benefit from implant-supported teeth replacements. Implants replace the roots of lost teeth, and they add an extra layer of security to your new teeth. Implants can support crowns, bridges, and dentures. When you have implants, you also don’t need denture adhesives, and you can eat the same foods you can eat with healthy, natural teeth.
Thanks to our extended hours and staff of several dentists, we can usually see you soon after a dental emergency. Our dentists are passionate about saving teeth damaged by infection or traumatic injury. We also use advanced dental technology that helps us diagnose you quickly and get you out of pain fast.
You can choose from multiple tooth replacement options at Advanced Dental Center, several of which involve dental implants. To replace a single tooth, we can attach a dental crown to a dental implant. For multiple missing teeth, we can use a dental bridge or dentures, either of which can be attached to dental implants. If you’d prefer, we can secure a dental bridge or dentures to your remaining healthy teeth. We can even use dental implants to place a full arch of replacement teeth in a procedure called All-on-4®. We will use four (for the bottom) or six (for the top) dental implants to secure your new smile. Our dentists are happy to assess your situation and review your options with you to help you make the best choice.
If you’re feeling anxious about a procedure, we can give you a sedative to help you relax. We can offer a prescription pill to be taken ahead of time. Even if you’re not feeling anxious, sedation dentistry can be useful in other situations: if you have sensitive teeth, will be undergoing lengthy treatment, experience difficulty getting numb, or have a sensitive gag reflex.
Dental implants are replacements for the roots of your missing teeth. Mini dental implants are like full-sized implants, only smaller – but don’t let their size fool you. Mini implants can do the same things as standard implants. Mini implants can support a dental crown, a dental bridge, and even a full set of dentures.
