Implant Dentures and Bridges in SouthPark
Missing multiple teeth? Learn how Dr. Martin transforms smiles with multi-tooth dental implants.
While single dental implants are great for patients missing one or a few teeth, individuals with extensive tooth loss or those wearing dentures often find that single implants are not enough to improve their smiles. At ART Dentistry, multiple tooth restorations like implant-dentures and implant-bridges offer a hybrid alternative that combines the full coverage of a denture or bridge with the stability of dental implants.
We know that every patient has their own unique needs and strive to provide every smile with the in-depth, comprehensive care they deserve. To help out patients achieve their dental health goals, Dr. Martin offers the following full-mouth dental implant restorations:
For patients missing most or all the teeth in an arch, implant-supported dentures are a great solution if you need a full smile restoration. More stable than traditional dentures, implant dentures are secured into place with a series of fixtures screwed into the jawbone. This full arch replacement is made to be removable to allow patients to easily clean the gums below the prosthetic.
Part of the advantage of implant dentures is that this treatment uses dental implants as a support, rather than adhesion or suction. As a result, patients enjoy better bite stability as well as oral function. Even more importantly, the use of dental implants helps prevent jawbone shrinking or resorption, ultimately preserving the shape of the face and improving oral health. Made to fit each individual patient, your smile will look natural and beautiful, be comfortable to wear and give you back your self-confidence.
Similar to dental implant-secured dentures, implant bridges are designed to replace multiple teeth in an arch with several strategically placed implants. Ideal for individuals who are missing multiple teeth but not the entire arch, implant bridges allow individuals to replace these lost teeth without having to compromise neighboring healthy teeth.
With implant bridges, patients regain confidence in the way their smile looks and functions. Individuals who opt for this treatment also enjoy the added benefit that the treatment is working to improve the overall health of their smile. By supporting the bridge with implants, neighboring healthy teeth that would otherwise be altered to support a bridge are left intact. Ultimately, implant bridges can help ensure your teeth and smile are as healthy as ever and give you a natural looking smile.
