What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are natural-looking replacements for missing teeth that also provide the same function as your natural tooth root. In addition to replacing individual teeth, implants can be used to anchor other types of restorations such as bridges and dentures. Implants usually provide for greater success and overall patient satisfaction.
A More Natural Approach
A dental implant is a small, sturdy, titanium post that acts as the root structure would for a natural tooth. A dental implant is placed into your upper or lower jaw bone. After the bone has grown around the implant, implants can hold a crown, bridge or over-denture just like roots hold natural teeth in place. Implants are very durable and can last a lifetime. They require the same maintenance as natural teeth; this includes brushing, flossing and regular dental check-ups.
Reasons you may want to consider dental implants:
- To replace one or more teeth
- To provide support for a partial denture
- To increase the support and stability of full upper or lower denture
- To enhance chewing comfort
- To increase confidence while smiling, talking and eating, and to improve esthetic appearance
- To improve your overall psychological health
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a series of clear, removable teeth aligners that both orthodontists and dentists use as an alternative to traditional metal dental braces.
How does it work?
Invisalign treatment consists of a series of aligners that get switched out about every two weeks. Each aligner is individually manufactured with exact calculations to gradually shift your teeth into place. The Invisalign system is custom-made for your teeth and your teeth only.
Invisalign is effective at treating a wide variety of orthodontic issues including:
- Over bite
- Under bite
- Deep bite
- Open bite
Inlays, Onlays & Crowns
What is a Crown?
A crown is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth. They are typically bonded to the tooth using a dental cement. Crowns can be made from many materials, such as porcelain, pressed ceramics, or even gold. Crowns are often used to improve the strength or appearance of teeth.
What is an Inlay/Onlay?
Whereas a crown completely caps or encircles a tooth, an inlay is an indirect restoration (filling) consisting of a solid substance (porcelain, ceramic, or gold) that is fitted to a cavity in a tooth and cemented into place. An onlay is the same as an inlay, except that it extends to replace a cusp (particular surface of a tooth).
