Why Choose Dental Implants?
While crowns, bridges, and dentures visibly replace teeth, they do not stimulate your jawbone. When even one tooth is lost, a domino effect occurs that can compromise both the health and appearance of your smile. When teeth are not completed restored, including the roots, the jawbone shrinks, leading to a prematurely aged appearance.
Dental implants replace not only the crowns of teeth but roots as well. The titanium implants posts preserve bone health and enable patients to chew and smile with full confidence. With implant-supported restorations, you won’t have to worry about the embarrassing and often uncomfortable slipping that is common with traditional, adhesive dentures. Any surrounding teeth will not be affected by implants; no alterations are required in order to affix crowns and bridges.
Implant Treatment Options in Columbus
During your initial consultation, Dr. Turner uses intraoral cameras and digital x-rays to performs a thorough assessment of your dental anatomy and ensure you are a viable candidate. If bone loss has already occurred, a procedure such as a bone graft may be performed by a trusted periodontist. But if the patient’s gums are healthy and there is adequate bone structure, treatment can proceed.
Implants generally take three to six months to heal properly. During the recovery period, you are provided with temporaries that allow you to function normally. Once you are ready, your permanent restoration is attached and you can enjoy your new, healthy smile. Our implant-supported prosthetics are crafted from porcelain, a sturdy material which resembles natural enamel and can be customized to match the shade of surrounding teeth.
Along with single unit crowns and bridges, we also provide snap-on dentures for patients in need of full arches of new teeth. Patients who have already experienced resorption can also benefit from the All-on-4 treatment method, which utilizes fewer implants than typical overdenture treatment plans.
