Implant-Retained Bridges – Plano, TX
Rebuild a Complete Smile with Dental Implants
Losing multiple teeth can be detrimental to your self-esteem and your quality of life. Not to mention, there will be long-term consequences for your oral health. You need an effective and natural-looking solution to rebuild your smile. Dr. Antoon embraces the latest innovations in dentistry to treat tooth loss. If you’re missing multiple teeth, he can restore your smile using dental implants in Plano.
Two Consecutive Missing Teeth
Two or more consecutive missing teeth are typically replaced using a bridge and crowns. Although this is convenient and effective, you need to permanently alter healthy teeth to support the bridge. It also only provides a short-term fix for a long-term problem.
You can replace your missing teeth without relying on your adjacent ones for support using a dental implant. This replaces the entire structure of a tooth to enjoy exceptional benefits that aren’t possible with a fixed bridge.
Three or More Consecutive Missing Teeth
Dental implants can also be used to replace three or more missing teeth. A titanium implant post is surgically placed into your jawbone to support your bridge at either end. You won’t need to alter healthy teeth to support it, and you’ll also promote your oral health. Your remaining teeth will have the support they need to stay in place for a true investment in your smile.
Multiple Missing Teeth Throughout an Arch
Significant tooth loss is often treated with a partial denture which fills the space of missing teeth using prosthetics and a metal framework to clip it onto your teeth. Although this is effective, it won’t feel natural.
Depending on your severity of tooth loss and the location of your missing teeth, Dr. Antoon can use single unit implants and/or implant-supported bridges to complete your smile. You’ll never need to worry about any slipping or irritation to chew, speak, and smile with ease.
Benefits of Implant-Retained Dental Prosthetics
Traditional dental prosthetics only replace the portions of the teeth visible above the gum line. Although it improves your oral functions and the appearance of your smile, you’ll still suffer various complications associated with missing teeth, like bone loss.
Replacing the entire structure of a tooth with a dental implant allows you to enjoy several benefits that aren’t possible using traditional treatments, including:
- Over a 95% success rate to last for several decades with the right care.
- High-quality materials for a natural-looking appearance.
- Regain as much as 70% of your natural biting force.
- Preserves your jawbone’s density.
- Doesn’t alter healthy teeth or rely on them for support.
- Improves your oral health.
- Easy maintenance and care.
- Long-term, cost-effective solution.
