Tooth loss can have detrimental effects on your oral health and smile. Fortunately, there are effective dental implant restoration methods available to rejuvenate patients’ smiles at Stubbs Dental in Bountiful, UT and Layton, UT. This tooth replacement treatment, using either traditional implants or the All-on-4® technique, provides improved stability and function for years to come. Additionally, your dental implant restorations will not only appear natural, but will function just like original teeth. Over the years and many implant cases, the doctors at Stubbs Dental have not only refined their techniques and procedural processes but have also been able to minimize the cost to our patients. This has allowed us to significantly improve the entire dental implant experience for many satisfied patients.
Types of Dental Implant Restoration
There are two main types of restorations that can be attached to dental implants. Porcelain crowns replace a single tooth, and full or partial dentures are designed to replace two or more consecutive missing teeth. A full denture represents a complete dental arch, or the lower or bottom row of teeth. An implant-supported bridge fills a gap in the smile that is adjacent to your original teeth.
Your artificial teeth will be attached to a dental implant secured with unparalleled durability at the jawbone. Depending on your oral health requirements, you may receive traditional dental implants or All-on-4® implants. Both options involve a procedure that surgically embeds the titanium implants into the jaw. The All-on-4® method represents a more streamlined process and requires only four implants to secure a denture in place.
All-on-4® implant restorations possess a number of advantages. First, this treatment can restore your smile and bite in just one appointment. You will leave our office with a prosthetic that resembles real teeth with impressive accuracy in both appearance and functionality. Although you may experience sensitivity immediately after implant placement, this usually subsides within a few days.
At Stubbs Dental, we can also convert your existing traditional prosthetic into one that is implant-retained.
Additionally, All-on-4® implants can prevent jawbone recession. By replacing your tooth roots, the implants halt the degradation of jawbone tissue. This protects your natural jawline and prevents the sunken look that can accompany tooth loss.
Unlike traditional dentures, All-on-4® supported restorations allow you to eat what you choose and will not slip out of place. At Stubbs Dental, we can also convert your existing traditional prosthetic into one that is implant-retained at a cost savings for you.
