Dental Implants in Auburn
Missing teeth for an extended period of time can lead to jawbone resorption, inhibiting patient comfort and smile aesthetics. At the practice of Dr. Tom S. Rohdy, we provide treatment to restore dental function and cosmetics, while preserving the strength of the jawbone.
If you are missing one or more teeth and are interested in dental implants as an option for permanent teeth replacement, contact our Auburn implant dentist today.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
While traditional dental restorations provide the support necessary to regain bite function and a seamless smile, they do little to prevent bone depletion. Through the use of dental implants, our Auburn dental practice preserves the strength of the bone, as well as facial shape. Implant posts are made from biocompatible titanium, allowing them to integrate with the bone and act as the root to your replacement tooth or teeth.
Dental implants also limit negative effect on the neighboring healthy teeth. Where traditional restorations usually depend on remaining teeth for support, implant-retained prosthetics are self-contained and are held up entirely by one or more titanium posts.
Options for Implant-Supported Restorations
When providing your implant exam and consultation, we help you understand the options available and whether you qualify immediately or require pre-treatment. Once your implants have been placed and fully integrated, Dr. Rohdy adds the final restoration to complete your smile. Our Auburn implant provider uses implants to support a number of different restorations dependent on patients’ individual needs.
Single Tooth Restorations: Crowns can be supported by implant posts in order to restore singular missing teeth. These prosthetics look and feel like natural teeth and can be cleaned through regular brushing and flossing.
Implant-Supported Bridges: Bridges are supported by two or more implants, allowing for the replacement of multiple missing teeth. These prosthetics support comfortable speech and bite function and can be matched to the shade of the neighboring teeth.
Removable and Hybrid Dentures: Implant-supported dentures are held by clasps that attach to two or more implant posts. These dentures can be removed for cleaning each night, but do not slip out of place as traditional dentures do.
Hybrid dentures combine the full-mouth restoration of dentures with the convenience of implanted bridges. This option restores full bite function bite and is only removed by our Auburn implant dentist for cleaning appointments.
