Independence Family and Cosmetic Dentistry
Rather than relying on removable or fixed prosthetics, you can achieve the free-standing complete tooth replacement you desire with dental implants.
Dental implants thoroughly replace your missing tooth. Unlike other dental prosthetics, which replace only the portion above your gumline, dental implants replace your roots. Above your gumline, we use what we call a “restoration” to replace the visible portion of your tooth that rests above your gumline. Consider the following explanations for a clear understanding of this type of prosthetic:
Is a titanium post that Dr. Roberson will place into your jawbone through a surgical procedure. During recovery, the post will fuse to your bone for a permanent bond.
Dr. Roberson will complete, or restore, your tooth replacement. He will discuss a variety of options with you, including a dental crown for one or more single tooth replacements. Or, you may agree on implant-retained partial or full dentures if you are missing multiple teeth or a full arch.
With this restorative treatment comes a wonderful return on your investment, thanks to the following advantages:
If you are missing one tooth, two or more teeth side-by-side, teeth spread across an arch, or all of your teeth, and you want a permanent teeth replacement solution with unsurpassable stability, you may make a wonderful candidate for dental implants. However, implants require a healthy jawbone.
For a somewhat weak jawbone, Dr. Roberson may suggest same day implants. We complete same day implants within one visit. They require smaller implant posts and are less demanding on your jawbone.
Or in the case of severe jaw deterioration, Dr. Roberson may suggest bone grafting, a process in which he replaces missing jawbone tissue with your own healthy bone tissue.
At Independence Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Scott Roberson offers expert dental care for your entire family, including cosmetic, restorative, and preventive services. Many other preventive services and treatments are part of different care plans to stop sensitivity, decay rates and dry mouth problems.
