If you are missing one or more teeth, Dr. Goldberg will create a personalized solution to replace them with a combination of a custom made restoration and teeth implants.
About Dental Implants
An implant is a small post that is used to support a dental restoration. They are placed in the jaw bone via a surgical procedure where they fuse with the surrounding bone making them very stable and durable. One or more implants can be placed anywhere along the arch to support several types of restorations. The type you will need depends on how many teeth you are missing.
- A dental crown will be connected to one dental implant to replace a single tooth
- A dental bridge is used to replace several missing teeth in a row. They are attached to two or more dental implants.
- A denture can replace an entire arch of missing teeth. This requires up to eight dental implants per arch. The more implants placed, the more secure the denture is.
About the Procedure
The process to replace teeth with an implant support restoration requires several procedures and multiple visits and checkups that will take place over several months. Dr. Goldberg will create your personalized treatment plan that will map out the entire process.
The first step is to have the implants placed during a surgical procedure. A temporary restoration will be place if necessary. It will take the implant about three to six months to fully fuse with the bone. Next, a small metal piece called an abutment will be attached to the implants during a minor procedure. After a few weeks of healing, your permanent dental restoration will be affixed.
