In what ways may a Charleston area dentist provide dental implant restoration?
Dr. Andrew Greenberg, of Mouth Carolina Dentistry in the Charleston area, has worked with many patients in restoring their dental implants. After a periodontist has surgically placed dental implants, patients will with him for the final restoration. Depending on the reasons in which the dental implants were placed, restoration can be done in many different ways.
When patients are using dental implants to restore a single tooth, they will need to have a dental crown fabricated and placed over the implant. This acts as a false tooth. The crown is made to cover the implant and to match the existing teeth. Dental crowns are created with color, shape, and size in mind to allow them to blend into the natural smile and look as beautiful as possible. Dental crowns also help in restoring the function of the dental arch.
In some instances when patients need to restore several teeth in a row, they may need a healthy support for a dental bridge. A dental implant can be placed as anchor for a dental bridge. However, in most instances, patients will instead consider dentures when these situations arise, as they may be more affordable.
Patients who have full dentures and struggle with keeping them in place may strongly consider the placement of dental implants for implant-supported dentures. Implant supported dentures are full dentures that use implants to hold them firmly in place. The dentures are made to integrate with the implants to snap in place and avoid the need for dental adhesives. These dentures can reduce the irritation and discomfort that is often associated with ill-fitting dentures and reduces the amount of adjustments needed over time.
Dr. Andrew Greenberg restores dental implants for new and existing patients and is happy to provide this service for those who are ready to make dramatic changes in the appearance of their smiles.
