dental implant restorations
A dental implant is a surgically-placed post that supports your replacement teeth. If you’re missing teeth, or if your teeth have degraded and cause pain, implants can be considered as a treatment option. Before implants are placed, a restorative plan should be developed so that the ideal result is achieved. Our dentist at Culp Dental can discuss all restorative options that involve dental implants to determine which one can meet your dental needs.
Single tooth replacements,
or implant crowns
A single tooth implant is a natural-looking, stable option for individuals who are missing a tooth, or require a tooth to be replaced. With a single tooth replacement, or implant crown, you can enjoy an organic look and comfortable bite.
multiple teeth replacements,
or implant bridges
An implant bridge is typically recommended if you are missing more than one tooth in the same area. This option leaves you with natural-looking teeth that feel more secure and comfortable than a removable partial denture.
Implant-retained removable dentures, or overdentures
The main benefit of overdentures is the increased stability as compared to conventional complete dentures. With implants holding the dentures in place, you can enjoy the foods you love without fear of movement or lack of chewing efficiency.
Implant-supported fixed dentures, or hybrids
With a fixed hybrid denture, your dentures will stay in the mouth and can only be removed by a dentist. This option is for patients that desire a low maintenance prosthesis with as close to a natural feel as possible. Much like an overdenture, this is a great option if you are missing all of your teeth.
