Implant Restoration – Option 2

Text Transcription

Your dental surgeon may give you the option of replacing the lost tissue with pink porcelain or a better esthetic outcome.

Implant Restoration – Option 1

Text Transcription

Patient has a non-gummy smile and hence does not reveal the loss of bone and gum tissue following tooth loss.

Why Implants

Text Transcription

Replacing a missing tooth with a dental bridge requires unnecessary preparation of the neighboring teeth to support the bridge.

Bone loss continues below the bridge leading to gum recession.

Plaque accumulation below the bridge causes gum inflammation and decay of the supporting teeth.

Decay may progress unnoticed leading to abscess of the supporting teeth.

A flipper is a removable option for replacing a missing tooth.

Bone loss continues below a flipper leading to gum recession, plaque accumulation and gum inflammation and adjacent teeth decay.

Maryland Bridge is another fixed option to replace a missing tooth.

The winged extension of the Bridge may easily debond requiring repeated bonding.

Bone loss continues. Plaque accumulation may cause gum inflammation and decay of the adjacent teeth.

The standard of care for replacing a missing tooth is a dental implant.

Dental Implant maintains bone and gum levels.

Neighboring teeth are not destroyed.

Dental Implants feels and functions like your own teeth.
