5 Questions you must ask before getting Dental Implants
Are you embarrassed to smile because of missing teeth? Let us help you.
Did you know that Dental Implants are a great solution to replace missing teeth?
If you are missing teeth, dental implants might be the ideal cosmetic solution for you. These implants are small titanium posts that are placed into the jawbone in places where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, and that creates a sturdy foundation for artificial teeth that appear, function, and feel like real teeth. At Dr. Zak North Park Dental Care, we believe that with your new Implants, you will have the confidence to eat, speak, laugh, and enjoy all aspects of life.
Dental Implant Supported Bridges
Guidelines Following Implants Surgery
An implant overdenture is a cosmetic denture that has a direct connection to dental implants. This connection helps keep the full denture in place and overcomes the instability and lack of retention that a common complete denture provides. At. Dr. Zak North Park Dental Care we feel that an implant overdenture is an excellent choice for you if you need full cosmetic dentures but don’t want a bulky or instable restoration.
Removable Partial Denture
Are you looking for a cost-effective way to cosmetically replace missing teeth?
Removable partial dentures are the most economic cosmetic tooth replacement solution. They are greatly varied in both complexity and durability and range from elaborate systems of clasps and teeth to simple plastic clips. They are fitted to the shape of your mouth and can be extremely comfortable when properly made, but they may not blend as well as other forms of cosmetic dentures and may need a period of adjustment. These partial dentures are made to be removed and the mouth must be cleaned after eating, otherwise the places where they clip onto the teeth will quickly decay. Although this is a great temporary treatment, at Dr. Zak North Park Dental Care we do not recommend removable partial dentures as a permanent cosmetic solution due to its many disadvantages.
What is a Fixed Bridge?
A bridge helps fill the space where a tooth once was, and it generally includes three or more crowns that have been fused together. When your teeth undergo extreme damage and are beyond repair, zirconia or zirconia “fused on gold” crowns can be a great cosmetic procedure to restore your smile. At Dr. Zak North Park Dental Care we feel that this technique is very reliable for repairing even the most severe dental issues and creates a permanent cosmetic solution for replacing missing teeth and improving your smile and bite.
