Dental Implants

Professional Dental Implant Placement and Restoration

Dental implants are a complete method of tooth replacement and the top treatment choice for most dentists and patients. Unlike traditional fixed bridges, there is no need to alter healthy teeth to receive this treatment. Dr. Cox uses modern technologies and has specialized training to ensure the successful treatment of dental implant restorations. 

Dental Implants are Versatile and Durable

Dental ImplantsDental implants include a surgically placed bio-compatible post that serves as the replacement tooth root and a porcelain restoration that mimics the visible portion of teeth. The following prosthetics can be supported by dental implant posts:

Implant-Supported Crowns – A single implant post can support a crown to replace an individual tooth.

Implant-Supported Bridges – At least two implant posts can support a bridge to replace a short row of teeth permanently.

Implant-Supported Dentures – Four to six implant posts can support a full or partial denture to replace a full arch of teeth.

Overdentures – Two implant posts can be used to stabilize removable dentures or “overdentures.”

The Benefits of Dental Implants

Implant postsMissing teeth cause gaps in the smile, and the absent roots leave the jaw without the necessary stimulation to promote healthy bone growth. When tooth roots are missing, a process called resorption leads to a rapid loss of bone mass in the jaw, a protruding chin, and a prematurely aged look.

To qualify for dental implants, you must have enough bone mass in your jaw. Bone grafting and other procedures can prepare you for treatment with dental implants.
