Missing and damaged teeth can impact both dental aesthetics and function, resulting in serious consequences for your confidence and your overall oral health. Thankfully, there are a number of tooth replacement options that can restore the teeth with natural-looking results and improved functionality. Here at Oral & Facial Surgeons of Arizona, we can work with you to figure out the best treatment for your needs.
Tooth replacement options available at our practice include the following:
- Dental Implants can be used to replace a single tooth, rows of teeth, and even entire dental arches. They are functionally designed to completely replace individual teeth, including the root. Titanium posts inserted into the jawbone offer enhanced stability while also stimulating bone and tissue growth, and custom crowns or dental appliances securely affixed to the posts can closely emulate both the look and feel of natural teeth.
- All-on-4® Implant-Supported Fixed Denture Hybrids present a revolutionary option for those missing all or most of the teeth on one or both of their dental arches. This technique offers both the structural stability of implants and the increased coverage of a traditional denture. It also negates the need for certain dietary restrictions and adhesive pastes often associated with removable dentures, giving patients a greater degree of freedom and confidence. For each dental arch, a set of strategically located titanium posts will be surgically implanted into the jawbone. These posts will then be topped with a custom dental prosthetic, which can create a durable, long-lasting, and natural-looking smile.
- Zygomatic Implants are an advanced restorative dentistry option for those who are missing teeth in their upper dental arch, but who lack the adequate jawbone density for traditional implants. Using a longer post, zygomatic implants are embedded into the cheekbone, offering increased stability and treatment eligibility for patients with significant upper jawbone deterioration.
