Implants and Restorative Dentistry in Fishers IN

Posted By : Aubrey Mead , on Dec, 2015

 

Restorative dentistry in Fishers IN has many benefits for people with one or more missing teeth. Dental bridges, for example, helps people chew and speak properly, prevents teeth near gaps from shifting, fills out the natural shape of the face, and enhances the smile. Traditional dentures can be used to replace upper teeth, lower teeth, or all the teeth. Bridges and dentures can last for up to fifteen years with proper care and maintenance. There are some people who have trouble with traditional bridges and dentures or have a single tooth missing. Fr certain candidates, implants work much better than removable solutions.

Implants, a more invasive aspect of Restorative Dentistry in Fishers IN, can be used to replace any number of missing teeth, including all teeth. The process is not for everyone, and it is completed in stages that can take up to nine months. Ideal candidates are in good physical and oral health, with no gum disease. There has to be plenty of jawbone mass present for the procedure to be successful. A complete dental exam will let the dentist know if a patient is a candidate for an implant. The insertion of the artificial root, which is a screw or cylinder, requires holes be drilled into the jawbone. The artificial root is inserted. The bone must heal and fuse with the root, so tine is needed for that process. That will provide a secure base for the artificial tooth, or teeth. Once healed, an extension is attached to the root before the tooth can be inserted. The artificial, which can be permanent or removable, is then inserted.

The process requires experience, state-of-the-art equipment, the latest techniques, and advanced dental care. It is important to discuss all the options with a qualified dentist before deciding on treatment. Trying traditional restorative methods first, may be recommended.
