Tooth Replacement Options
If you are living without teeth, or know that you are having an extraction soon, you need this information. Below you will find a short description of each of our tooth replacement options. These options are reliable, long-lasting ways to restore the appearance, health, and functionality of your smile. We would love to help you achieve the results you need. Feel free to contact our office with any questions you may have.
Traditional Single Implants
Dental implants can offer you the reliable, beautiful results you need to look and feel great. You may be missing one of your own natural teeth, but we can offer you top-of-the-line prosthetics to help replace what you have lost. A dental implant is designed to completely replace the natural tooth root by actually fusing to the jawbone to create a permanent bond. We then load the implant with a beautiful, custom-made crown that will look and feel natural in your mouth. This setup will restore your natural chewing power and give you the confidence you have been lacking. Check out our page on dental implants to learn more.
Mini Dental Implants
Mini dental implants work just like traditional implants, except that they are smaller in size. Because of this, they are easier to place and can be used in varying situations. Even if you have experienced substantial bone deterioration due to periodontitis, this option may be for you. However, do note that mini dental implants are not as strong as traditional implants — so they aren’t for everyone. Talk to Dr. Sykora to determine if mini dental implants are right for you.
All-on-4 Dental Implants
Our All-on-4 implant procedure uses four strategically placed dental implants (two near the front, two in the back at an angle) to support an entire arch of teeth. This is a wonderful option for people who are missing many or all of their natural teeth. We can help you get the results you need without the invasiveness of a full set of individual implants. Learn more about our All-on-4 implants here.
We also offer removable dentures for patients in need. However, this tooth replacement option is less reliable and more inconvenient than our implant options. Depending on your specific needs, we can help you determine which option is best for you.
A fixed bridge is a permanent, noninvasive way to replace one or a few missing teeth. Unlike implants, the bridge is not inserted into your gum and there is no surgery. Learn more about bridges here. Talk to Dr. Sykora to see if a fixed bridge is right for you.
