Dental implants have revolutionized the field of dentistry. The missing teeth can now be replaced permanently with a simple treatment. Dental implants can be placed at the same time as the extraction of a tooth or shortly after. Dental implants act as a root for the crown of the tooth. They also allow preservation of the jaw bone adjacent to the area, and help reduce future bone loss.
There are various methods of dental implants. Multiple teeth which are missing could be replaced with several implants and non-removable prosthesis, or they may be replaced with a denture, which has a retentive component. Full mouth reconstruction is now possible. Dental procedures for full mouth rehabilitation have significantly improved the quality of life for our patients. Loose dentures can now be stabilized using implants to allow for better chewing function. Dental implants allow individual, missing, or fractured front teeth to be restored with excellent cosmetic results. At Eastlake Dentistry, we use various implant systems designed to treat specific needs. We also provide the latest in Zygomatic implants for patients with significant maxillary resorption, who are medically compromised, or do not wish to have the bone grafting procedure done.
