Have you had several teeth extracted? Do you need extensive dental work? At Staten Island Dental Care, total mouth reconstruction is possible.
Implants Can Be Used In Many Ways
Dental implants titanium posts that are placed in the jaw, where they fuse with the bone. Implants serve as a solid base of one or multiple artificial teeth. The result is a strong, functional, and natural-looking restoration.
Missing Teeth, Bone Recession, Gum Recession, and Broken Crowns
Every patient is unique, but let’s consider a hypothetical case involving several restorations:
‘Margaret’ was a 67-year-old woman with a mouthful of issues. She had undergone extensive radiation for cancer several years earlier. The radiation therapy damaged soft tissues in her mouth and exacerbated tooth decay.
Eventually, most of her back teeth top and bottom had to be extracted. Four of her existing teeth were cracked and her gums had loosened revealing the metal bases of two old crowns.
Margaret was also missing bone structure due to recession after the extractions. To establish a stable site for the implants, she received bone grafts.
To restore her smile, she received eight dental implants. The implants anchored partial dentures for her upper and lower back teeth. Her front teeth received a combination of porcelain crowns and veneers.
The outcome? A dazzling smile and renewed confidence!
