Comprehensive Prosthodontic Treatment
If your mouth has damaged or diseased teeth, you will be in good hands with Dr. Bassas at i-Implant Dentistry. Depending on the issues you are having, Dr. Bassas might recommend any of the following restorative procedures:
For patients who are missing one, more, or all of their teeth, dental implants are the best way to regain the function of your mouth. Secured directly to the jawbone with a natural-looking crown placed on top of the implant abutment, dental implants not only look similar to your teeth but they function like them as well. At i-Implant Dentistry, we will place dental implants, but for those patients who might prefer dentures, we also offer the All-on-4 option.
The All-on-4 dental implant procedure provides you with a new full set of teeth. All-on-4 essentially means that all teeth—full dental arches—are stabilized on four or more dental implants. Patients who opt for All-on-4 enjoy a dramatic improvement in teeth stability and comfort immediately. Unlike dentures alone, implant-supported dentures stimulate the jawbone and prevent “facial collapse,” which is the caved-in look that happens when the jawbone deteriorates. With All-on-4, dentures are completely stable, letting patients eat, laugh, and talk with confidence.
In cases where a tooth is chipped, cracked, or so decayed it can no longer hold a filling, a dental crown might be your best option. A dental crown will save your tooth and return it to its normal function. When put into place, the crown will strengthen the structure of the remaining portion of the tooth.
If you lose one or more teeth, it is important to replace them as quickly as possible. What most people don’t realize is that when even one tooth is missing, this can lead to the movement of other teeth in the mouth, ultimately leading to more missing teeth. A dental bridge fills in the space left behind by one or more missing teeth. The prosthetic teeth of a dental bridge fill in the spaces left by missing teeth, restoring full function to the patient.
Full Mouth Reconstruction/Rehabilitation
If you have a number of dental issues that need to be repaired, talk to Dr. Bassas about a full mouth reconstruction/rehabilitation. It not only addresses the esthetics of your smile, but it also considers the overall function and health of the mouth. Some of the reasons you might need a full mouth rehabilitation are old dental work that is failing, lost teeth, jaw pain, and other issues. Any number of cosmetic or restorative treatments will be used. See Dr. Bassas for a full consultation of recommended treatment options.
