Reviving Your Smile
Even if you have terminal dentition, there is a solution. We can extract and then replace your teeth with dental implants.
This is never something we want to undertake lightly–saving your teeth is usually the best solution. We will recommend alternative procedures to save your teeth, if possible. If not, then we will recommend a tooth replacement.
At your first consultation, Dr. Kendall or Dr. Fox will make a detailed study of the current condition of your mouth. We will take a combination of pictures, x-rays, cone beam computed tomography, and other tools to determine the exact state of your oral health. We may take physical impressions and digital ones to help us design your restorations. We’ll talk about the procedure and your goals. Then, we will design a set of restorations that meets your goals. Lastly, we will discuss the treatment plan and once we’re both happy with the concept. To ensure the best function after your natural teeth have been removed, we recommend dental implants.
Dental implants look and function just like your natural teeth. They also have the ability to last a lifetime.
After discussing your treatment plan, we will schedule your implant surgery. The number of dental implants we use depends on your functional goals. You will receive a temporary restoration that will look better than the natural teeth you lost and may function better, too. The function of your temporaries will vary.
After six months or so of healing, we will be able to place your final restorations, replacing your entire arch of teeth. These restorations will be very attractive and will function as you requested, they can function as well as your natural teeth ever did.
