One of the most dramatic, effective ways available to replace missing teeth is with dental implants. Implants have become the chosen technique for the treatment of patients with one or several missing teeth. Vineland Family Dentistry provides comprehensive dental implant services, as well as implant restoration treatments for patients who have had implants performed with other providers.
Our Implant Dentistry Services Include:
A full sized traditional implant is made of hospital-grade titanium and is placed directly into the bone where the missing tooth once was. After placement, a period of healing will take place so that new bone formation can occur around the implant. Once healing is complete, an abutment is placed on the implant root, and a permanent appliance is installed, such as a crown, bridge, or fixed denture.
Mini-implants are smaller and delivered in a single treatment appointment. They are useful in patients who have limited bone quality or for stabilizing removable prosthesis for a more secure fit.
Implant crowns and bridges are almost exactly like traditional crowns and bridges, but instead of resting on the gums, they are supported by an implant root. A single implant can support one or two crowns fused together, but a bridge of several teeth can be supported on just two implant roots.
Patients in need of replacing all of their teeth can choose an alternative to traditional dentures: the implant-supported denture. Implant dentures are smaller, and take up much less space with their unique horseshoe-shaped design. They stay in place permanently, providing patients with a secure fit that they’ll never have to worry about.
