Dental implants are designed to replace missing teeth and teeth that are not salvageable. Implants function and feel like natural teeth. The implant body consists of a titanium post that is placed in the jawbone. Bone integrates with the implant providing a stable anchor to attach a tooth. Implants can support individual crowns, fixed bridges, partial dentures and complete dentures.
Careful and thoughtful treatment planning is important to the success of an implant. 3-D Imaging may be necessary, as well as a guide to show where the implants are to be placed. Dental implants are safe, predictable and often times the most conservative way to replace teeth. For denture wearers, implants can be a “miracle” treatment that can end having to use adhesives and struggling with loose dentures that don’t stay in place. Ask us today about the various implant options—they really can change your life for the better!
As you know—a smile just isn’t a smile if it’s incomplete. Not only are missing teeth not attractive but can cause a host of problems, from difficulty speaking and eating to low self-confidence to jawbone deterioration. Dentures and partials are a cost-effective way to replace multiple missing teeth.
A partial denture, commonly referred to as a partial, consists of teeth and gum-colored acrylic on a metal frame with clasps. Partials are supported by other teeth and the soft tissue where teeth used to be. When implants are used for attachment, the partial can be made much smaller and more inconspicuous.
A denture is a prosthesis replacing a complete arch of teeth mounted on a gum-colored base. A denture is only a fraction as efficient at chewing as natural teeth. At NU SMILE we understand there is an art to making comfortable and functional dentures. He strives to make dentures that don’t look like a denture, in other words, natural-looking.
For people that have difficulty keeping a denture in place, an implant-supported denture solves these problems. Chewing ability, teeth perception, and quality of life can dramatically improve with implant-supported dentures. Many people can continue to wear their existing denture with only slight modifications during the implant healing phase.
Tooth-colored or composite fillings are an aesthetic and conservative way to treat tooth decay. Composite fillings are ideal method of replacing small to moderate amounts of tooth structure. Fillings are adhesively bonded to teeth, allowing you to preserve more of your natural tooth. Composite fillings can closely match the shade of your teeth, and when the material is skillfully layered it can be extremely life-like. Composite fillings can also replace discolored and leaking metal fillings, repair chipped teeth, and close spaces between front teeth.
Why composite fillings take a bit more time to place and are technically more demanding, NU SMILE will be happy to guide you in choosing the best restorative material for your specific needs.
If you’ve lost teeth due to accident, injury, or gum disease, we can create a permanent bridge to restore your smile. A bridge not only fills the gap in your smile, but it also prevents repositioning of remaining teeth. It can also correct a misaligned bite, improve chewing function and speech articulation, and provide internal structure for the face.
When disease, decay, or damage ruin a smile, a patient feel embarrassed about seeking professional help. NU SMILE welcomes reconstructive patients and applaud you for taking a step toward reclaiming a strong and healthy smile! You’ll feel better when you have a beautiful NU SMILE to share with the world.
