Implant-Retained Crown & Bridge – Orlando, FL
Replace Multiple Missing Teeth with Dental Implants
It is estimated 120 million Americans are missing at least one tooth. If you are among those who have 1 or more consecutive missing teeth, you can enjoy a solution that closely looks and feels natural. As an alternative to a traditional bridge, you can complete your smile with dental implants in Orlando. Dr. John E. Russo creates the customized treatment plan you need to replace your missing teeth.
What are Dental Implants?
Over 500,000 people a year are now choosing dental implants to replace their missing teeth. A titanium implant post is surgically placed into your jawbone to act as a new tooth root. Your crown or bridge is anchored to your jaw by placing an abutment on the posts. This allows you to enjoy the next best thing to your natural teeth using a treatment that offers over a 95% success rate.
Options to Replace Missing Teeth
Generally, if you have good oral and general health, you are a candidate for dental implants; however, Dr. Russo needs to perform a consultation to ensure they are right for you. He takes digital x-rays and a CT scan to assess your oral structures and to determine the best placement of your implant posts. Depending on how many teeth you are replacing, your treatment process varies slightly.
A single tooth is replaced by surgically inserting an implant post into your jawbone. An abutment is connected to it to attach a custom-made crown that is designed to match the appearance of your remaining teeth.
Multiple Missing Teeth
Several missing teeth in a row are treated using a bridge that is created to fill the empty space. Instead of placing dental crowns on the adjacent teeth to hold it in place, an average of 1 to 2 implant posts anchors it to your jawbone.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants are different from any other prosthetic because they replace both the root and the crown of the tooth. This allows you to enjoy several benefits that are not possible with a traditional fixed bridge.
- Over a 95% success rate.
- All-ceramic material allows it to look natural.
- Enjoy added stability as your jawbone fuses to the posts.
- Regain as much as 70% of your biting force.
- Does not alter healthy teeth.
- Preserves the density of your jawbone.
- Protects your facial structures.
- Stops dental drift.
- Reduces the risk of gum disease, tooth decay, and additional tooth loss.
- Potential to last for several decades for a long-term solution.
- Cost-effective because it never needs to be replaced.
Cost of Dental Implants
An implant-retained bridge is more affordable long-term because it has the potential to last forever. There is no set amount you can expect to pay because the cost of your treatment is based on your individual needs. During your consultation, we provide you with an estimate and discuss your options to keep your new smile affordable, such as using your dental insurance and CareCredit.
