An Implant Solution For Every Patient
Did you know that over 178 million Americans face the challenge of tooth loss (edentulism)? It’s a widespread concern, but the journey to restoring your smile is as unique as you are. If you’re seeking tailored implant solutions in Rancho Cucamonga, your search ends here.
At Renaissance Dental Care, Dr. Jay Stockdale brings a wealth of experience and provides dental implant options to address your oral health needs. Let’s explore our comprehensive guide to discover the perfect dental implant solution for you.
Our Dental Implant Solutions at Renaissance Dental Care
Single Tooth Restoration
If you’re missing one or a few teeth scattered across your smile, Dr. Stockdale recommends a single implant topped with a porcelain crown restoration. This customized crown seamlessly blends with your natural teeth and is installed through a minimally invasive surgical procedure.
Multiple Tooth Restoration
For patients with adjacent missing teeth, Dr. Stockdale recommends an implant-supported bridge. This innovative solution restores several teeth in a row, supported by implants at both ends. Unlike traditional bridges, this method bypasses the need to alter healthy adjacent teeth, reducing the risk of complications such as infection or decay.
All-on-4 Full Arch Restoration
For patients who are missing most or all of their teeth, Dr. Stockdale recommends full arch restoration with an All-on-4® treatment. This transformative approach replaces an entire arch of teeth with a permanent denture supported by only four implants. All-on-4 makes efficient use of your existing jawbone structure, eliminating the need for supplemental procedures like bone grafting and sinus lifts.
The Benefits of Implant Solutions
When you look at the pros and cons of each restorative option, dental implants offer the most benefits, including the following:
- Osseointegration: Implants fuse seamlessly with the jawbone, preventing issues like jawbone deterioration and gum disease.
- Natural Look and Feel: Our restorations are meticulously crafted to mimic the look, feel, and function of your original teeth.
- Time and Cost Efficiency: For those with significant tooth loss, implant solutions can save considerable time and money, often requiring only a few office visits.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why is an implant better than a bridge to replace a single tooth?
While a dental bridge may seem convenient initially, the long-term benefits of implants make them the superior choice. They’re permanent, preventing the inconvenience of replacements every seven to 10 years, ultimately proving more cost-effective.
What are the benefits of dental implants compared to dentures?
Dental implants offer a permanent, natural-looking solution that prevents jaw bone loss. They eliminate the need for messy adhesives and the discomfort of ill-fitting dentures.
However, you can have the best of both restorations with implant-supported dentures. Your implant dentist can affix a complete arch of dentures to your dental implants for a stunning, permanent finish.
Is it better to replace multiple missing teeth with several single tooth implants?
For a connected section of missing teeth, an implant-supported partial bridge or full arch restoration is often more reliable and less invasive than multiple single-tooth implants. Your implant dentist will evaluate your oral health and determine what will be best for your situation.
Am I too old for dental implant restorations?
You’re never too old to replace missing teeth with dental implant restorations. As long as you maintain good oral health and sufficient jawbone density, you’re a candidate for dental implants. Procedures are available to augment bone density if needed.
