Replace Any Number of Missing Teeth
Dental implants are natural-looking prosthetic teeth that won’t come out when you’re talking or eating. They provide outstanding comfort and stability because they’re surgically attached to your jawbone.
Dr. Randy J. Allain has effective implant solutions to restore one or more missing teeth or even a whole arch. Our implants are custom-made just for you, matching the shape, color, and size of your natural teeth to blend in perfectly with your smile. They also help preserve your smile by stimulating natural jawbone growth, something no other restoration can do.
During your no-obligation consultation, Dr. Allain will examine your smile to find out if implants are the right solution for you. If you and Dr. Allain decide to replace your missing teeth with dental implants, we can get the process started right away.
The fixture is the part of the implant that acts like a natural tooth root. It will take a few months for the bones in your jaw to develop a firm bond with the implant fixture. Then Dr. Allain will complete the implant process by attaching the attractive porcelain crown that sparkles in the light just like a natural tooth. Single-tooth restorations can be used to restore more than one missing teeth.
Implants and Tooth Extraction
If you have a severely damaged tooth, Dr. Allain will do everything he can to save it. But sometimes extraction is the best way to maintain your oral health. If you require an extraction, Dr. Allain will go over your tooth replacement options.
As soon as you lose a tooth, the area around the empty socket begins to deteriorate through a process called resorption. Dental implants are the only restoration that counteracts resorption by promoting the production of essential jawbone tissue.
Hybrid Dentures: Getting the Best of Both Worlds
Hybrid dentures combine attractive and durable dentures with the comfort and stability of dental implants to restore a whole arch of missing teeth. Using sedation dentistry, Dr. Allain will perform all the surgical procedures needed to place your hybrid dentures in just one day. This includes any extractions that may be necessary.
Dr. Allain only needs four dental implants to give you a beautiful new smile with hybrid dentures. They’re a permanent solution to your missing teeth. And you won’t have to remove them for any reason. Hybrid dentures provide the stability to eat, speak, and smile comfortably, just like natural teeth.
