Single and Multiple Implant Restorations - Lost Tooth Replacement in Fresno, CA
Crowns, bridges, and dentures are all traditional, proven restorations that help patients restore their smile. When used with dental implants, however, they become part of the most effective replacements for lost teeth. Kathryn A. Siemens, D.D.S., Inc. provides dental implant restorations in Northwest Fresno, Northeast Fresno, Clovis, Old Fig Garden, and the surrounding communities.
Treatment Planning with Specialists
The dental implant is composed of three parts: the implant post, the implant restoration, and the abutment which connects the two. While the restoration is the visible portion of the tooth, the post serves as a new anchor that grants the dental implant a strength similar to that of a healthy, natural tooth. In order for Dr. Siemens to successfully add the restoration, the implant post has to be carefully placed into the jaw.
Kathryn A. Siemens, D.D.S., Inc. works closely with a trusted group of specialists in order to plan out the entire dental implant treatment process. After examining your smile and taking all necessary images, Dr. Siemens will confer with the specific periodontist or oral surgeon placing your implants. Together, they determine the placement of your implant posts and how our Fresno dental practice should have the restoration fabricated. Performing our individual steps in close concert helps ensure your satisfaction with the successful placement of your dental implants.
Adding the Restoration
While the specialist and Dr. Siemens monitor your progress after having the implant posts placed, our dentist in Fresno will also fabricate your dental implant restoration to your specifications. The prosthetics used to restore your smile are made in consideration of how many teeth must be replaced and how many implants have been placed. Once the implant posts have integrated into the jaw bone and become the inseparable tooth roots you need, the restoration is placed on top of them, leaving you with a new set of teeth.
Implant-supported dentures, crowns, and bridges represent your smile and allow you to chew food. As such, the material used to make the dental implant restoration must serve both your aesthetic concerns and functional needs. For crowns and bridges, we use porcelain to create a single or multiple realistic teeth, respectively, that are sturdy and blend into your restored smile. Just like their traditional counterparts, the dentures are made from a combination of metal and acrylic that mimics a natural, healthy smile and is durable enough to last a lifetime.
