Implant-Supported Restorations

Implant-supported restorationsHow Do Implant-supported Restorations Work? Nashville Center for Aesthetic Dentistry – Dr. Dennis Wells at 105 Powell Ct Ste 101 Nashville, TN 37027, is happy to spend time with you to discuss how these restorations work, and if you are a good candidate for them.

The primary function of implant-supported dentures or bridges is much the same as traditional implants. First, a titanium implant is surgically screwed in the jawbone and allowed to fuse with the surrounding bone, to serve as an artificial tooth root. What makes the implant-supported full-arch special is the fact that a relatively small number of implants are required to support the replacement of all 16 teeth in the arch.

Therefore, you can get the same sort of aesthetic and strength as in traditional implants for a fraction of the cost on a too-by-tooth basis. A big difference is a manner in which full arch implants are placed. In the case of All-on-4 variety, two anterior implants are placed near the front of the mouth, and two posterior implants are placed farther behind. The anterior is inserted in a traditional, straight manner, whereas the posteriors are tilted at a 45-degree angle. The reason for this is to avoid the need for a bone graft. Such grafts are relatively common if the patient does not have enough bone density to support an implant. The angled posterior placement of All-on-4 and other implant-supported full arch restorations, therefore, helps simplify the procedure and reduce costs by taking bone grafts out of the equation.

Am I a Candidate? If you’re in need of mouth reconstruction, then an implant-supported dental solution like All-in-4 or Teeth Tomorrow could be the perfect solution. In order to determine whether you are a candidate, you need to schedule a consultation with a dentist that has experience performing implant-supported procedures. If you already wear removable dentures, you may have experienced bone or gum loss that must first be addressed before a transition to a fixed implant-supported solution. Your dentist will conduct a thorough evaluation to determine whether an implant-supported solution is right for you, or whether you may benefit from another restorative solution.
