Carthage Dental Implants Transform Oral Health and Beauty

Tooth loss can have devastating consequences for a patient’s oral health, self-confidence, and quality of life. Today, multiple options for replacement are available, but none that are as transformative or as revitalizing as dental implants. By actually rebuilding the entire structure of the tooth instead of just the visible portion (the crown), patients bolster their oral health while achieving a virtually seamless improvement to their smile. Contact Watertown Dental Health Group today to schedule a visit with our accomplished doctors and team members. We are located in Watertown, NY for your convenience.

The Dental Implant Process

After determining whether you’re the right candidate for dental implants, your procedure will start with their surgical placement into the jawbone. Implants take the place of the natural “root” in this way, stimulating the natural tissue and providing much-needed support. Patients will then need to undergo a period of healing during which the implants become bonded with these structures, creating a solid foundation for your eventual restoration(s).

Dental Implant Restorations

When restoring a single implant, a quality, all-ceramic crown is the best option. It allows our team to seamlessly rebuild the missing tooth without causing patients to sacrifice the structure of healthy teeth in the process. However, this option can become costly when multiple teeth are in need of restoration. In that case, our team will typically recommend an implant-retained denture.

Implant-Retained Dentures

Implant-retained dentures are similar in appearance to the traditional model, with one important difference – they’re designed to fit over a number of implants, restoring several teeth at once in a sturdy and confident fashion. These prosthetics are custom-designed for your unique smile, and they can be fixed or removable, depending on the patient’s level of oral health and personal preferences.
