Dental Implants Greensboro, NC

Dental implants have revolutionized the field of prosthodontics and restorative dentistry!

If you are in need of a single tooth replacement, or if you are replacing multiple teeth, then implant surgery may be the ideal solution for you! Thanks to advancements in technology and techniques, dental implants can be used to support a single crown, a partial bridge, or even a full-arch restoration.

Replace Missing Teeth in Greensboro NC

At Phillips Prosthodontics, we specialize in implant restorations because we want our patients to have the best possible care.

What Are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is a surgical procedure in which a small threaded post is placed surgically (usually by an oral surgeon or periodontist) in the jaw to replace the root of a natural tooth. Implants are available in either titanium metal, or a non-metal ceramic material.

Dental Implant Process

Once your replacement tooth is placed, the jawbone will heal and then fuse to secure the threads of the implant through a process known in dentistry as osseointegration.

This natural healing process allows the implant to be held firmly and permanently in the jawbone. Once stabilized, this connection will be strong and secure, like a tooth root, to allow the implant to support a dental prosthetic including a dental crown, bridge, or denture.

With the implant firm, the prosthodontic portion of your treatment can resume.

Dental Implants Look and Feel Like Your Natural Teeth

Completion of your restoration may involve multiple steps including finalizing the design, implant impression, and implant placement, of individual implants for the final restoration.

The exact treatment sequence varies based on the individual circumstance. We will help you understand the process and timing involved for your particular treatment.

It is important for patients to continue to maintain good oral hygiene, whether you have one artificial tooth or several.

Am I A Candidate For Dental Implant Surgery?

If you are in good oral and overall health, you should qualify for implant treatment. If you have experienced significant bone deterioration due to tooth loss, you may need a bone graft first.

During your consultation, our specialist will be able to determine if implants are right for you. This usually involves a series of diagnostic tests that may include digital x-rays and CBCT scans.

Why A Bone Graft May Be Recommended

The implants that fuse successfully to a jawbone must have an optimum bone density to function. During periods of severe dental decay, we may require that a grafting procedure be performed for your teeth grafting before dental implants are implanted. Bone grafting can improve the structure and growth of the jaw bone to ensure the successful placement of the implants.

Types Of Dental Implants

The number of missing teeth, the health of other teeth in your jawbone, and the location of the restoration will dictate the type of implant restoration you can receive. During your initial consultation, prosthodontists will be able to determine which restoration is right for you. Types of implant restorations include:

Single Tooth Implant

An implant-supported crown is an excellent way to replace a single missing tooth and is an excellent alternative to a traditional bridge or 'flipper'. Replacing a single missing tooth with an implant is the healthier option for the supporting bone and the neighboring teeth. Single implants reestablish connection with the bone and don’t rely on neighboring teeth for support.

Multiple Tooth Implant

We can replace [multiple missing teeth with the use of healthy teeth or dental implants, or a mix of both, to stabilize a dental bridge.

Full-Arch Restoration

If you are missing all or most of your teeth, we typically recommend a full-arch restoration. This means the placement of a full denture that can be retained using an implant system. There are multiple options to implant-supported dentures including:
•  Implant Supported Dentures
•  All on X
•  Conus Prosthesis

Benefits Of Dental Implant Restoration

Implant-supported restorations have several benefits over more traditional treatment options. Some of these benefits include:
•  Durability: Implant-supported restorations are perhaps the most durable tooth replacement option now available. With the proper care and maintenance, your implant could even last a lifetime.
•  Convenience: Many implant-supported restorations can be maintained similar to your natural teeth, with regular brushing, flossing, and professional checkups. Other appliances may require special cleaning techniques. Implant supported devices come with both removable and permanent options depending on your medical or simply preferred needs.
•  Aesthetics: We use the finest restorative materials available in dentistry today, assuring your restoration will blend with your natural teeth. Besides the look of your new teeth, implant retained devices help your bone stay robust, keeping your facial shape more youthful looking.
•  Comforty: Because the implant supports the restoration, discomfort or irritation to the gums can be reduced or eliminated.
•  Long Term Oral Health: Implant restorations are not attached to adjacent teeth so long-term negative effects on these teeth can be minimized. Implants also help stimulate the supporting bone helping reduce bone loss over time. Dental implants are more than just a restoration, they are a reconstruction of your natural system. By rebuilding, we are helping you have a healthier mouth.
•  Success Rate: Implant procedures have a super high success rate of 95 to 98 percent. This is the highest of any other type of restoration. As long as you qualify for treatment and follow our guidelines, your implant restoration should be a success!
