Dental technologies have advanced rapidly over the past several years, particularly in restorative care. Patients with missing teeth have traditionally been treated with dentures or bridges that require daily maintenance. Dental implants offer patients a permanent solution with results that look and feel natural.
Dr. Kumar has received extensive training in dental implantology. During the procedure, a small titanium post is surgically inserted into the jawbone, where it serves as the “root” of the missing tooth. A temporary crown is placed over the implant area and once the post fuses with the bone, usually within 3 to 6 months, a custom-designed crown is placed on the implant. Dental implants are designed to mimic your natural tooth and root and do not require any special care beyond your daily routine of flossing and brushing.
Implant Supported Bridge
Dental implants offer a permanent solution for missing teeth. The implants look and feel like your natural teeth and can be used for anchored dental procedures, such as an implant-supported bridge. The implant, composed of a small titanium post, will be surgically placed in the area of the missing tooth. Once this fuses with your jawbone, Dr. Kumar will place a custom-made, permanent crown on the post. The implant will then serve as support for your bridge.
Implant Supported Denture
Patients who have dentures sometimes find that denture adhesives are unreliable and messy. Wickham Dental Care offers implant-supported dentures, also known as anchored dentures, to provide a more stable support for your dentures. This procedure eliminates problems such as shifting and will provide you with a more comfortable fit; enhancing your ability to chew and speak.
