Replace Lost Teeth and Restore Your Smile with Dental Implants
Replacing lost teeth is important both for how your smile looks and how it functions in everyday life. Not only are missing teeth a source of embarrassment for many patients, lacking natural teeth in large numbers means that diet and food digestion are negatively affected.
Through dental implants in Albuquerque with Dr. Sarah Kassam, patients enjoy rejuvenated smiles that are both pleasing to the eye and offer the renewed strength and durability needed to feel healthy again. Dental implants are unparalleled in their ability to do all of these things, with a high rate of success.
The Dental Implant Treatment Process
If you have chosen implants for your teeth replacement needs, you can expect your care to be completed in three main phases: treatment planning, implant surgery, and implant restoration. To start this treatment,
Dr. Schlesinger provides a consultation and evaluates your smile to determine if you are a candidate for implants and if jaw bone is healthy enough to support implantation. After this step has been completed, Dr. Schlesinger places the implants.
Your implant placement surgery, the process by which replacement tooth roots are added to jaw arches, is completed with our dental specialists for optimal results. The implant placement experience is quick and comfortable.
Single and Multiple Tooth Replacement with Implants in Albuquerque
Once your implants are in place and tissues have healed, permanent prosthetics can be added to create your new, healthy smile. While other restorations like removable dentures or even cemented dental bridges can also replace teeth, implants offer the benefits of protecting healthy teeth and do not irritate or damage gum tissue. Dr. Kassam provides the following restorative implant services:
Crowns – With a crown attached to an implant post, existing teeth in your smile do not have to be altered to fill the gap, as placing non-implant restorations might.
Bridges – When several teeth in a group are missing from your smile, as few as two dental implants can be provided to anchor a multiple unit dental prosthetic. Implant bridges are long lasting, stable, and do not present the challenges that a traditional dental bridge might, such as shaving down healthy teeth.
Dentures – Removable dentures are economical but can create many problems for everyday oral function, such as rubbing and slipping on soft tissue. But when your dentures are held in place by implants, your smile looks more like your own and your replacement teeth are strong enough feel like your natural teeth as well.
Our implant restorations are provided with longevity and aesthetic in mind and can be created from a combination of materials, including porcelain and metal. With digital technology in our office and at our oral surgeon’s locations, we can minimize the amount of time it takes to plan your treatment and deliver final restorations.
