Modern Dental Implants in Rock Hill
Ideally, the team at Coombs & Ross Family Dentistry would love to help every patient maintain a full set of strong, healthy teeth for life – but we understand that this isn’t always possible. When recommending a replacement for adults in need, dental implants are right at the top of the list for several reasons. They replicate every part of the natural tooth’s structure, providing valuable oral health benefits and aesthetic value. They’re also exceptionally long-lasting and can work as intended for decades or even longer. Contact our Rock Hill, SC location today if you’re interested in learning more, or if you’re ready to schedule a visit.
Implant-Retained Crowns & Bridges
Implants are surgically placed into the jawbone so that they can function as new tooth roots. After they’re in place, patients will need to undergo a period of healing in most cases that last months. Once this is complete, it will be time for you to visit Coombs & Ross Family Dentistry so that we can design and place the ideal restoration over them, completing your improved smile.
There are several choices for implant restorations. Crowns, for instance, can be used to cover individual implants, providing a seamless appearance without threatening the health of surrounding teeth. If you’re missing multiple teeth that appear in a row, we may be able to rebuild the lost structure through an implant-retained bridge. During this process, two implants will be placed on either side of the gap that we can use to anchor the new restoration securely in place.
If your tooth loss is more significant, implant-retained dentures can rebuild your complete smile in a cost-effective fashion. This prosthetic will be anchored over a small number of strategically placed implants instead of one per tooth. Patients can either be fitted for hybrid dentures, which are permanently fixed and cannot be removed from the mouth, or removable overdentures that combine the convenience of traditional prosthetics with the health benefits of implants.
All-on-4 / Teeth-in-a-Day
All-On-4 is a specific type of implant-retained denture that is designed to replace an entire arch of natural teeth. Just like the name suggests, four implants are placed at angles in the jawbone so that they can provide optimal support to the denture. Better yet, in many cases, our team can have your new prosthetic ready so that it can be placed in your mouth immediately after the implants are, making them true teeth in a day!
