Your Restoration Choices
Dr. Sielicki works with a trusted group of periodontists to help accomplish the appropriated implant restorations for you. They will oversee your implant placement and recovery, and help you choose the best restoration for your needs. There are a variety of options available to you, each of which offer unique benefits. Sonoran Dental Design can provide quality restorations from crowns to full sets of dentures. We can also help you choose the best abutments, or connector pieces, for your needs.
What is an implant abutment? It is a customized implant part that is made to hold your new implant restoration, crown, bridge or fixed denture, on to the implant. This abutment is torqued into place by a screw. There are many different designs of abutments depending on what the final restoration will be on the implant. These abutments can be made out of either titanium, and be custom milled at the implant manufacturer, or can be cast from different types of noble metal at the dental lab, or zirconia.
Porcelain and zirconia options are better able to blend with restorations, creating a more seamless smile. However, titanium connectors are extremely strong and durable. Titanium abutments are often a good choice for back teeth that sustain a great deal of pressure from chewing. Our team will work with you to select the best options for your treatment goals.
Teeth in a Day
For patients who have sufficient jawbone density, or enough bone mass to support four to six dental implants per arch, you may be a good candidate to receive a full arch of prosthetic teeth supported by implants in just one day. The implants are placed in strategic locations at angles that promote the most stability and strength. The prostheses are made of high-quality dental materials and blend in seamlessly with your smile. During a minor surgery, your implant posts will be placed in the empty space created by lost teeth. Once the implants are integrated into your jawbone, the denture can be placed on top of the posts. The implants and denture, when placed by experienced dentists such as Dr. Sielicki, can last a lifetime and offer benefits comparable to natural teeth.
Crowns, Bridges, and Dentures
To replace one missing tooth, patients will often receive a single dental implant and a specialized crown. You can receive a crown made of advanced porcelain that is highly durable and will match your surrounding teeth. If you are missing multiple consecutive teeth, you can receive an implant-supported bridge. These restorations can be made from a variety of materials and will typically be upheld by two or more implants. Dr. Sielicki can help you select the best materials to restore your smile.
If you need to replace a full dental arch, you can receive an implant-supported denture. These restorations are the best option for patients who have widespread tooth loss, providing the ultimate level of support and comfort when compared to traditional dentures.
If you would like to receive a full denture at the same time your implants are placed, we can work closely with our partner periodontist to provide a full set of teeth in a single day.
Advanced Restoration Options
Dr. Sielicki can also provide unique options for your individual restorative care needs. If you would like to receive a full denture at the same time as implant placement, we can work closely with our partner periodontist to provide a full set of teeth in a single day. We will create your custom-made temporary denture, which can be attached immediately after you receive your implants. If you require a full mouth reconstruction, we are also able to create individual plans which include multiple restorations for a variety of concerns. This will provide a strong, healthy foundation for fully restored oral health.
