When we see patients with missing teeth, we want to help by replacing these lost teeth. To ensure lifelike results, and a new smile that can last for decades, possibly a lifetime, we use high-quality materials. Which is why your Santa Rosa and Rohnert Park, CA, oral surgeons will use Straumann® Dental Implants.
The Dangers of Tooth Loss
When you lose your natural teeth, even if you lose only one, you should let us know right away. The body will respond to the missing root by diverting the flow of calcium and phosphates away from the jaw around the lost tooth. Without these nutrients, the bone begins to break down, losing mass and density. This means further tooth loss and for some, a prematurely aged appearance! But with implant dentistry using advanced Straumann® materials, we can offer new teeth that help strengthen the smile!
The Straumann® System
The goal of Straumann® is to make sure that quality tooth replacement isn’t prohibitively expensive, without sacrificing quality. They use high quality titanium to create the implant posts, which ensures it can bond with the jaw due to its biocompatible nature. They also have digital imaging systems to plan and implement placement at the right angles and positions to protect and strengthen the jaw. As a result, the new teeth will act like natural ones and protect the smile from further tooth loss. Quality materials, stunning and long-lasting results, and all within your budget!
How do we replace your missing teeth? To begin, we will examine your smile with digital imaging software and then plan the treatment, inserting the post at the right angle to support the new tooth and stimulate the growth of jawbone tissue. When the area heals, we will connect an abutment to the post that extends above the gum line. The custom crown, which is designed to look natural, blend with the smile, and absorb daily bite forces, will be connected to the abutment. For those receiving implant dentures, we can often insert the posts and connect the prosthetic in the same visit. Whether you have one missing tooth or several, we can use dance technology and quality materials to address these gaps and rebuild your smile. If you have any questions about how we treat tooth loss and restore the smile, then contact our team today to learn more. A full and stunning smile is always possible, and we’re here to help!
