Don’t Live With Missing Teeth, The Dentists At Summit Family Dental Care Have Multiple Options For Tooth Replacement To Meet Your Needs!

 

Implants

Implants have completely revolutionized the way we restore missing teeth.  When a tooth or multiple teeth have been lost it is debilitating both for esthetics and function.  It also puts a tremendous strain on the remaining teeth which are now expected to pick up the loss in function.  Implants allow patients a permanent solution that look and feel like their natural teeth.  Dr. Erickson has been surgically placing implants for years now and all of the dentists at Summit Family Dental Care are highly skilled in the restorations of implants.

Implants Restore Individual Teeth

When a tooth has been lost we can place an implant in the site and then later connect a crown to that implant.  Here are some examples of single tooth implants that we completed here at Summit Family Dental Care.

Implants Restore Multiple Teeth (Not-Removable)

When multiple teeth have been lost adjacent to each other we have options to have something permanent or something removable.  If a permanent prosthesis is wanted we will require more implants for stability.  More implants provides more strength and stability.  This is a wonderful option for patients who are tired of their partial dentures or full dentures.  Here are some pics of some restorations that were done here when we decided to completely get rid of the patient’s dentures and do something permanent.  This kind of treatment is life-changing for our patients!

Implants Restore Multiple Teeth (Patient Can Remove Prosthesis)

Removable dentures (either full dentures or partial dentures) are not very retentive and tend to move around quite a bit.  We can improve the retention of these dentures by adding some implants.  The denture is able to be clipped to the implants making them much more stable.  Here are some examples we have done here where we have had patients wanting more stability with their dentures.
