Replace Missing Teeth in Antelope, CA
Michael Narodovich, DMD understands the value of replacing lost teeth. His practice helps patients receive dental implants, one of the most effective and durable ways to restore your smile after teeth have been lost. Sacramento Dental Medicine provides dental implants in Antelope and the surrounding communities.
Placing Your Implants
Traditionally, dentists would refer patients to specialists to perform dental implant placement. As coordinators of your treatment plan, the general dentists create the blueprint for placement that the oral surgeon can follow.
However, our implant dentist performs placement himself, allowing you to receive all of your dental implant care in one location. Patients benefit from this more convenient care as Dr. Narodovich knows the entire context behind your treatment plan. Dr. Narodovich also utilizes precise CBCT or 3D imagining to determine where to place implants and support best results. Your diverse needs, from choosing a standard or mini implant to determining the number of implants required, can be fully met by keeping all parts of your treatment in the office.
These replacements for lost tooth roots must be able to fully integrate into the jaw to be successful. However, if you have experienced a decrease in bone volume, which is a common side effect of tooth loss, then the density of the jaw may not be enough for the post. To accommodate this need, Dr. Narodovich can also perform the preparatory bone grafting surgery if necessary in order to strengthen your jaw, before placing dental implant posts.
Adding the Restoration
While monitoring your healing after placing the posts, Dr. Narodovich has your dental implant restoration fabricated. This prosthetic replaces one or more missing teeth effectively and comfortably. Because these new teeth must stand up to daily use and blend in visually with the rest of your smile, several of these restorations are made from zirconia; this white metal mimics the natural appearance of healthy teeth and is more durable than other esthetic dental materials.
Sacramento Dental Medicine provides a range of restorations for replacing any number of missing teeth. A single-unit crown can be placed on top of one post to restore an individual missing tooth. To restore a lost portion of an arch, partials can be secured on a continuous row of implants. If a full arch needs replacement, you have a choice of hybrid dentures made of zirconia or implant-supported overdentures.
