Completing Lincoln Smiles with Dental Implants

No one should have a smile that causes discomfort. If you’re missing a tooth, or several teeth, not only can speaking and chewing become difficult, you could be compromising your oral health in more ways that you think. Remaining teeth may shift and rotate into the gap left by a missing tooth. Jawbone atrophy and gum disease may also set in causing additional tooth loss.

What are Dental Implants?

Modern dentistry gives us the ability to provide treatment and therapies that maximize our patient’s oral well-being while giving them a complete, comfortable, and aesthetically pleasing smile. Dental implants offer a stable, healthy solution to other teeth replacement options such as crown and bridgework. Placed into the jaw during a short oral surgery and topped with a handcrafted crown, dental implants look and feel just like natural teeth. Because dental implants mimic a tooth from the root up, it stops bone loss and shifting, restoring your oral health.

Implants for Denture Stabilization

Denture wearers don’t have to deal with the embarrassment of sliding, clicking, and pain. Dr. Vacek offers dental implants to secure your denture, providing a slip-free fit. A few tiny titanium posts implanted into the jaw anchor your prosthesis. Your denture or partial will simply “snap” onto the dental implant post for a beautiful, comfortable smile you’ll want to share.

Guided Dental Implant Surgery

Computer guided dental implant surgery is among the most revolutionary advancements in the dental industry. Digital impressions and a 3D imaging scan allow Dr. Vacek to precisely map out the intricate contours of your gum tissue and jaw for the most accurate placement of implants possible. This state-of-the-art technology gives Dr. Vacek an exceptionally detailed view of the interior components of the jaw bone, ensuring unparalleled patient comfort and ultimate success of the implant. Another advantage supplied by guided implant surgery is the factor of convenience: due to the nature of the procedure and the technology, surgery is minimally invasive and recovery is typically quick and uneventful.
