Dental Health Group of Chagrin for Dental Implants in Chagrin Falls
Christopher Carson provides high quality, dental implants in Chagrin Falls and Beachwood for patients who want to replace their missing teeth. This advanced treatment method has been proven to deliver the next best thing to your natural teeth and at Dental Health Group of Chagrin, our entire team is committed to meeting the unique needs of our individual patients.
Dental Implants Replicate Missing Teeth
Dental implants are designed to replace one or more teeth from root to crown. A titanium post is placed into the jaw and allowed to integrate with the bone. Once the post is stable, Dr. Carson attaches an abutment to secure the incoming crown or other prosthetic. Our dentist will evaluate your teeth, gums, and jawbone to determine if you require bone augmentation before the implant procedure.
Traditional and Biomet 3i Dental Implants
While there are cases that may call for traditional dental implants, Dental Health Group of Chagrin also offers DBiomet 3i implants. These incorporate a bone-bonding component allowing the post to be placed in areas with lower bone density. This can mean a faster recovery time after the implant is placed.
The length of time it takes to complete treatment will depend on your specific case, amount of missing teeth, jawbone volume, and implant option. With bone grafting, it typically takes six months for healing, at which time your prosthetic can be placed. The number of implants you receive will depend on the number of teeth you are replacing and which restoration you and Dr. Carson have decided on.
Options for Replacing Teeth in Chagrin Falls
Crowns - For single tooth replacement, crowns are supported by one implant.
Implant-Supported Bridge – Our dentist places two or more implants to support a dental bridge which can replace a short row of teeth.
Hybrid Dentures – Implant-supported partials and dentures replace up to a full arch of teeth with as little as four posts, providing excellent function and bite stability.
Overdentures – Some patients opt to have a removable denture that is retained by two implants. This can be a more affordable alternative to replacing teeth individually and prevents slippage commonly experienced with traditional dentures.
Dr. Carson prefers using porcelain for his prosthetics due to its strength, durability, and natural appearance. When your implants are ready, he will obtain new dental impressions and send them to our trusted lab. In about two weeks your new crown or multiple tooth prosthetic will be ready to complete your procedure.
Our dentist is a perfectionist when it comes to your replacement teeth and works closely with you and our lab to create the best fitting, most natural looking prosthetic.
