Dental Implant Restorations Treatment
Dr. Lois Lagier collaborates with specialists in the area to have your implant posts placed. Made of biocompatible titanium, these posts are integrated within the jaw bone and provide a stable foundation for custom restorations.
Our Monterey dentist will recommend dental implants as a means to stabilize dentures and replace missing teeth in the smile --- whether they’ve been extracted due to trauma or decay. Once you’ve decided that implants are your chosen treatment, we refer you to a trusted periodontist or oral surgeon in the area to have them placed. After a short healing period, you return to our practice to have your custom restorations placed --- completing implant treatment.
Custom Restorations to Replace Missing Teeth
The number of missing teeth will determine the type of restoration and amount of implants placed in the smile. Consult Dr. Lagier as well as your referred implant placement specialist for the best choice in selecting the number of implant posts. Our Monterey practice provides various implant restoration options such as:
Single-Unit Dental Implants
For patients with a single tooth missing, we provide single-unit dental implants topped with porcelain crowns as replacements. Created using aesthetic materials, this implant restoration replaces the visible top of the tooth and is supported by implant posts, completing the tooth replacement.
For patients missing one or multiple teeth in their smile, porcelain bridges affixed to dental implants are the recommended treatment option. Unlike traditional dental bridges which utilize neighboring healthy teeth as support, implant-supported bridges rely entirely on the post. This implant restoration is effective at replacing ill-fitting partial dentures.
Removable dentures require adjustment over time, suction, and adhesives to adhere to the jaw, which can cause discomfort. Missing teeth can lead to an aged look due to the jaw bone lacking the support the tooth roots provided. Implant-supported dentures replace both the tooth root as well as the crown entirely. We provide bar-retained implant-supported dentures allow patients to snap the prosthetics on and off with ease.
