If you are missing any teeth in the mouth, you should consider dental implants. Implants allow you to replace missing teeth and restore your smile as well as your bite. At El Paso Periodontics and Implant Specialists your board certified specialist is able to help you via several ways to overcome some common issues that may render implants unsuccessful.
Bone augmentation: Bone augmentation may be used by your periodontist to restore or regenerate bone that has been lost due to trauma, or infection or the physiologic bone loss following tooth extraction.
Sinus floor elevation: Sinus lift procedures are used to add bone to the area of the sinus where natural bone has started to deteriorate. This can be caused by being teeth-less in the upper back part of the mouth.
Alternative Dental Implants
There are several types of dental implants available to patients. These include immediately placed and loaded implants, all-on -4 dental implants, ceramic dental implants and many more options.
Immediately Placed and Loaded Dental Implants
These implants are commonly referred to as same-day implants. They allow patients to have temporary teeth placed in the mouth as soon as dental implants are placed right after the tooth extraction. Patients that have enough natural bone remaining in the mouth may qualify for these implants.
Ceramic Dental Implants
Implant rehabilitation can greatly improve the oral health and quality of life for patients who are missing one or more teeth. At El Paso Periodontics and Implant Specialists we offer both state-of-the-art titanium and ceramic implants. Ceramic implants are a holistic alternative to traditional metal implants, and are commonly used by periodontists throughout the United States and Europe. Currently, El Paso Periodontics and Implant Specialists is the only place in El Paso that provides the treatment with ceramic dental implants.
It is important to understand which type of implant is best for you.
