Restorative Dentistry Warsaw
If you are missing one or more of your natural teeth, dental implants offer a potentially ideal solution. Dental implants are tiny titanium posts that mimic the tooth's natural root and provide durable, stable support for crowns, bridges, and dentures. During a simple surgical procedure, a post is embedded in the jaw bone and topped with a temporary prosthetic. After the post fuses with the bone through a process called osseointegration, dental implants are topped with a natural-looking restoration such as a dental crown. Dr. Stofer specializes in the placement of dental implants, and a consultation can determine whether you are a suitable candidate for this procedure.
Dental crowns may be used to fully encapsulate and protect the healthy portion of a weakened, cracked, infected, or aesthetically flawed tooth. Crowns can be affixed on top of a natural tooth or attached to dental implants to replace missing teeth. Dental Solutions' in-office milling machine, CEREC®, allows for the same-day creation and placement of beautiful dental crowns. These beautiful restorations can last many years with proper hygienic care, restoring beauty and functionality to your smile.
A dental bridge may be a solution for you if you have gaps in your smile resulting from the loss of one or more teeth. Also called a partial denture, a dental bridge fills in these gaps with beautiful, porcelain replacements and restores oral function. A traditional removable dental bridge attaches to nearby teeth restored with dental crowns, or you can have a fixed bridge cemented into place for added security. An increasingly popular option is a dental bridge retained by dental implants, which offer strong, supportive roots for your replacement teeth.
If you have a tooth compromised by damage or decay, a tooth-colored filling can restore the integrity of your smile. A filling is made from composite that is color-matched to blend seamlessly into your smile. As a result, this restoration not only strengthens your tooth but enhances its appearance.
Many patients who could benefit from dental implants do not qualify because of significant jawbone recession. However, with a bone grafting procedure, Dr. Stofer can boost your candidacy for dental implants.
