Learn More About Dental Implants Offered by Dr. Plasch
Thanks to modern methods of teeth replacement, missing your natural teeth is an oral health problem you can easily recover from. While teeth can be knocked out in an accident or extracted because of extensive decay and disease, they can also be replaced with long-lasting dental implants. At the dental office of Dr. Plasch we place and restore implants.
Dental Implants: An Investment in Your Oral Health
Implants provide benefits that alternative teeth replacement options cannot offer, including:
• Longevity - Implants act as artificial tooth roots and are surgically placed into bone in the jaw, where roots of teeth formerly existed. With implant-supported teeth, there is no need to apply prosthetics with messy adhesives each morning, or deal with loose dentures. With proper care, implants can last a very long time.
• Greatly Improved Oral Function - Removable teeth can make it hard to eat certain foods, which can have unexpected drawbacks for your overall health. Because implants are permanent and strong, you can bite and chew as you would with your own teeth.
• Life-Like Fit and Feel - Prosthetics like full dentures can block the palate or slip out of place during daily use. However, with dental implants from our Hayward dentist, your new teeth can look and feel just like natural teeth.
Replacement teeth supported by dental implants do not decay or need root canals. With proper care, implants can last a lifetime and remain healthy and strong, with minimal maintenance, compared to bridges and dentures.
Improving your Smile with Implant Dentistry
Implants work to replace any number of missing teeth, including sporadic loss of single teeth, groups of missing teeth, and full arches that contain no natural teeth. Dr. Plasch will help you find the right implant solution for your needs, with treatments like implant-supported dentures -- both screw-retained and clip-on -- implant bridges, and single implant crowns.
For patients with diminished bone density, Dr. Plasch also provides mini dental implants. Because these implants are smaller, they require less bone volume for successful placement, potentially preventing the need for a bone graft in some patients. Through the versatility of dental implants, you can find a secure, long-lasting replacement for traditional dentures, or replace small groups of missing teeth without altering healthy teeth and oral structures.
Dr. Plasch Places and Restores Implants
For patients in good oral health, Dr. Plasch is able to place dental implants in his own office. Other patients who need more comprehensive treatment are provided care from our local specialists, either an oral surgeon or a periodontist. We work closely with specialists to act as one cohesive unit for implant care. Our whole implant team ensures that you receive the care you deserve.
The restorations we place on top of your implants (crowns, dentures, and bridges) can be all-porcelain, zirconia, or metal-based, depending on your bite alignment and health, as well as your aesthetic goals. Dr. Plasch and his specialists make sure your new smile is beautiful and durable.
