Dental implants have revolutionized the field of restorative dentistry by offering unmatched strength and durability to restorations. Instead of relying on a removable "flipper" prostheses to replace gaps in your smile, Dr. Clark Damon can provide you with implants to secure single unit crowns, bridges, and dentures that look and function like natural teeth. Dental implants are small biocompatible titanium posts that take the place of missing tooth roots. Once healed, implants integrate with the jawbone and help to provide a lifetime of support for dental restorations. Click the link to find out how implant dentistry can help you!
One procedure in One Day! The All on Four is a graft-less solution to full arch tooth replacement. It is also the simplest method and most predictable - minimizing discomfort and recovery time. With this technique, Dr. Damon will strategically place four implants to support a full arch restoration. Additionally, patients who were precluded from receiving a traditional implant-supported denture because of insufficient bone density may qualify for All-on-4® implants.
Trefoil Implant Concept is a revolutionary concept that aims to replace "Snap on Implant Dentures". With Trefoil Implants we are able to utilize 3 implants and secure a permanent non-removable prosthesis. We are then able to deliver your final teeth with in 1 week of surgery. Having less dental appointments results in a treatment fee for Trefoil to be much lower then the All on Four.
Implant Supported Dentures also known as Snap on Dentures give patients increased bite force, increased security, and increased stability. With as little as 2 implants on the lower jaw we can give you these great benefits. These are a simple process where we attach a metal reinforced denture to snaps that engage 2 abutments that sit on your 2 implants. A more simple treatment with big benefits.
When compared to traditional restorative treatments, dental implants can offer significant advantages to both the aesthetics and health of your smile. With Implant dentistry, Implant-supported restorations are attached to a surgically placed post, offering patients superior comfort and support so they can eat and speak with full confidence. Patients with implants will not have as many diet restrictions or have to worry about their restorations slipping out of place. Finally, dental implants are the only restorative treatment that can prevent the jawbone atrophy that naturally occurs after tooth loss.
Even if you are only missing one tooth, it can negatively affect your appearance and oral function. Missing teeth can cause drifting of other teeth, resulting in a collapsed bite or poor oral esthetics. Also, single tooth implants are a far more superior restoration to a traditional 3 unit bridge that is attached to adjacent teeth. We can conservatively replace 1 tooth with 1 implant versus drilling on 2 otherwise healthy teeth. Single-tooth implants offer patients with sufficient jawbone density a lasting and effective solution. At Texas Denture Clinic and Implant Center, Dr. Damon can place a single implant post to improve oral health and provide permanent support for a dental crown.
Mini dental implants may offer you an effective alternative to traditional "root bound" implants for a select few patients. Mini dental implants have a much smaller diameter than traditional types. Mini implants can be appropriate for elderly patients. Receiving these smaller implants also costs less than traditional implant surgery. There are some significant drawbacks to mini dental implants and Dr. Damon will discuss the long term expectations at your consultation.
