Making Dental Implants easy!
Dr. Damon has great experience and success with placing and restoring from Single Unit Implants
to advanced All-on-4® procedures for Amarillo area patients.
One procedure in One Day! The All-on-4® is a graft-less solution to full arch tooth replacement. It is also the simplest method and most predictable – minimizing discomfort and recovery time. Using this technique, Dr. Damon will strategically place four implants to support a full arch restoration. Patients who were precluded from receiving a traditional implant-supported denture because of insufficient bone density may qualify for All-on-4® implants.
Dental implants have revolutionized the field of restorative dentistry by offering unmatched strength and durability to restorations. Instead of using a removable “flipper” prostheses to replace gaps in your smile, Dr. Clark Damon provides implants to secure single unit crowns, bridges, and dentures that look and function like natural teeth. Dental implants are small biocompatible titanium posts that replace missing tooth roots. Once healed, implants integrate with the jawbone and provides a lifetime of support for dental restorations.
Benefits of Dental Implants
When compared to traditional restorative treatments, dental implants offer significant advantages to both the aesthetics and health of your smile. 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 dental implants do not have as many diet restrictions nor do they have to worry about their restorations slipping out of place. Dental implants are the only restorative treatment that can prevent jawbone atrophy that naturally occurs after tooth loss.
Single Tooth Implants
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. Single tooth implants are a far more superior restoration to a traditional 3-unit bridge that is attached to adjacent teeth. Amarillo Denture Clinic will replace one tooth with one implant versus drilling on two healthy teeth. Single-tooth implants offer patients with sufficient jawbone density a lasting and effective solution. Dr. Damon will place a single implant post to improve oral health and provide permanent support for a dental crown.
Mini Dental Implants
Mini dental implants provide an effective alternative to traditional root bound implants as they have a smaller diameter than traditional dental implants. Mini implants are often a good selection for elderly patients, plus they cost less than traditional implant surgery. Dr. Damon will consult with each patient to discuss drawbacks and positives to mini dental implants.
