Benefits of Restorative Dentistry
Modern restorative dentistry has the ability to improve dental health, functionality and appearance simultaneously. Today’s materials and techniques allow dentists like Dr. Snyder to restore the function and appearance of a healthy tooth conservatively, removing less tooth structure than in the past. The results look more beautiful and are stronger and longer-lasting than ever before.
Some of the most common restorative dentistry treatment plans involve replacing a missing tooth with a dental implant, replacing several teeth with partial dentures or replacing all of the teeth in the upper and/or lower jaw with complete dentures or the All-on-4 system.
Dental implants replace the entire tooth, from root to crown. An implant consists of a titanium post or screw, which is installed in the jawbone underneath the missing tooth. The post is mounted with an artificial tooth (usually a crown), which rests on top of the gumline and matches the surrounding teeth in shape, size and color.
Implants are strong, durable and very long-lasting. Because they are anchored in the jawbone, they keep the bone stimulated to prevent its deterioration and other oral health problems.
Implants require the skill of an excellent dentist. People in Ft. Oglethorpe and the surrounding areas trust dental specialist Dr. Snyder for the planning and creation of successful dental implants.
Dental implants can be used to replace groups of teeth or even an entire arch of teeth. With the All-on-4 system, Dr. Snyder can restore a full arch using four dental implant posts. Once the posts have been placed, the denture-like appliance clips to the tops of the posts and securely remains in place.
Partial and Complete Dentures
Partial and complete dentures are another excellent way to replace an entire arch of teeth. Today’s dentures are stronger, lighter and more comfortable than ever. They support natural chewing and biting function and enable clear speech.
Partial dentures can be used to replace a few teeth by attaching to the remaining natural teeth. Complete dentures replace an entire arch of teeth and are secured on top of the gums.
