Restoring a patient's smile is important to us at Vanguard Dental. We are well aware of the
impact a smile can have on the personal and business aspects of a patient's life. Thanks to
restorative dentistry, we can offer restorations such as dental implants to improve a patient's
smile. Dentures can utilize dental implants to stabilize them and keep them in place.
Families from Wilbraham, Hampden, Springfield, Ludlow, East Longmeadow, Longmeadow, Chicopee,
Belchertown, and Monson will be delighted to know that their local private-practice dentist at
Vanguard Dental provides dental implants and implant-supported dentures.
Implants Diagnosis What is an Implant?
Dental implants are used in one of two ways. They can be used to replace a missing tooth, or to provide
implant-supported dentures. Both require a dental implant to be placed in the jawbone. The implants are
made of titanium, which is biocompatible with the body. It resists infection and corrosion, and is the best possible material for bone implantation. This implant is surgically placed into the jawbone and given a healing period of several months. During this time, osseointegration occurs, a process in which the bone grows around the implant to hold it in place. This gives the implant the same strength and support as a natural tooth.
When a patient is replacing a missing tooth with a dental implant, we will fabricate a porcelain crown that is attached to the implant and acts as a replacement tooth. For patients who are using implant-supported dentures, their dentures are fabricated to work in conjunction with the implant. Patients snap their dentures into place over the dental implants, giving them the most strength and support they can get from a dental restoration. This is the ideal solution for anyone who has struggled with ill-fitting dentures.
Vanguard Dental offers a variety of restorative and cosmetic procedures for its patients to address dental concerns. From dental implants to dentures, there are many options available for those who want to restore missing natural teeth. Bringing a patient's smile back to its original beauty is rewarding for all of us at Vanguard Dental. We are well aware of the effect it has on the patient's confidence and self-esteem. Business and personal relationships will benefit from cosmetic procedures that can address spaces between the teeth.
