The dentists at Prosthodontics of Princeton are happy to offer implant-supported prostheses. We believe that dental implants are the ideal solution when it comes to tooth loss.
Who is a Candidate for Dental Implants?
Patients with good oral and overall health should qualify for implant treatment. If you have experienced significant bone deterioration due to tooth loss, you may need a bone graft prior to implant placement. During your consultation and subsequent visit with the dental surgeon, we will be able to determine if implants are right for you. This usually involves a series of diagnostic tests that may include digital x-rays and CBCT scans.

Single Tooth Replacement With an Implant
If you are missing a single tooth, an implant-supported crown may be the best solution. An implant-supported crown usually consists of three components: the implant post, the abutment (support structure), and the restoration. We may recommend an implant-supported crown in place of more traditional options, such as a conventional bridge or partial denture.

Replacing Multiple Teeth
If you are missing multiple teeth, multiple implants can be used to support a larger restoration, such as a partial or complete fixed bridge. The type of restoration you receive depends on the number of missing teeth and their location. A multiple tooth restoration will improve your ability to properly chew and speak, as well as improve the aesthetics of your smile.

All-on-4® Treatment Concept
All-on-4® is a revolutionary new treatment concept developed by Nobel Biocare, the industry leader in implant solutions. All-on-4® is a complete fixed bridge that, as the name suggests, only requires a minimum of four implants per arch, instead of six to eight. To accomplish this, the posterior (back) implants are placed at an angle to maximize the support from your jawbone. All-on-4®, due to a reduced number of implants, can make the healing process faster and more comfortable.

Implant-supported bridges are highly durable as well as aesthetically pleasing making them a natural choice for most patients. Implant-supported bridges function just as your regular teeth do allowing a patient to enjoy normal daily activities like eating and drinking - just as if they had their original teeth.
Learn more about implant restorations.
An overdenture is a full-arch restoration that is often supported by dental implants. The difference between a conventional denture and an implant supported overdenture is that the overdenture has components to connect to underlying implants that help support it. An implant-supported overdenture is a great alternative to traditional dentures due to the added stability that the implants provide.
