Implant-Supported Prosthesis in Keller TX

Keller Implant Specialist

To smile confidently is a challenge for some people who have missing teeth. In addition to a “gap” in the smile, missing teeth can also cause skin sagging and the formation of folds and wrinkles. We offer innovative treatment options to help you deal with the consequences of losing a single tooth or multiple teeth. We will recommend the type of prosthesis that will work best for your individual situation. 

Dental implant prostheses are essentially replacement teeth that are attached to or supported by implants that are surgically placed in the jawbone. The implants that provide support to the prosthesis are known as abutment sites. This is a restorative dental option for missing teeth. There are a variety of implant prostheses available depending on the specific needs and conditions of the patient. The most common implant prostheses include:

  • Single Prosthesis – A crown attached to its own implant, used to replace a single missing tooth.
  • Partial Prosthesis or Fixed Bridge – A partial prosthesis is used to replace a long span of missing teeth and is removable. A fixed bridge replaces multiple teeth, is not removable and requires at least two implants.
  • Complete Dental Prosthesis – A removable or fixed prosthesis used to replace all teeth in the upper or lower arch.

Dr Nason will perform a comprehensive dental examination and diagnosis to determine your oral condition and the most ideal type of prosthesis for you.

Types of Implant-Supported Prosthesis

Based on the data gathered from your dental evaluation, Dr. Z will recommend the best oral care treatment plan for you. He will also discuss every implant-supported prosthesis option that is available for your dental condition.

Here are several types of implant-supported prosthesis:

  1. Metal-Acrylic Resin: Metal-acrylic resin is the primary type of fixed implant prosthesis. This type of dental prosthesis provides excellent, durable and reliable results.
    • With metal-acrylic resin, a metal framework is fabricated and designed to help retain the acrylic resin that is attached to the implants. Metal-acrylic resin dental prosthetics use CAD/CAM in fabricating precision-fit frameworks. This is to ensure that the prosthetics fit snugly in your mouth.
    • The metal-acrylic resin prosthesis is screw-retained onto the abutment sites. This type of prosthesis is relatively easy to retrieve in cases of repair and adjustments.
  2. Metal-Ceramic: Metal-ceramic prosthesis is a more common form of dental prosthetics. The ceramic material is very similar to tooth enamel, thus, enhancing your dental aesthetics. The color of the ceramic can be customized to look like the remaining natural teeth.
    • Metal-ceramic prosthesis is designed to provide both durability and reliability. This type of dental prosthetics is fabricated to strongly hold onto the implant while ensuring durable porcelain crowns.
    • A CAM process is employed to create the metal framework for metal-ceramic prosthesis. A full-contour wax-up of the framework is cast in a ceramic-metal alloy to ensure full-arch precision.
  3. All-Ceramic: An all-ceramic prosthesis is similar to metal-ceramic minus the metal frame. The substructure of all-ceramic dental prosthetics is made from ceramic or zirconia instead of metal. This type of prosthesis is highly recommended for patients with allergic reactions to metal.

These are the 3 types of implant-supported prosthesis that may be recommended to restore your missing teeth. Implant-supported prosthesis provides many oral health benefits for you and your loved ones. Both resin and ceramic materials used for dental prosthesis can be customized to look like your natural teeth. These resin and ceramic dental prosthetics are attached to dental implants making it more stable and fixed. Thus, these dental prostheses also function like natural teeth.
