Marysville Dental Implants

There’s no such thing as a one size fits all solution to dentistry, but when it comes to tooth replacement, there is only one treatment option that restores the entire dental structure, including both the roots and the biting surface of teeth. The Darby Creek Dental team offers patients in Plain City and surrounding areas dental implant supported tooth replacement for superior whole tooth restoration. Tooth roots provide support and stability for teeth, anchoring them to the jaw. Additionally, the root structure stimulates jawbone and gum tissue density that supports facial shape and volume. Contact our Marysville team to find out if dental implant tooth replacement is right for you.

Dental Implant Restoration

The dental implant process is completed in two phases: implantation and restoration. During the implantation portion of treatment, we work in partnership with a local oral surgeon who surgically places titanium implant posts into the gum line. Following the placement of dental implants, patients need to wait three to six months to receive their final restoration. During this time, the implant post fuses with the supportive alveolar bone in a process known as osseointegration. Once this process is completed, the dental implant is securely positioned to provide adequate support for a dental restoration. At this point, patients return to our office where we’ll affix their restoration. Dental implants are versatile enough to replace any number of missing teeth from a single tooth dental crown to a full arch denture. Depending on the type and position of the restoration, we may be able to offer removable or fixed attachments based on the patient’s preference.

Implant Retained Dentures

For fully edentulous (without teeth) patients, implant supported dentures offer a sturdier alternative to traditional, removable dentures. Our team offers a number of styles and types of implant supported dentures, including removable and fixed dentures composed of a row of teeth set into a gum colored base or a series of three to four tooth bridges supported by implants for a more natural look and feel. Benefits of implant-retained dentures, especially when compared with traditional removable dentures, include:
