If you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants may be the best replacement solution. In fact, implants are the most popular dental restoration in Frisco. Most important, these small titanium posts are embedded in the jaw bone to replace missing tooth roots. The posts provide excellent support for your dental restoration.
Implants are used in single-tooth restorations and dental bridge. On the other hand, a dental crown is used in conjunction with dental implants. Dr. Patel performs preparatory procedures needed in conjunction with implant placement. Often, patients need a tooth extraction, bone grafting, or membrane grafting.
Dental crowns are used in many dental procedures to restore teeth. After all, the crown of a tooth helps us perform many daily functions, such as chew food. Dr. Patel can restore your tooth with a porcelain crown that is damaged from tooth decay.
We now offer same-day crowns milled chairside in our Frisco, TX dentist office. Dr. Patel uses all-porcelain crowns and bridges, which are nearly indistinguishable from natural teeth. Also, Dr. Patel performs crown lengthening, a process of removing excess gum tissue to create a more attractive frame for your teeth. As a result, the esthetics of your crown or bridge is nicely complimented.
If you are missing a significant number of teeth, dentures can restore your smile. Even more, removable dentures can restore the form and function of your mouth. Traditional dentures have been around for hundreds of years. However, advancements in dental technology have improved the quality of denture materials.
Traditional removable dentures can replace some or all teeth per arch. Partial removable dentures or partials can replace one or teeth. Full removable dentures are used to replace all teeth on the bottom or top arch. Sometimes, dentures need to be relined or replaced if not cared for properly. Dr. Patel can provide you with the best option to restore your oral health.
When repairing a small area of decay, a tooth filling is a great option. The area is filled with a tooth-colored composite resin to match your natural teeth. Typically, a filling is the best way to restore a tooth following cavity treatment. If left untreated, it can eventually result in infection and tooth loss.
Dr. Patel will numb the tooth and remove all decay before placing the filling. At Aesthetic General Dentistry of Frisco we use BPA-free, tooth-colored composite resin dental filling material. After all, the composite resin bonds better with the tooth structure and mimics the tooth’s natural shade and sheen. Once completed, the filling should stop the decay and keep the tooth healthy for a number of years.
If you are missing most of your teeth on the top or bottom jaw, implant-supported dentures are an excellent option. Implant-supported dentures are permanent and provide the highest degree of stability. Permanent dentures do require bone structure to place the dental restoration.
Notably, Dr. Patel works alongside these professionals to offer the All-on-4 dental implants technique. Once you have healed, he can restore your implants to complete your smile. Many times, if appropriate planning has been taken, same-day restorations can be provided. We also offer financing to cover the cost of dental implants.
If you have waited a long time to address missing teeth, or if you have experienced advanced infection, you may have begun to experience jaw bone atrophy. Dr. Patel performs bone grafting to replace lost bone mass, restoring periodontal sockets and pontic sites for dental bridges. Bone grafting can also be a necessary preliminary step to help patients prepare for dental implants. Bone grafting is most often performed to preserve the dental ridge.
Do you have a number of dental concerns, such as missing, broken, or decayed teeth? If so, a full mouth reconstruction may be the best solution. First, schedule a consultation with Dr. Patel to discuss your dental concerns and all possible treatment options. Next, Dr. Patel will help you create a customized treatment plan.
Generally, a full mouth reconstruction consists of two or more dental restoration procedures. Restorative Dentistry procedures in Frisco will restore your oral health, form, and function. Before beginning any treatment, Dr. Patel will address underlying conditions such as gum disease to ensure more effective and long-lasting results.
