Dental Implant Restorations

Dentistry tools for dental implant restoration

Dental implants are prosthetic tooth roots that are fixed into your jawbone. Each one has the ability to support more weight than a natural tooth, thanks to extremely durable titanium. If you have missing teeth, Dr. Bell can help you permanently replace them with beautiful Alexandria dental implants!

A Team Approach

While Dr. Bell does not surgically place implant roots at our Alexandria office,he does complete the fixed implant appliances after the implant placement. We work directly with an Alexandria dental implant surgeon for the surgical placement of the implant root, but then Dr. Bell will take over for the restorative phase.

If this seems too confusing, don’t worry. We will guide you step by step through your entire dental implant treatment so that you know exactly what to expect.

You can replace one tooth, or all of your teeth!

Single Implant Crowns – For individually missing teeth. Implant crowns are shaped, colored and matched to resemble traditional dental crowns and are then bonded over the implant abutment. Your new crown will look just like your other teeth.

Implant Bridges – Like traditional dental bridges, implant bridges replace several missing teeth at one time. However, our Alexandria dental implant bridges can replace up to 3 or 4 teeth at one time – more than a traditional bridge. Each end of the bridge is supported by an implant root.

Implant Supported Dentures – For a permanent denture option, fixed implant dentures are an excellent choice. Implant overdentures and All-on-4 dentures are secured in your mouth by the implants. That way you never have to worry about a loose, ill-fitting denture prosthesis. Enjoy a snap-in denture or one that is permanently anchored in place!

Benefits of Alexandria Dental Implants

One of the biggest benefits of dental implants is their ability to encourage new bone growth inside of your mouth. When placed into the jaw, titanium triggers bone development and fusion between the artificial root and your mouth. This is known as osseointegration, and it is a process that permanently anchors the implant into your jaw. Your implant will be so strong, that it can actually support more weight than a natural tooth!

When replacing missing teeth, implants can support larger prosthesis than you might suspect. That is why only a few dental implants are needed when several teeth are missing.
