Concord, NH (PRWEB) May 20, 2014
Dr. Austin Wang of Cornerstone Periodontics & Implants announces the availability of a new technique for denture support with dental implants in Concord, NH and the surrounding areas. The dental implant surgery techniques used by Dr. Wang and his practice allow for patients to benefit from a secure implant that is comfortable and does not slip or shift with use. Since dental implantation is a commonly requested procedure for tooth replacement, there will likely be a great number of patients positively impacted by the announcement of Dr. Wang’s expansion. The widespread availability of the procedures that Dr. Wang employs will serve to benefit a great deal of people in need of treatments such as this.
The procedure for dental implant surgery is quite interesting, as Dr. Wang first places titanium posts into the jaw bone of the patient. After allowing a period of three to six months to pass so that the posts can integrate with the bone, Dr. Wang can proceed with the next part of the procedure of installing dental implants in Concord, NH, which is restoring the implants with an implant crown, an implant bridge, or implant supported dentures.
A single dental implant will be connected to a highly aesthetic, natural looking porcelain crown that matches the surrounding teeth. A dental bridge supported by implants can be utilized to replace three or more consecutive missing teeth. Both of these options are permanent and fully function like natural teeth.
Replacing an entire arch or mouth of teeth with implant supported dentures is a popular alternative to wearing traditional dentures which tend to slip and result in discomfort. Dental implant surgery uses one of two methods to secure the dentures in place, either bar-retained dentures or ball-retained dentures.
With bar-retained dentures, the bar serves as a stabilizer to support the dentures and keep them in place. This provides a solid foundation, as the dentures are secured with metal clasps to the bar. For ball-retained dentures, a ball-and-socket mechanism is used for securing the dentures in place. The balls will be attached to the posts that were put in place during the dental implant surgery, which correspond to matching sockets in the dentures, providing a secure hold that is safe for constant daily use.
With the advanced support using dental implants in Concord, NH and the surrounding areas, patients will be able to benefit from tooth replacement methods that are secure and are also comfortable. Those who are interested in learning more about this procedure should call Dr. Wang’s office to schedule an appointment for a consultation.
