Cheney Dental Implant Dentists Customize Dental Implants For Exceptional Results

Written by Dr. Collins on Aug 22, 2017

Thanks to dental implant technology, patients suffering from tooth loss now have access to natural looking replacement teeth that stay permanently in place. Our Cheney dentists provide dental implants that are customized to suit the individual patient’s needs, exactly. Keep reading to learn more about the ways in which we’re able to personalize replacement teeth.

Every dental implant has a replacement tooth root, which is a small titanium post or screw. This foundation is then capped with a connector piece called an abutment, and then a natural looking dental restoration.

As we begin to plan your tooth replacement treatment, we’ll first figure out what type of implant root is appropriate for your smile. Standard implant roots are generally 3.5 mm to 4 mm in diameter. However, there are also mini dental implant screws, which are thinner and less invasive.

We’ll also need to customize your final implant restoration, and in order to do this we’ll need to take a look at your existing smile. Different people naturally have different dental shapes—some teeth are more angular, while others are rounder. When we craft your implant restoration, we’ll ensure that the shape of the crown mimics your existing dental shapes—this helps to ensure natural-looking aesthetics.

While considering the appearance of your restoration, we’ll also personalize the shade of your crown so that it blends with your adjacent teeth.

It is also crucial that we perfect the size of your restoration. Obviously, we need to make sure that your crown’s size is natural looking. However, it’s also vital that your implant crown is sized so that it does not interfere with the overall structure and function of your smile. An inappropriately shaped and sized restoration can lead to bite dysfunctions, TMJ damage, and uneven dental wear and tear.

There are no one-size-fit-all tooth replacement options available in our office. We know that in order to achieve an attractive, high-quality, and long-lasting result, we need to do our due diligence prior to beginning treatment.
