Excellence in dentistry – plus thorough communication

Dental implants are the most lifelike replacement for missing teeth. They are a permanent solution that replaces both the root and visible portion of the tooth above the gums. When placed by our experienced prosthodontist, Dr. Dean Kois, the titanium implant post creates an incredibly secure foundation on which the custom-crafted crown is attached. Patients who choose dental implants to fill the gaps in their smile can enjoy a number of benefits over other replacement options, including an improved ability to chew their favorite foods, easier maintenance, and an outcome that looks and feels like their natural teeth.

All-on-Four Dental Implants
All-on-Four is a treatment concept for placing dental implants to support a denture. This innovative solution involves the use of at least four to six implants per arch, acting as the support for an upper or lower teeth replacement. Since each individual tooth is not replaced with its own dental implant, many patients are good candidates for the All-on-Four procedure, even if they do not have adequate bone density for a full arch of dental implants.

Full and Partial Dentures
Dentures are recommended for patients needing most or all of their teeth replaced. This removable type of restoration is one of the most popular ways to replace several teeth (partial denture) or all of one’s natural teeth (full denture). For patients wanting a more permanent solution, dentures can be anchored to the jawbone in the implant-supported denture procedure. The best type of denture restoration will ultimately be decided after a consultation with Dr. Dean Kois when he can perform an oral exam and discuss the patient’s preferences and goals.

Full Mouth Reconstruction
For those requiring extensive dental work, our dentists may recommend a full mouth reconstruction. Under this comprehensive treatment plan, patients can restore their damaged teeth with a combination of our state-of-the-art procedures. This can include options such as dental implants, crowns, gum treatment, jaw surgery, TMJ Disorder treatment, and more. The goal of a full mouth reconstruction is to resolve or improve a variety of problems that may be affecting the teeth, mouth, gums, and/or jaw—under one all-encompassing treatment plan.

Crowns and Bridges
Dental crowns and dental bridges are two of the most common restorations that patients tend to receive. Crowns are ideal for those who need to repair a damaged or decayed tooth, including those that have undergone a root canal. The restoration acts as a “cap” to cover the weakened tooth, reinforcing its structural integrity. A bridge, on the other hand, replaces a missing tooth by literally “bridging” the gap. In most cases, two crowns are affixed to the teeth adjacent to the gap, while an artificial tooth is connected in the middle to replace the missing tooth. Both solutions can also be secured with a dental implant.

Bone and Gum Grafting
When teeth are lost, the bone where the teeth were housed can be damaged or resorbed. Bone grafting is the process to grow back this lost bone structure. This process can be done in many ways, depending on the specific needs of the patient. After the bone graft heals, dental implants are typically placed where the teeth have been lost.
If Dr. Kois determines your gums are receding, you may need a gum graft. A gum graft is a simple surgical procedure that helps restore gum health and vitality. The type of graft required depends on needs specific to each patient. Maintaining healthy gums is crucial to your overall oral health. Regular dental appointments can ensure that gum recession is noticed and addressed before a graft becomes necessary.
