Discover Your New Smile
If you’re looking to restore your smile, visiting a trained prosthodontist is a smart decision. Prosthodontists complete years of advanced training with an emphasis on dental prosthetics, restorative dentistry, and transforming smiles.
Drs. Skowron and Curtin are highly experienced prosthodontists who you can trust with your smile. Though we don’t place implants at our practice, rest assured our doctors will help you find the perfect solution to complete your restoration.
Our Implant Restorations
- Crowns — The most popular choice for single-tooth replacement is a dental crown. Our crowns are custom-made from durable, tooth-colored porcelain for a stunning appearance and long-lasting results.
- Bridges — For patients missing multiple adjacent teeth, a dental bridge offers a more affordable and convenient alternative to placing several crowns. By anchoring a bridge with a dental implant, you can avoid relying on your surrounding teeth for support.
- Dentures — For patients missing several teeth, we offer customized partial dentures to fill the gaps in your smile. We also feature complete dentures for patients missing all of their teeth in one or both arches. Implant-supported dentures offer several advantages over traditional ones, including unmatched stability and long-term protection for your oral health.
Dental Implant FAQs
How long do dental implants last?
Dental implants are designed to last a lifetime with proper oral care and consistent visits to our office.
How much do dental implants cost?
The cost of your dental implant treatment will vary for each patient. The overall price may be different depending on the implant provider you choose, which implant solution you receive, and whether or not you need a supplemental procedure.
Are dental implants safe?
The dental implant procedure is safe and done with caution and care throughout the process. Most implant dentists will offer sedation options so you feel comfortable and relaxed.
Dental implants are also one of the safest tooth replacement options because they naturally integrate into your jawbone, protecting your jaw from further bone loss, and improving your oral health overall.
How do you take care of your dental implants after the procedure?
Right after your implant placement, many implant providers will recommend you stick to a soft food diet, avoid drinking alcohol or smoking, don’t spit or use a straw, and rinse your mouth with warm saltwater to help reduce inflammation.
For successful long-term care of your dental implants, continue to brush, floss, and rinse with mouthwash to ensure your teeth and gums remain healthy. Also, be sure to come into our office for regular check-ups so we can thoroughly clean your teeth and gums, plus check your mouth for any potential issues.
What do I do in the event of a complication with my dental implants?
If you experience a complication with your dental implant restoration, give our office a call so we can see if your crown, bridge, or denture need to be repaired. Otherwise, give your implant dentist a call immediately if the implant itself is damaged so they can get you in for a check-up.
