Types of Dental Imlants
Dental implants are small titanium posts surgically embedded in the jaw to replace lost tooth roots, offering the very best support for dental crowns, bridges, and dentures. Once healing is complete, Dr. Clifford Degel can restore your smile with a customized, implant-supported restoration.
Mini dental implants are smaller in diameter, giving them a number of unique benefits. If a patient has waited to address missing teeth, and has experienced some jaw atrophy, mini implants can be a viable alternative. Mini implants can typically be placed and restored in a single appointment.
The Prettau® implant bridge is widely recognized as the gold standard in restorative dentistry because it is made of zirconia, which offers both exceptional strength and a natural appearance. The advanced material is extremely resistant to cracks and chips, and does not stain or absorb odors.
Dr. Degel uses the SIMPLANT® and Mini Drive-Lock® systems to accurately place mini dental implants in a single appointment. Using this technology he can determine the optimal position for the implants and accurately place them, setting the stage for a functional, beautiful new smile.
Prettau® Anterior products will not chip, crack, or wear on your surrounding natural teeth. Zirconia is the strongest material available and has an extremely natural-looking appearance that is resistant to staining and can be color matched to your existing teeth.
Zirconia dental implants offer patients who have metal allergies the opportunity to rejuvenate their smiles with the finest restorative option available. Implants made from ceramic zirconia are also made of one solid piece, eliminating prosthetic connections that can harbor bacteria.
