Tooth restorations are the various ways a dentist can replace or repair missing teeth or missing parts of the tooth structure. Tooth structure can be missing due to decay, deterioration of a previously placed restoration, or fracture of the tooth.
An implant is a replacement tooth root that is actually a small post made of titanium that is placed into the bone where teeth are missing. The implant is the foundation for a replacement tooth called a crown. Multiple implants can be utilized to support a cemented bridge, denture or partial denture. The types of implant restorations provided by Dr. Ostlund include:
- Implant Supported Crowns and Bridges
- Implant Supported Dentures and Partial Dentures
The surgical portion of implant placement is performed by a carefully selected Referral Partner according to Dr. Ostlund’s diagnosis and treatment plan.
