At Pries Dental Care, replacing missing teeth with permanent dental implants is one of the most vital procedures we perform for our patients. A permanent dental implant is often the best replacement when a natural tooth (or teeth) is missing. An implant is made up of a titanium post implanted into the jawbone, an abutment that is placed on the post, and a very natural-looking ceramic crown that is placed on the abutment. The ceramic crown is created right in our office using state-of-the-art CEREC technology. Dental implants look, feel and function like natural teeth! Further, you will take care of your implants just like you do your natural teeth - by brushing and flossing.
Another important benefit to implants is that they prevent bone loss. For bone loss prevention, implants need to be placed as soon as possible after the loss of a tooth. Dr. Pries uses the most recent technology in dentistry such as 3D CBCT imaging and surgical planning software, which reduces the overall length of time that the full implant procedure takes.
We also provide multiple-tooth dental implants which use up to four implants in the upper or lower arch to provide the supporting structure for multiple-tooth replacement using a bridge. The titanium posts used in multiple-tooth dental implants are the strongest devices available to support replacement teeth.
