patient smiling after dental implant treatment

Over time, dental accidents and daily function can wear down your dentition, leaving it vulnerable to decay and damage. In certain scenarios, such as tooth avulsion or severe decay, it may be more beneficial to a patient’s oral health to replace the tooth with a dental implant.

In Omaha, Dr. Michele Chang works with the best oral surgeons and periodontists to provide patients with comprehensive implant dentistry Through this lasting solution, our dental team is able to assist patients in achieving and maintaining their long-term oral health and a beautiful smile. 

What is a Dental Implant?

Consisting of an implant post, a connective abutment, and a prosthetic restoration, dental implants are versatile solutions for replacing varying numbers of missing teeth. As implants are surgically placed into the jaw bone, this treatment offers patients the stability, function, and aesthetic appeal of a natural tooth. 

Who is a Candidate for Dental Implants?

Thanks to innovations in the field, dental implants and implant-supported dentures have become a viable treatment options for patients with diverse restorative needs. By working closely with local dental specialists, our Omaha dentists develop comprehensive, strategic treatment plans that incorporate preliminary therapies to reinforce the health of the smile prior to implant placement.

Dental Implant Restoration at Anding Family Dental

Similar to our other procedures, developing treatment plans for implants begins with understanding our patient’s main concerns, identifying current and potential oral issues, and determining which treatment will best fulfill these needs. 

Once we’ve determined that dental implants are the best treatment option for the patient, Dr. Chang begins developing a strategic treatment plan, coordinating with local dental specialists to create a treatment timeline. This includes determining whether preliminary jaw treatments will be needed, as well as how many implants will be needed to support the final restoration.

At Anding Family Dental, our implant restoration options include:

  • Single Crowns: The replacement of one missing tooth
  • Fixed Bridges: Ideal for replacing several missing teeth
  • All-on-Four Implants: Recommended for replacing entire arches of missing teeth
  • Implant-Supported Dentures: Removable full arch restorations

Following the implant placement procedure, patients continue to visit the coordinating specialist over the course of recovery to ensure proper healing. As soon as the implant has successfully recovered, patients return to Anding Family Dental for the attachment of their restoration. While the entire implant process is longer than traditional restoration options, the long-term benefits of dental implants provide patients with a permanent solution to tooth loss.
