Restorative Dentistry Treatment Options
Dr. Sousa & Associates have extensive experience with treating patients with damaged or missing teeth. Before treatment, Dr. Sousa will assess the condition of your teeth, jaw, and overall oral health. He will also review your options with you to choose the treatment option that best aligns with your oral health goals.
The dental implant process begins with a titanium post that is attached to the jawbone. The post fuses to the jaw and bone tissue, then it is allowed time to heal before an abutment is attached. Abutments connect implants to the final restoration, which may be a dental bridge, dental crown, or denture. Dental implants can be a great permanent solution that improves oral health and tooth appearance.
Dental bridges are used to “bridge the gap” between teeth. This option can be effective for patients who are missing one tooth or several teeth. Fixed or removable dental bridges can help prevent problems like gum disease that can occur because of missing teeth.
Patients who are missing the upper or lower arch of teeth can benefit from dentures. Removable or fixed dentures make it easier for patients to bite and chew. Dentures also provide patients with new and improved teeth that look and feel natural.
