Gaps in your smile can pose a problem not only with your aesthetics but also with your oral health. Missing teeth can lead to additional bone and tooth loss as well as changes in your facial shape if left untreated. At Bionica Dental Wellness, Dr. Holinbeck and her team of professionals want to help you avoid these situations by using a bioceramic dental implant to replace your tooth and restore your smile. These metal-free restorations make it possible to continue stimulating the jawbone while giving you a healthier, more pleasing appearance that boosts your confidence and has you enjoying the many benefits of a longer-lasting smile.

When two consecutive teeth are missing, there’s no need to consider alternative options. With a single dental implant, Dr. Holinbeck can replace the tooth and have a custom-made restoration made that consists of two fused dental crowns. One will sit on top of your implant while the other will rest on top of your gums, completing your overall look.
If three or more consecutive teeth are missing, she and her team can take it a step further by placing two bioceramic dental implants into two of the vacated sockets. Creating a strong and stable foundation for the restoration, Dr. Holinbeck will take impressions of your smile and have a customized implant-supported bridge created using three or more fused dental crowns. The outer prosthetics will sit atop the implants while the interior artificial teeth will remain atop the gums.
When multiple missing teeth occur along the top or bottom arch, you do not have to settle for a traditional partial denture, especially if they are not consecutive teeth. Instead, we can place the appropriate number of implants along the arch and craft a partial denture that will be secured to your implants. There is no need to attach the prosthetic to your natural teeth because of the implants' ability to stabilize your restoration for a longer-lasting smile.
When opting to choose an implant-supported bridge or partial denture, you will discover many of the additional benefits cannot be achieved using alternative, more traditional methods. These include:
