Dental Implants & Prosthetics

Dental implants are becoming an increasingly popular method for replacing missing teeth. For over 25 years Dr Davantzis has been surgically placing and restoring dental implants and has extensive experience in this procedure. The titanium fixtures are surgically placed into your jaw and fuse with your bone during the initial healing phase. They act as an anchor for naturally looking prosthetic teeth which are custom fabricated during Phase 2. Dental implants are not only used for individual tooth replacement, but can also be used when replacing multiple teeth as an alternative to dentures.

 

 

 

 

 

Advantages of dental implants

  • Implants and their prosthetics are extremely natural looking
  • Single tooth replacement prevents the destruction of adjacent, healthy teeth which is necessary if constructing a traditional fixed bridge
  • Fusion of the implants into your jaw make them very stable and comfortable compared to traditional dentures


Types of implants


Dr Davantzis will be able to tell you which of the three types of implants is right for you:

 

  • Root form implant: This is the most common type of implant where the screw is shaped like the root of a tooth.
  • Plate Form Implant: A plate form implant has a flat and long shape and is better suited for a narrow jawbone.
  • Subperiosteal Implants: In some cases where there is not enough bone width or height for the root form or plate form implant, a subperiosteal implant may be prescribed. This type of implant is designed to sit on top of the bone, but under the gums.
