At Blue Sky Smiles, we want all of our friends, family, neighbors, and community members to be able to live their best lives. You may not know until it happens to you, but tooth loss can really put a damper on not only your smile but your confidence and quality of life. Not to mention the damage that occurs beneath the surface to your jawbone when teeth go missing. Thankfully, Dr. Robinson is a skilled and experienced dental implant provider in Saginaw and can complete the whole process from surgical placement to the final restoration from the
comfort of your dental home.
Dental implants are small posts or screws, usually made from biocompatible titanium, that are surgically inserted into the gums and jawbone where a tooth has gone missing. Rather than just replacing the crown or the visible portion of the tooth like traditional restorations including bridges and dentures, dental implants actually replace the tooth root, which is an essential part of a healthy, functioning smile and jawbone.
Once healed, dental implants can prevent jawbone deterioration and actually stimulate new bone and tissue growth around the implant, creating a healthier foundation for your smile. Dental implants serve as anchors for life-like restorations that look, feel, and function just like natural teeth. Dental implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth with an implant and a crown, multiple missing teeth with an implant supported bridge, or a full set of teeth with implant supported dentures.
If you’re missing all of your natural teeth or living with old dentures that rock and slip, we would love to help you improve your quality of life with one of our implant supported denture systems. Traditional implant denture systems require as many as six or more implants to support a full arch of teeth, which is a great option for health but can be too expensive for many patients. A healing period of six months is usually required after the surgical placement to ensure proper healing and integration, leaving you without teeth.
Thankfully, Dr. Robinson provides the All-on-4 system. With All-on-4, we use the minimum number of implants (four) to support the maximum number of teeth (a full arch). By placing the back implants at an angle, we are able to support more teeth with fewer implants, significantly cutting down surgical time and costs for you. Plus, we can fit you with a set of stabilizing teeth that keep your implants secure while they heal, so you can have implants placed and leave with a brand new smile the same day.
