They are permanent, they do not move or slip inside the mouth, and they require no daily maintenance other than regular brushing and flossing. Dr. Wayde Fawcett provides beautiful, custom-made porcelain crowns for dental implants that can ultimately serve to help you restore both form and function of your teeth.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
People with missing teeth often experience problems with chewing or speaking. It may even have a negative effect on their appearance. Dental implants are the ideal way of replacing missing teeth. The implants are designed to become a permanent part of your mouth, just like your natural teeth. In fact, the ceramic crown that is attached to the implant is so lifelike it’s practically indistinguishable from your natural teeth. In addition, the crown is custom designed and created precisely so that the fit is not only comfortable, but also extremely secure, so that you won’t even notice it when you chew or speak.

Dr. Fawcett explains, “By having the latest computer assisted technology that integrates the digital scanning & design capabilities of CEREC with the diagnostic accuracy of a GALILEOS 3D scan, I am able to treatment plan the surgical and the prosthetic implant simultaneously, which ensures maximum safety for my patients and a more predictable outcome.” This is a huge advantage for our patients, because they won’t have to visit multiple doctors and because Dr. Fawcett can pinpoint the placement and the angle of the dental implant precisely, they have the peace of mind knowing that the final crown will fit perfectly in the mouth.
Do implants work for everyone?
If you are interested in implants to replace a missing or lost tooth, Dr. Fawcett will perform a thorough evaluation to determine if your health is conducive to this type of restoration. If you aren’t in good general health, implants may not work for your needs. Healthy gums and good jawbone density are essential to support the implants. You must also be meticulous about regular dental visits and maintaining your dental hygiene. There’s a higher risk with implants for those who suffer from diabetes, as this can interfere with healing. Smokers are not good candidates for implants since they are at greater risk for gum disease than non-smokers, and gum disease weakens the gum and bone tissue needed to support implants.
