Dental Implants

Dental Implant Restoration

Implants are biocompatible prosthetics, using synthetic roots as anchors that fit where your tooth’s root used to be. The jawbone fuses with the synthetic root, securing it into place so that it can support the attachment of a fixed restoration. Implants are so well designed that they superbly mimic the look and feel of your natural teeth.

Dr. Paschal has worked with implants for a number of years. Although we no longer place them in our office (we work with a specialist who provides the surgical phase of treatment), we continue to provide the permanent restorative prosthetics that are placed on top of the implant root.

Some of the types of Implant services that we provide at West Reno Dental include:

Single Tooth Replacement (Implant Crowns)

Ceramic crowns are matched carefully to the shade and shape of your nearby teeth – and then attached directly over the individual implant root. The result? A new prosthetic tooth that looks just like the real thing.

Implant Bridges

Instead of wearing a removable denture or altering your adjacent teeth to attach a bridge, we can use implants. Because of their strength, they allow Dr. Paschal to replace more teeth at one time than conventional bridges.

All-on-4 Implant Retained Dentures

In some cases, as few as four implants can be used to attach dentures into place. You’ll love the slimmer design, improved comfort, and the stability that they provide.
