Dental Implant Restoration
At Edina Dental Care, Dr. Michael Kratz is pleased to offer the finest dental implant restorations for one or more teeth that have been lost or should be removed.
A dental implant is a predictable way to replace a tooth’s roots and provide a stable, strong support on which to place an implant crown, multi-unit implant bridge, or in association with three or more additional implants, even a complete denture. The advantages of dental implant treatment are so significant that Dr. Kratz encourages his patients to consider this treatment option.
When compared to traditional crown and bridge treatment, an implant-retained crown or multiunit bridge is more conservative, because it does not require preparing adjacent teeth for crowns. Not only is this highly durable treatment longer lasting, making it cost effective, but the costs of treatment can be afforded in regular payments through third-party financing.
Even edentulous patients, who have lost or are about to lose all their teeth on an arch, will have comfortable, stable and strong function when implants are used to support a snap-on overdenture or to retain a hybrid denture. The resulting smile will be natural in appearance. All possibility of denture slippage will have been eliminated.
If you have worn a removable complete overdenture and want to upgrade to an implant supported or retained denture, Dr. Kratz will be happy to explain what would be involved in your treatment and the resulting quality of life benefits you will enjoy.
For your implant treatment, Dr. Kratz will collaborate with a local periodontal specialist or oral surgeon to ensure greatest treatment success.
