Prosthodontics, Restorative, and Cosmetic Dentistry at John M. Purdy DDS
Prosthodontics may involve the reconstruction of a patient’s front teeth and therefore will have a significant impact on the patient’s appearance. This is why some prosthodontics have aspects of aesthetic or cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Purdy’s philosophy is to help a patient look better but always within the context of creating and preserving their oral health.
Restorative and Prosthodontic Services Offered at John M. Purdy DDS in El Paso, TX
John M. Purdy DDS can correct a wide range of tooth replacements and aesthetic issues. Some of these restorative treatments can include the following products or treatments:
Dental implants are artificial teeth that are placed into the jawbone and function the same way as the roots of teeth. Taking care of implants is the same as taking care of natural teeth.
Dental implants are by far the best long-term solution for missing teeth or people with chronic dental problems. Dental implants have very high success rates and are the new standard in tooth replacement because they fit and function like natural teeth. They improve your quality of life through rejuvenated oral function and appearance. Dental implants also stop the bone loss that would otherwise occur without a replacement for the missing tooth or teeth.
A flipper tooth is a removable, temporary tooth replacement for patients who have lost a tooth due to disease or injury while they wait for their permanent implant. Flippers are very easy to pop in and out, which is particularly useful for keeping them clean.
Dentures are a great replacement for missing teeth. They can be removed and put back in at any time. Here at John M. Purdy DDS we offer affordable dentures while using the very best material on the market.
It doesn’t happen very often, but just like real teeth, dental implants can become damaged even when we’re taking great care of them. If your implant becomes cracked, chipped, or feels loose, it’s time to come visit Dr. Purdy for repairs.
Where conventional dental implants are one per tooth, implant-retained dentures are held in place by only four dental implants per arch to give them permanent stability.
Unlike traditional removable partial dentures, which fit over the gums and clasp onto neighboring natural teeth to stay in place, implant-retained partials combine the advantages of dentures with those of individual implants.
