Prosthodontics, Restorative, and Cosmetic Dentistry at Heninger Dental
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 restorative work has aspects of aesthetic or cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Heninger’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 Heninger Dental
Heninger Dental can correct a wide range of tooth replacement 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 dental implants is the same as taking care of natural teeth, and they are the best option for preventing bone loss in the jaw.
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.
Full and Partial Dentures
Dentures are a great replacement for missing teeth. They can be removed and put back in at any time. Here at Heninger Dental we offer affordable dentures while using the very best material on the market.
Hybrid dentures, or fixed-detachable prostheses, are dentures that attach to four or more implants in the jaw. They have some of the benefits of implants and some of the benefits of removable dentures.
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. Heninger for repairs.
Where conventional dental implants are one per tooth, implant-retained dentures are held in place by only four 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.
Dr. Heninger and the entire team here at Heninger Dental are committed to providing the best replacement teeth and restorative dentistry in Orem and the surrounding area.
