Do you have one or more missing teeth? Even if they are not noticeable to others, missing teeth can make it harder to eat and speak properly, and can lead to other oral health problems if left untreated. Dr. Chris Hutton practices periodontics in Racine, WI and he can recommend the right treatment for you. There are several options available to replace missing teeth including bridges, dentures, and both traditional and All-on-4™ dental implants.  

Bridges and Dentures

 Traditional dentures offer the right solution for many patients to replace missing teeth. Generally, dentures are customized for each patient and may be modified or replaced over time if necessary. Patients use adhesives to set them in place.

Traditional Dental Implants

Dental implants offer a permanent solution to missing teeth. Titanium implants are surgically placed into the jawbone and crowns or veneers are attached to the top of the implant. In many ways, dental implants function just like natural teeth, and the crowns are custom made to match your remaining teeth. The implant stimulates the jawbone like natural roots which encourages healthy bone tissue growth and minimizes the risk of gum tissue loss.  

All-on-4™ Dental Implants  

The All-on-4™ technique for dental implants supports dentures with just four implants strategically placed in specific locations. This procedure offers many benefits, including:
       ●Suitable for patients with some bone loss
       ●May avoid the need for a bone graft
       ●Permanent solution
       ●May be completed in a single visit
       ●Allows eating of full range of foods
       ●Quick recovery time for most patients
Traditional and All-on-4™ dental implants offer patients many benefits, and Dr. Hutton has the expertise to recommend the right treatment for your situation.
