Posterior Implants are dental implants that replace missing teeth towards the back of the jaw.
In addition to incurring incredible amounts of pressure and force during meals, the back teeth are often visible when you enjoy a hearty laugh and they serve as part of the framework that gives your face its natural contours. That’s why our dental implants for the back teeth are subjected to such high expectations, both during and after the treatment process.
When the back teeth are replaced with dental implants, we pay particular attention to the following criteria:
High Level of Function and Strength
The post is the portion of the implant that will serve as the artificial root for your new tooth. We’ll select an implant post that will be sturdy enough to provide you with long term biting and chewing efficiency. Made from high-grade titanium, the post is designed to permanently integrate with the jawbone so that it can support a single dental crown, a bridge, and even dentures.
By permanently anchoring the implant post into the jawbone, we can provide you with a secure chewing and biting experience. Raw fruits and vegetables, meats, chips, and other textured foods can be chewed and properly digested without any discomfort or limitations.
The appearance of the back teeth may not be scrutinized as closely as the front teeth, but that doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t look like real teeth! After the implant post has become fused with the jawbone, it will be finished with a realistic-looking replacement tooth. It can be finished with a tooth-colored porcelain crown or it can connect to a dental bridge.
Invest in Yourself
Your back teeth are just as critical to your appearance and your chewing pattern as your front teeth. If the back teeth are missing, replacing them with durable and attractive dental implants can provide you with the comfort and function that you once enjoyed with your natural teeth.
