Our practice goes the extra mile, offering a diverse range of implant solutions designed to restore both health and beauty to your smile.
Whether you’re dealing with the loss of one tooth, or multiple teeth, or require a full arch replacement, Dr. Herman will carefully assess your unique situation and recommend the ideal treatment tailored to meet your specific needs. For personalized oral health solutions in Vincennes, IN, call us at (812) 882-1572 to schedule your appointment today.
When a patient is missing a single tooth, single-tooth implants offer a precise and effective solution. This procedure involves surgically placing an implant directly into the jawbone. A custom-designed crown is then affixed to the implant, seamlessly replacing the missing tooth. This approach is particularly well-suited for individuals who have lost a tooth due to trauma, decay, or other dental issues.
Our Vincennes clinic specializes in crafting stunning porcelain crowns to replace single missing teeth. These crowns are meticulously custom-made to seamlessly blend with the natural aesthetics of your smile while ensuring durability. Not only do our crowns enhance the visual appeal, but they also function just like natural teeth, allowing you to enjoy your favorite foods without any difficulty.
For those seeking a convenient and efficient option, our practice offers CEREC Same-Day Crowns. This cutting-edge technique involves capturing a highly detailed digital impression of the tooth, allowing us to mill a replacement crown within a few hours. This innovative approach to dental restoration ensures a swift and aesthetically pleasing solution for single-tooth replacements.
For a sophisticated solution to address multiple missing teeth within a single arch, consider Prettau implant bridges. Crafted from high-quality, durable Zirconia, these bridges provide natural aesthetics and exceptional strength. Unlike traditional bridges, they don’t rely on neighboring teeth for support, preserving your natural tooth structure.
Choosing Prettau bridges is a cost-effective alternative to individual crowns. The use of Zirconia, the strongest dental material, ensures maximum stability, resistance to chipping or staining, and hypoallergenic properties — ideal for those with metal allergies. Prioritizing both functionality and lasting aesthetics, Prettau implant bridges offer a comprehensive solution for multiple-tooth restoration.
For those missing all teeth in a dental arch, implant-supported dentures offer a stable and comfortable solution. Unlike traditional dentures, these dentures securely anchor to dental implants, preventing issues like slipping or discomfort.
Previously, removable dentures were the sole option for a full arch of replacement teeth. While effective for some, removable dentures pose risks of jawbone deterioration and misaligned teeth over time.
Now, we offer a durable alternative by securing your dentures with two or more dental implants, creating a convenient full arch replacement solution. Implant-supported dentures eliminate the need for messy adhesives and the worry of teeth shifting out of place, providing the freedom to eat, speak, and smile without restraint.
Herman Family Densitry provides these three implant solutions knowing each of our patients has different wants and needs. Certain factors influence the choice of your implant solution:
Once your surgical area is fully healed, caring for your dental implant becomes easier. All you need to do to maintain your dental implants is brush your teeth twice a day and floss once daily, in addition to visiting your dentist’s office biannually for regular dental checkups.
Your implant dentist or oral surgeon will provide you with aftercare instructions to ensure your healing process goes smoothly. Following these instructions will allow for a smoother recovery process and prevent complications.
If you’re considering dental implants, there’s no one better to assist you than Dr. Eric Herman. With years of experience placing implants, he can ensure you receive professional, comfortable dental care that produces spectacular results.
