DENTAL IMPLANTS

Dental Implant

If you lose one or more teeth due to periodontal disease, or another cause, there is hope. Dental implants are changing the way people live! They are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. Patients with dental implants can smile with confidence.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. The implants themselves are tiny titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. These metal anchors act as tooth root substitutes. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. Small posts that protrude through the gums are then attached to the implant. These posts provide stable anchors for artificial replacement teeth. Dental implants also help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing.

Evaluation

If, like many others, you feel implant dentistry is the choice for you, we ask that you undergo a dental/radiographic examination and health history. During these consultation visits, Last Name(s) will address your specific needs and considerations. Your questions and concerns are important to us and our team will work with you very closely to help make your procedure a success. We will also discuss fees and insurance at this time. There are many types of insurance plans, and coverage for implants is varied. We will be happy to assist you in obtaining any benefits to which you may be entitled.

The Surgical Procedure

For most patients, the placement of dental implants involves two surgical procedures. First, implants are placed within your jawbone. Healing time following surgery varies from person to person and is based on a variety of factors, such as hardness of bone. In some cases, implants may be restored immediately after they are placed. For the first three to six months following the surgery, dental implants are beneath the surface of the gums gradually bonding with the jawbone. You should be able to wear temporary dentures and eat a soft diet at this time. At the same time, your restorative dentist designs the final bridgework or denture that will ultimately improve both function and aesthetics. After the implant has bonded to the jawbone, the second phase begins. Last Name(s) will uncover the implants and attach a small healing collar. After two weeks your general dentist will be able to start making your new teeth. An impression must be taken. Then posts or attachments can be connected to the implants. The teeth replacements are then made over the posts or attachments. The entire procedure usually takes six to eight months. Most patients do not experience any disruption in their daily life.

What's the procedure to create and install a dental implant?

1.Installing an implant: Implant is surgically installed into the bone. The whole procedure is done under local anesthesia so it is painless and fastly done (one visit) . If it is necessary, through the process of installing an implant, we upgrade the patients bone ( if the volume and quality of the bone is not satisfying and could be replaced by artificial bone).

2.Timeofhealing(Osseointegration):Osseointegration is a process in which implanted material is being integrated with the bone. Time of coalescence depends on patients bone state and general state of the organism (6-8 weeks). If teeth are properly cleaned after the procedure, healing process is going to be painless and without any complications.

3. Implanting prosthetics: After the healing phase it is time to install prosthetics (crowns, bridges, dentures) or teeth on implants.

4. Dental care and control of your teeth: If you are taking care of your dental hygene, doing regular dental chek-ups and using interdental toothbrushes your dental implant will last longer.

IMPLANTOPROSTHETIC RECOVERY OF JAW:

All-on-four implants

It is a method for patients with no teeth or with complete dentures which allows them to get a complete fixed dental solution at once. This method is especially good for patients with less jaw bone because it is not necessary to upgrade it. The process is based on bridge which is firmed on implants.

Implants + prosthetics

This is a method with crossbar implants, where they function as an anchor for replacement teeth. This is a good option which allows patients to put off the denture and clean it.
