What Are Dental Implants & Why?
 
Everyone deserves a beautiful smile. With the tremendous advances in aesthetic dentistry, there's no reason to put up with anything less. With dental implants, missing teeth can now be easily, comfortably, and beautifully replaced.
 
Dental implants are a natural looking replacement for missing teeth. They provide the same function as your natural tooth root.The actual dental implant is a small, sturdy, titanium post that acts as the root structure would for a natural tooth. 
 
A dental implant is placed into your upper or lower jawbone.Implants are very durable and can last a lifetime, requiring the same care as natural teeth; brushing, flossing and regular dental check-ups.Titanium metal is used because of its compatibility with bone and oral tissues. 
 

Dental implants can replace a single tooth or a full arch of teeth which have been lost due to injury or disease.Dental implants give our patients the confidence to eat and chew again. They are stable inside the mouth, and a tooth colored crown with the same color, shape, and size of your adjacent teeth is placed on top of the implant.

What-Are-Dental-Implants

The Surgical Procedure:

 

Most of our patients will undergo two separate procedures. First, our Dentistwill prepare your bone and place the titanium post (implant) and allow the dental implant to fuse within your jaw bone for 3-4 months. In between surgeries, we will fabricate temporary teeth that fill in the missing space or spaces.
Secondly our well trained , Dentist will place a permanent tooth colored crown specially shaped and formed to match your adjacent teeth that will fit on top of your dental implant.

Surgical Advances:

 

A new advancement is placement of dental implants in one surgery or "single stage." When the bone and gums are healthy and the anatomy is favorable, dentist can place a dental implant immediately after tooth extraction and a prosthetic tooth or crown is placed mimicking your adjacent teeth. Six weeks later the permanent crown will be placed.
In order complete a definitive treatment plan for your dental implants, a team approach is taken which includes the oral surgeon, the general dentist, and the patient. The oral surgeon places the titanium post (implant) within your jaw bone and the general dentist places the permanent crown on top of the implant. The patient will come in for close follow up to ensure all parties are meeting patient's expectations.

What Types Of Prosthesis Are Available?

 

How many crowns will you have on top of your dental implant? Single prosthesis means one crown. A fixed bridge or partial prosthesis means two or more implants will have two or more crowns. Finally, all of the teeth on your upper or lower jaw can replaced with a complete dental prosthesis or implant supported over denture. Our Surgeons will discuss with you how many dental implants you may need for the best outcome.

Why Select Dental Implants Over More Traditional Types Of Restorations?

 

One reason is that for a fixed bridge you may have cut down healthy neighboring teeth to anchor the bridge. Second reason is that studies show teeth used to anchor fixed bridge and partial denture have a failure rate of 30% after five to seven years. Third reason is that you can live a secure, healthy, active lifestyle with family and friends.

Are You A Candidate For Implants?

 

Dental implants have a high success rate and are a treatment option for all patients with the exception of smokers. Our Dentist will review your past medical history, past surgical history, and any medications you take. If the height and width of your bone is too little, a bone graft will likely be placed and allowed to heal for three to four months.
What Type Of Anesthesia Is Used?
Placement of your dental implants and any bone grafting can be performed with or without IV sedation under local anesthesia.

Do Implants Need Special Care?

 

The success rate is very high. Our dentist will need to see you for regular follow ups to meet your expectations. Good oral hygiene (brushing and flossing) is very important to maintain a long lasting, healthy dental implant.

Sinus Graft:

In the upper jaw above the back of the teeth, it is possible to increase the height of bone available by creating new bone in the sinus. This procedure is called a sinus grafting – a skilled surgeon can deliver very predictable results in this location. Without the general success of this technique, many patients would be unable to have implants in a part of the mouth where teeth are so commonly missing.

Without a Sinus Graft, it would not be possible to place implants in this case

The bone is too thin. The Sinus Graft is a technique of raising the sinus floor so that there is sufficient space to augmentation additional bone that will help support dental implants. We need a minimum of 10mm bone thickness to support an implant

The 1st molar was removed and only a thin layer of bone is present. Like in Picture 1 above, without a Sinus Graft, it would not be possible to place implants in this case. The bone is too thin.

The sinus floor has been lifted and filled with bone grafting material. About 6 months later the implant will be placed.
