What are the steps to having a Dental Implant?
The first step in the dental implant process is the development of an individualised treatment plan. The plan addresses your specific needs and is prepared by our team of professionals who are specially trained and experienced in oral surgery and restorative dentistry.
A Ct Scan (3D Scan will be taken to allow the specialists to review the quality, density of bone, Sinus cavities and nerve location
With this detailed map of a patients anatomy we perform a virtual surgery or computer guided surgery that will allow the most accurate assessment of implant size, angulation and placement for optimal success..
This team approach provides coordinated care based on the implant option that is best for you.
Next, the tooth root implant, which is a small post made of titanium, is placed into the bone socket of the missing tooth. As the jawbone heals, it grows around the implanted metal post, anchoring it securely in the jaw.
The healing process is calculated to 4 months + .
Once the implant has bonded to the jawbone, a small connector post — called an abutment — is attached to the post to securely hold the new tooth. To make the new tooth or teeth, your dentist makes impressions of your teeth, and creates a model of your bite (which captures all of your teeth, their type, and arrangement). The new tooth or teeth is based on this model. A replacement tooth, called a crown, is then attached to the abutment.
MULTIPLE TOOTH IMPLANTS- Implant Bridges
If you are missing several teeth, implant-supported bridges can replace them.
Dental implants will replace both your lost natural teeth and some of the roots.
What are the advantages of implant-supported bridges over fixed bridges or removable partial dentures?
Dental implants provide several advantages over other teeth replacement options. In addition to looking and functioning like natural teeth, implant-supported bridges replace teeth without support from adjacent natural teeth. Other common treatments for the loss of several teeth, such as fixed bridges or removable partial dentures, are dependent on support from adjacent teeth.
In addition, because implant-supported bridges will replace some of your tooth roots, your bone is better preserved. With a fixed bridge or removable partial denture, the bone that previously surrounded the tooth root may begin to resorb (deteriorate). Dental implants integrate with your jawbone, helping to keep the bone healthy and intact.
In the long term, implants are esthetic, functional and comfortable. Gums and bone can recede around a fixed bridge or removable partial denture, leaving a visible defect. Resorbed bone beneath bridges or removable partial dentures can lead to a collapsed, unattractive smile. The cement holding bridges in place can wash out, allowing bacteria to decay teeth that anchor the bridge. In addition, removable partial dentures can move around in the mouth and reduce your ability to eat certain foods.
