Dental Implants

Implants

A dental implant is essentially an artificial tooth root that is surgically placed into the jawbone. One or more missing teeth can be replaced by attaching a crown, a fixed bridge, or a full set of dentures on top of the implants.

Candidates for Implants

Most patients who are healthy and not restricted from undergoing minor dental surgical procedures, and who have good oral hygiene can have dental implants. Your dentist will assess the potential implant site to determine whether there is sufficient bone volume and gum thickness to allow placement of an implant. We begin by undertaking a clinical examination that will involve inspection, palpation and gentle probing of the potential implant site and adjacent teeth. In straightforward cases, simple dental x-rays are usually sufficient to examine the bone. In more complex cases, specialized implant x-rays, known as tomograms, are usually required (either plain x-rays or CAT scans).

Implants Function

Implants function and feel very much like natural teeth. For patients that have lived with removable appliances, you will feel much more secure with implant retained teeth versus your old removable teeth.

Implants Sucess Rate

Most recent implant systems have success rate of 90-98% for 10 years perio

Smoking and Implants Do Not Mix

Smoking is one of the biggest risk factors in failure of dental implants. Recent studies estimate that the chances of failure increase in a smoker.

Treatment for Failed Implants

In most situations, an implant can be replaced if it fails to bond with the bone provided that adequate bone and gum tissue is present. Failures do not occur very often but they do occur.

Wearing Dental Appliances Following Surgery

In most cases, existing dentures and other temporary appliances can be worn immediately after implant surgery. There are exceptions but our goal is too minimize any esthetic concerns during the healing phase

Procedures for Implant Placement

In most cases, implants can be placed using local anesthesia in our office. In more complex cases, we may recommend that the surgical phase be performed while you are under sedation.

Immediate Functioning Implants

Sometimes if quality and quantity of bone is adequate then immediate loading of implants can be possible where the final crown is given within 10-15 days.


All-on-4®

The All-on-4® treatment concept is a cost-efficient, graftless solution that provides patients with a fixed full-arch prosthesis on the day of surgery.

Characteristics include:

Full-arch rehabilitation with only four implants

Two straight anterior implants and two implants tilted up to 45º in the posterior

Immediate Function (fixed provisional bridge)

For patients meeting criteria for immediate loading of implants

Graftless procedure

Bone grafting is avoided by tilting the posterior implants, utilizing available bone
