DENTAL IMPLANTS


                                      DENTAL IMPLANTS



What Are Dental Implants?


Implants are devices that replace the roots of missing teeth, and are used to support crowns, bridges or dentures. Implants are placed in your jawbone surgically. Most of the time, implants feel more natural and secure than other methods of replacing missing teeth, such as dentures.


Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason. Dental implants are so natural-looking and feeling, you may forget you ever lost a tooth.


Under proper conditions, such as placement by a periodontist and diligent patient maintenance, implants can last a lifetime. Dental implants are intimately connected with the gum tissues and underlying bone in the mouth. Since periodontists are the dental experts who specialize in precisely these areas, they are ideal members of your dental implant team. Not only do periodontists have experience working with other dental professionals, they also have the special knowledge, training and facilities that you need to have teeth that look and feel just like your own.


We will consult with you to determine where and how your implant should be placed. Depending on your specific condition and the type of implant chosen, your periodontist will create a treatment plan tailored to meet your needs.

General Parts of a Dental Implant


A natural tooth has two main parts:








Root : which is in the bone and holds the tooth in place


Crown : the visible teeth part most people think of as the tooth










A dental implant is a titanium screw that is carefully positioned into the jawbone to act as a foundation for supporting artificial teeth, crowns, bridges or dentures.


A dental implant can be viewed very smiliar to that of a natural tooth. It has following components
               
                                     
Implant Posts: An implant post is a titanium "screw" surgically inserted into the bone of the jaw that act as a replacement root for the missing tooth. Implant posts are normally threaded on its external surface and the internal aspect of the implant is usually a hollow well with screw threads. Titanium is chosen for this purpose because titanium is inert, biocompatible and integrates with the surrounding jaw bone with minimal risk of infection.


Abutment : An abutment acts as the "stump" that holds the crown or false tooth that is screwed into the implant posts.


Crown : The crown is the visible false tooth of the implant restoration. Crowns on implants resembles a crown on natural tooth in almost every way. Crowns on implants can be porcelain fused to metal crowns or full ceramic crowns.




Reasons to replace missing teeth


There are many reasons why it's important to replace missing teeth:


Having all of your teeth can make you more self-confident. You don't worry that people notice that you have teeth missing.
When teeth are lost, the area of the jawbone that held those teeth starts to erode. Over time, you can lose so much bone that your jaw will need a bone graft to build up the bone in your jaw before your dentist can place implants or make a denture that fits properly.
Tooth loss affects how well you chew and what foods you are able to eat. Many people who have missing teeth have poor nutrition, which can affect overall health.
The loss of teeth can change your bite, that is the way your teeth come together. Changes in your bite can lead to problems with your jaw joint, called the temporomandibular joint.
Losing teeth can lead to changes in your speech, which also can affect your self-confidence.
The key to the success of all implants is a process called osseointegration, in which the bone in the jaw bonds with the implant. Titanium is a special material that the jawbone accepts as part of the body. The ability of titanium to fuse with bone was discovered accidentally. In 1952, a scientist named Per-Ingvar Brånemark was using titanium chambers screwed into bones as part of his research to discover how bone healed after an injury. When he tried to remove the titanium chambers, he found they had become bonded to the bone. This discovery led Dr. Brånemark to do further research into how titanium implants might work.




Dental Implants Versus Alternatives 


Depending on your particular problem, implants can be more expensive than the alternatives (dentures or bridge).


While the upfront cost for implants can be more than for other types of restorations, the investment can pay off in the long run. You do not necessarily need an implant for every missing tooth. Your dentist can discuss how many implants you will need. Dental implants are the effective replacement for lost teeth that place into your jaw to hold a false tooth or bridge. As anchors in the jawbone, dental implants form a stable foundation for permanent attachment of the crown; Dental Implants are ideal option for people in good general oral health who lost a tooth or teeth.


Dental Implants are more teeth saving than traditional crown and bridge, grinding of adjacent teeth does not take place, and loss of bone tissue by atrophy is prevented, since implants, as "artificial dental roots", transmit the chewing forces into the jawbone. A single implant as root substitute is the most elegant way of achieving a cosmetically ideal closure of the gap.In completely edentulous jaws, dental implants are a secure fixation method for removable full dentures and so spare the patients the usual disadvantages of conventional "False teeth" and allow you speak and eat with comfort not worries about misplaced dentures. Other benefits of implants include:


Feel— Because implants are imbedded in your bone, they feel more like your natural teeth than bridges or dentures.
Convenience — You will not need to worry about denture adhesives or having your dentures slip, click or fall out when you speak.
Nutrition — You will be able to chew better with implants. Chewing can be difficult with regular dentures, especially ones that don't fit perfectly. A regular upper denture also covers your palate, which can reduce your sense of taste.
Self-esteemecause implants are so much like your natural teeth, you will think about them less. Your self-esteem and confidence will be improved because you will not have to worry about denture problems or people noticing that you have missing teeth. Regular dentures also can affect your speech, which can make you less self-confident when talking with others.

Types of Dental Implants


There are three basic types of implants available at our dental clinic. In certain cases, conventional or immediate implants may be followed by immediate loading of crowns and bridges known as immediate loaded implants.




Conventional Implants
Immediate Implants
Immediate Load Implants




The type of dental implants selected will be dependent on the patients' specific needs and general dental condition. A panoramic x-ray and/or CT scan is usually required to evaluate the amount of bone, determine the space available and for a thorough examination to diagnosing the options best suited for each case.


There are a variety of dental implant systems available on the market. We use all the major dental implant systems at our clinic.


Who Is an Implant Candidate?

If you're interested in replacing your missing teeth, or a single missing tooth, dental implants may be an option for you. Not everybody, however, is a good candidate for implants.

A good candidate should have the following:

• Healthy, disease-free gum tissues The remainder of the teeth and gums needs to be stable in order to put in dental implants which are likely to work. If there are other areas of the mouth with dental decay, broken teeth, or gum disease these will need to be treated first before implants are placed.

• Enough dense, healthy jawbone in a mouth Without the right amount of bone in the right place, it is difficult to place implants. In cases where sufficient bone is not available a range of grafting techniques can be used.

• Keeping the gums and bone around the Implant healthy The success of implants can depend on the ability of the patient to keep their teeth and gums clean. We need to be sure this will take place before implants are placed. We will always advise you on how to care for your mouth to allow you to have implants, and also how to care for your new teeth. Your commitment will be to follow our advice and should return regularly to your dentist for checkups, because any problems that might threaten the health of the implant must be corrected.

Some people may not be good candidates for implants.
They include:

Young patients whose jawbones have not developed completely
Pregnant women
Heavy smokers — Smoking impedes healing in the mouth and can reduce the likelihood that implants will be successful.
Alcohol or substance abusers
Patients who have received high-dose irradiation of their head or neck
People with chronic diseases or systemic problems, including high blood pressure, diabetes, connective-tissue diseases, hemophilia and significant immune deficiencies, among others — You still may be a good candidate for implants even if you have one of these conditions. It depends on the extent and severity of the condition.
Patients who take certain medications such as steroids or drugs that suppress the immune system
People who severely grind or clench their teeth — These habits can place too much pressure on the implants and increase the risk of failure.
We can evaluate you to see if you would be a good candidate to receive implants.

Evaluation Process

Implant therapy involves a team that includes the surgeon (usually an oral surgeon or a periodontist) who places the implant or implants, and the restorative dentist (a general dentist or prosthodontist) who specializes in making crowns and bridges. The restorative dentist will make the crowns, bridges or dentures that will be supported by the implant or implants. The first step in your treatment is to make an appointment with us for an evaluation. 

Your initial evaluation will include an examination of your mouth and teeth and a thorough review of your medical and dental histories. You mouth will be X-rayed, and you might have a computed tomography (CT) scan, which will provide information on your bone density (how much bone you have in your jaw) and the shape of your jaw.

Finally, we will discuss the options available to you, talk about the procedure, and its cost and possible complications. We will work with you to develop a treatment plan that is customized to your particular needs and preferences.

    TIME REQUIREMENTS:

 We need one appointment for the procedure of placement of implants. We place all the implants in the same appointment. Afterwards, the final teeth can be placed either immediately or after a wait of 10-12 weeks.


This decision depends upon the clinical and radiographic assessment of the bone condition, the area of mouth where the implants are to be placed and the general medical history of the patient.


Generally, if we decide to go for the immediate loading implants, we can finish all the procedures in a week’s time. Otherwise, the patient needs to return for a follow-up visit for the placement of final teeth. This time for the second visit is at minimum 8-10 weeks time but can be after 3 months, 6 months or one year or longer depending upon the patient’s convenience.


 Dental Implants FAQ




Dental implant surgery is an option to get artificial teeth. Learn about the surgical process, types of artificial teeth, and benefits and risks of the procedure. 


Here's a look at the dental implant surgery procedure questions.


What is implant dentistry?


A Implant dentistry is the branch of dentistry that involves installing an artificial tooth into a patient's jaw in order to replace or restore a missing tooth.


Is dental implant surgery for me?


Dental implants aren't the same thing as artificial replacement teeth. Dental implants are actually the threaded metal cylinders that serve as the roots of missing teeth. The implant, sometimes called a post or cylinder, is surgically implanted in the jawbone beneath the gum tissue. An abutment, or extension, is attached on top of the metal cylinder. Finally, a realistic-looking artificial tooth (crown) is attached to the abutment, creating a three-piece device that completes your smile. You may have one tooth replaced with dental implant surgery or many.
Most healthy adults with missing teeth are able to have dental implants. Your dentist, oral and maxillofacial surgeon or periodontist can help you decide if dental implants are a good option for you.


In general, dental implants may be right for you if you:


Have one or more missing teeth
Have a jawbone that's reached full growth
Have adequate bone to secure the implants, or are able to have a bone grafting procedure
Have healthy oral tissues
Don't have health conditions that will impair bone healing
Are unable or unwilling to wear dentures. We now offer Single Day Implants for denture wearers. 
Want to improve your speech


Can Anyone Get Dental Implants?


In most cases, anyone healthy enough to undergo a routine dental extraction or oral surgery can be considered for an implant procedure. Patients should have healthy gums and enough bone to hold the implant. They also must be committed to good oral hygiene and regular dental visits. Heavy smokers, people suffering from uncontrolled chronic disorders – such as diabetes or heart disease – or patients who have had radiation therapy to the head/neck area need to be evaluated on an individual basis. If you are considering implants, talk to your dentist to see if they are right for you.


Is the concept of dental implants a new one?


A Modern implantology began in the United States at the beginning of the 20th century. However, popularity really grew in the 1980’s with the increased success of the titanium cylinder. Since then, many brand name implants with minor variations have been approved.


Why are the screws made of titanium?


Because titanium has the unique property of fusing with the bone tissue through a process of integration, and therefore becomes like a part of the body in the process. This gives the dental implant its extreme strength of attachment.


How is dental implant surgery done?


Placement of dental implants and artificial teeth involves surgical procedures usually done in several stages. The entire process takes three to nine months, or sometimes even longer. That may sound daunting, but a lot of that time is spent on healing and waiting for the growth of new bone in your jaw. Click here to learn more about the complete dental implant placement procedure.


When is the bone grafting required?


If your jawbone isn't thick enough or is too soft, you may need bone grafting before you can proceed with dental implant surgery. That's because the powerful chewing action of your mouth exerts great pressure on your bone, and if it can't support the implant, the surgery to replace your teeth would likely be a failure. A bone graft can create a much more solid base for the implant.


With bone grafting, a piece of bone is removed from another part of your body, such as your hip, and transplanted to your jawbone. The transplanted bone will grow, but it may take six to nine months to grow enough new bone to support a dental implant. In some cases, you may need only minor bone grafting that can be done at the same time as the implant surgery. The condition of your jawbone determines how you can proceed.




What happens after dental implant surgery?


Whether you have dental implant surgery in one stage or multiple stages, you may experience some of the typical discomforts associated with any type of dental surgery. These may include:


Swelling of your gums and face
Bruising of your skin and gums
Pain at the implant site
Minor bleedingVery rarely, stiffness of your jaw muscles may occur, or an inability to fully open your mouth. When these do occur, they're usually a result of passing a surgical needle through jaw muscle.
If swelling, discomfort or any other problem gets worse in the days after surgery, contact your implant surgeon. He or she may prescribe pain medications or antibiotics.


After each stage of surgery, you may need to eat soft foods for five to seven days. Typically, stitches that dissolve on their own are used. If your stitches aren't self-dissolving, your doctor removes them in about 10 days.


How do I Make my dental implant surgery a success?


Most dental implants are successful. Still, you can help your dental work — and remaining natural teeth — last longer if you:


Practice exceptional oral hygiene. Just as with your natural teeth, implants, artificial teeth and gum tissue must be kept clean. Specially designed brushes, such as an interdental brush that slides between teeth, can help clean the nooks and crannies around teeth, gums and metal abutments.
See your dentist regularly. Schedule dental checkups every six months to one year to ensure the health and proper functioning of your implants.
Avoid damaging habits. Don't chew hard items, such as ice and hard candy, which can break your crowns — or your natural teeth. Avoid tooth-staining tobacco and caffeine products. Get treatment if you grind your teeth.


When dental implant surgery doesn't work?


In some cases, dental implants don't work. Usually that happens when the bone fails to fuse sufficiently to the metal implant cylinder. In this case, the implant is removed, the bone is cleaned up, and you can try the procedure again in a month or two.


In addition, the implant may become loose. If this happens, the implant can be removed and replaced with a new one.


What factors contribute to the long term success of dental implants? 


A Long-term success depends on multiple factors. Firstly, success will depend on the quality and quantity of one. The better the bone and the more available, the greater the chance of long-term success. Secondly, the experience and ability of the dental surgeon will be a factor. As with any surgical procedure, there is no substitute for the experience and individual talent of the dentist. And finally, the quality of the restoration placed on top of the implant will play a big role in long-term success. If the design of the implant crowns or overdentures are poorly constructed, and biting forces are not balanced, even the best-placed dental implant will have a compromised survival rate.


How Painful Are Dental Implants?


Most people who have received dental implants say that there is very little discomfort involved in the procedure. Local anesthesia can be used during the procedure, and most patients report that implants involve less pain than a tooth extraction. After the dental implant, mild soreness can be treated with over-the-counter pain medications


Are there any age limitations for dental implants?


No. Any person at any age can have dental implants as long as there is enough bone available in which to place the implants.


How often will I need to have my implants checked?


The success of your implants will depend greatly on how well you maintain them. They will need to be professionally cleaned by a hygienist and examined by your implant dentist every three to four months. This hygienist should be trained in the specific procedure of maintaining dental implants. Also, brushing and flossing daily is absolutely necessary for long-term success.


When can I return to work after implant surgery? 


You can go to work the next day, unless some particular surgical circumstance arises. Your implant dentist will discuss all postoperative instructions with you. 


Will my implant teeth work as well as natural teeth?


While nothing works as well as a full set of natural healthy teeth, implants provide the next best thing. Generally, patients are not aware they even have implants after the short healing period. The implant replacement teeth looks, feels, and function in a manner that allows people to forget they have implants.


Will implants last a lifetime?


Few things last forever. Every case depends on the individual patient. Generally, the current overall dental health of the patient and the condition of the bone structure remaining in the jaws are important factors in determining long-term success rates. Of course, everyone needs regular visits to their dentists, and this is particularly important for dental implant patients.


I like my dentures, but they move ?


Implants can be used as retention for your existing dentures, eliminating movility and improving your chewing ability.


When should I start this treatment ?


As soon as you loose a tooth, otherwise the bone starts shrinking.


What if I have gum disease ?


It will need to be controlled, and remove teeth with poor prognosis before placing the implants, improving your esthetics and function.


 Are implants difficult to clean ?


No more difficult than your original teeth.




Which is the Best Type of Dental Implant?


There are many different brands of implants with some being more expensive than another. Because it is something that is inserted in your body and can be expensive, complicated and bad for you health if it goes bad, the bigger brand names are recommended. Brand names like Astra, ITI, Straumann, and NobelBiocare to name the biggest.


What is the Most Important Part of a Dental Implant?


By far, the most important part of getting a dental implant is the dentist you choose. Sometimes one dentist will place and restore the implant while other times one dentist will place the implant and another will restore the implant with a crown. The quality, experience and training of the dentist is the most important element in your care. A dentist that is a Master of the Academy of General Dentistry would be one of the very best selections possible.


Can anyone get a Dental Implant?


Almost anyone can have a dental implant but a few health problems need to be considered. Smoking, diabetes, weak jawbone, osteoporosis, dry mouth and other medical problems that prohibit complete healing can be contraindications for dental implants.


How do I care for my Dental Implant?


You care for your dental implant just like a natural tooth. You need to brush, floss and water pik around the implant twice per 24 hour period.


Will others know I have dental implants ?


Today's implant treatment enables you to have your new teeth look, feel and function like your own. Even though others will be unaware you have dental implants, many patients are so pleased they tell everyone they know.


Does Insurance Cover the Cost of Dental Implants?


In general, implants are not covered by dental insurance in USA at this time. Coverage under your medical plan may be possible, depending on the insurance plan and/or cause of tooth loss. Detailed questions about your individual needs and how they relate to insurance should be discussed with your dentist and your insurance provider. You may be able to get reimbursed for portions of your dental treatement from your dental insurance provider. Please check with your insurance company.


Where do dental implants work?


Dental implants replace the form and function of missing teeth. They support replacement teeth in virtually the same way that your natural tooth root supports your natural teeth.


Various replacement options are possible:


Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth, so that grinding down or altering adjacent teeth is no longer necessary. 
Dental implants can be used as anchors to support a fixed bridge.
Dental implants can support loose teeth by being splinted to them.
Dental implants can support replacement teeth for an entirely toothless jaw 
Dental implants can provide stability for a complete denture, thereby eliminating unsightly moving and clicking associated with dentures 


Dental Implants are actually an amazing procedure, actually giving you a second chance for your teeth! 



Advantages of Dental Implants



Stop the bone loss that can lead to premature aging.


Losing one or more of your teeth starts a chain of events that can have dire physical and cosmetic consequences.  The most obvious result is a gap in your smile. Less obvious is the loss of chewing function and the inability to eat a complete diet that can result from tooth loss. While these are certainly serious issues, a potentially bigger problem lies hidden beneath the surface: bone loss.


Your jawbone needs the chewing action of the teeth to stimulate it and keep it strong.  Otherwise it will begin to disappear (atrophy) in the same manner that the unused muscles beneath a cast supporting a broken bone get smaller. Without the support of your teeth and facial bones, your face will begin to look prematurely aged. The good news is that tooth replacement with dental implants offers a solution to help prevent bone loss.

• Improved oral health


When an individual has lost their teeth, usually a denture or bridges can be made. Though bridges and dentures can serve us satisfactorily, Implants provide better support and usually results in more comfortable and stable replacement teeth. It provides better chewing efficiency and allows us to have permanent fixed teeth without trimming our own natural teeth for support, or having to remove the teeth every day. Implants also slow down the shrinkage of our jaw bone which occurs as a result of tooth loss.


• Improved Quality Of Life


Dental implants will allow you to once again speak and eat with comfort and confidence! They are secure and offer freedom from the irksome clicks and wobbles of dentures. They'll allow you to say goodbye to worries about misplaced dentures and messy pastes and glues.


• Enhanced Appearance


Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth! Since dental implants integrate into the structure of your bone, they prevent the bone loss and gum recession that often accompany bridgework and dentures, helping to preserve your natural facial contours. No one will ever know that you have a replacement tooth.


• Tooth-saving


Dental implants don't sacrifice the quality of your adjacent teeth like a bridge does because neighboring te eth are not altered to support the implant. More of your own teeth are left untouched, a significant long-term benefit to your oral health!


• An Investment In Yourself


Although dental implants may sometimes have a higher initial cost, when all the ongoing expenses of other treatment options are added up, most people would agree that implants are more than worth it! The success rate of dental implants is highly predictable. They are considered an excellent option for tooth replacement.







Placing a dental Implant
The first step is the placement of the titanium dental implants into the jawbone. Usually, the office procedure takes about an hour for one implant and no more than two to three hours for multiple implants. You may be offered sedation or intravenous medications. Then, a local anesthetic will be administered to numb the areas where the implants will be placed. After you are comfortable, a small incision is made into the gum tissue, revealing the bone into which the implant will be placed. Using special instruments, a socket is created, carefully avoiding damage to the bone. The titanium dental implant is then inserted into the socket. Finally, if necessary, sultures will be used to secure the incision.
The dental implants will remain covered underneath the gum for approximately 3 to 6 months. During this time, the jawbone bonds with the implant. This process is known as osseointegration. below provide more details below.


During the healing process, a temporary tooth replacement option can be worn over the implant site
1. An incision is made in the gum where the implant will be placed.
2. A hole is drilled in the bone.
3. The implant is placed into the hole in the bone.
4. The incision is stitched closed.
5. After healing, a new incision is made over the implant and another component, called an abutment, is screwed on top. The abutment is used to support a crown. A temporary abutment, called a healing abutment, usually is placed before a final abutment.
6. The final step of the process is the creation and placement of your new teeth, called crowns. Depending on the number and complexity of your crowns, this may require several fittings. So it may take one or two months to complete the restoration process. With cosmetic dentistry techniques that ensure optimal size, shape, color and fit, they will blend with your facial characteristics, while providing support needed for a natural appearance.The crown, which is made to look like a natural tooth, is cemented or screwed onto the abutment.







mplant Placement Options

 

Dental implants can last a lifetime with proper placement by a periodontist and diligent patient maintenance.
Replacing a Single Tooth
If you are missing a single tooth, one implant and a crown can replace it. A dental implant replaces both the lost natural tooth and its root.


What are the advantages of a single-tooth implant over a bridge?

A dental implant provides several advantages over other tooth replacement options. In addition to looking and functioning like a natural tooth, a dental implant replaces a single tooth without sacrificing the health of neighboring teeth. The other common treatment for the loss of a single tooth, a tooth-supported fixed bridge, requires that adjacent teeth be ground down to support the cemented bridge.

Because a dental implant will replace your tooth root, the bone is better preserved. With a bridge, some of the bone that previously surrounded the tooth begins to resorb (deteriorate). Dental implants integrate with your jawbone, helping to keep the bone healthy and intact.
In the long term, a single implant can be more esthetic and easier to keep clean than a bridge. Gums can recede around a bridge, leaving a visible defect when the metal base or collar of the bridge becomes exposed. Resorbed bone beneath the bridge can lead to an unattractive smile. And, the cement holding the bridge in place can wash out, allowing bacteria to decay the teeth that anchor the bridge.




Replacing Several Teeth
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.


 


Replacing All of Your Teeth - Dental Implant Supported Dentures

If you are missing all of your teeth, an implant-supported full bridge or full denture can replace them. Dental implants will replace both your lost natural teeth and some of the roots.

Implants Securing a Denture

Advantages of implant-supported full bridges and implant-supported dentures over conventional dentures

Dental implants provide several advantages over other teeth replacement options. In addition to looking and functioning like natural teeth, implant-supported full bridges or dentures are designed to be long lasting. Implant-supported full bridges and dentures also are more comfortable and stable than conventional dentures, allowing you to retain a more natural biting and chewing capacity.
In addition, because implant-supported full bridges and dentures will replace some of your tooth roots, your bone is better preserved. With conventional dentures, the bone that previously surrounded the tooth roots begins to resorb (deteriorate). Dental implants integrate with your jawbone, helping to keep the bone healthy and intact.
In the long term, implants can be more esthetic and easier to maintain than conventional dentures. The loss of bone that accompanies conventional dentures leads to recession of the jawbone and a collapsed, unattractive smile. Conventional dentures make it difficult to eat certain foods.
Why should you consider dental implants to support your dentures?
Over time, as you wear your denture, you continually lose the boney structure that supports your soft tissues. Because your soft tissues actually make contact with your dentures, they too will start to recede with the bone, this will leave you in a continuous state of adjustment, discomfort, and difficulty with everyday functions like; speaking, chewing, and especially smiling.

Implant supported dentures provide tremendous support and fixation so you can comfortably speak, chew, and smile.
They keep your upper and lower jaw bone from receding which prevents facial shape changes like the "shrunken" look.



Implants are placed in the jaw as anchors for artificial teethProcedure

First, implants, which looks like screws or cylinders, are placed into your jaw. Then, over the next two to six months, the implants and the bone are allowed to bond together to form anchors for your artificial teeth. During this time, a temporary teeth replacement option can be worn over the implant sites.

Often, a second step of the procedure is necessary to uncover the implants and attach extensions. These small metal posts, called abutments, along with various connecting devices that allow multiple crowns to attach to the implants, complete the foundation on which your new teeth will be placed. Your gums will be allowed to heal for a couple of weeks following this procedure.
New teeth will snap on and off round ball anchors There are some implant systems (one-stage) that do not require this second step. These systems use an implant which already has the extension piece attached. Your periodontist will advise you on which system is best for you.
Depending upon the number of implants placed, the connecting device that will hold your new teeth can be tightened down on the implant, or it may be a clipped to a bar or a round ball anchor to which a denture snaps on and off.

Full bridges or dentures attached to implantsFinally, full bridges or full dentures will be created for you and attached to your implants or the connecting device. After a short time, you will experience restored confidence in your smile and your ability to chew and speak.

 


 


 





Dental Implants Costs
WHAT COSTS ARE ASSOCIATED WITH DENTAL IMPLANTS?


We have some specials going on right now for our new dental implant patients!!


Dental implant fees vary from case to case. Patients can expect individual quotes based on their specific needs. Here are a few things that impact cost of dental implants and may be beyond the control of the treating doctor.


1) Cost of dental implant surgery


Because dental implant surgery requires a team of professionals and the surgery requirements can vary from case to case, the implant cost is differet for each person. If a patient requires additional things such as bone regeneration and sinus elevation, cost of dental implants can increase. The surgical phase may require initial bone grafts if there is insufficient bone. In the past, many patients simply were unable to have implants placed because of insufficient bone. Now with advanced techniques implants are again a viable option.





2) Type/Brand of Dental Implant


Basic dental implant pricing and fees varies based on type of implant system or brand you pick.





3) Cost of the crown (tooth placed at the top of the post)





4) Consider the potential of several implants and several crowns





5) Potential use of synthetic bone material during surgery





6) The Location of the Implant (which tooth)




Some areas of the mouth are much more difficult to work on than others. The cost for a canine will be different from the cost of an incisor and that of a molar. The more difficult the area of the mouth is to work on, the more time it will require to do the procedure and the more labor it will involve - so in turn the price will go up.


Interestingly, most people assume that dental implant treatment is more expensive than alternative methods of tooth replacement. In reality, dental implants are more cost effective other methods of tooth replacement. The basic reason for this cost differential is due to the fact that other treatments require extensive repairs, replacements, and procedures to preserve the integrity of facial structures and prevent additional tooth loss compared to dental implants. In other words, additional procedures will probably be necessary in the future to treat the teeth that were cut down, repair the resulting bone defects, or replace the initial bridge. For Example, One bridge replacement and a procedure to repair the bone defect could increase the total cost of treatment in a 10- to 15-year period.


Please contact us for an estimate.





Dental Implant Options after removal of all teeth
For the treatment of the complete jaw with implants after the removal of all the teeth, there are a number of options that can be worked out for the patients depending upon the bone condition, requirements and demands of the individual patient.

Option 1:Fixed bridges with implants

Old dentures may not be worn until adjustments have been made. Early insertion of dentures may delay or affect healing

Care for Dental Implants


Dental implants require the same care as real teeth, including brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups:


Brush after eating and before bedtime around the implant with a soft toothbrush
Floss at least once to twice a day. Use the proxy brush or floss threader to remove plaque under and around these areas to maintain good oral hygiene. Buildup of food debris and plaque on your teeth and gums can become infected.
Rinse with fluoride rinse before bed. Swish the fluoride rinse vigorously in your mouth for at least one minute. Do not swallow any of the rinse and do not eat or drink anything for 30 minutes
Be careful about chewing toffees, gum, grainy rolls and tough food in this area
See your dentist for regular professional check-ups and cleanings







IMMEDIATE IMPLANTS DETAILS

Dental ImplantS are artificial tooth roots on which a crown can be placed to maintain esthetics and chewing function. As over time people loose their teeth due to dental decay, gum diseases etc. and their chewing ability generally goes off, and then they look for different tooth replacement options.

I have never ever read a blog on implpants, dentures and fixed bridges that is so much in detail! Must say a precise and detailed information which a even a novice can understand. You have out some serious efforts into this man.
I went ahead with fixed bridges for my father who's age is now 65 and he seems to be just fine post treatment and can chew and eat properly.
