Dental Implants

Dental Implants

Dental implants are the perfect solutions for patients who generally have good oral health who just happened to have lost a tooth or teeth. Tooth implants are so natural feeling and looking that patient\’s often forget that they ever lost a tooth.

Surgical Guides (Stents)

The success of implant-supported restoration requires detailed treatment planning and it involves the implant surgical guide(sometimes referred to as stent). Surgical guides are custom made to fit the patient’s anatomy.

To aid in placing the implant in the safest, predictable, and efficient manner, we construct clear acrylic implant surgical guides. These guides may be used in conjunction with either metal guide sleeve or the Barium Sulphate power.

Implant Supported Bridge

An implant-supported bridge is used when more than one tooth is missing. Just like an implant supported crown, it replaces teeth without support from adjacent natural teeth. With a fixed bridge or removable partial dentures, the bone that previously surrounded tooth root may begin to resorb. Dental implants integrate with your jawbone, helping to keep the bone healthy and intact.

Implant Supported Crown

An implant supported crown replaces single tooth without sacrificing the health of neighboring teeth. The teeth are left in their current state of health and are not linked as part of a larger restoration. Also, because a dental implant will replace the tooth root, the bone is better preserved.

Implant Restorations

 Two treatment options for implant restorations. Both treatments can be used predictably, but have their own advantages and disadvantages.

Cement-retained

Advantages:
– Independent on implant orientation/angulation
– Enhanced aesthetic

Disadvantages:
– Unknown retention
– May be difficult to remove

Screw-retained

Advantages:
– Predictable
– Easy to remove/re-tighten the screw
– No chance of leaving residual content

Disadvantages:
– Dependent on implant orientation/angulation
– Maybe less aesthetic
