Dental implants are the new standard of care for people with missing or broken down teeth. You no longer have to rely on dentures, bridges and other removable appliances. And that means that we can help anyone smile with confidence and eat comfortably.
WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS AND WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES?
Dental Implants are metallic elements, which are surgically put in, within the maxillary bones below the gums. Once in place, the dentist can utilize them in order to attach crowns or fix bridges that will replace lost teeth pieces. Dental implant replaces the root of a tooth and this allows not only comply with chewing for toothache functions of incision or bitten by anterior teeth, which possessed the patient of losing his dental pieces, but also cover the aesthetic aspect of showing a healthy mouth.
- Dental implants are an excellent alternative to replace conventional prostheses for the treatment of absence of teeth.
- Implants are manufactured in titanium, and are placed through a surgical procedure in the dental office.
- Implants provide functionality similar to the root of the missing, supporting the occlusal cargo safe and strong teeth, very close to the natural.
If restoration treatment involves a single tooth, an implant is placed, if it is necessary to restore more teeth fixed prosthesis (bridges) held by several implants may be recomended. You can also perform the rehabilitation of patients fully edentulous necessary placement of 2 to 4 implants(depending on the case), to perform the denture retention.
WHY USE DENTAL IMPLANTS?
Bone loss is the greatest enemy. When you lose a tooth, bone loses encouraging load, causing an increased reabsorption of the same. Facial features are impacted by tooth and bone loss. A collapsed facial profile, which is targeted on the lips and increases wrinkles around the mouth. This produces a rapprochement of the surrounding nose and chin areas.
Implants are fused to the jaw, the bone provides a stable support for the artificial teeth. Prostheses and placed bridges on implants do not glide or shift in the mouth, which is an important advantage for chewing and speech. This adaptation helps with bridges and prostheses (as well as the individual crowns placed on the implants) resulting in a more natural comfortable feel.
PHASES:Rehabilitation is performed in two phases:
- Surgical Procedure: is the placement of implant into the mouth.
- Restorative Phase: is made 4 to 6 months after the first phase, and is subdivided in turn into two-steps:
- Placement of the screw and healing: to allow the gum to shape properly and to insure that the implant is correctly received by the mouth.
- Taking impressions for laboratory review to insure proper results have been achieved. Followed by a rehabilitation period.
The duration of the second stage rehabilitation can vary 1-3 weeks depending on the complexity of the case and the prosthesis to perform.
