MULTIPLE TEETH


Replacing multiple teeth using dental implants with individual crowns or with an implant-supported fixed bridge gives your teeth a level of fit, feel and functionality that is not possible with other treatment options. The process is often completed over multiple visits:
Consultation and planning, including initial exam, imaging of your teeth, questions about your dental and medical history, and discussion of your treatment options. Placement of the dental implants that will be used to support your replacement teeth. Temporary teeth can be placed while the dental implant integrates with your natural bone to form a strong foundation for your replacement teeth. Most people return to work the next day, and any discomfort can typically be treated with commonly used pain medication. Placement of the abutments, or a small extension that will help connect your replacement teeth, on top of each implant, if needed. Placement of a fixed, implant-supported bridge, or custom-made replacement teeth (crowns).

People may be missing teeth for many reasons. A single missing tooth can be a distraction from the whole of your lovely smile. Luckily, there is a permanent and aesthetically pleasing solution to this problem. Dental implants are ideal for either people who need to replace only a few teeth, as they don't require any alterations be made to the surrounding teeth, or  whoever has lost all teeth and the whole jaw will be reconstructed on only 4-6 implants in each jaw (ALL ON 4 concept).

​​​All Teeth (Full Arch)

Traditional replacement of a complete set of upper or lower teeth (arch) using a dental implant is completed over multiple visits.
Consultation and planning, including initial exam, imaging of your teeth, questions about  your dental and medical history, and discussion of your treatment options.
Placement of the dental implants that will be used to support your replacement teeth. Temporary teeth may be placed while the dental implant integrates with your natural bone to form a strong foundation for your replacement tooth. Most people return to work the next day, and any discomfort can typically be treated with commonly used pain medication.
Placement of the abutments, or connectors placed on, or built into, the top of the implant to help connect your replacement teeth, if needed. Additional connecting devices needed to attach multiple replacement teeth to the implants also may be placed at this time.
Placement of custom-made individual replacement teeth or, most often, an implant-supported fixed bridge or implant-supported overdenture.

All-on-4: 

All-on-4 is an alternative approach to place a full arch (top or bottom set) of fixed, replacement teeth. Four dental implants are used to stabilize the replacement teeth. The All-on-4 concept involves placing implants in available bone, thereby avoiding the need for bone grafting.  Special abutments allow a temporary set of replacement teeth to be placed the same day and used with a modified diet while gum tissues heal and the implants integrate with natural bone. After about six months, the final bridge is then placed and the patient is able to resume a normal diet.  The all-on-four approach involves multiple appointments, typically including one or two consultation and planning visits, one to place the dental implants and temporary teeth, check-ups during the six month healing period, and another appointment to place the final bridge.

SINGLE TOOTH


There is no better, long-lasting option to restoring a missing tooth than a dental implant fitted with a crown. Traditional replacement of a single tooth using a dental implant is often completed over multiple visits:
Consultation and planning, including initial exam, imaging of your teeth, questions about your dental and medical history, and discussion of your treatment options.  Placement of the dental implant, a substitute for the missing natural tooth root, either with or without a built-in abutment (a connector placed on, or built into, the top of the implant) that will attach to the replacement tooth. A temporary tooth can be placed while the dental implant integrates with your natural bone to form a strong foundation for your replacement tooth. Most people return to work the next day. Placement of the abutment, if one wasn’t placed during the prior visit. 
Placement of a custom-made crown, or replacement tooth.
