Dental Implants

A dental implant is a surgical component that interfaces with the bone of the jaw or skull to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, denture, facial prosthesis or to act as an orthodontic anchor.

IMPLANT BRIDGES

An implant-supported bridge resembles a regular oral bridge, yet it is sustained by implants as well as not by all-natural teeth. In many cases, when an implant-supported bridge is used, one dental implant is positioned in the jawbone for each missing out on tooth. After that, the crowns are connected to each other to form one piece.

Implant-supported bridges and dentures also are much more secure and steady than traditional dentures, allowing you to preserve more natural biting and also eating capability. Your bone is a lot far better shielded because implant-supported bridges and also dentures will certainly replace a few of your missing out on tooth roots. With traditional dentures, the bone that formerly surrounded the tooth origin may start to deteriorate. Oral implants incorporate with your jawbone, aiding to keep the bone healthy and balanced as well as solid.

SINGLE TOOTH IMPLANT

Single-tooth implants can be utilized in people that are missing out on one or more teeth. The single tooth dental implant is positioned by surgery in the top or reduced jaw, where it replaces your missing tooth’s root(s).

A solitary tooth dental implant does not call for the grinding down and the crowning of the adjacent all-natural teeth. The single tooth dental implant is placed in the location of the missing out on tooth and essentially changes the all-natural tooth root. A crown is built on top of the oral implant, and none of the other teeth are affected. The bone in the location of the missing tooth is maintained and also does not decline. This is specifically vital if the missing tooth is located in the “aesthetic area”, or smile line. The single tooth implant functions just like a natural tooth and does not decay.

ALL ON 4 IMPLANTS

All-on-4 dental implants can support an entire arch of teeth making use of only 4 implants. This can be utilized on either the top or reduced jaw as well as immediately changes missing out on teeth which not just look and feel comparable to your all-natural teeth, yet feature usually additionally.

The titanium implants are anchored to the bone, and will ultimately fuse to the bone itself via a procedure called osseointegration, where they can inevitably become a permanent part of your mouth like all-natural teeth origins. Considering that the implants can commonly maximize existing bone in clients who qualify for this treatment, there is typically no need for a bone graft. Full collections of dentures are anchored to the 4 implants, which provide substantially much more security without the requirement for a separate dental implant to change each tooth.

IMPLANT SUPPORTED DENTURES

Implant dentures, also occasionally called implant-supported or implant-anchored dentures, are a type of oral appliance that is affixed to the top arc, lower arc, or both to replace missing teeth. The denture is protected by 4 to 6 dental implants, so a snug fit can be attained without the requirement for pastes, gels, or various other messy adhesives.

An implant-supported denture is utilized when an individual does not have any kind of teeth in the jaw, yet has enough bone in the jaw to sustain implants. An implant-supported denture has unique attachments that snap onto attachments on the implants.

There are two types of implant-supported dentures:

  • Bar-retained dentures: A thin metal bar that follows the curve of your jaw is attached to two to five implants that have been placed in your jawbone. Clips or other types of attachments are fitted to the bar, the denture or both. The denture fits over the bar and is securely clipped into place by the attachments.
  • Ball-retained dentures: Each implant in the jawbone holds a metal attachment that fits into another attachment on the denture. In most cases, the attachments on the implants are ball-shaped, and they fit into sockets on the denture.
