Are you missing a tooth, or do you need a bad tooth replaced? Tooth Implants are currently the best alternative to a missing tooth. Essentially an implant is a titanium screw which is gently placed in the jaw bone to replace the root of a lost natural tooth.
There are many benefits to using an all-ceramic crown for example; when both the tooth and root are damaged, the best permanent replacement is a dental implant in conjunction with a ceramic crown. This solution both looks and functions just like a natural tooth.
If you have lost all of your teeth and are looking for a healthy, long-term solution we can help. Implant dentistry has allows us to provide you with solutions to tooth loss that are more comfortable, more sustainable and better for your oral health than anything previously available.
A full arch restoration is the placement of usually four to six implants and a full arch of prosthetic teeth being fabricated to match your mouth and existing teeth. This treatment does take more planning and the treatment time is longer than single or multiple tooth replacement treatments.
Similar to single tooth replacement, it does take a number of months (between 3 to 6 months) for your jaw to heal around the implants. Once this is done the posts are attached and then, once your gums have healed, the full arch of prosthetic teeth are attached to the dental implants.
Dental implants are becoming an accepted treatment for replacing missing teeth. In many cases, they may be preferable to the alternatives of a bridge or partial denture. However placement of dental implants requires careful evaluation and consideration, especially with respect to the bone where the implant is placed.
A bone graft is the addition of bone, or bone-like material, in an effort to increase the volume of bone in the jaw. Typically, the bone is placed and heals before the implant can be placed. The healing period can vary, depending on the type of bone used.
There are many types of bone grafts, but they all fall into one of several categories:
- Autograft – bone used from the patient’s own body
- Allograft – bone from a genetically similar organism
- Xenograft – bone from a genetically dissimilar organism
- Synthetic – a synthetic biocompatible material
The type of bone graft that will be chosen will depend on the situation, and on the amount of bone required.
