Single and Multiple Implant
Once your tooth are damaged and have no enough remaining structure to be restored by dental crown or cap, dental implant is considered the best solution for this situation. Dental implant will replace both root of this tooth in conjunction with a porcelain crown on top. This treatment will benefits both looks and functions just like a natural tooth. Dental implant allows you to speak, smile and eat with confidence. Unlike dental bridge or denture, these are replacements that can be inserted without affecting any of your remaining teeth. A dental implant is made of titanium and shaped like a screw. The dental implant is placed into the jawbone and serves as a secure root for the new tooth. The root anchors the tooth to your jawbone, acting as a foundation for the crown. Without the root, the bone around the missing tooth will gradually recede causing the remaining teeth to shift. Once the dental implant is in place, several different types of dental restorations, such as crowns, bridges or dentures, can be attached. Implants can be considered to replace a single tooth or multiple teeth. Often when the teeth on either side of the space are in good health, an implant may be the most conservative means of replacing the missing teeth because patient won’t loss healthy adjacent teeth to grinding out as a bridge.
All-on-4 (Two Trip)
For those who have lost all their teeth in an upper or lower jaw, the long-term problems are even greater. The bone shrinks after tooth loss. This causes the nerves to become exposed and the dentures will lack support. Loose fitting dentures can cause further problems and lead to sore gum tissue and additional pain. However, modern dentistry can help people to continue living in discomfort. All-on-4 Implant complete reconstruction of a patient’s mouth, by fitting a dental prosthesis attached onto four points on implants. These four implants acted as “pillars” to support 10 to 14 porcelain teeth or hybridge over denture. The protocol utilizes a simple guide for predictable and optimal positioning of four implants (six implants, if necessary, in the maxilla).
All-on-4 (One Trip)
All-on-4 one trip implant immediate function is a breakthrough in dentistry to help dentist place immediate teeth on implants after a few days of implant surgery. All-on-Four” technique allows doctors to place implants in patients with severe bone loss, who normally need a bone graft for implant placement. The use of the “All-on-Four” technique makes it possible for a dentist to achieve the complete reconstruction of a patient’s mouth. The technique was invented in Europe 10 year ago. It consists of the rehabilitation of the edentulous maxilla and mandible with fixed prosthesis by placing four implants in the anterior maxilla, where bone density is higher, allowing the highest success rate.
This technique can avoid bone graft procedures by implanting normal two or three anterior implant fixture and two posterior implants fixture that angled at approximately 45 degrees to avoid compromising the sinus cavity in the upper jaw and the nerve canal in the jaw. These four implants as “pillars” will support a fixed hybridge overdesnture with 12 to 14 teeth. Unlike traditional implants which patient need to wait for this implant fuse properly with jawbone 2 to 3 months, dentist can place immediately in a few days after surgery. However, this treatment is not for all candidate, dentist need to check bone quality and dentistry to confirm with you beforehand.
If you were told that you have not enough bone or not possible to do implant by bone graft technique. Zygomatic implant is your solution for patients. The development of the Zygoma implant presents a unique alternative for rehabilitating the severely resorbed maxilla, with only one surgical procedure and without the need for grafting. The placement of Zygoma dental implants bypasses the need to undergo bi-lateral sinus grafting and, because they provide excellent fixation, they can be loaded with a fixed bridge immediately following surgery. Zygoma implants offer patients an alternative to lateral sinus grafting with drastically reduced waiting times.
Sinus Lift and Bone graft
The sinus lift and bone graft are common technique of oral plastic surgery that is designed to increase the height of the upper maxillary jaw bone so that dental implants can be done. The maxillary sinuses are located behind the cheekbones. Very frequently the roots of the upper back teeth will protrude into these sinuses. Then when one or more of these teeth need to be removed there is not much supportive bone left between the maxillary sinus and the mouth. This is a problem for dentists and their patients because it means there is very little natural bone in which to anchor dental implant. In this procedure, dentist access patient’s sinus from the location of the missing upper teeth. The sinus membrane is then gently manipulated upward after which a bone grafting material is placed at the base of the sinus. Once, there is enough bone quality between the jaw and the bottom of the sinus the dentist can place dental implant fixture.
