WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.

TYPES OF DENTAL IMPLANTS

  • Endosteal (in the bone): This is the most commonly used type of implant. The various types include screws, cylinders or blades that are surgically placed into the jawbone. Each implant holds one or more prosthetic teeth. This type of implant is generally used as an alternative for patients with bridges or removable dentures.
  • Subperiosteal (on the bone): These are placed on top of the jaw with the metal framework’s posts protruding through the gum to hold the prosthesis. These types of implants are used for patients who are unable to wear conventional dentures and who have minimal bone height.

WHAT IS A DENTAL IMPLANT PROCEDURE LIKE?

This procedure is a team effort between you and us. Dr. Nguyen will consult with you to determine where and how your implant should be placed. Depending on your specific condition and the type of implant chosen, your periodontist will create a treatment plan tailored to meet your needs.
  • Replacing a Single Tooth   If you are missing a single tooth, one implant and a crown can replace it.
  • Replacing Several Teeth   If you are missing several teeth, implant-supported bridges can replace them.
  • Replacing All of Your Teeth   If you are missing all of your teeth, an implant-supported full bridge or full denture can replace them.
  • Sinus Augmentation   A key to implant success is the quantity and quality of the bone where the implant is to be placed. The upper back jaw has traditionally been one of the most difficult areas to successfully place dental implants due to insufficient bone quantity and quality and the close proximity to the sinus. Sinus augmentation can help correct this problem by raising the sinus floor and developing bone for the placement of dental implants.
  • Ridge Modification   Deformities in the upper or lower jaw can leave you with inadequate bone in which to place dental implants. To correct the problem, the gum is lifted away from the ridge to expose the bony defect. The defect is then filled with bone or bone substitute to build up the ridge. Ridge modification has been shown to greatly improve appearance and increase your chances for successful implants that can last for years to come.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER RECEIVING A DENTAL IMPLANT?

As you know, your own teeth require conscientious at-home oral care and regular dental visits. Dental implants are like your own teeth and will require the same care. In order to keep your implant clean and plaque-free, brushing and flossing still apply!

After treatment, we will work closely with you to develop the best care plan for you. Follow-up visits will be scheduled to monitor your implant, teeth and gums to make sure they are healthy.

No waiting, she was ready for me. Good cleanliness and comfortable. A thorough cleaning. Hi-tech ability to make crowns in one sitting. Many dentists require weeks and sometimes multiple fittings. MP Dental can provide a crown in one day.
