Dental ImplantImplants are the modern way to replace missing teeth and have a hugely beneficial impact not only on your smiles, but on the overall quality of your life as well. The benefits that dental implants can have on your life will greatly be maximised with the help of your dental surgeon – and with the help of the best possible dental implant type for your specific implant needs.
A dental implant is a surgical Metallic or Ceramic component that interfaces with the bone of the upper or lower jaw to support a dental prosthesis such as a Crown, Bridge or Dentures.
In simple words, A Dental Implant is an artificial Tooth Root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement Tooth or Bridge or Dentures. In a short span, (around 12-18 months) it becomes the part of the bone itself.
The formulation of your dental implant treatment plan involves a healthy and comprehensive discussion with your dental surgeon about the entire implant procedure step by step. The type and/or brand of dental implant would also be discussed at this point. Different types of implants are available and are chosen according to your bone type keeping in mind your needs and goals.
The implant, which is made of Titanium Metal or Zirconia Ceramic, is fitted in bone where the tooth root would normally be. When fully integrated to the bone, a post (or abutment) is attached to the implant and a crown, bridge or denture is then placed over the abutment to replace the missing tooth or teeth.
Dental implants are fitted in-house at our Office by our Implantologist. Missing teeth often lose some of the surrounding soft tissue and bone. If this is a significant amount, soft tissue and/or bone grafting may also be required either at the same time as implant placement or beforehand. Grafting procedures are also carried out in-house at our office by our implant specialists. Your decision to have dental implants as solutions for your missing teeth problems will be one of the best choices you will ever make for yourself.
Those who consider having dental implants may be hesitant with the need to wait for a few weeks or months for the dental implants to fully be healed, before the prosthetic teeth can be attached; this period equates to a time when the patient will need to go toothless while waiting for the implants to be ready for the teeth replacements.
All on 4 dental implants provide those with missing teeth problems, with a chance to have brand new smiles that can be enjoyed after just a single visit to the dentist.
WHAT ARE ALL ON 4 DENTAL IMPLANTS?
All on 4 dental implants is a unique technique which uses four dental implants, positioned in such a way that the existing jaw bone structure is fully maximised. The four dental implants are then attached to permanent teeth replacements, providing effective solutions for missing teeth concerns.
ADVANTAGES OF ALL ON 4 DENTAL IMPLANTS
As the all on 4 dental implants technique uses and maximises the existing jaw bone structure of the patient, in most cases more complicated procedures like a bone grafting procedure are not necessary to complete the entire dental implant treatment. This results to fewer expenses, less discomfort, and less downtime for the patient.
After being attached to the jaw bone, the all on four dental implants can then be attached to a set of permanent teeth replacement within the same day – making it possible for a patient to go home with a brand new smile, after just one dental appointment. There is no need to wait for a few months for the implants to be healed before they can be attached to prosthetic teeth.
The all on four dental implants will be attached to the jaw bone using a technique that is minimally invasive – this makes it possible for dental implant treatment to be carried out without causing too much trauma to the patient, and will also shorten the time it takes for the patient to fully recover from the procedure.
The all on four implants technique is more cost effective compared to a traditional dental implants procedure. The lower cost is due to the minimally invasive treatment, the elimination of costlier and more complicated procedures, and the fewer dental visits needed to complete the entire dental implant treatment.
Mini Dental ImplantsMini dental implants can counter act the impact of constant use of dentures. Whilst dentures can provide quick solutions for missing teeth long term use can result to various problems; these problems include the discomfort of dentures rubbing against the soft tissues of the inner mouth when the dentures start to loosen, and embarrassment when the dentures move uncontrollably inside the mouth.
WHAT ARE MINI DENTAL IMPLANTS?
Mini dental implants are smaller in diameter when compared to traditional implants. The smaller diameter and size allow them to be used immediately after the placement procedure, usually to provide a firm anchor where dentures can be attached to (to prevent problems associated with ill fitting dentures).
Mini dental implants stabilise dentures with the use of ball attachments that are attached to the structure. The small diameter of will also be beneficial to those who have thin jaw bone ridges – where traditional dental implants may not be successfully placed..
Benefits of Mini Dental Implants
The small diameter of mini dental implants allow them to be placed using a minimally invasive procedure that does not necessitate the cutting open of gums, and stitching them up after the procedure. The minimally invasive procedure enables you to have very little to no downtime after the procedure, less pain or discomfort during and after the entire procedure, and less trauma after the entire treatment.
Mini dental implants can be used for cases when the patient does not have sufficient jaw bone structure to support traditional implants placement. Even if you have a thin jaw bone ridge, you can still enjoy the benefits often without having to undergo a complicated procedure, such as bone grafting, which can be more invasive and more expensive as well.
Mini dental implants can quickly be placed using a minimally invasive procedure – and the implants can immediately be used after the procedure is finished. This allows you to enjoy the benefits without having to wait for a few months for the implants to be healed or fully integrated with the surrounding tissues. Denture wearers can look forward to stabilised dentures immediately after the placement procedure.
The quick and minimally invasive procedure of placing the mini dental implants translates to a cheaper option, since there are no complicated (and more expensive) procedures necessary in terms of placement and since the mini implants can be placed efficiently in just a single visit to the dentist.
