What is a Dental Implant?

A Dental implant is an artificial tooth root, or titanium fitting, that is surgically secured to the jawbone. The light and durable metal implant acts as an anchor for a false tooth or set of false teeth. Since the implant fuses to the bone, the attached artificial tooth, which is matched to the exact color of natural teeth, looks and feels completely authentic.

Ýmplants are ideal for people of all ages who have lost teeth due to injury, periodontal disease or other causes. A Dental implant can even replace a full set of missing teeth, certain types of bridges, and removable partial dentures.

The best implant candidates are those with healthy gums, good general oral health, a strong commitment to oral hygiene, and enough bone near the missing teeth for the implants to attach securely to the jaw.

 

Single Tooth Replacement

When both the tooth and root are damaged, the best permanent replacement is a dental implant in conjunction with a ceramic crown.

In this case, a so-called one-piece implant is used. This means that all components are installed as a single unit, resulting in immediately full functioning teeth,  minimized pain.

  • Immediately functioning teeth
  • Excellent esthetic result
  • Life long, stable solution

Course Of Treatment

Installing the New Tooth Step by Step

The course of treatment described here is one of several options available.

 

Before the procedure Installing the implant

1: Before the procedure

The examination includes one or more x-rays of the area to prepare for the procedure..

2: Installing the implant

The implant is installed. At this time, a temporary tooth is provided .The implant will need a few months to integrate with the jawbone before the next step is taken.

   
Attaching the new crown End Result

3: Attaching the new crown

The final step is the placement of the permanent ceramic tooth.

4: End result

The new tooth  functions just like a natural tooth. Usual dental hygiene to keep the tooth and gum around it clean is necessary.

Alternatives To An All-Ceramic Crown On Implant

Tooth-supported fixed bridge

Tooth-supported fixed bridge

A traditional bridge involves grinding down adjacent teeth to support the bridge. It is a stable solution with good aesthetics and function that is fairly easy to install. However, this alternative has two main disadvantages: continuous bone resorbtion in the edentulous area, and sacrificing healthy teeth on behalf of the bridge.

   
Removable partial denture

Removable partial denture

This is not a permanent alternative to a lost tooth. It is unstable and loosely attached, which affects both function and comfort. A removable partial denture is made of plastic – a material that can't create the same esthetic result as a ceramic crown. The benefits are few but do exist: adjacent teeth aren't affected. It is easily and quickly installed.

   
Resin-bonded bridge

Resin-bonded bridge

This alternative has some clear advantages: it is quickly installed, functions well and, since it is made of ceramic, it gives a high esthetic result. Moreover, natural healthy teeth aren't affected. But it is not very permanent. The resin-bonded bridge will eventually come off – probably after just a couple of years – and will then have to be reinstalled.

   

Multiple Tooth Replacement

Benefits with fixed bridge on implants:

In this case, when replacing three teeth in the far back of the mouth, a fixed bridge anchored to dental implants is the only fixed alternative. Traditional dentures can't offer the same stability or function.

Having dental implants replacing  lost back teeth will give new, unparalleled strength and stability that allows  to eat propally. It will also preserve  jawbone and facial appearance.

  • The only fixed alternative in this situation.
  • A stable, secure solution that allows eating propally.
  • Preserves  facial appearance and prevents bone loss

Treatment:

The process takes sevaral steps. It is normal to experience some minor bruising and swelling in the gum and soft tissue after surgery. Any discomfort is usually treated with an ordinary painkiller. The patient should expect to be able to work the next day.

Course Of Treatment (Exaple treatment)

Fixed Bridge - Step by Step

Before the procedure Installing the implant

1: Before the procedure

Three teeth at back end of the mouth are missing. The only real replacement alternative is installing a fixed bridge. The bridge contains all teeth in one piece and is anchored on dental implants.

2: Installing the implant

First, the implants are installed.

   
Attaching the new crown End Result

3: Attaching the new crown

The implants need to integrate with the jawbone before the permanent bridge is attached. This is normally done 2-6 months after the implant installation. The time will vary, depending on the teeth affected and the aesthetical demands.

4: End result

The new bridge will handle all the pressure that strong, natural back teeth did. .This is stable and secure solution.

   

Alternatives To Fixed Bridge

Removable partial denture

This alternative is often perceived as uncomfortable and a bit complicated to use. Function can’t be compared to that of a bridge. This denture is made of plastic and metal, which affects its look. However, the installation process is simple, and natural teeth are spared.

   

Full Arch Replacement

When all teeth are missing or in such condition that they need to be replaced, a fixed bridge anchored to dental implants is the best permanent solution

Before dental implants, there were no fixed solution available for people who lost all their teeth. Today, it is possible to replace a full jaw with dental implants and a fixed bridge that results in a permanent, stable and high esthetic solution.

  • Lets you eat and function like having natural teeth
  • A solid, stable solution that will serve you for life
  • Preserves your facial appearance and prevents bone loss

Treatment:

The treatment procedure and number of visits is largely dependent on the specific conditions.

Course Of Treatment(EXAMPLE)

Fixed Bridge - Step by Step

Before the procedure Installing the implant

1: Before the procedure

The dentist determines what needs to be done and prepares both himself and the patient for the coming treatment procedure.

2: Installing the implant

The first step is installing dental implants to replace the lost tooth roots. In this case, five implants are used. Temporary teeth are attached that enable patient to eat and function like normal while waiting for the permanent bridge to be installed.

3: Attaching the new crown

The final bridge is securely installed on top of the implants.

4: End result

 

   

Alternatives To Fixed Bridge

An alternative to a fixed bridge is a removable overdenture, which is anchored on implants. The old fashioned denture has many disadvantages and should be avoided if possible.

   

Removable, implant anchored overdenture

A removable full denture that is connected to either a ball or bar attachment, which in turn is anchored on two or more implants in the front part of the jaw.

The implants help to  keep the denture in place and provide better function and comfort.

   

Denture Full Removal

A denture that is loosely placed on top of the gum to cover the lost teeth.  

The disadvantages are many: discomfort in eating, poor esthetics, affected speech, and sore gums from denture movement. Moreover, a full denture placed in the upper jaw severely reduces the sense of taste.
