When you have missing teeth, an alternative solution to dentures is dental implants. While dentures are removable, dental implants provide permanent new teeth to restore your mouth’s function and appearance. Dental implants tend to offer a successful and lasting solution to the loss of some or all of your teeth.
We use implants for:
- Tooth Replacement
- Implant Dentures
An extraction is performed to remove a tooth, whether because of disease, crowding, or damage. When extractions are required, the area around the tooth will be numbed and your dentist will remove the tooth. A small amount of bleeding is normal, as your mouth will replace the removed tooth root by forming a blood clot in the area.
Caring for your mouth after an extraction is very important. Your dentist will outline how you should care for the area of the extraction. It is important to allow your mouth time to heal, so avoid activities like smoking, drinking through a straw, or eating foods that may aggravate the area.
Immediate Implant Placement
Recent research has shown that placing an implant immediately upon extraction of a natural tooth can be just as successful as the traditional method of delaying to provide time for the bone to heal. This method eliminates the need for a second surgery and can also reduce healing time.
Once the tooth is extracted and the implant is placed, a temporary tooth is set in at the initial time of surgery. With a high success rate and reduced number of visits, this method can be a great option for the right patient.
Full Arch Rehabilitation
This is a revolutionary concept providing patients with functioning teeth on dental implants in a single procedure. The patient will get complete support from Molar to Molar. The Implant placement is usually done at the time of extractions, and the patient goes home the same day with a temporary prosthesis. The patient will have a CT taking prior to surgery and have a computer guided implant placement guide fabricated. This merging of knowledge and experience achieves not only increased safety, but also a more precise implant placement. The patient will have a natural feeling beautiful esthetic smile.
