implants



A single missing tooth

One of the front teeth known as the bicuspid is missing. Under conventional therapy, the healthy adjacent teeth might be prepped to fashion a 3-unit bridge.
Implant is placed.

An implant is placed in the site. It has been surgically placed at a slight angle to take advantage of available bone. The implant will be allowed to heal for several months. Following healing, the top of the implant is uncovered. A titanium post, in this case a fixed abutment, has been screwed into the implant body. The abutment is angled to allow easy completion of a restoration that is in alignment with the adjacent teeth.
Attaching the crown.

The replacement tooth or crown is cemented onto the abutment. An esthetic and functional restoration has been completed.
End result.

You should expect the new tooth to fit and function just like a natural tooth. Do your usual dental hygiene to keep the tooth and gum around it clean and healthy.



Several missing teeth

Three teeth are missing in the lower jaw. Conventional therapy might include a removable partial denture.


Implant is placed.


Two implants are placed in the sites of the missing teeth. The implants will be allowed to heal for several months.

Attaching the bridge.


Following healing, the final restoration is in place. It attaches to the abutments with screws, allowing the restoration to be periodically removed by your dentist for cleaning. This restoration offers more stability than a partial denture or long span bridge.

End result.


Your new teeth will handle all the pressure that your strong, natural back teeth did. You will have a stable and secure solution that allows you to eat what you want Eat a light meal the next day and have full function in just days.




Missing all teeth

All teeth are missing in the lower jaw. A full denture supported by the gum tissue might be utilized in conventional therapy.

Implant is placed.

Five implants are placed in the jaw. These implants will be allowed to heal for several months.

Attaching the bridge.


Following healing, the final restoration is seated onto the abutments with small screws. The restoration is stationary, but can be removed by your dentist if the need arises.


End result.


Your new teeth should be hard to tell from natural teeth. People who have had traditional dentures before getting a fixed bridge often describe this as an overwhelming and positive experience.
