Alternatives for Implants – Partially Edentulous

We present treatment alternatives to getting implants, their drawbacks, and the consequences of delaying treatment.

 

Diagnosing Bone Loss

One of the keys to the success of your implant is healthy jawbone. When bone in the jaw has been lost, it may not have enough height and width to securely anchor an implant.

 

Implant Augmentation Procedure

When your jawbone has receded or lost its shape, we can often augment it to replace missing bone and help new bone to grow. Depending on where bone loss has occurred, we’ll select the appropriate procedure, which can include sinus grafts, bone grafts, and ridge preservation.

 

Implant Bridge Procedure

When several neighboring teeth are missing, an implant-supported bridge is an excellent treatment for replacing them. Placing an implant-supported bridge generally involves several phases.

 

Implant Immediate Placement Procedure

When a tooth must be extracted, we can sometimes place an implant in the socket immediately after the tooth has been removed. Placing the implant immediately after an extraction generally involves several phases.

 

Implants Overdenture Lower Procedure

When all the teeth in an arch are missing, an excellent treatment for replacing them is a denture secured with implants. Depending on your situation, the denture may snap onto the implants in your jaw, or it may clip to a bar that’s attached to the implants.

 

Implants Overdenture Upper Procedure

When all the teeth in an arch are missing, an excellent treatment for replacing them is a denture secured with implants. Depending on your situation, the denture may snap onto the implants in your jaw, or it may clip to a bar that’s attached to the implants.

 

Mini Implant Procedure

If you have loose, uncomfortable dentures, stabilizing them with mini-implants can be an excellent solution. The dentures are held securely in place by narrow implants that have been placed in the jaw.

 

Post-op Instructions for a Fixed Implant

After final restorations have been placed on your implants, it’s important to follow these recommendations to ensure their long-term success. If we used anesthetic during the procedure, avoid chewing until the numbness from the anesthetic has completely worn off.

 

Post-op Instructions for a Removable Implant

Now that you’ve received your implant-retained denture, it’s important to follow these recommendations to ensure its success. To protect your implants and denture, avoid chewing ice or other hard objects.

Single Implant Procedure

When a tooth is missing, a dental implant with a crown is an excellent treatment for replacing it. Placing an implant generally involves several phases.

 

What is an Implant?

A dental implant is an excellent treatment for replacing missing teeth. Implants are small, titanium posts that replace the roots of the missing teeth. Custom-fitted artificial teeth are secured to the implants, which hold the teeth firmly in place.

 

Why a Single Implant?

When a tooth is missing, an implant can be a great choice for replacing it. An implant is a small titanium post that replaces the roots of a missing tooth and supports a custom-made crown.

 

Why Implants for Fully Edentulous Patients?

When all of the teeth in an arch are missing, implants can be an excellent choice for replacing them. Implants are small titanium posts that replace the roots of missing teeth and support custom-crafted replacement teeth.

 

Why Implants for Partially Edentulous Patients?

When several teeth are missing, implants can be a good choice for replacing them. Implants are small titanium posts that replace the roots of missing teeth and support custom-made crowns and bridges.
