Also known as “immediate load” dental implants, these implants allow placement of a temporary tooth during the same appointment as your dental implant placement. This means you can walk out of the dental office with a new tooth in place. However, not everyone is a candidate for same-day implants; it depends on individual circumstances and bone quality.
This is a comprehensive treatment approach for patients who have severe dental problems that need extensive restoration or replacement of their teeth. It involves a combination of dental procedures like crowns, bridges, veneers, dental implants, and more to restore aesthetics and function to the patient’s mouth.
This is a technique used to support a fixed denture for either the upper or lower jaw using only four implants. The implants are placed in the anterior region of the jaw, where bone density is higher. The back implants are typically angled to achieve maximum support from the existing bone. This method can be particularly useful for patients who have lost a lot of bone and are looking for a full arch restoration without bone grafting.
Unlike traditional dentures that rest on the gums, implant-supported dentures are anchored by dental implants. A few implants are placed in the jaw, onto which the denture can snap or clip on. This provides more stability than traditional dentures, ensuring the denture doesn’t slip or move.
These are longer implants that anchor into the zygomatic bone (cheekbone) instead of the maxilla (upper jaw). They are used for patients who have insufficient bone in the upper jaw for regular dental implants and are looking for an alternative to bone grafting.
Fixed dentures, often referred to as non-removable dentures, are a type of prosthetic device that is permanently attached to dental implants. Unlike traditional removable dentures that can be taken out daily for cleaning, fixed dentures remain in place. They are anchored securely using dental implants embedded in the jawbone, providing a stable and durable solution for missing teeth.
Sedation dentistry refers to the use of medication to help patients relax or become sleepy during dental procedures. It’s often used for patients who experience anxiety or fear related to dental treatments, or for those undergoing lengthy or complex procedures. Sedation dentistry allows patients to be more comfortable and can make the experience less stressful.
