STAGES OF IMPLANTATIONWhen dental implants are placed in the jawbone (A), they fuse with your natural bone and become a solid foundation to support one or more artificial teeth called crowns.
Abutment (B) – Placed over a dental implant to support your crowns.
Crowns are made in a dental laboratory using previously taken impressions (C).
A patient after orthodontic treatment turned to the dental clinic with a request to obtain permanent restoration in place of the missing maxillary lateral incisors.
The tooth buds 12, 22 were missing. A diastema was located between the central teeth.
The patient was offered dental implantation together with the surgery to increase bone tissue volume with the subsequent prosthesis.
4 months after the implantation, the patient had her healing caps placed and impressions taken to make all-ceramic veneers for teeth 11 and 21 and zirconia abutments supporting all-ceramic crowns for teeth 12 and 22.
10 days later, the restorations were fixed.
The patient was completely satisfied with her all-ceramic tooth restorations. The check-ups show a stable result.
THE BENEFITS OF DENTAL IMPLANTATION
Implantation in the hands of an experienced dentist and proper planning is one of the safest and most predictable dentistry procedures.
Modern dental implants have been successfully used for over 50 years.
The All-on-4 concept provides our patients with a fixed prosthetics immediately after dental implantation
The advantages of this implantation concept allow:
- a full arch denture to be stabilized with just four implants;
- avoid bone grafting;
- carrying out the procedure in one stage since immediate loading is useful and shows the result;
- using fixed prosthetics, which are more suitable both in service and care, compared to the removable ones;
- this method has been scientifically proven to be effective.
INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT DENTAL IMPLANTS:Dental implants are the only option for restoring missing teeth that preserve natural bone from atrophy (physiological bone loss after tooth extraction).
600 ADAncient dental implants were discovered around 600 AD in the jaw of a Mayan woman.
In 1952The Swedish orthopedic surgeon P.I. Branemark discovered that titanium naturally fused with the bone and was one of the first to install titanium implants.
3 000 000Today, 3 million people in the United States have implants, which is growing by 500 thousand annually.
