A dental implant is a screw that is placed in the jawbone to replace one or more missing teeth. This screw has threads inside which makes it possible to screw a crown inside of this one.
A fixed bridge on implants
A crown on implants
Removable prosthesis on implants
- Preservation of adjacent teeth. Unlike dental bridges, they do not require the adjacent teeth to be filed down.
- Fixed. Unlike removable dentures, implants allow crowns, bridges and fixed restorations to be fabricated. As a result, your chewing will be greatly improved. Even when you choose a removable prosthesis on implants, the prosthesis will be more stable and retentive.
- Bone stimulation. Like a root, it stimulates the bone every time you eat with your implants. You can compare your bone to a muscle. The less you stimulate it, the more it will atrophy.
- High initial costs
- A good dental hygiene at home is extremely important
Sequences of treatments
2. Implant(s) placement
3. Healing from 3 to 6 months
4. Delivering of the crown (tooth)
5. Regular dental cleaning by your dentist
- If you grind your teeth at night, it is important to have your dentist make a night guard to protect your implant from the harmful forces of bruxism.
- Good dental hygiene is essential for the long-term success of your implant.
- Regular dental cleaning. A dental cleaning every 3-4 months is recommended during the first year after placement of your implant (s) so that your dentist can correct any deficient brushing technique as soon as possible. Tartar build-up can cause rapid bone loss around implants, sometimes resulting in their loss.
