Dental Implants Including All On 4 Dental Implants (“Teeth in a Day”) have become one of the most popular, and predictable procedures to replace one or multiple teeth offered in dentistry. Dental Implants have been proven to be safe and successful for long term replacement of a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root (usually made of titanium) that is placed into your jaw to support restorations that resemble a tooth or group of natural teeth.
What can dental implants do? A dental implant can replace a single natural tooth, be support for a dental bridge, or in a dental implant supported denture (making it more comfortable and secure). Use of a Dental implant to replace missing teeth are a major part of cosmetic dentistry today.
Only you and your implant dentist should know you have a dental implant.
Studies have been completed to compare dental implant patients and an increased quality of life. The answers were a resounding YES. When dental implants restore your smile marred by missing teeth, it equals increased self confidence and self esteem. Also, includes being less self conscious when eating. Not having to worry what foods you can or cannot eat you are able to eat whatever you want.
Another positive is it is easier to speak properly with dental implants vs wearing a removable denture which will always have fit issues.
Implants are also exceptionally natural looking. Modern porcelain crowns can match color, shape, and translucency of our natural teeth to keep you looking and feeling great for years to come.
All On 4 Dental Implants
We are also proud to offer the All On 4 Dental Implants system. A revolutionary, new dental procedure for restoring teeth in a day.The All on 4 Dental Implants procedure uses four dental implants per arch (upper or lower).
During the dental implant surgery the implants in the back are placed on an angle to take maximum advantage of the existing bone structure. A special dental implant was designed that could support the immediate fitting of multiple teeth. This treatment is attractive to those with loose dentures or those in need of full upper and/or lower restorations.
"Teeth In A Day"
With the All-on-4 procedure, qualified patients receive just four dental implants and a full set of new upper or lower replacement teeth in just one appointment. This typically done without the need for dental bone grafting.
The real attraction to the all on 4 implants procedure is how quickly permanent implants can be placed. This allows patients the ability to leave the same day with a denture that is fixed in place and stabilized by their new implants.
How Do I Care For My New Dental Implants?
You will treat your implants just like your natural teeth. Implant maintenance will include regular brushing and flossing at home, along with routine visits to the dentist. Dental hygiene appointments may occur more frequently going forward to maintain proper health surrounding your new dental implants.
A denture that is supported by dental implants is called an overdenture. A traditional removable denture rests directly on the gums, and is not supported by dental implants. This is because the denture sits over the implants.
The multiple implants give support and stability to the denture.
A dental implant supported denture is recommended when a person is missing all the teeth in the jaw. The patient needs to have enough bone in the jaw to support the dental implants.
The denture is able to stay in place using special attachments that allow the denture to “snap” into place over the dental implants. Traditional removable dentures are not stable or comfortable.
Implant cost is a complicated question since every patient will require different needs. A thorough dental examination will allow your dentist to learn more about your specific needs to gain an accurate answer. Only with a complete review can Las Vegas NV dentist Marielaina Perrone DDS give you a more precise assessment of the possible costs of your implants procedure.
The cost of implant treatment will include the following various individual factors:
- The amount, quality, and location of bone
- The number of implants you will need to support the teeth
- The number of missing teeth that need replacing
- The type of artificial teeth the dentist will use
- The types of dental implants used
All of these factors should be discussed with your dentist at your dental implant consultation visit.
Dental Implants =
Dental Implants have over a 98% success rate for long term oral health success. Dental Implants are an artificial tooth root that implant dentists, periodontists, or oral surgeons insert directly into your jaw bone to hold a replacement tooth or teeth.
Dental implants are the perfect option for people with good oral health maintenance who are missing one tooth or multiple missing teeth due to periodontal disease, via trauma, or some other reason.
Dental Implants use the most modern materials that dentistry has to offer. Years and years of research have gone into the Dental Implants in use today. Dental implants are much more tooth friendly than traditional bridgework.
Dental implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support nor do the neighboring teeth need to be prepared to be part of the bridgework. With optimal conditions and in the hands of a skilled dentist, dental implants can look as natural as your own teeth.
Only you and your dentist would ever know you even have one. This gives patients the utmost in self confidence giving them the ability to broadly smile as well as eat as they choose. It is best to choose experienced dentists for such a complex procedure to have fewer complications.
Are All Dental Implants The Same?
No. It is essential to ask the brand of the implant preferred by the dentist. There are a few leading companies that are on the cutting edge in technology. These include Nobel Biocare and Straumann. These two companies are considered the best in the business. Beware of cheaper knock-off brands that are not made to the exact tolerances and will give poorer results. Ask before and be sure to get the highest quality for the best success!
