This patient has lost a side tooth due to a large cavity. The most esthetic choice is to use an all-ceramic bridge. Zirconia is a white colored metal that when chemically treated, has a great strength; it is then layered over with porcelain to create beautiful teeth.
When a patient loses a tooth, it can be very traumatic. In this case; a tooth had to be extracted, and Dr. Muyal placed an implant at the same time. The measurements are taken, and a "screw retained" porcelain crown is seen being connected to the newly placed implant. The patient leaves with his tooth replaced.
Who should have them? In most cases, where crooked teeth or discolored teeth are not very broken down, or braces are not an option for you. Then porcelain veneers can bring back a perfect smile.
Porcelain veneers require minor modifications to the surface of your teeth to allow fitting of a very thin "skin" of porcelain over the...
Most likely candidate for the implant-supported bridge is a patient with missing two or more teeth in a raw.
In such a case, a dental bridge can be a solution, providing the teeth on either side are healthy and strong enough to support the bridge.
An implant-supported bridge is a suitable dental treatment for the right candidate. See our portfolio of cases showing implant supported bridge with our patients.
The prosthetic bridge is anchored in the jaw by two or more implants. It might take few months for tooth sockets to heal properly and create a foundation for implants.
In some patients, when bone density is low enough, you may require bone grafting first.
Implant supported bridges can be an alternative to the traditional dentures. If you have lost, or you are in danger of losing most of your teeth, implant dentures might be your best remedy.
You can also use implant supported dentures to replace your take-out dentures.
Denture paste used to hold traditional dentures in the proper place in your mouth is never comfortable nor appetizing for anybody's taste.
On the other hand, implant-supported dentures are held in place by several attachments that are implanted firmly in your jaw.
Empty sockets in your bone after the extraction must heal properly, to be able to receive implant screws. If necessary, implant dentists might add some bone graft for better healing and holding
The process takes several steps and can extend over few months.
When the bone has healed, and the implants are placed in the bone, it will take several months for bone and implants to fuse. Next step is to affix connecting ports to the implants that will be used to attach the implant dentures.
