What are dental Implants?

Full Mouth Dental Implants Gold Coast

A dental implant is a permanent tooth replacement solution that is placed in the jaw through surgery. Each implant consists of three parts:

1. A post – the base of dental implants

2. An abutment – the connecting piece

3. A crown or prosthesis – the permanent, new tooth

The post, also sometimes called a screw, is inserted into the bone beneath your gums to replace the root of your tooth. Posts are made of medical-grade titanium, a material that bonds naturally with your bone to create a secure hold for your replacement teeth. The abutment is a connector piece that attaches your implant post to your new replacement tooth, also known as the crown.

Your crowns are custom-made to look just like natural teeth. If you are replacing multiple teeth, you may receive a bridge or other multi-tooth prosthesis instead of a single-tooth crown.

With a high success rate, implants are becoming more and more popular. Many dental professionals recommend implants as the first choice to consider for patients who want to replace one tooth or multiple teeth.

At ArtSmiles Cosmetic Dentistry, our custom Dental Implants will match or replace your natural teeth, and Dr Cristian will make sure that the Dental Implants you get will give you the exact smile transformation that you’ve always wanted.

The Advantages of Dental Implants

With proper care and regular oral hygiene, your implants can last a lifetime. The titanium implants form a permanent bond with the bone in your jaw, allowing your implants to function just like natural teeth with healthy gums.

In the long run a properly placed and maintained dental implant can actually help save you money, time and aggravation.

Dental Implants look, feel and function just like healthy natural teeth. Most patients opt for dental implants to restore their smiles, self-esteem, and confidence, so they enjoy a healthy smile, worry free!
Bone loss, dental shifting, and other issues can arise when teeth are missing for an extended length of time. Dental implants stimulate the bone beneath your gums, preventing bone loss. Your new replacement teeth will also prevent any dental shifting around the missing tooth site and simplify your dental care.
After the healing period is complete, they are just as strong as healthy teeth. Implant patients can eat the foods they enjoy without worrying about their implants slipping or coming out of place. A dental implant procedure provides a great sense of security that teeth will not fall out when eating, laughing or sneezing

It is much easier to care for a dental implant supported crown, which can be cleaned like a natural tooth. 

Because dental implants are easier to brush and keep clean than dentures or bridges, they may reduce your risk of developing gum disease in the future.

 

The human jaw bone maintains its integrity through proper stimulation from the roots of the teeth. When a tooth is missing, that portion of the jaw bone atrophies and wastes away.

Implants can help preserve the integrity of your mouth and face by supporting gum and jawbone structure, stimulating the jaw bone, preventing it from deteriorating, and help avoid serious bone loss and oral health problems.

The appearance of your smile will be more natural and your new teeth will function just like natural teeth. This not only increases comfort, but it also boosts self-confidence when smiling, speaking, and eating. In fact, if dentures or partials are replaced with dental implant supported teeth, the overall boost in quality of life is even more significant thanks to expanded food options, the elimination of messy adhesives, and improved speech, comfort and appearance.

Traditional replacements, like dental bridges, or removable partial dentures, permanently damage the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth space. Dental implants are independent of the neighbouring teeth and will not damage or affect your natural teeth.



Types of dental implants

There are a number of different dental implant types that can be used to treat patients with missing, chipped, or diseased teeth. The type that we use is based on a thorough examination of your mouth and your oral and general health history. Here are the four main types of dental implants that dentists choose to offer patients:

Single-Stage Dental Implant by Artsmiles Dental Procedures Gold Coast

1. Single-Stage Dental Implant:

This implant is called a single-stage implant because it usually only requires one surgical procedure to install it. The procedure involves surgically placing a longer implant into your jaw so it’s on the jaw bone, with the top of the implant level with the gum tissue. Once the implant is in, the gum tissue stitches and closes, leaving the head of the implant visible. After a few months of healing, the dental implant abutment and temporary restoration can attach to the exposing head of the implant without needing any additional surgery.

2. Two-Stage Dental Implant:

This implant requires two surgical procedures for it to be set in place. The first procedure involves placing the implant into the jaw bone and stitching the gum tissue shut. Two to six months after healing, a second minor surgery is done to expose the implant and attach a dental implant abutment and temporary restoration.

Fixed Implant Bridges by Artsmiles Dental Services Gold Coast

3. fixed Implant Bridges:

In cases where multiple teeth are missing, patients may be advised to get a Fixed Implant Bridge. This method avoids the hassle involved with partial dentures, as it doesn’t require metallic clasps during the process. Fixed bridges result in better aesthetics and has no affect to adjacent teeth. Other benefits of bridges is the restoration of your mouth functionality, and preventing remaining teeth from moving out of position. 

4. Implant Overdentures:

Implant overdentures are a great alternative to traditional dentures. Overdentures are placed on top of implants which can add stability when compared to traditional dentures. The benefits of overdentures often include an easier time chewing foods, improved speech, minimized discomfort, no more denture adhesives and often existing dentures can be used.

All-On-4 Dental Implants by Artsmiles Dental Services Southport

5. All-on-4 dental implants:

Patients who would otherwise require a full set of dentures can opt for All On 4, a non-removable denture fixed to 4 or more implants replacing the teeth in one jaw. This has become the most popular worldwide option for patients missing all their teeth. It can be made of titanium/acrylic or zirconium. Tooth breakage is common if the material choice is wrong or if the patient has a strong bite, clenches or grinds. It is a very good option when done properly with the correct combination of materials. The final result is highly aesthetic, functional and comfortable.

Learn more about other of the possible treatments:

If you have one or multiple missing teeth it can lead to bone loss in the jawbone. Without stimulation from your teeth and their roots, your jawbone will deteriorate. As time progresses and the bone continues to deteriorate, the bone mass becomes insufficient for the placement of dental implants.

Bone grafting is the process of restoring the bone in the jaw that has been lost due periodontal disease. If the disease left untreated, the bacteria in the plaque buildup will spread beyond the gum line and cause the supporting bone to deteriorate, potentially causing teeth to fall out completely.

If you are missing teeth and are in need of dental implants, a key factor in the dental implant procedure is having enough bone in the jaw to support implants. Patients who lack the bone density needed to sustain single or multiple implants may be in need of a bone graft, composed of small fragments of your own bone, synthetic material, or donated material.

A sinus lift, also called sinus augmentation, is a procedure that makes it easier to place dental implants. Some patients need dental implants but have suffered bone loss, thus not having sufficient bone support necessary for implants. A sinus lift can help as it increases the amount of bone in the upper jaw by adding bone to the space between your molars and premolars. To make room for the bone, the sinus membrane has to be moved upward or “lifted,” which gives the surgery its name.

Ridge expansion is a procedure that can be performed when the jaw is not wide enough to support implants. In this procedure, the ridge bone is divided and the inner and outer segments of bone are wedged apart. This creates a space between the divided sections of bone that can be filled with bone graft.

As a patient, it is important to have three dimensional imaging if you are planning on having dental implants placed into your jaw bone. By studying a 3D image of your mouth, we can plan the best course of an implant procedure for you. Moreover, 3D imaging enables a predictable result and a less invasive procedure. There are critical structures in your jaw bone which can get damaged during your surgery. But with 3D imaging, we can see the details of your jaw bone and teeth prior to surgery and prepare the procedure and dental implants accordingly.

immediate load dental implants allow posts to be placed in the bone and the new teeth to be placed immediately.
Instead of having to make multiple appointments weeks apart, immediate load dental implants can be done in one visit.
Candidates for immediate load dental implants include those who are having full arch implants, single or multiple teeth in the front of the mouth, and those who have dense bone.



Dental implant procedures

Our cutting edge dental implant technology, advanced techniques and years of experience allow most implant patients, even those with a failing tooth to have an implant and temporary crown the same day. For most patient, in just a few hours, any existing teeth are removed, implants placed and fixed temporary teeth are placed all in the same visit. 

To begin the process, we will place dental implants into the jawbone to act as a tooth root and create a solid foundation for the new teeth. This scenario creates a seamless treatment with the patient usually leaving with a much better tooth than the original. 

After a few months, a permanent implant crown can be delivered to replace the temporary crown. The temporaries provide us with a road map for making the permanent teeth. By comparing what we like and don’t like about the temporaries we fine-tune the permanent teeth to the patient’s highest expectations. 

Our commitment to you is to provide high quality dental restorations to ensure your implants last, so you can smile and eat with confidence.
