Dental Implants by DentoBeauty

If you are missing teeth and want the most secure and natural-looking replacements you might want to consider dental implants.

Dental implants are used to support one or more false teeth. They are small titanium screws that are screwed into the jawbone.

They can be used to replace a single tooth using a single implant with a crown, a row of teeth using two implants and a bridge, or a whole arch using an “all-on-four” or “all-on-six” setup.

Read on to find out what to expect when you have a dental implant fitted.

Before We Install Dental Implants

Before we can fit implant(s), we need to be sure that your jawbone is strong enough to support it.

This is done with an x-ray or CT scan which will show how much jawbone is available, as well as the position of nerves and sinuses that surround the area.

If the bone is strong enough to support an implant, we will begin fitting the dental implant as soon as possible. If not, you may need additional treatment before we can fit your implant.

If the CT scan shows a lack of bone to attach the implant(s) to, we may need to carry out a bone graft. This is where bone from another part of your body, or another animal, is added to your jawbone. Another option is to use a synthetic material such as hydroxyapatite or calcium phosphate.

If a grafting procedure is required, it will take around 4 to 12 months until you will be ready for the fitting of your dental implant(s).

Once we are sure there is enough bone to support the dental implant(s), we will begin the process of fitting it.

Fitting the Dental Implant(s)

Fitting the dental implant(s) is done using a plastic surgical guide that goes over your original teeth in order to show where an implant needs to be placed.

The dental implant(s) will then be placed into the jawbone, replacing the tooth root that used to grow there.

Once the implant is placed, you will need to wait a few months for the implant(s) and jawbone to fuse together and give a solid base for the new crown, bridge or dentures to be fixed to.

The amount of time you need to wait will vary depending on the strength of the bone and whether it is on the upper or lower jaw.

Our dentists will give you a date to return and check the progress of the fusing.

After the Implant is Fused

Once the implant has fused to the jawbone (which we will confirm with an x-ray) you will be ready for the second surgery.

This involves making a new incision in the gum to expose the heads of the implant(s) in order to fit a healing cap.

The healing cap is a collar that is screwed into the implant in order to hold the gum away from the head of the dental implant and guide the gum tissue into healing properly.

Around 10 – 14 days later, once the tissue around the gum is healed we can move on to fitting the crown, bridge, or denture.

Fitting the Crown, Bridge, or Denture

Once the tissue has healed around the collar we can remove the healing cap.

At this point, an abutment is screwed into the implant and an impression is made of all teeth and abutments in the mouth.

We will then fit a temporary crown (if a single tooth implant) which will be in place for around 4 – 6 weeks. This crown is typically softer than the final crown in order to protect the implant and strengthen your jawbone while the gums heal around it.

While you are waiting for your gums to heal, we will create your new crown, bridge, or denture using the impressions we took earlier.

Once the 4 to 6 weeks are up we will invite you in for the fitting of your new crown, bridge, or denture.

They are typically screwed into the dental implant for ease of maintenance, however, sometimes we will cement it in place.
