The Real Stages of Dental Implants

maureen-before1Dental Implants:  You’ve heard that term being thrown around and other technical terms such as “abutments” and “implant crowns.”  So what are they REALLY to the average man/woman with no dental background?  This article will explain all of it, in pictures and simple explanations.

The first photo is the “before” photo of two teeth missing on the patients upper left area of the mouth.  She requested implants so that she could have individual teeth, just like the ones she used to have.  So, two 9mm length implants were placed in the area in a matter of an hour.  Yes, an hour.  In 2011 dentistry, new local anesthetics are more effective and so patients walk in and walk out after having implants placed.  No more are the days of major “surgery”, having to take off work for a week, and cutting open the gums just to have an implant placed.  In this case, two little holes were made with a “tissue punch” that is exactly 3.5 mm in circumference and the implants were put in.

maureen-after1

Exactly 6 weeks later, these two “abutments” were screwed onto the implants.  Abutments are basically metal components that mimic the shape of a tooth that has been prepared/shaped for a cap (crown).  An impression/mold (the “goopy” stuff) was taken of this and sent off to a lab that makes porcelain implant crowns.

maureen-after2

A few weeks later, voila!  Two teeth that were lost have been totally replaced!!  These crowns were cemented in place just like you would a normal crown to a real tooth.  Pretty cool, if you ask me.  To think that in a matter of 8-9 weeks, you could completely replace a lost tooth!  Tooth, root and you can still floss between the implants!  And even better, I think you would agree that these LOOK like natural teeth.

If you’re hesitant or afraid to have implants, don’t be.  In the right hands, this is a walk in the park.  Now certainly, if you have health issues or other factors such as not enough bone in the area you need an implant, or say your sinus is too big and therefore not enough bone, things could be a little more involved.  But on the whole, visit with your doctor.  He/she should be able to answer all your questions and spend a little time with you explaining the procedure and show you some before/after photos, etc.  If your gut tells you you’re not in the right office to have this work done, your gut’s probably right!  Go with someone you’re comfortable with.

Metal-Free Porcelain Bridges Will Make You Smile!

These are not your Parent’s bridges.  This is what 2011 dentistry can now provide:  Metal-Free Porcelain Bridges.  If you’ve always hated your crowns or bridges that show metal or have that Gray/Black line around the gumline, we can now provide a better, cosmetic alternative.

However, don’t go to just any office for cosmetic treatment.  Great results like you see above don’t just happen.  It takes planning.  It takes a diagnostic wax-up so we can exactly mock-up what everything will look like at the end.  You want to SEE the end result before you start.  That is KEY.  Don’t ever commit to a large case if it has not been planned and a wax-up has not been done.  That’s like building a house from scratch with no blueprints to follow.

Are you tired of seeing yourself in photos and seeing an ugly smile? A dark tooth or black lines around old-fashioned crowns?  Call us today if you are seriously considering changing your smile.  We can help you smile again!

Throughout my years of doing Invisalign, I’m continually amazed at the results we can achieve through just 6 to 12 months of treatment.  In the case shown above, we were able to close all of Mary’s spaces in just 6 months!  If you have spaces between your teeth or crowded teeth, or your teeth have shifted from the time you had your braces taken off, you owe it to yourself to have an Invisalign consult to see what it can do for you.
