Single Tooth Replacement

SINGLE TOOTH MISSING

Today, insertion of a Dental Implant for tooth replacement is considered the standard of care.  Benefits of an all-ceramic crown on implant: 
When both the tooth and root are damaged, the best permanent replacement is a dental implant in conjunction with a ceramic crown. This solution both looks and functions just like a natural tooth. 

 


 


 

 

COURSE OF TREATMENT

INSTALLING THE NEW TOOTH – STEP-BY-STEP

 Dr. Schneeberger and Attisha will outline a course of treatment specific to you at the time of consultation.  They will coordinate each step with your family dentist to insure a smooth transition to your new and permanent tooth replacement.

1: Before the procedure
The dentist makes a first examination and takes one or more x-rays and impressions/digital impressions of the area to prepare for the procedure.
2: Installing the implant
The implant is installed. At this time, a temporary tooth can be provided that will allow for cosmetics and functioning. The implant will need a few months to integrate with the jawbone before the next step is taken.
3: Attaching the new crown
The final step is the placement of the permanent ceramic tooth. The new tooth is installed for life.
4: End result
You should expect the new tooth to fit and function just like a natural tooth. It also requires usual dental hygiene to keep the tooth and gum around it clean and healthy.


Multiple Tooth Replacement

SEVERAL TEETH MISSING

Benefits with fixed bridge on implants:
In this case, when replacing three teeth in the far back of the mouth, a fixed bridge anchored to dental implants is the only fixed alternative. Traditional dentures can't offer the same stability or function.
 

Having dental implants replacing your lost back teeth will give you new strength and stability that allows you to function appropriately. It will also help preserve your jawbone and facial appearance.

 


 

 

COURSE OF TREATMENT

installing fixed replacement for multiple teeth step by step:

1: Before the procedure
Three teeth at back end of the mouth are missing. The only real replacement alternative is installing a fixed bridge. The bridge contains all teeth in one piece and is anchored on dental implants.
2: Installing the implant
First, the implants are installed. This is normally done in a single session. A temporary bridge may be inserted at the same time, allowing appropriate function.
3: Attaching the bridge
The implants need to integrate with the jawbone before the permanent bridge is attached. This is normally done 4-6 months after the implant installation. The time will vary, depending on the teeth affected and the esthetical demands.
4: End result
You will have a stable and secure solution that allows you to function appropriately.
