Dental implants can be a fantastic treatment when placed by an experienced dental implant team in Ajax. The implants are surgically placed, so it’s crucial to ensure they are in precisely the right position. This ensures that implant restorations such as crowns, bridges and implant dentures can be fabricated, so they not only look natural but also function properly and are maintainable. Well designed dental implant treatment should result in teeth that are very similar to natural teeth.
When dental implants are placed in the wrong position by less experienced dental implant dentists, and there hasn’t been any consideration as to how they will be restored, the result can be very different. Improperly placed dental implants in Whitby can be a nightmare for restorative dentists and for the dental technicians who make the prostheses. The outcome can be less than satisfactory for everyone.
Experience in Ensuring You Receive the Right Treatment
Our team of dentists and have over thirty years of combined experience in placing and restoring dental implants, ensuring you receive the optimal treatment for your needs. When you initially visit Durham Dental Solutions, we will be interested in whether the implant can be placed in the correct position to allow for proper tooth function and excellent aesthetics, and if there is enough bone to support the implant. The positioning of the implant is dependent on adequate bone density and volume.
To determine if there is adequate bone, we will use our Clarington Cone Beam CT scanner to capture a highly detailed 3-D x-ray of your jaws. The CT scan provides useful information as to the amount of bone volume, the location of tooth roots and nerves, and we use this information to plan your implant surgery.
Your dental implant plan determines the precise placement of each implant, ensuring that once restored, they will look and feel natural and are fully functional. The images are also used to create implant guides for surgery. Once the implant is placed into the bone, it needs time to allow for osseointegration, a process where the implant fuses with the bone.
The Importance of Osseointegration
During osseointegration, new bone grows around and actually on the implant, ensuring it is held firmly in place. Osseointegration is a process that can take several months, and one of the prime reasons why dental implants can fail is when they are “loaded” with the implant prosthesis too early. However, there are specific circumstances where it is possible to place implant prosthesis soon after fit implant teeth soon after the dental implants are inserted into the jawbone, such as “Teeth in a Day” in Pickering, but these circumstances must be carefully controlled as it is critical the dental implants cannot move during osseointegration. If this process is interrupted, it could affect the overall stability of dental implants.
The prosthesis placed on the day of Teeth in a Day surgery is usually temporary, so you will still be able to smile, talk and eat during the healing process. The temporary dental implant bridge is worn for several months until your implants are fully fused with your jawbone and is replaced with your permanent bridge. The reason why we can place a temporary bridge is that it is designed to ‘splint’ the dental implants together. Once splinted, the implants cannot move, and they are stable as they fuse with your jawbone.
