Different kinds of dental implants
At clinique d’implant dentaire [Dental implant clinic], you will need to opt from three kinds of dental implants.
Standard implant process is concluded in three steps.
- Placement – An implant with a ‘healing cap’ is placed in the lower or upper jaw, surgically. Sometimes, the dentist will need bone grafting on implant location for strengthening this spot for dental implant placement.
- Healing – Generally, it takes three months for the dental implants to integrate with the patient’s bone structure. Bone cells get attached to implants titanium surface directly and lock it with your jaw bone.
- Tooth replacement – Bridge or custom crown is designed to fit over the implant or existing teeth.
Standard implant helps in single tooth replacement or placing of two implants to make a bridge without affecting the surrounding teeth.
Same day dental implants
Crowns take time to be designed, so temporary crowns are placed over the implant on the same day the dentist places dental implants. You can return to the clinic, when permanent crown gets designed. It is a quick way to replace broken tooth.
Partial or full dentures are tailored to connect with your dental implants. However, the patient needs to have enough bone density for designing dentures that fit well. Placements of two or more dental implants are made and allowed to cure. After healing, dentures clip on the implants. Thus, pressure on gums is avoided because the implants handle all the stress of the dentures. Thus, bone loss is prevented or reduced.
