Over dentures are prosthodontic replacements which are supported by dental implants. There are several ways in which dental implants can support teeth. Both partials and dentures can be supported by artificial teeth roots. This type of restoration supports biting and chewing function to a great extent.
Patients feel very comfortable when living with over dentures. Removable over dentures have bars which are fixed over dental implants. The custom-made over denture is then fit over the bar. This over denture can be removed whenever necessary. Starting from two to as many as 5 or more dental implants can be used to support over dentures in an arch.
Implant supported fixed dentures are wonderful alternatives for conventional dentures which create discomfort to patients. A full-arch of prosthetic replacement is supported by a few dental implants which are integrated with the jaw bone. Titanium implants are most commonly used for this purpose. There are retaining screws which help the dentures stay in place. These types of dentures are very effective when compared to their removable conventional counterparts.
All-on-4 is an advanced prosthodontic solution to replace all teeth from a dental arch. There are 4 implants which support the prosthodontic teeth arch. These implants are positioned in a particular fashion in order to be able to perfectly support the appliance by taking the bite forces. The denture perfectly supports the facial muscles making the patient look young and attractive. This type of restoration reduces bone resorption when compared to conventional dentures. The healing time is less and the patient does not have to visit the dentist frequently after the treatment is complete. The treatment has high-success rate and it is one of the preferred restoration of modern times.
Maxillary sinus is a bone which is located in the cheek area below the eyes of a person. When there is a molar tooth missing in the maxilla the supporting bone starts to shrink over a period of time and becomes thin. This bone does not have sufficient volume to hold a dental implant. Sinus graft is a procedure performed to build the maxillary sinus bone so that it can hold the implant. A temporary opening is made in the bone and the membrane which adheres to the bone is detached in order to fill the area with bone substitute material. The surgery is a complex process and dentists take all steps for quick healing. Once the maxillary sinus is healed the bone is ready to take the dental implant.
Bone grafting is a process which is essential when there is insufficient bone to hold the implant. If a lost tooth is not replaced in time the bone which supports the tooth starts to shrink. Dental implants cannot be inserted in such bone which does not have sufficient volume. Different bone grafting techniques can be followed to augment the bone. The complexity of the procedure and the time required for healing depends on the amount of bone loss. When there is more bone loss the dentist may use blocks of bone in the region. Titanium screws can help keep the bone block in place. Over a period of several months the bone is healed and the jaw is ready to take the implant.
Dental implant surgery may take over an hour for completion. Patients are generally concerned about spending this time in comfort. Sedation dentistry can help in keeping patients relaxed during the surgery. There are different techniques in sedation dentistry. Nitrous oxide, oral sedation and deep sedation are commonly followed during the dental implant surgery. The choice of a process depends on the anxiety level of the patient. There are special equipments for deep sedation which can help monitor patients continuously during the procedure. This ensures safety of the patients while the dentist can concentrate on the surgery.
I had my first dentist appointment at sunny dental care. The experience was super great, from receptionist, dental assistant, to my dentist Dr. Wong. They are all super nice and helpful. Going to dentist used to be one of my nightmares, but not anymore when I find this gem! Btw, office provide bottle water, juice, and capsule coffee. For new patient, they give you a little welcome gift as well. I'll definitely recommend it to my friends.
I was recommended this place by a coworker and I am SO psyched to have actually listened. What a joyful place for a dentist office!! That day, today, I ended up booking appointments for the fillings I had an instinct I needed. The walls are yellow, every face I met was kind, and I'll likely never go anywhere else as long as my NYC life shall live.. and as long as they keep taking my insurance. SO GRATEFUL! :)
