Dental implants are often placed in a two stage procedure which requires multiple visits to the clinic. This fashion can take longer and can be more expensive. We offer dental implant solutions that are often more cost effective and less time consuming but your suitability for this treatment must first be assessed by one of our dentists.
Immediately loaded implants can bear the forces of an anchor and a dental crown immediately after being placed into the jawbone. Success, if following the protocols of immediate loading techniques, is 97 percent long-term success.
Historically, the original protocol was to wait months prior to loading the teeth. This protocol was developed by the Swedish orthopedic researcher more than 45 years ago.
Expert Implantologists nowadays think that, what we found clinically and scientifically, is that if the forces where controlled properly and the implant installed with a different criteria, we could still achieve fusion of the bone and implants through a process called osseointegration.
One of the greatest benefits of dental implants is adding them to an existing denture patient. Doing so enables the denture to be fixed in place, eliminating the need for sticky, messy adhesives and often getting rid of the plastic on the roof of the mouth.
Also patients can really enjoy their foods, love life and have a lot more confidence with this procedure.
Immediate load implants also are a great option for fearful patients. Any time fearful patients can reduce the number of trips they must make to the dentist, they are happy.
There are additional benefits. Patients also save money when the procedure can be completed in one visit. In instances where a patient must have a tooth extracted, implantologists can reduce bone loss for the patient by immediately placing the implant after removing the tooth.
Not everyone is a candidate for immediate load dental implants. You must have good quality bone structure. However, if you have a thin jaw bone, dental implants surgeon will regenerate lost bone structure with the use of one or a combination of the following:
• Soft Tissue Graft: this can be done using either soft tissue graft from the palate (roof of the mouth) or use synthetic version instead. When everyone places a dental implant, he/she is shooting for optimum results. That means that the patient needs to be in good general and oral health.
If gum disease is present, it must be treated with the latest laser treatment called LANAP, which stands for Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure. Laser Dentists describe it as highly effective and added that it involves no cutting or suturing.
