If you wear dentures or bridges and would like to free yourself of the hassles of removable dental appliances, immediate dental implants may offer you the best option. With advances in dentistry, it is now possible to have new teeth implanted the same day as surgery to remove teeth that have been damaged or suffered from decay. However, it is important to have as much information as possible before choosing to go with immediate dental implants.
Immediate dental implants are possible whether you are missing a single tooth or need all of your teeth replaced. Each patient has different needs, so the dentist performing the process should adapt their services to your circumstances. They will look at the teeth you are missing, whether you require a new upper or lower arch as well as look at your upper and lower jaw line to be sure the implants will provide you with the look you desire.
Immediate dental implants offer a lifetime solution to missing teeth, unlike dentures or bridges that may need to be replaced over time. Dental implants are very similar to your natural teeth as the titanium that holds the implant in place fuses with your jawbone exactly like your natural teeth did. This helps keep your jawbone healthy as the implants stimulate the jawbone in a natural way. With dentures, your jawbone does not receive the stimulation it needs to be healthy, so it can deteriorate over time.
Dental Examination and Pre-Operation CT Scan
Your consultation will include a dental examination that is very similar to any other dental appointment you have had. At the Friedman Dental Group, we look inside your mouth and diagnose any issues we may see to determine what implants will work best and whether you are a candidate for the All-on-Four system. We will perform a pre-operation CT scan as well. This is an advanced scanning device that emits a low level of radiation in order to provide us with high-quality imaging of your jawline, teeth and gums. This provides us with a more accurate picture of how
best to proceed with your treatment.
The long-term care of immediate dental implants is similar to that of your natural teeth. The same day you have surgery, you will leave the office with new teeth that look very much like your natural teeth. You will be able to brush and floss them just like your natural teeth, making their long-term care relatively easy. The only requirement is that you keep regular follow-up appointments with your dentist and oral specialist in order to avoid any problems in the future.
