Types of Dental Implants
There are a variety of dental implants that a dentist can use individually or in groups to replace one tooth, multiple teeth, or a full arch of teeth. Depending on your needs and oral health, we will recommend the appropriate option for the best result.
Standard Dental Implant: Traditionally made from titanium, the implant looks like a threaded post or screw. A dentist will place them in the jawbone, acting as anchors for the final restoration. This could be a single crown, a bridge, a denture, or hybrid teeth such as an All-On-Four.
Mini Implants: Also a threaded post, a dentist will also place the mini-implant into your jawbone like a standard implant. The difference is that it is much thinner, and the surgery can be much less involved. The mini-implant was traditionally used to help secure dentures, but it has evolved into other applications. A consultation and examination is required to determine if mini implants are right for you.
All-On-Four or Hybrid Implants: This technique utilizes 4 to 6 standard implants to secure a full arch (jaw) of teeth in a person’s mouth. If you are missing all of your teeth in the top jaw or bottom jaw or know that you need to remove most or all of these teeth, this option might be a perfect solution for you.
The Dental Implant Process
The process for dental implants takes place over several months:
A consultation will allow you to meet Dr. Slobodian. Here, you will discuss your dental health concerns and aesthetic goals. This 45-minute appointment is an opportunity to understand your current oral health status, treatment options, and how you can get started with treatment.
Each patient starts treatment with a comprehensive evaluation from Dr. Upadya or Dr. Slobodian. The dentist will inspect your teeth, gums, and mouth and determine if dental implants suit you. You must have adequate bone structure to secure the implant in place. Dr. Slobodian or Dr. Upadya will create a personalized treatment plan.
A dental implant is a small titanium post that resembles a screw. Your dentist will place it into the bone, serving as the root of the prosthetic tooth. Strategic planning is crucial to the long-term success and comfort of the final restoration. Unfortunately, many inexperienced doctors will overlook this.
Sometimes, the dentist can restore the implant right away; other times, it requires healing up to 4 months. If necessary, your dentist will provide you with a temporary tooth (or teeth) during the implant healing phase.
Once the dental implant has completely healed, your final restoration can be fabricated, whether it is a single crown, multiple crowns, dentures, or fixed hybrid.
Many patients forget they have a dental implant. The dental implant will look and function the same as natural teeth, and you will be able to floss and brush the dental implant normally. Routine visits to the dentist will be important to ensure long-term health and function.
