The most significant dental innovation of our generation, dental implants are a long lasting and durable solution to replace missing teeth. A dental implant is a small titanium post that replaces the root of a missing tooth. A natural looking porcelain crown or multiple crowns are then permanently fixed to the implant. Dental implants can replace a single missing tooth, multiple teeth or all of your teeth. The result is the comfort, security, fit, feel and function of natural teeth.
Dental Implants are the state-of-art treatment option to restore a youthful and confident smile. Fully functioning teeth even allow you to chew and eat all of your favorite foods! This life changing procedure can be accomplished in as little as one day. Call our office today to learn more.
Below are some examples of Dr. Babushkin’s work restoring implants with natural looking teeth.
Single Implant in the Smile Zone
This adult patient had suffered a traumatic hockey accident as a child. His front tooth was treated with a root canal and a crown.The tooth recently fractured and required replacement with a dental implant and crown. The ability to maintain the gum tissue scallop is what allows a tooth replacement that is indiscernible from the rest of the natural teeth.
This tooth required replacement due to resorption. A process where your tooth is attacked by your own bodies immune system and becomes hollow. Notice the pinkish hue.
A single dental implant, with a custom zirconia abutment and crown gave this patient a permanent tooth replacement that is esthetic and functional.
Multiple Implants in the Smile Zone
This adult patient had a failed tooth supported upper bridge. It was replaced with an implant supported fixed bridge secured on 6 dental implants.
This adult patient lost three teeth in the smile zone that were replaced by two dental implants and a fixed implant supported bridge.
Single Implant Replacing A Congenitally Missing Lateral Incisor
Congenitally missing lateral incisors are a common problem for our patients.The combination of well planned orthodontics, tooth whitening, and dental implant treatment can result in a long lasting esthetic tooth replacement.
This congenitally missing lateral incisor was replaced with a dental Implant and crown in conjunction with some esthetic bonding, resulting in a balanced and esthetic smile.
Back Tooth Implant Replacements
Immediate Replacement of a Full Jaw of Teeth
Reasons for dental implants:
Replace one or more missing teeth without
affecting adjacent teeth.
Resolve bite problems caused by
teeth shifting into missing tooth space.
Restore a patient’s confident smile.
Restore chewing, speech, and digestion.
Restore or enhance facial tissues.
Support a bridge or denture, making them more
secure and comfortable.
What does getting dental implants
The process of getting implants can require as little as one visit or several visits over several months depending on the patients anatomical limitations or the need to develop the intended implant site with grafting.
Digital CT scan and digital impressions are taken of the
jaws and teeth to determine bone, gum tissue, and spacing available
for an implant. The sites where implants are desired are evaluated on these digital scans and the implants are proposed on treatment planning software. The software allows the implants to be envisioned and a surgical guide to be fabricated that will guide ideal implant placement. This allows great control over three dimensional implant placement. At time of surgery the area is numb, the surgical guide is placed and the implants installed into the bone. Often these implants can have an immediate tooth or teeth connected to it. If poor bone quality is encountered at time of placement the implants will be allowed to heal without a tooth connected to it for approximately 4 months. A temporary tooth replacement is then given during this healing period.
After several months of healing the permanent tooth/ teeth replacement are made and attached to the implants. This step may take one to
two months to complete depending on the complexity of the tooth replacement. After a healing period, the artificial
teeth are securely attached to the implant, providing excellent
stability and comfort to the patient.
You will receive care instructions when your
treatment is completed. Good oral hygiene, eating habits, and
regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new implant.
