Multiple Tooth Implants

Multiple tooth implants may be placed if you need or desire to permanently replace an extracted or lost tooth. Titanium implant bases are placed into the jawbone to replace the job of the tooth roots. We allow a period of time to allow for the jawbone to heal over the bases before fitting for a crown. Next, abutments are screwed into the bases of the implants to allow crowns to be attached. Finally, custom fabricated crowns are placed over the abutments and will function like a real tooth.

Implant Placement

In order to place an implant, a couple of steps must be taken:

1) An incision is made into the gums using very precise measurements, then using a very small drill, the jawbone is given a "tap" that will allow the implant to be placed. After the implant is screwed into place, the gums are closed up and the healing process begins. This process can take approximately three to six months to ensure the implant has fused with the bone and created a sturdy base for the new teeth.

2) When the implant is ready, an abutment is attached to the implant, which allows for a new crown to be placed or a denture to be attached.

All-On-4™

This prosthesis is used in special situations for patients who have enough bone in the anterior regions of the lower or upper jaws, but limited amount of bone in the posterior regions and are not candidates for extensive bone grafting.

Full Arch Implants

In many circumstances, all of the upper or lower remaining teeth need to be removed due to advanced periodontal disease and/or dental decay. One approach is a full upper or lower plate; however, this treatment modality is not recommended. The treatment of choice is to replace the upper or lower teeth with caps that are in place permanently and supported by dental implants. A common goal of treatment is to have (12 teeth caps) supported by 8 implants. The 4 caps that are not supported by the implants are connected to adjacent implant-supported caps. With this optimal approach, the maximum amount of bone is preserved.

Implant Supported Dentures

This implant technique, is the optimal solution for those who have lost or are about to lose all of their upper and/or lower teeth. It's a procedure that comes closest to having a new set of permanent teeth.

Immediate Load Implants

By age 50, the average American has lost 12 teeth (National Institute of Health statistic). People live with gaps, bridges, dentures, sunken faces, and an inability to chew food properly or to eat many of the foods they like. They can’t even smile without being ashamed. These problems compromise their quality of life on a daily basis.

What does immediate loading / immediate function mean?

Removable partial denture can cause damage to existing teeth and gums. The TeethToday Center is among a few Dental Implant Centers in the region offering Immediate Load / Immediate Function procedures for replacing missing teeth. With this time and cost savings procedure, a high resolution 3D CAT scan, is used with virtual planning software to plan and facilitate the design and fabrication of both the temporary and final replacement teeth. To save on treatment time, this procedure is completed after the initial consultation with the patient and before the scheduled implant placement itself.

TeethToday® is the name of this innovative dental procedure during which a patient is given new teeth supported by dental implants, with the entire procedure being completed in 1 or 2 office visits within a 24 hour time period. The procedure uses what is called the immediate load technique where the new provisional tooth and the implant post are placed during the same procedure or within one day. Patients will never leave our office without teeth.

Why consider immediate loading or TeethToday dental implants?
Removable dentures or other dental appliances are frequently uncomfortable, even painful, ill fitting and sometimes will just sit on a shelf at home. Removable appliances can cause bone loss (atrophy) and gum recession. These dental appliances are often difficult to keep clean which can result in a bacteria infested environment that can lead to infections, bad breath, more root canals and weaker teeth that may fracture and lead to subsequent tooth loss. Dental appliances often have an unnatural appearance too, which is why they are known as "false teeth."

Most people take dining in restaurants or kissing someone you love for granted. Individuals with dental appliances, such as removable dentures, know that intimate situations or social dining can be a frequent cause of embarrassment. In addition, these appliances may even make it difficult to speak clearly enough for you to be understood by your family, friends and business associates.

For denture wearers all these normal, everyday experiences are rarely discussed -- it is almost taboo or too awkward to approach these subjects with your family or friends. You just learn to live with the shame, indignity and humiliation of a mouth that has betrayed you. If this sounds like your life then now is your opportunity to take control of your mouth with the help of Dr. Ganeles, Dr. Norkin, and Dr. Zfaz and TeethToday.

Whether you have failing teeth, bad teeth, removable appliances, fixed bridges, old dental implants, or you need to replace a single-tooth, multiple teeth or even a full mouth of teeth TeethToday will make you feel like a whole person again. Your smile will make you look like the person you remember seeing in the mirror or the person you always wanted to see.
