THE PROCESS OF IMPLANT TREATMENT

Before our dentists begin the treatment, we will also consider factors such as your medical health. If you qualify, our team will plan treatment accordingly. Our dental implants are designed to look and feel like your natural teeth. Since they are surgically placed into your jawbones, it is impossible to know that they are not your natural teeth. Apart from looking and feeling like your natural teeth, implants offer other benefits. They are the only dental option that preserves your natural bone, and they also outlive dentures and bridges. Additionally, you don’t even have to worry about removing them every night.

 

Please note that it is essential to ensure your dental implants are clean and well-maintained. Our scheduled teeth cleaning, combined with regular brushing and flossing, will help you keep your dental implant in top condition.

ABOUT DENTAL IMPLANTS

Here are some insights about dental implants:

Dental implants are titanium root-form screws placed within the bone to support a prosthesis.

A patient would require a thorough examination by the dentist to see if they are eligible for dental implants.
Dental implant treatment planning is prosthetically driven.
The use of 3D radiography (medically known as cone-beam computed tomography) and intra-oral scanning aids in treatment planning in dental implant cases.

THE IMPLANT PATHWAY

Initial implant consultation 🡪 full examination 🡪 surgical phase 🡪 healing phase and temporization 🡪 final prosthetic phase 🡪 maintenance

 

The initial implant consultation is a way for you to get to know us and also for us to get to know you; it gives us an idea of the nature of your problem and how to help you. The consultation is free in our office. The complete examination entails taking records, images, and radiographs and developing a concise treatment plan for your case. The surgical phase is the first step in the implant process; sometimes, multiple surgeries are required depending on the case's complexity. After the surgery, time is needed for the soft and hard tissues to heal or for the implant to osseointegrate. The healing time differs from case to case; it can be as little as 6 weeks or as long as 9 months. The final prosthetic phase is taking scans, impressions, and intra-oral records to fabricate the prosthesis. After the work is done, the patient moves on to the maintenance phase, which is the constant monitoring and cleaning of the work done.

THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE GETTING DENTAL IMPLANTS

Before undergoing dental implant treatment, there are several important factors to consider, such as:

Eligibility: Not everyone is a suitable candidate for dental implants. A thorough examination by a dentist is necessary to evaluate factors such as overall oral health, bone density, and any underlying medical conditions that may affect the success of the implants.

Treatment timeline: Dental implant treatment typically involves multiple stages and requires a certain amount of healing time between each stage. It is essential to understand that the process may take several months from the initial consultation to the final restoration.

Bone quality and quantity: Sufficient bone density and volume are crucial for successful implant placement. In cases where the jawbone lacks the necessary support, additional procedures like bone grafting may be required before implant placement.

Oral hygiene and maintenance: Proper oral hygiene is essential for the long-term success of dental implants. Maintaining good oral habits, including regular brushing, flossing, and routine dental check-ups, is vital to prevent complications such as implant failure or peri-implantitis.

Cost considerations: Dental implants are a long-term investment in oral health and aesthetics. It is essential to discuss the cost of the treatment with the service provider.

Potential risks and complications: Like any surgical procedure, dental implant treatment carries certain risks and complications, although they are relatively rare as implant success rate is approximately 95%.

If you have any concerns regarding dental implants, you can consult our team of dentists in Mississauga.

DENTAL IMPLANT CONSIDERATIONS: A GUIDE TO A SUCCESSFUL TREATMENT JOURNEY

Dental implants are a remarkable investment in your oral health and overall well-being. However, undergoing implant treatment requires careful consideration and planning. Here, we'll explore some key factors to ensure a successful implant journey:

Candidacy Evaluation: A thorough consultation and examination are crucial to determine your candidacy for dental implants. Our team will assess your oral health, jawbone density, and overall health to ensure implants are the right choice for you.

Treatment Planning: Following a comprehensive evaluation, we will develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. This plan will outline the number and location of implants required, the surgical procedure, and the type of restoration (crown, bridge, or denture) used.

Bone Grafting (if necessary): In some cases, patients may require bone grafting procedures to improve jawbone density or volume before implant placement. Bone grafting techniques promote bone growth in the necessary areas, creating a strong foundation for successful implant osseointegration.

Post-Operative Care: Following implant surgery, meticulous oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups are essential for optimal healing and long-term implant success. Our team will provide detailed instructions on post-operative care to ensure proper healing and prevent complications.

Financial Considerations: Dental implant treatment is an investment, and the cost can vary depending on the complexity of your case. We offer flexible payment options and can help you navigate your dental insurance coverage to make implant treatment more accessible.

At Sunray Dental Centre, we understand that dental implant treatment can be a significant decision. We are committed to providing you with the information and support you need throughout the entire process. Our team will answer your questions, address your concerns, and guide you every step of the way towards achieving a healthy, beautiful smile with dental implants.

WHEN ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS THE BEST OPTION FOR YOU

Dental implants are a versatile and generally long-lasting tooth replacement option, but they aren't always the best fit for everyone. Here's a breakdown of scenarios where dental implants shine:

Missing Teeth (Single or Multiple): If you're missing one or more teeth, dental implants are an excellent choice. They replace the tooth root and function very similarly to natural teeth, providing excellent stability and preventing bone loss in the jaw. This is especially beneficial compared to traditional bridges, which rely on neighboring teeth for support and can contribute to bone resorption.

Replacing Loose or Ill-Fitting Dentures: Do your dentures slip or become uncomfortable throughout the day? Dental implants can significantly improve your denture experience. Strategically placed implants can support implant-overdentures, offering superior stability, retention, and bite function compared to traditional dentures.

Jawbone Health and Quality: Ideal candidates for dental implants have sufficient jawbone density and volume to support the implant. If your jawbone has deteriorated due to missing teeth for a long time, bone grafting procedures may be necessary before implant placement.

Overall Health and Commitment to Oral Hygiene: Dental implants are a surgical procedure, so good overall health is crucial for successful osseointegration (fusion of the implant with jawbone). Additionally, a strong commitment to maintaining excellent oral hygiene is essential for the long-term health of your implants and surrounding tissues.

Considering Long-term Investment: Dental implants are a long-term investment in your oral health. While the initial cost may be higher than other tooth replacement options, implants offer exceptional durability and a natural look and feel. With proper care, they can last for decades.

Here are some instances where alternative tooth replacement options might be preferable:

Limited Budget: If cost is a significant concern, bridges or dentures may be a more affordable option in the short term.

Insufficient Jawbone: If bone grafting is not feasible due to severe bone loss or health limitations, other restoration methods might be necessary.

Temporary Tooth Replacement: For temporary solutions, while waiting for permanent implants to heal or in young patients whose jawbone is still developing, alternative options like bridges or partial dentures may be considered.

Ultimately, the best course of action depends on your individual situation, needs, and preferences. Consulting Sunray Dental Centre will help you determine if dental implants are the right choice for you. They will perform a thorough examination, assess your jawbone health, and discuss all available tooth replacement options to create a personalized treatment plan.

IMPLANT CROWNS

Implant crowns play a crucial role in restoring both the aesthetics and functionality of a patient's smile. Here’s how they work:

Dental implants are an option to replace missing teeth.
An implant crown is a way to replace a single tooth that was lost.

The advantage of implant crowns is that they are fixed and have high longevity and success rates.

IMPLANT BRIDGES

If multiple adjacent teeth were lost either due to disease or trauma, an implant bridge may be the best option for you. It involves the placement of several dental implants which hold different teeth together. They are fixed in your mouth, so you do not have to worry about losing or taking them out at night. Their advantages are the same as implant crowns.

OVERDENTURES ON IMPLANTS

Want to know if you are a candidate for overdentures? Here are a few things to consider:

If you lost most or all of your teeth in your upper or lower jaw, or you want to improve your current denture’s oral function, overdentures may be your best option.

It involves placing as little as two dental implants in the jaw and connecting them to your dentures through male and female-like attachments called locators.
This option will improve denture retention, stability, and support.
They eliminate the need to use a denture adhesive.

BENEFITS:

There are many benefits of overdentures, including:

Enhanced stability
Improved retention
Increased quality of oral function

More aesthetic

IMPLANT BAR OVERDENTURE

Here are some facts about implant bar overdenture:

An implant bar overdenture is another method to improve oral function for edentulous patients.

It involves the placement of multiple implants in the arch and the fabrication of a titanium bar that splints the implants together.

The bar connects to the denture to give you incredible denture support, retention, and stability.

Bar overdentures can be removable or permanently fixed in the mouth.

The bar distributes occlusal forces on the implants in the arch, which improves longevity and reduces the amount of plastic on the denture.
They also help the patient generate high occlusal forces for improved mastication.

Bar overdentures will be your option if you want a high-quality treatment to replace and restore your arch.

ALL-ON-X FIXED PROSTHESIS

The All-on-X fixed prosthesis is a groundbreaking dental solution for patients with missing teeth. Here is how it works:

All-On-X fixed prosthesis is dentistry’s best and top-quality option to restore a full arch.

It involves the placement of multiple implants in the arch and the fabrication of a full-arch zirconia prosthesis that connects to the implants.

Using zirconia as a prosthetic material provides a very high aesthetic appearance and rigidity to the prosthesis.

BONE GRAFT

Bone grafts (medically referred to as guided bone regeneration) are techniques used to grow more bone in specific areas where required. They are adjunct techniques used with dental implants to provide successful results. Long story short, if you do not have the bone, then we make the bone.

 

Bone graft materials:

Autograft - bone taken from the same person from another site

Allograft - bone taken from another human who donated their bone post-mortem

Xenograft - bone taken from animal sources (either cows or pigs)
Alloplast - synthesized bone from the lab made from calcium phosphate

Depending on the case, the doctor will select an appropriate material upon the patient's consent.

 

 

SOCKET PRESERVATION

When teeth are extracted, a socket preservation procedure may be indicated to preserve the bony ridge. A natural sequela of tooth extraction is for the bone to collapse, thus leaving a thin ridge. This results in less bone being available for possible implant placement in the future. Placing bone graft material inside the socket helps prevent the ridge from collapsing and provides more bone volume.

SINUS LIFTING

Some situations result in loss of bone height in the posterior aspect of the upper jaw, by which a sinus lift would be required to restore the lost bone. The procedure entails lifting the membrane, which lines the sinus with the maxilla, and placement of bone.

TEETH EXTRACTION

Tooth decay, tooth fractures, or severe crowding are some of the many reasons teeth might need extractions. While it may sound like a scary procedure, do not worry, you won’t feel a thing in the dental chair, and we also have specific instrumentation and techniques to remove teeth atraumatically to preserve your natural bone and decrease post-operative pain.
