A Long Term Solution – Dental Implants

23 January 2023by Carvolth Dentistry

Losing a tooth is an unfortunate experience and we understand that it comes with a range of difficulties. A lost tooth can affect an individual in several ways, difficulty in speech, lack in confidence, psychologically feeling self-conscious, difficulty in chewing. With advancements in the dental industry, there are options available to replace missing or lost teeth. The difficulty that comes with the lost teeth can be avoided with modern advancements in Dentistry. It is now possible to receive a replacement tooth quickly by placing a dental implant prosthesis and attaching a provisional crown often on the same day. 

Dental Implants offer a long-term solution to get you back to your original, if not better, functionality. At Carvolth Dentistry, when a patient has a tooth extraction, we typically recommend dental implants as the best option for tooth restoration. Having dental implants placement following tooth extraction will allow you to get back the appearance and functionality of your missing tooth.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental Implants are typically made up of Titanium Metal which is a biocompatible material that fuses with your bone over time. Dental implants consist of three parts:

    1. Implant (titanium screw inserted into jawbone)
    2. Abutment (the piece that the crown/prosthetic tooth is attached to)
    3. Crown/Prosthetic tooth

Once the dental implant is placed in the jawbone, the abutment is attached to the implant. The abutment protrudes through the gum tissue and serves as a base for a dental crown, bridge, or denture. Since the implant is inserted into the bone, it is often a strong, reliable and permanent solution to lost teeth.

What to Expect at Your Dental Implant Consultation

During a consultation visit, you will first receive a 3D-CT Scan, IntraOral scan and X-Rays to see if a dental implant can be placed in the area where you are missing your tooth.

The 3D-CT Scan is required to check the bone structure of where your implant will be inserted and other factors to consider in your jawbone like the presence of nerves or location of your sinus. The IntraOral Scan is used to create a 3D model of your teeth and is used to check the bite and after your implant is inserted and to plan your treatment, overall. 

What is Guided Surgery or Minimally Invasive Surgery? 

Dentistry is constantly developing minimally invasive procedures to improve patients’ comfort during treatment. During minimally invasive surgeries, we try to minimize the amount of bleeding and discomfort felt by the patient.

We use the most advanced technology and software available in the Dental industry in creating your treatment plan for Dental Implants. Using surgical treatment planning software, we can precisely determine the position, angle and number of implants required to give you the best results.

After the planning and modelling in the software, a surgical guide or template is made, which is made of plastic that is personalized to you. Is used to guide the placement of the implants at a precise position in your jawbone. These techniques reduce the amount of discomfort to the patient and allow us to work more efficiently and more accurately, resulting in a shorter healing time giving you better results.
