At Dental Siganture dental clinics, its Emquartier is a Nobel Biocare dental implant center

When would you need a dental implant?

Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth, several teeth, or all of the teeth and retains bone structure, improved comfort relative to removable dentures . The goal of teeth replacement is to restore function as well as esthetics and quality of life.

Type of dental implant restorations

Dental Implants are a variety of combinations of prosthetics over the dental implants for each type of dental implant restorations:

  1. Single tooth Implant
    The single implant restoration consists of three parts are tooth root, abutment and composes of a crown fitted onto the implant post. The single tooth implant acts as a new tooth root with a crown over the tooth. Sometimes, immediate and immediate load implants might be done for single tooth implants.
  2. Multiple Tooth Implants with bridges
    If multiple teeth are missing within the same region several single tooth implants may be used to restore the missing gap with implants and fixed bridges over the dental implant post may be done to restore missing gaps more economically.
  3. Full Mouth Tooth Implants
    When full mouth missing gaps or in a condition that all teeth need to be replaced with dental implants.

    • Dentures Implants
    • Dental Bridge Implants
    • All-on-4 Immediate Function Implants

Full Mouth Tooth Implants Types

  1. Dental Implants with Overdentures
    The solution of implants with overdentures are Mini-implants, Locator mini-implants and Conventional dental implants placed in the jaw areas results in a significant improvement in denture retention and chewing ability for the patient.

    • Mini-implants with overdentures
    • Locator Mini-implants with overdentures
    • Conventional Dental Implants with overdentures
  2. Dental Implants with Fixed Bridges
    Dental Implants with Fixed Bridges is similar to having replace implants with a new set of bridges over each dental implant post. There are no natural teeth available for fixed bridge abutment support.
  3. All-on-4 or All-on-6 Implants with Hybrid Fixed Bridges
    All-on-4 treatment is a cost-efficient solution that provides patients with a new set of teeth in either on their upper or lower jaws or both the jaws within a few days or almost immediately after implant post placements.

Advantages of All-on-4 and All-on-6 Implants

  • Full-arch tooth replacement with only 4 or 6 implants
  • Immediate Function
  • Enables stability even with minimum bone volume in posterior areas.
  • Graftless procedure (Bone grafting is avoided by tilting the posterior implants, utilizing available bone)

Immediate Function All-on-4 and All-on-6

  1. All-on-4
    All-on-4 implants places 2 implants tilted at the side and 2 at the frontal area.
  2. All-on-6
    All-on-4 implants places 2 implants tilted at the side and 4 at the frontal area

Conventional (Two-Stage) Dental Implants

The two stage procedure is the most commonly practiced method. The implant is surgically placed in the jaw bone so that it lies with bone underneath the gum. The gum tissue is then closed with stitches to protect the implant from force while the surrounding bone heals and fuses to it. After a period of healing (2-6 months ), a second (minor) surgery is conducted to uncover the implant in order to attach the restoration.

Same day implants ( Immediate Load Dental Implants)

Immediate Load Dental Implants, also called “same day implants or immediate function implant ” allow placement of a temporary tooth (crown) during the same appointment as dental implant placement. You will go on about life and work while the dental implant fuses with your natural bone and the long-term custom crown will be placed in about three to six months.
Immediate placement is not appropriate for all patients and cases, Our implant specialist will give you advice about the best option for you.
