Missing One Tooth
A dental implant is actually a small titanium post that is placed into the jawbone where a tooth has gone missing. There, it can then be used to support a number of restorations that show above the gum line. For those missing a single tooth, the implant will support an all-porcelain crown specially designed by Dr. Jaiswal. Because this new tooth will have the same two-part structure as those surrounding it, it will completely blend into the smile, both functionally and aesthetically.
Missing Multiple Teeth
Fortunately, implants can do much more than restore single teeth! By placing two implant crowns on either side of multiple missing teeth, they can be used to support prosthetic teeth to fill it. This implant bridge doesn’t require surrounding healthy teeth to be shaved down as with a regular bridge, enabling Dr. Jaiswal to preserve more of a patient’s natural smile. Compared to a traditional bridge, implant bridges also look more natural, have a better fit, and can be trusted to last longer as well.
Missing All of Your Teeth
Tired of dealing with numerous missing teeth and/or an unreliable denture that never seems to stay in place? With dental implants, we can finally give you a denture you can rely on. Using multiple implant posts, we can secure prosthetic teeth directly to the jawbone just like natural ones, creating a fit and security a traditional removable denture simply can’t match. And, for patients missing an entire row of teeth, we can restore it with an implant denture in just ONE well-planned appointment using the patented All-on-4 procedure.
Understanding the Cost of Implants
As with any dental procedure, cost is a big factor on people’s minds. When it comes to implants, patients should know that the procedure actually has no set cost. The price can vary quite a bit from person to person depending on how many teeth they want to have replaced, where those teeth are located, and if they require any preparatory procedures (such as extractions or a bone graft to build up the jaw). In any case, implants are still the most cost-effective missing tooth solution available today. Why? The answer is longevity. Regular dentures and bridges typically need to be completely redone every 7-10 years, while dental implants can easily last for 30 years or more. Over the course of a patient’s life, this results in a much lower cost.
Bone Grafting & Tissue Generation
A few years back after teeth were extracted or pulled out the only plan on replacing them was through dentures which has a poor fit and made people unhappy and miserable and part of the reason was after the extractions, there was tremendous loss of bone and tissue around the teeth
With bone grafting and tissue regeneration, now immediately after teeth are extracted, the bone and soft tissue around the missing space can be preserved for up to a year. This has helped in improving both functional and esthetic results of the replacements options used whether implants, dental bridge or even dentures. Bone grafts can be different types and serve different purposes. They can be used at the time of extraction and sometimes also used at the time of implant placement as well. For tissue regeneration a thin membrane is used that allow the good cells to collect at the site of the extraction and improve healing and create an atmosphere that allows proper integration for future replacement of the missing space with an implant.
