Replacing missing teeth
Implantation, immediate implantation, immediate restoration, All-on-4 technique
Have you lost a tooth and are unsure what to do about it?
Did your dentist have to pull one of your teeth lately and you don’t see why it would be important to replace it?
In modern society, an attractive, natural-looking smile is seen as a symbol of health and beauty, but just because the tooth is not visible it doesn’t mean it is unnecessary to replace it.
One tooth missing: single crown on single implant
Multiple missing teeth: depending on the situation, more implants are inserted and a screw-retained zirconia bridge can be built upon them.
Total edentolousness:6 or 8 implants are inserted per jaw and, following the healing time, a screw-retained full arch bridge is fitted. This technique offers more comfort than a poorly fitted removable denture.
What happens when a tooth is missing?
A missing tooth has effects on the surrounding teeth as well: the neighbouring and opposite teeth start to shift and collapse.
It effects the jaw bone and gums as well. Your jaw bone starts shrinking and your gum pulls back accordingly.
Let’s not forget about the effects on your appearance. Missing teeth and bone no longer can support your lips from the inside. The more teeth you lose, the more your face will change: the unsupported lips can make you look older and create more wrinkles.
And last but not least, missing teeth effect your everyday life. Not replacing one tooth can start a chain reaction: it might cause you to lose confidence, make eating and chewing more difficult, and you may find yourself avoiding eating certain foods.
To avoid these negative consequences contact us! A fixed prosthesis based on dental implants will give you the much desired stability that removable dentures simply can’t. With our help your tooth can be replaced easily so you can smile confidently and get your quality of life back.
