Denture Wearers are Getting Screwed

Multiple tooth implants may be placed if you need or desire to permanently replace an extracted or lost tooth.  Titanium implant bases are placed into the jawbone to replace the job of of the tooth roots.  We allow a period of time to allow for the jawbone to heal over the bases before fitting for a crown.  Next, abutments are screwed into bases of the implants to allow crowns to be attached.  Finally, custom fabricated crowns are placed over the abutments and will function like a real tooth.

In order to place an implant, a couple of steps must be taken:

  1. An incision is made into the gums using very precise measurements, then using a very small drill, the jawbone is given a “tap” that will allow the implant to be placed.  After the implant is screwed into place, the gums are closed up and the healing process begins.  This process can take approximately three to six months to ensure the implant has fused with the bone and created a sturdy base for the new teeth.
  2. When the implant is ready, an abutment is attached to the implant, which allows for a new crown to be placed or a denture to be attached.

In many circumstances, all of the upper and lower remaining teeth need to be removed due to advanced periodontal disease and / or dental decay.  By age 50, the average American has lost 12 teeth (National Institute of Health statistic).  People live with gaps, bridges, dentures, sunken faces, and an inability to chew food properly or to eat many of the foods they like.  They can’t even smile without being ashamed.  These problems can compromise their quality of life on a daily basis.

Our patients have shared with us their success stories of what walking out of our offices with permanent teeth has meant to them.  Being able to eat their favorite foods again is one of them.  You can carefully eat immediately and you can take a bite out of that delicious apple in a few weeks.
