Teeth Whitening

Bangkok Dental

Dental Implants can have many benefits over dentures or bridges.

A dental implant can be used to replace a single missing tooth, restore and entire smile and provide a more permanent solution to replace other solutions to missing teeth like dentures or dental bridges.  Periodontal disease can cause tooth loss and with tooth loss your self esteem is affected and your confidence is lost.  Dental implants are a great alternative for people who are in generally good oral health that have lost their teeth due to an accident or have lost a single tooth or teeth due to peridontal disease.  Single tooth implants actually rely on your other teeth for support so they can be a tooth saving solution in many ways.

Dental implants have improved drastically over the past decade with improvements to implant technology.  Materials have improved and implant education is better than ever.  What are dental implants?  They are artificial teeth that are an alternative to dentures or dental bridges.  They are a more permanent solution and have many benefits that far exceed the advantages of dentures or bridges.  Do you experience some of the following issues with your dentures or bridges?

  • When eating foods do your dentures shift and click so that it is uncomfortable?
  • Have you ever been public speaking and had issues where your bridge or denture was shifting and making it uncomfortable to speak?
  • Do you wish you could eat more steak and comfortably bite into an apple without fear of your denture becoming loose.
  • Are you embarassed to smile?
  • Have you been experiencing bone loss or gum recession since wearing dentures or having a dental bridge?
  • Have your dentures ever cracked or made it uncomfortable to fit.
  • Do you feel like you've lost the smile you had when you had your natural teeth?

Benefits of Dental Implants

Appearance - dental implants look far more esthetic as they are situated in to the structure of your bone and will prevent bone loss and further gum recession.  The implants look and act more like your natural teeth as compared to loose fitting dentures and ill fitting bridgework.

Increased Confidence and Self Esteem- Lets face it those pastes and denture powders can be a pain to have to use on a daily basis.  Think about it, have you ever been somewhere where you forgot your denture paste and had to make a last minute trip to the pharmacy.  With dental implants you no longer have to worry about your dentures slipping and cracking while eating or speaking.  The look and act like your natural teeth and are secure.

Reliabilty - success rates for dental implants are very high and the longevity of a implant restoration can be a lifetime.  Of course good oral health, healthy gum tissue and good bone structure help increase the effectiveness.

Who Places Dental Implants?

Placing the titanium implant screws into your jawbone are often done by an oral surgoen, periodontist or prosthodontist however, some general dentists have taken extensive dental implant courses and perform there own surgeries.  Other dentists choose to restore the implants that have already been placed by a specialist.  Common sense prevails, make sure you choose a dentist that performs dental implant cases on a regular basis.  Ask to see their before and after cases and check credentials.  One of the leading dental implant schools is the Misch Institute started by Carl Misch, DDS.  He runs a leading implant dentistry training school that has trained well over 2000 dentists how to utilize dental implants in their practices.

  • IMPLANts – artificial roots

Lose teeth can be replaced by titanium implants.  This can be done under local anesthetics or if you wish for sleepsedation.

The amount of jawbone still present, determines the eventual success rate of the implant take.  Bone grafts may be required to solidify the jaw substance before starting the implant procedure.

  • jaw bone recovery – bone graft

  Bone graft

Jawbone recovery will create the proper foundation in the bone to receive the implants.

  Sinus lift

It is also possible to fill up the sinus-cavities in the upper jaw.  This is called a sinus lift.  The sinus lift adds volume through solidification of the natural air cavities in the upper jaw.

Four to six months after the sinus lift; your jawbone will be strong enough to receive the metal implants.

   

On picture 1: you can see that there is not enough bone in the upper jaw (1) for a solid fixation of the implant (2) in the sinus cavity.
On picture 2: artificial bone is being placed in the lower part of the air sinus with the aid of a special drill.  The bone thickening that ensues in the following months, assures a proper fixation of the required implants.
