SHOULD I GET AN IMPLANT OR A BRIDGE TO REPLACE MY MISSING TOOTH?
In most cases an implant is preferred because you don’t have to cut down the two adjacent teeth to place crowns. When you cut down natural teeth it increases their susceptibility to cavities and root canals are sometimes necessary. Implants don’t get cavities and are easier to clean. In some cases if crowns are already present and need replacement a bridge is an option. This makes flossing much more difficult since you must thread under the bridge to clean it.
TEETHTODAY® IMPLANT TECHNIQUE
The TeethToday® technique is specifically designed to use only four implants that are available for immediate function. TeethToday® implants do not typically require bone grafting, so they are an ideal solution for patients with areas of low bone density or volume.
Before the procedure begins, you will be comfortably numbed so that you will feel no pain or discomfort during the procedure. Four dental implants are then placed according to where the bone volume is best. Once the implants have been placed, the new or existing denture is used as the framework for a temporary set of teeth that will be attached that day.
Once the bone has fully integrated with the implant (3-6 months), the temporary teeth are removed and the new, final set of teeth are made and anchored into place permanently.
If I Have a Loose-Fitting Denture, Can Dental Implants Be Placed to Stabilize It With “All on 4/Teeth Today?”
Yes, two implants can almost always be placed to stabilize a lower denture. In fact, four or more implants can be placed to produce a strong, firm bite – often the same day – for either upper and/or lower arches. Dr. McCawley uses a specialized, full-arch implant “All on 4” protocol that places five implants for improved esthetics and better long-term success. You will be able to eat and chew normally again!
Remember that wearing dentures accelerates the bone loss of the jaw and results in the loss of support from your facial muscles, causing you to look older more quickly.
Implants can help stop this loss, restore good chewing, and give you a younger appearance in one day.
