Crowns and conventional bridges or dentures may not be your only options when replacing missing teeth. Surgically placed below the gum, dental implants integrate to the jawbone and serve as a base for individual replacement teeth, bridges or a denture. They can be used to replace any tooth including molars!
Implants offer stability because they integrate to your bone. Integration of the implants into your jaw also helps your replacement teeth feel more natural and some people find the secure fit more comfortable than conventional substitutes.
Candidates for dental implants need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. A thorough evaluation by Dr. Prouty will help determine whether you are a good candidate for dental implants.
How are "Computer Guided Implants" different? Using CEREC Cad Cam and 3D XG technology, Dr. Prouty can precisely place the implant in the ideal location using a surgical guide. This guide eliminates the need to cut a flap in the gum to expose the bone underneath, which in turn eliminates the need for sutures making it much more comfortable for the patient. No downtime is needed immediately after placement! Go right back to your normal activity.
In addition, using the surgical guide allows Dr. Prouty to place the implant in just the right position avoiding contact with nerves and sinuses.
It just makes sense to go guided!
After a course of healing, you will return for the crown and abutment. However, sometimes we're able to place the crown at the same time as the implant. If this is not suitable for your tooth, we'll suggest an alternative to fill in the gap until the permanent crown may be placed.
