The most popular treatment by far for replacing missing teeth are dental implants for their natural look, feel and ability to function like real teeth. Implant treatment may sound complex compared to traditional dentures and bridges, however, it is often straightforward and can be done in a few appointments.
At CARE Implant Dentistry these are the 3 simple steps to replacing missing teeth.
STEP 1: Initial Consultation, Pre Surgery Exam & Planning (Approx 1hr)
It all starts with a 3D CT scan to reveal vital bone, tooth, tissue structure in height, width and depth. We conduct a full dental examination, a series of photographs, impressions and detailed charting as well as a periodontal exam. We will discuss your medical history and also answer any questions you may have about any aspect of the procedure. With this detailed information we design an effective treatment program, tailored just for you. This diagnostic also enables us to give you a firm, fixed price for the entire tooth replacement treatment.
STEP 2: Surgery
By now you have already received a detailed treatment plan and procedure. If you are having teeth removed, this may need to be done first. Your surgeon will then precisely place the small, titanium implants into your jawbone. The implants will support a set of temporary replacement teeth if required or another form of temporary may be issued. The length of the surgery will vary depending on the number of implants.
STEP 3: Post Operative Checks & Final Restorations Issue
In the next several months, you will occasionally return to us for post-operative checkups (which are included in your fixed cost) to monitor the healing process in preparation for your final restorations. Final restorations are then made with either a Titanium or Zirconia ceramic support structure, which gives them the durability and longevity. They will be adjusted to fit perfectly (and permanently) on your healed gums.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner
