COURSE OF TREATMENT


INSTALLING THE NEW TOOTH – STEP-BY-STEP
The course of treatment described here is one of several options available.
Consultation
Consult your dentist to find out what the best solution is for you, given your specific condition.

Step 1: Before the procedure

The dentist makes a first examination and takes one or more x-rays of the area to prepare for the procedure.

Step 2: Installing the implant

The implant is installed. At this time, a temporary tooth is provided that allows you eat and function like normal almost immediately. The implant will need a few months to integrate with the jawbone before the next step is taken.

Step 3: Attaching the new crown

The final step is the placement of the permanent ceramic tooth. The new tooth is installed for life. No additional treatment is needed.

Step 4: End result

You should expect the new tooth to fit and function just like a natural tooth. Do your usual dental hygiene to keep the tooth and gum around it clean.


MULTIPLE TEETH REPLACEMENT

Benefits with fixed bridge on implants:
  • In this case, when replacing three teeth in the far back of the mouth, a fixed bridge anchored to dental implants is the only fixed alternative. Traditional dentures can't offer the same stability or function.
  • Having dental implants replacing your lost back teeth will give you new, unparalleled strength and stability that allows you to eat what you want. It will also preserve your jawbone and facial appearance.
  • The only fixed alternative in this situation.
  • A stable, secure solution that lets you eat what you want Preserves your facial appearance and prevents bone loss


Treatment:

After the initial examination, you can expect 4-5 additional visits until the final fixed bridge is permanently attached. It is normal to experience some minor bruising and swelling in the gum and soft tissue afterwards. Any discomfort is usually treated with an ordinary painkiller. You should expect to be able to work the next day.

COURSE OF TREATMENT
INSTALLING THE FIXED BRIDGE– STEP-BY-STEP
The course of treatment described here is one of several options available. Consult Dr. Jain to find out what the best solution is for you, given your specific condition.

1: Before the procedure Three teeth at back end of the mouth are missing. The only real replacement alternative is installing a fixed bridge. The bridge contains all teeth in one piece and is anchored on dental implants.

2: Installing the implant First, the implants are installed. this is normally done in a single session. A temporary bridge may be placed at the same time, making it possible for you to function like normal almost immediately after leaving our office.

3: Attaching the bridge The implants need to integrate with the jawbone before the permanent bridge is attached. this is normally done 1-2 months after the implant installation. The time will vary, depending on the teeth affected and the esthetical demands.

4: End result The new bridge will handle all the pressure that your strong, natural back teeth did. You will have a stable and secure solution that allows you to eat what you want.

ALTERNATIVES TO FIXED BRIDGE
Removable partial denture
The alternative is often perceived as uncomfortable and a bit complicated to use. Function can’t be compared to that of a bridge. this denture is made of plastic and metal, which affects its look. It is quite expensive to fabricate due to its many parts. However, the installation process is simple, and natural teeth are spared.

Resin-bonded bridge
This alternative has some clear advantages: it is quickly installed, functions well and, since it is made of ceramic, it gives a high esthetic result. Moreover, natural healthy teeth aren't affected. But it is not very permanent. The resin-bonded bridge will eventually come off – probably after just a couple of years – and will then have to be reinstalled.
