Visit Us to Help Solve your Dental Implant Problems
Missing teeth can be a nuisance when enjoying your favorite meal. They can also hamper your confidence causing you to shy away from smiling freely. Furthermore, missing teeth can affect your facial structure and features. To fix this problem, you need dental implants. At our dental office, you are guaranteed permanent dental implants for your missing teeth. However, there are instances that may prevent you from having dental implants installed. Here are some of the solutions that we offer at our dental offices in such instances.
Problem 1: Narrow bone below the empty space
The strength of the implant is gained from the titanium root once implanted into your jawbone. If you stayed for too long before replacing a missing tooth, bone loss might lead to a narrow bone tissue where the titanium is attached. Placing an artificial root may lead to a fracture of the jawbone if the bone tissue is thin. Our solution in such a case is to place a bone graft where there is a loss of bone tissue. Once the graft has taken, the dental implant will attach safely and restore your perfect smile.
Problem 2: you child is too young and still growing
In case the dental implant is for a child or a teenager who is still growing, the dental implant may be possible. The reason being, the implant is placed inside your jawbone and should not be placed where it will move around. The dental implant should not push the other teeth around. To solve this problem, our expert staff places a dental bridge to fill the gap. The bridge helps hold the replacement tooth. However, this is just temporary until your child is ready for a dental implant once they are adults.
Problem 3: The procedure will hurt
At our dental offices, our main agenda is to ensure that the stigma caused by most people associating dental procedures with pain is eliminated. We ensure that you are comfortable to go through most procedures with minimal pain if any. Naturally, dental implant placement requires oral surgery. It may be intimidating to the patients and hard to convince them that the procedure can be done quickly. The solution we offer at our professional dental offices we do not just provide a local anesthetic to dull the nerves, we also offer a pill that you take before you come for the procedure. You breathe in Nitrous oxide before the procedure making you melt away throughout the procedure.
Problem 4: Sinuses too close to the upper teeth
Sinus cavities are located just above the upper teeth. However, for some people, the sinus membranes may be a bit lower and may lead to a risk in installing a titanium root. Our experts solve this problem by creating a surgical opening to your upper jawbone and moving the sinus membrane higher up and filling the space with some bone material. The procedure is known as a sinus lift. Once it heals, our dental team will safely install a dental implant to the gap.
Problem 5: You need more than one tooth replaced
Dental implants are a great way to fill up a single space where you are missing a tooth. The feel natural, look natural, and function just like your natural teeth. However, it is not practical when you have to replace more than one tooth at the bottom or top part of your mouth all in one arch. You do not need to worry if you have a row of teeth in one arch missing. Our dental team of experts combines dentures and implants rather than use dental implants. If you are missing a number of teeth all in one arch, you can opt for traditional dentures. However, we combine implants and dentures. We manage to do this by using implanted roots to hold the dentures in place. The implanted roots will ease the pressure on your gums while you are eating. This combination is preferable as you get back your natural smile and you do not have to remove your teeth every time you need to clean them or while you sleep.
The above solutions are available at our dental office for those dental problems that prevent you from getting implants. Our offices offer you a welcoming relaxed atmosphere that keeps you at ease as you wait to regain that lost tooth and restore your natural smile while maintaining proper oral health.
