What Are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is an innovative permanent tooth replacement option. It is the next best thing to natural teeth in aesthetics and convenience. Unlike other tooth-replacement options currently available, dental implants can restore missing teeth completely.
Dental implant posts are made of body-safe titanium to serve in the place of your missing tooth and its roots. When surgically placed into your jawbone, the implant post bonds with tissue and bone through a process known as osseointegration.
The bonding process provides a lasting and secure foundation for your new artificial tooth that then becomes a permanent part of your jaw. A dental implant stimulates your jaw, maintains your youthful appearance, and prevents your healthy teeth from shifting out of position.
Our Implant Process
At Gresel Dental Hayward, we use digital x-rays, impressions, and hi-tech scanners to create precise 3D images of your teeth, jawbone, roots, and facial structure. This information is essential for evaluating your oral health and accurately planning for your dental implant treatment. The steps for dental implant treatment include:
- Planning: During the initial appointment, Dr. Avendaño will discuss your concerns and goals to provide you with personalized dental care. Our skilled team will also complete a precise examination of your mouth.
- Pre-treatments: If any dental issues were discovered during our examination, our dentist will recommend treatments to address these problems before proceeding with dental implants. That way, we ensure your treatment is long-lasting.
- Placement: Our dentist uses a CBCT scanner for computer-guided surgery and implant placement with excellent precision and skill during the dental implant placement. This involves using correct positioning and the right techniques. This procedure can take a few hours, depending on your specific case. We may sometimes use mini-implants when needed.
- Resting Period: After the implant placement, you will need a healing period before your final restorations are placed. Our team will give you detailed instructions regarding your follow-up care to speed up your healing and prevent infections.
- Restorations Appointment: Finally, we will schedule a final appointment to place your custom restoration and ensure it fits comfortably.
Pre-Implant Procedures for Treatment Success
Dental implants are ideal if you have missing teeth, healthy gums and sufficient jawbone density. Dr. Avendaño will carefully examine your teeth and gums to ensure that dental implants are the right option for you.
Based on the findings of your dental exam. Our Hayward dentist may recommend pre-implant procedures such as:
Gum Disease Treatment: If you have any active gum disease, our dentist will begin by addressing the condition before placing a dental implant. Gum disease often causes bone density to shrink, jeopardizing the stability of dental implants. By restoring your gums, dental implants will be more successful.
Bone Grafts: A bone graft is a dental procedure that improves jawbone density and volume to prepare it for a dental implant. The process involves adding bone grafting material into your jaw to strengthen it and improve your oral health.
Sinus Lifts: We may recommend a sinus lift if you have an insufficient amount of bone in your upper jaw where the implant will be placed. The procedure helps to add bone to your upper jaw, making it capable of holding an implant.
Tooth Extractions: If you have a severely decayed tooth, we may need to extract it to protect your remaining healthy teeth and minimize long-term bone loss.
We provide implant-supported restorations to replace missing teeth and provide long-term oral health benefits. Our team will restore your smile with top-quality implant-supported restorations, which include:
Implant-Supported Crowns: Dr. Avendaño crafts dental crowns to fit into the shape of your smile and match the color of your existing teeth. Once we secure the crown to your dental implant, it will last for several years when properly maintained.
Implant-Supported Dental Bridges: We use dental bridges to replace multiple missing teeth with a combination of crowns and artificial teeth). Your implants will act as the foundation for your replacement teeth, and the implant-supported bridge will keep other teeth from shifting.
Implant-Supported Dentures: Our dentist uses partial dentures supported by implants when you still have some healthy teeth remaining. Full dentures use six to eight implant posts to support an entire arch of natural-looking teeth.
What is All-on-4®?
If you need to replace an entire arch of teeth, Dr. Avendaño may recommend All-on-4 treatment. This procedure is designed to restore all the teeth on your top or bottom jaw.
We use our CBCT scanner and surgical guides to place the implants at the precise angle and depth needed to support your restoration. This method effectively restores the functionality and aesthetics of your smile. The All-on-4 procedure is ideal for someone with multiple missing, decayed, or damaged teeth.
