Tooth replacement

Single tooth replacement

If a tool is lost or needs to be extracted, the best current solution for its replacement is to insert a dental implant onto which a ceramic crown is then fixed.

Four appointments are usually necessary for this type of treatment.

The first visit is a consultation which includes a clinical examination and analysis by various supplemental examinations, followed by a second visit lasting 30 to 45 minutes to insert the implant.

The third consultation, after the required osteointegration period, consists of making a cast.

The fourth and final visit is to attach the crown.

 

 

Multiple tooth replacement

If a tool is lost or needs to be extracted, the best current solution for its replacement is to insert a dental implant onto which a ceramic crown is then fixed.

Four appointments are usually necessary for this type of treatment.

The first visit is a consultation which includes a clinical examination and analysis by various supplemental examinations, followed by a second visit lasting 30 to 60 minutes to insert the implants.

The third consultation, after the required osteointegration period, consists of making a cast.

The fourth and final visit is to attach the crowns.

The implant solution presents numerous advantages

  • The absent tooth is replaced in a secure way (comfort, chewing efficiency, better elocution, self-confidence, etc.).
  • It avoids mutilating the adjacent teeth, as is necessary when a traditional bridge is created.
  • Highly reliable and long-lasting.

Alternatives to dental implants

  • A bridge which requires trimming the supporting teeth.
  • A glued bridge, not always possible, is less mutilating than a fixed bridge. The process is not always reliable as the bridge can unglue.
  • Removable devices remain uncomfortable and are not always accepted as a definitive solution. Some patients have psychological problems accepting them.
