Available in both Subperiosteal and Endosteal varieties, we offer the following implants:
Endosteal implants are placed straight into the jawbone. Usually shaped like little screws, cylinders or plates, they are the most commonly used variety of implant. A Custom-made Endosteal Implant is a cast surgical-grade titanium metal frame which is custom-made to fit snugly to your jawbone. When the implant is positioned on the bone, synthetic bone is put over and around the implant then your gums are closed over it. Then, removable dentures or repaired partial bridgework are anchored to the implant posts or a bar above the gums. Lastly, these implants are covered with bonus artificial bone alternative called Hydroxylapatite (HA). Your natural bone turns into the HA covering, forming a biochemical bond which holds the implant firmly in location.
Subperiosteal implants are placed under your gums and and on top of your jawbone. This variety of implant is most typically recommended for patients who have a shallow jawbone and are are not qualified for as invasive of a procedure as endosteal implants. Whereas regular endosteal dental implants are located straight in the jaw bone, subperiosteal implants are placed on top of the jaw bone right underneath the gums. They are consisted of a cage-like metal structure that is positioned over the arch of your jaw bone. In time, your jaw bone anneals to the metal structure, fixing and locking the implant root. Crowns or false teeth are connected to little metal rods that extend through the gums and are connected to this metal structure. If your Paramount specialist has actually recommended subperiosteal implants for you, among the reasons is most likely that your individual bone health would likely make recovery from a routine implant treatments excessively challenging.
The initial step in producing subperiosteal dental implants is to take an impression of your jawbone. Your Paramount dental professional can do this by taking a direct impression of your mouth with dental impression putty. Nevertheless, the impression can likewise be established with CT scan-generated images. Your dental professional will then use this impression to develop the metal structure that will certainly support your implants. When the structure is prepared, it will certainly be surgically embedded below your gums. Posts attached to the structure will remain above your gums.
When the tissue around the structure as recovered, your replacement teeth will be connected to the posts, and your procedure will be perfectly completed.
