Implant Dentistry

Single Tooth Dental Implant

What exactly is a single tooth implant? Just as the name implies, a single tooth implant replaces a single missing tooth. The best thing about implants is that they replace the tooth root as well. Due to this feature, they easily become a part of the body.

Full Mouth Rehabilitation

It’s difficult to find an adult who’s never been to the dentist – we have all sat in a dental chair at some point in our lives. Most people agree that this is not the best experience they’ve had, and more than often, the fear of dentists will prompt one to skip their visits. This might become a reason for dental problems to spread in the oral cavity over time, creating necessity to treat all or almost all of a patient’s teeth rather than just one. This is called a full mouth rehabilitation.

All On 4 & All On 6

Have you heard of all on 4/6 dental implants, but you are not quite sure what they are? Here is all you need to know about them.
All on 4/6 restorations are full-mouth restoration procedures that use four or six dental implants to permanently attach a new set of replacement teeth to the jaw.
The implants that are used for this purpose can be installed all at once, thus cutting down on the usual 3-to-6-month waiting period.

Bone Grafting

Dental implants are a permanent solution to missing teeth but they may be impossible to get if you don’t have sufficient amount of bone in your jaw to provide the necessary support. Research indicates that many people who lose a tooth tend to lose the bone that serves as a base as well. A bone graft prepares your jaw for dental implants as it provides the support needed to make the implants both stabilized and secure. At BrightCrafts Dental, bone graft for dental implants is a standard and common clinical procedure we perform on our patients.

Sinus Lift

“Sinus Lift”, this procedure makes it easier to place dental implants. When the upper back teeth have been removed for a long time, the sinuses typically drop down to the place where the root used to be. To place a dental implant at the site, the sinus will need to be lifted to its original position and held in place using a bone substitute.

Snap On Overdentures

Implant-supported overdentures replace the upper or lower row of teeth. They have an anchor in the mouth – a kind of attachment that keeps the dentures in place. The overdentures stay secured as long as the patient doesn’t try to remove or reposition them.

Treatment of Failed Dental Implants

While dental implants are an excellent solution for tooth replacement, they can still fail. However, it’s important to note that failed dental implants are a rare occurrence. In fact, 95% of dental implant procedures are successful. But what if you have had a dental implants fitted and it becomes one of the very few that fail?
At BrightCrafts Dental, we offer treatment of failed dental implants during which we remove the failed dental implant and replace it with another.
