Dental Implants are the best way to replace missing teeth. In our office we use different sizes of implants to best suit your unique situation. Thinner implants called mini-dental implants are great to replace smaller teeth. Wider diameter implants are placed in the molar areas and where there’s enough bone to support these dental implants. Using 3D technology our dentists measure the bone to know which size implant works best in your situation.
27 year old female patient was missing a premolar tooth because of cavities. Regular size implant was left to heal for six months. A porcelain ceramic dental implant crown was cemented for a beautiful outcome.
29 year old male patient lost his premolar tooth because the root canal procedure didn’t work out. A Standard implant was placed and allowed to heal for six months prior to making the crown. An impression was taken of the implant to make a ceramic porcelain implant crown.
Patient was missing his four upper front teeth due to a motorcycle accident. We were able to place three regular size dental implants. We allowed implants to integrate with the bone for six months to achieve best stability. Impression was then taken to create a 4-unit dental implant bridge.
Patient was missing a front upper tooth when a root canal failed. The implant procedure was successful. After allowing for six months of bone of integration. We restored the implant with a porcelain dental implant crown for an excellent outcome.
26 year old male patient was missing his lower incisor. The space was too narrow for a conventional dental implant. Dr. Peter Mann placed a thin diameter dental implant. The impression for a crown was taken the same visit. Two weeks later the final ceramic dental implant crown was cemented.
29 year old female patient is missing her uppercentral incisors due to an unfortunate car accident. In this situation her bone was too thin for a wide implant. 3.00mm in diameter hybrid size diameter dental implants were used. The patient got temporary crowns on her first visit. Two weeks later her dental implant crowns were cemented.
The upper front teeth were extracted because the root canals had failed. Due to the complex nature of this case, we worked with a wonderful periodontist, Dr. Scott Froum, who bone grafted the area and placed two dental implants.
We allowed six months of integration to bone for these dental implants. After six months, abutments were inserted Impressions were taken to fabricate porcelain dental implant crowns.
Patient has been missing her upper lateral incisor for many years. She’s been using a maryland bridge that falls off frequently. She’s been told in the past by dentists that she’s not a candidate for a dental implant due to limited space between the adjacent teeth.
A 3D CBCT scan was taken to carefully measure amount of space available for the implant placement. Procedure was performed in the computer to prepare for the real implant placement. Dr. Peter Mann decided there was enough space for a narrow 3mm implant to be placed.
At the time of procedure patient’s gum was also contoured with a laser for optimal esthetics. Implant procedure went smooth and patient left same day with a temporary crown.
Patient was missing two of her posterior teeth. Two implants were placed in addition to a bone graft. A porcelain bridge was fabricated to restore these two implants. The two implants feel and look like natural teeth. These implants will serve the patient well for many years to come.
A molar tooth porcelain dental implant crown. It has a small hole on top to give access to the implant abutment screw. In case we need to remove the abutment and implant crown, this hole will provide easy access. The hole is sealed with a composite resin filling which can be easily removed when needed. This crown is cemented to the dental implant abutment.
Patient fractured his upper molar tooth. Since the tooth could not be saved, it was extracted. A dental implant was placed. Six months later we created a beautiful implant crown to replace the missing molar. The crown looks and feels like a natural tooth molar tooth. Patient is comfortable chewing all types of food with this dental implant.
Patient was missing two of her upper teeth. Implants were ready to restore six months after placement. We decided to splint (connect) the implant crowns as a bridge for additional strength. When crowns are splinted and patient bites on one of her crowns, the strength of both implants supports the crown.
In this video, our patient was missing two molar teeth. Implants were placed. Six months after implant placement we took impressions to restore the two implants with an implant bridge. The result is beautiful and will greatly improve patients’ ability to chew. We expect these implants to last our patient many years to come.
The Video illustrates all the steps for the implant process from start to finish.
Originally, a premolar with a root canal failed for one of our patients.
The tooth was extracted and replaced with a dental implant.
After six months of healing we made the patient a beautiful natural-looking porcelain implant crown.
The Video below shows how two natural looking implant crowns are cemented in our patients mouth.
