FAQ for Dental Implant Patients
How do I find a dentist who places dental implants?

          First, check with your regular dentist. If he does not place dental implants, he usually works in concert with a dentist who does. Other reference sources are friends, relatives and acquatiences who are already benefiting from dental implants. You can also call your local dental society for a reference. Regardless of how you find a dentist, if you have a need for dental implant therapy, you will experience a quantum leap in what the dental profession has to offer you in terms of esthetics, comfort and function. 

How do Miniature Dental Implants work with denture wearers?

          Miniature Dental Implants are placed easily and simply into the jawbone. Their small size affords a number of advantages: Minimum trauma to the implant site, no need for surgical preparation, and immediate stability upon completion of placement. The top of the mini implant consists of a "ball" head which projects above the gum. Anywhere from two or more implants are placed, depending upon the dentist's analysis of the case. Once placed, either a new denture has been already fabricated or the patient's old denture may be used. Female retention caps are inserted into the inside of the denture and positioned to snap over the "ball" head of the implant. This greatly enhances retention, reduces denture movement and facilitates eating and speaking. Thousands of grateful patients all over the world have been blessed with this effective, easily placed, economical dental system.  

What about Mini Implants. What are they? How to they differ from regular implants?

          Miniature Dental Implants, or "Mini Implants" have become increasingly popular during the past decade. As of today, they are used extensively throughout the world. Miniature dental implants have a number of advantages when used properly. Their small size allows them to be placed in-between full sized implants during a full-mouth rehabilitation case. An esthetic, functional provisional bridge can then be made. In addition, miniature dental implants are also used to replace missing front teeth where the space between the missing tooth and the adjacent teeth will not permit the placement of a full-sized dental implant. Lastly, the miniature dental implant gains its retention in a different manner than standard sized implants. The small, screw-shaped miniature dental implant wedges itself and expands the bone as it is inserted. Upon the completion of insertion, the elastic properties of bone create an intimate contact between bone and fixture, thus rendering it extremely solid and stable upon placement. This allows it to be used to immediately replace a missing tooth or to stabilize loose dentures. The patient can walk out of the office comfortable and functional after just one visit.  

What is an "overdenture" dental implant restoration?

          The term overdenture is used to describe a denture that is secured and stabilized by dental implants. This type of denture typically requires two to four dental implants. The denture is removable by the patient.  

Can implants be used in conjunction with my dentures?

          Definitely. Implants have been of terrific help for patients who wear dentures. Dentures, in reality, are a poor substitute for natural teeth. People do not have the tactile sense when chewing that is transmitted through the roots of teeth; dentures are often ill fitting (especially lower dentures) and have but a fraction of the chewing and cutting efficiency of natural teeth. Ask any person who wears a lower denture and you will often find the myriad of problems they experience (despite how skillfully they have been made),Dental implants have created a revolution for denture wearers and are of immense help. If a denture wearer is not a clinical candidate or cannot afford to have his/her denture replaced by a full-mouth dental implant reconstruction which results in a "permanent" bridge being placed (finances and bone configuration are the two biggest obstacles to this treatment),  "Overdenture" dental implants can be the answer.  

Will I have to go with missing teeth for 3-6 months?

          Not at all.  Healing times vary, but if your dentist feels your individual case warrants a more extensive healing period he may prescribe a temporary restoration. A temporary tooth or bridge allows the patient to have esthetics and function immediately.  The patient can walk out of the dental office and enjoy socializing and a pleasant meal that very same night.  Another solution is to have a patient who is wearing dentures continue to wear their dentures until the implants are fully functional.  

How will I know which implant system to get?

          Many implant designs exist. Each dental implant patient presents a unique set of clinical factors. These differences (e.g. bone configuration, bone quality, area where implant is to be placed, type of dental procedure that is to be done, etc.) often demand specially sized and configured implants, thus the need for a wide variety of sizes, shapes and implant design features. In some cases, dental implants are designed to be placed into the socket immediately after a tooth has been extracted. Your dentist will first create a treatment plan for your case. He will then choose the most favorable implant configuration that will best suit your particular dental needs.  

Are there different types of dental implants?

          Yes. Dental implants come in a variety of sizes and shapes and can have a surface of titanium or titanium that is coated with a substance that encourages the bone to attach itself to the implant. The two main categories of dental implants are the full-sized implants and Miniature Dental Implants. The variety of sizes, shapes and configurations is necessary because of the wide range of anatomical differences that patients present. Such factors as amount of bone, bone quality, the shape and relationship of the upper and lower jaws and the amount of implants required to restore a mouth are some of the reasons for the different selection of implant systems.  

How long have dental implants been a treatment modality for missing teeth?

          Throughout recorded history, dental scientists have experimented with methods of restoring missing teeth with "permanent artificial replacements". The history of dental implants can be traced as far back as the ancient Egyptians. Modern dental implants and the appropriate techniques for their use were refined during the 1950's and 60's. An extensive period of clinical tests and improvements in implant design and delivery techniques started their general popularity in the 1980's. During the past quarter century, designs continued to improve and an ever-increasing number of dentists began to train and learn their delivery techniques. As of today, the art and science of placing dental implants has become extremely popular. It is a routine restorative procedure in many dental offices and is in use all over the world.  

How do dental implants work?

          Dental implants are surgically threaded into place in the upper and/or lower jaws. In some cases the gum tissue covers them for a period of three to six months. During this time, they lie undisturbed while the bone grows closer and closer to the implant and eventually attaches itself to it. This process is called osseointegration. In other clinical situations, crowns can be attached to the dental implants immediately.  

How do dental implants work?

          Dental Implants are titanium tooth "roots" that are used to replace missing natural roots. Once in place, they become firmly attached to the bone. After they are solidly affixed to the bone (the process is called "Osseointegration"), an artificial tooth is attached to the implant.
Dental implants can be used to replace single or multiple missing teeth. They are also of great help to people who wear dentures.
