REHABILITATION WITH DENTAL IMPLANTS
One or more implants restoration!
Prior to implant placement, a complete radiographic examination of the area has been performed, based on a special X-ray, cone beam computed tomography (CBCT). After this examination, the exact treatment plan is presented based on the anatomy of the area determining the appropriate placement of the implants and the dimensions of each one.
The choice of implant supported restoration depends on the treatment plan that fits in any case.
Thus, if only one tooth is missing, it is replaced by an implant in which a single crown is placed. In this case, the adjacent teeth remain untouched avoiding their sacrifice.
In cases where more teeth are missing, implants offer the possibility of a non-removable restoration, in cases where with the aid of conventional prosthetics, only a removable partial denture could be made.
In cases where all teeth are missing and the implants are selected as solution, prosthetic restoration may be either non-removable or a denture that is mounted on a fixed base (implants), remaining stable giving a sense of assurance and satisfactory chewing.
Thus, whatever the choice of prosthesis, the disadvantages of conventional total dentures are nullified.
