There are many advantages to invisible alignment. Let's fix those crooked teeth. #nycdentist
🔩💎 IMPLANT SURGERY 💎🔩
Dental implants work like artificial teeth roots. An actual implant is a small titanium screw that is surgically implanted into the jaw, below the gumline. The implant serves as the anchor to which an abutment is attached.
An abutment is the connector from the implant to the replacement teeth. It is placed on top of the dental implant so teeth can be anchored to the implant. The abutment screws into the dental implant and acts like the root under a crown of natural tooth, except it’s stronger and is not susceptible to decay. The abutment can be secured by screw or cement, depending on the specific needs of each individual patient.
TYPES OF IMPLANTS
Single Tooth Replacement
Dental implants are a great solution for single missing teeth. Unlike root canals they are not susceptible to disease or decay. Implants are strong, maintain bone structure, and are as easy to maintain as real teeth.
Implant-Supported Dental Bridges
Dental bridges often fail, because the supporting teeth can no longer support the bridge or the cement holding the bridge leaks, causing decay and more tooth loss.
A very common application of dental implants is as a denture replacement. This is so common that a special procedure has been created by Nobel Biocare to address this issue. The procedure is called the All-on-4® Treatment Concept.
Today, state-of-the-art guided surgical techniques are convenient alternatives to place dental implants and allow you to have the dental implant placed in a single session using keyhole surgery. This new method has significantly simplified the procedure, for both patients and surgeons. The major advantage of the guided surgical technique is the minimal amount of manipulation of the soft tissue due to keyhole surgery. This significantly reduces the healing time and the discomfort normally associated with traditional dental implant surgical techniques.

It’s never too late to make things right!.
After implant placement with their prosthetic rehabilitation, we noticed a lack ok keratinized tissue below the premolar and molar area.
We decided to do a vestibuloplasty with a free gingival graft to gain some thick tissue around implants and pull the muscle insertions downwards.
Nunca es tarde!
Después de la colocación de una correcta rehabilitación implanto soportada, notamos una ausencia de encía queratinizada e inserciones musculares altas en el área premolar y molar.
Optamos por realizar una vestibuloplastia más injerto gingival libre para ganar espesor de encía y alejar las inserciones musculares de la region periimplantaria. #freegingivalgraft #oralsurgery #mucogingival #oralsurgeon #autogenousbonegraft #mucogingivalsurgery #implantology #implantesdentarios
So nicely Explained in just 4 simple pics @sfdentalnerd
Read this awesomeness :- I still place the occasional crown, but more often than not, it’s because I’m replacing one. 🤷🏻♂️ It pains me to think of filling a hollow tooth with restorative material (build up), and then removing the remaining outside layer in order to “protect and strengthen” it. 😣 Oh, and while we’re at it, let’s place the margins somewhere difficult for the patient to clean, where plaque likes to accumulate, and in a place harder for dentists to monitor for recurrent decay. 🙄 It’s ok though, because if something goes wrong, we can do periodontal surgery, or extract it and put in an implant! 🙌🏽 Do I like to stir the pot or what?!? 🤣🥘 Turn on to our notification.
