Implant therapies

Single tooth replacement

implant-dentaireA single missing tooth can be replaced using an implant and a single crown. This elegant option replaces missing teeth without ruining adjacent teeth.

Multiple teeth replacement

If several teeth are missing, the ideal solution is the replacement of a tooth with an implant and a single crown. However, if the bone volume is lacking, a chosen implant placement can provide a good reconstruction with a bridge over two or several implants.

Single tooth replacement remains the best solution considering occlusal wear to the bone, aesthetics and hygiene.

Full arch reconstruction with implants

Implants stabilising a removable appliance can fulfil full arch replacement. Retention for dentures can be provided using bars or ball abutments

Full arch reconstruction can be solved with a chosen implant positioning and a screw retained bridge.

The procedure is the following:

  • Bone volumes screening and implant planning are conducted with dedicated software.
  • A surgical guide allows precise implant positioning in the selected sites. The surgical guide allows a minimal approach without flap elevation for implant placement.
  • A fixed temporary prosthesis is screwed over the implants at the end of the session.

THE EDENTULOUS PATIENT AT THE BEGINNING OF THE APPOINTMENT WILL QUIT THE OFFICE WITH HIS IMPLANTS AND A TEMPORARY FIXED PROSTHESIS SCREWED TO THE IMPLANTS.

Full arch prosthesis can be provided after a six month bone healing around the implants.

Preventing periodontal disease

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is caused when bacteria in plaque (a sticky, colourless film that forms in the mouth) build up between the gums and teeth. When the bacteria begin to grow, the gums surrounding the tooth can become inflamed.
