1 Don t miss life because of missing teeth, say...

2 Consequences of missing teeth Bone loss is responsible for many of the problems encountered after tooth loss. When one or more teeth are lost, the bone that surrounded the root no longer receives any stimulation from chewing and begins to wear away. Traditional methods of tooth replacement, including bridges, partials, and dentures, are unable to address this most important consequence of tooth loss. These methods are limited to replacing only the crown or visible portion of the tooth; they cannot replace the missing root. The problems resulting from bone loss may include cosmetic changes, health challenges, and even loss of some self-confidence. Tooth loss can cause: Defects in the bone Shifting and drifting teeth Bite changes Chewing difficulty Wearing down of remaining teeth Cracking and chipping of remaining teeth Changes in the jaw joint Facial changes

3 Losing all your teeth can lead to: Bone loss, which can change the structure of your face Lost muscle tone Increased appearance of wrinkles Difficulty biting and chewing Poor diet or poor nutrition Difficulty speaking Even with regular dentures you may still have: Sore spots under dentures Risk of fungal infections under dentures Frequent need for reline of dentures Fear of dentures slipping and clattering Some loss of the ability to taste food

4 Without implants, missing teeth lead to BONE LOSS 1. Tooth roots transfer biting forces to the bone. This keeps the bone healthy and in tact. 2. When the root is missing, the lack of applied force to the bone causes the bone to wear away. 3. Bone loss can cause an unsightly cleft. Anterior bony defect 4. When all teeth are missing, bone loss can dramatically affect the entire face. BONE LOSS

5 Missing teeth allow the surrounding teeth to SHIFT AND DRIFT 1. Opposing teeth can drop. 2. Teeth on either side can drift into the open space. Posterior bite collapse BONE LOSS

6 The many benefits of dental implants Help to minimize the bone resorption (deterioration) process Look, feel, and function like natural teeth Do not compromise adjacent teeth by grinding them down for a bridge or securing a partial denture to them Increase stability, making chewing more natural Eliminate the pain of ill-fitting dentures and partials Improve appearance Often easier to clean than traditional tooth replacements IMPLANTS ARE THE BEST STANDARD OF CARE FOR MISSING TEETH DENTAL IMPLANTS

7 Dental implants are most like natural teeth... Natural tooth crown with enamel outside and dentin inside Dental lab makes a beautiful porcelain crown that matches with your natural teeth. Implant abutment is the connector between the crown and implant. Periodontal ligament holds the tooth root into the bone Bone actually grows onto the surface of the implant to hold it securely into place. DENTAL IMPLANTS

8 Traditional bridge Before the science of implants, the only way to replace a missing tooth was with a tooth-supported bridge 1. Two healthy teeth must be ground down to anchor the bridge. 3. Bone loss may eventually leave an ugly dark space under the bridge. 2. Compromised healthy adjacent teeth can be more susceptible to future problems. 4. If either of the anchor teeth are lost, an additional healthy tooth must be ground down and a longer bridge put into place. TRADITIONAL BRIDGE

11 Implants are specially suited for immediate extraction sites Help to preserve bone by replacing tooth roots immediately following extraction The implant will fit the space left by the root Implants are shaped like natural teeth so they fit the space well Look, feel, and function like natural teeth Do not compromise adjacent teeth by grinding them down for a bridge or securing a partial denture to them Superior long-term esthetics Socket of extracted tooth Extraction site Implant in place in the empty socket IMMEDIATE EXTRACTION

15 Simple, comfortable procedure 1. Case planning 2. Implant placement 3. Healing period is approximately six weeks 4. Placement of the abutment on which the final crown will be placed 5. Final crown the beautiful new tooth is placed and you re done 1. Plan Your implant team will plan your case to ensure the best outcome. 2. Placement The specialist will place the implant and form the gum tissue around the exposed collar of the implant. 3. Healing The bone around the implant will grow solidly onto the implant in just a few weeks. 4a. Placement of abutment and temporary crown If the implant is in the esthetic zone, a temporary tooth restoration will be placed while the site heals. 4b. Temporary restoration When healing is complete, your restoring dentist will remove the cover screw and place the abutment. An impression will be taken and the final crown will be ordered from the lab. 5. Final crown When the final crown is returned from the lab, you will come in, the temporary will be removed, and the final beautiful crown will be put into place. TREATMENT SEQUENCE

16 There are many reasons to say Yes! to dental implants Will I be able to eat normally during the healing process? Yes. In most situations, you may eat what you like. You may be asked to avoid chewing in the area where the implants are placed for a short period after surgery, but once that time has passed, you can chew your food as usual. Can I get a temporary tooth to fill the gap during healing? Yes. In most instances, you can be provided with a temporary tooth to fill the area of the missing crown while the implant is healing. Your dentist will recommend the option for a temporary that is best suited for your situation. Is dental implantation a common surgical procedure? Yes. This procedure has been performed for decades on millions of patients. Implant specialists have extensive experience, and the Straumann implant is the result of more than 30 years of research and documented clinical success. Is the procedure relatively pain-free? Yes. Many patients report that having a tooth extracted is more traumatic than having an implant placed. The procedure is usually performed in the dental office under local anesthesia. YES! DENTAL IMPLANTS

17 Benefits of the Straumann Dental Implant System Unlike many other implant systems, in most cases, only one surgical procedure is required Fewer dental appointments Shorter treatment time for many patients, fabrication of the replacement teeth can begin in as little as six weeks and in some cases even the day of implant placement Clinically documented for more than 30 years Scientifically proven excellent success rate Highest standards of quality STRAUMANN SYSTEM

18 Restore the natural beauty of your smile with dental implants Your dentist will determine whether dental implants are right for you after an evaluation of your dental and medical history. Naturally, every case presents unique conditions that can affect the success of the dental implant treatment. Taking proper care of the implants will help to ensure long-term success.
