General knowledge about implants:
1) Dental implants are the perfect solution for replacing a missing tooth without the need to prepare the neighboring teeth to create a bridge.
2) Used to replace multiple missing teeth or even absence of teeth in both jaws. Unlike the traditional removable dentures, dental implants are fixed and stable in their position.
3) A combination of our dental implants and esthetic crowns provide an astonishing change to the facial appearance and restores your juvenile looks.
1) After the diagnosing the patient using the digital 3d x-ray, the specialized operator selects the implants to be placed according to available bone’s height and width, nasal sinus position and vital structures approximation.
2) The dental implants are then virtually positioned in their future positions on the digital scan and shown to the patient.
3) Surgical guides are then created using computers to help in implant placement and positioning which provide the same angulation and position of the implant as planned without opening surgery.
4) The patient is then prepared for the implant placement procedure using pain free approaches and advanced implant technology to ensure maximum comfort.
Sinus Lifting Procedure with implant placement:
General Knowledge :
A sinus lift is a surgical procedure that adds bone to your upper jaw in the area of your molars and premolars. It’s sometimes called a sinus augmentation and is used to provide space for dental implants to be placed. The bone is added between your jaw and the maxillary sinuses, which are on either side of your nose. To make room for the bone, the sinus membrane has to be moved upward, or “lifted and the implants are placed in the bone added.
1) Many people who have lost teeth in their upper jaw — particularly the back teeth, or molars — do not have enough bone for implants to be placed because the sinus membrane grows to fill the missing space.
2) The maxillary sinus may be too close to the upper jaw for implants to be placed. The shape and the size of this sinus varies from person to person.
3) The sinus also can get larger as you age therefore blocking any chance for a dental implant therefore the sinus lifting procedure is the treatment of choice.
4) Tooth loss that has led to loss of bone because once teeth are gone, bone begins to be resorbed (absorbed back into the body). If teeth have been missing for a long time, there often is not enough bone left to place implants.
1) After the diagnosing the patient using the digital 3d x-ray, the specialized operator locates the sinus membrane and takes the necessary measurements on how much space needed for the bone augmentation and dental implants.
2) Planning the entire surgery on the 3d xray gives the operator all the control needed for the operation and prevents any errors.
3) The surgeon will cut the gum tissue where your back teeth used to be. The tissue is raised, exposing the bone. A small, oval window is opened in the bone. The membrane lining the sinus on the other side of the window separates your sinus from your jaw. This membrane is gently pushed up and away from your jaw.
4) Granules of bone-graft material are then packed into the space where the sinus was. The amount of bone used will vary, but usually several millimeters of bone is added above the jaw.
5) Once the bone is in place, implants are placed in the same visit or after the grafted material has osseo integrated with the jaw bone.
