Dental Implants By : Garabed Tashian Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Dental Implants By : Garabed Tashian
  • 2. What is a dental implant?
    • Dental implants are artificial teeth used to replace and support restorations to resemble real teeth.
    • They fall under both prosthetic dentistry and cosmetic dentistry.
    • Most common and most logical solution for fixing teeth damaged due to injury.
  • 3. Why do people need dental implants ?
    • Tooth decay
    • - usually occurs when person doesn’t care for teeth
    • Gum diseases
    • - people who don’t take care of their gums, most likely having periodontitis.
    • -Periodontitis is inflammation and infection of the ligaments and bones that support the teeth
    • Root canal failure
      • Those who did not have a successful root canals
    • Tooth loss
      • Due to injuries or bad care of teeth
  • 4. What are the implants made of?
    • Made of a titanium screw either having a rough or smooth surface
    • Usually made of titanium from grade 1-4, but sometimes 5
    • Titanium is used because it is a lot stronger than material used in dentures
    • The need for a strong metal is necessary to support the restoration after the procedure
  • 5. Titanium grades
    • Titanium grades 1-4 are commercially pure, meaning made of just titanium unlike grade 5
    • As the grade goes up, the stronger the titanium
    • Grade 5 contains aluminum and vanadium along with titanium, making it stronger than grades 1-4
  • 6. Osseointegrated implant
    • Most common form of dental implants used
    • Just simply when you connect the titanium screw to the person’s actual bone
  • 7.  
  • 8. Surgery
    • Before surgery the surgeon/doctor will have a consulting session with you
    • They will take a better look at the restoration sight in the mouth and determine various things such as, incision points, type of operation, etc.
    • Most of the time doctors use ct scans to take a better look at the person’s tooth
    • Sometimes a “stent” is placed on tooth to show where the incisions will be made
  • 9. Success and failure
    • This operation has a 95% success rate
    • Though the success rate is high, this doesn’t mean it doesn’t fail sometimes
    • Post-surgery patients must continue to properly take care of their teeth
    • The person’s jaw must be strong enough to support the new artificial tooth
    • Those with type 2 diabetes might not be able to undertake this surgery because of the lack of blood quality near the jaw
