During the last 20 years, dental implants have become a desirable alternative to other methods of replacing missing teeth. Excellent success rates and a range of available options give dentists a variety of new ways to treat and replace lost teeth.
Cement in the sulcus continues to be a leading factor in the causes of implant failure. Failure occurs due to the bacterial build-up surrounding the implant area. Over time, inflammation and infection can occur when left untreated. A common situation leading to this is the use of stock abutments in deep sub-gingival areas where a custom abutment should be the standard choice. In general, preset margins from stock abutments used in deep sub-gingival situations make cleaning of cement difficult to nearly impossible. In areas requiring tissue customization and displacement, there was a virtual agreement in recommending customized abutments.
In the same consensus with customized abutments, there was growing awareness of material recommendation from zirconia to a much stronger material due to the rise of zirconia abutment fractures. With customized abutment software, from companies like Nobel-Biocare and Zimmer, zirconia is no longer technically prohibited in posterior situations as it was in the past .
The procedures by dental implant machine needed to put in a dental implant can take some time. It is a surgical procedure that you can have performed. The procedure involves placing an implant into your upper or lower jaw, wherever the implant is required. A screw is then positioned into the implant area and the gum tissue replaced over the implant to help secure it into place. This first step is then allowed to heal properly before the next step occurs, where a post gets placed so that the artificial tooth (which is the dental crown), can be affixed securely to it in the implant, giving you the tooth you want.
Because your new “fake teeth” actually perform like the real thing, you still need to practice the same oral habits:
Use a toothbrush with soft bristles that can reach all your teeth.
Buy a new toothbrush every three or four months or earlier when bristles fray.
Don’t forget to brush your tongue as well. The tongue harbors bacteria that can lead to tooth decay and gum disease
Floss daily to remove food particles and bacteria from between teeth and under the gum line
The popularity of gold hue CAD/CAM implant abutments soared last year, and it is now our first choice for implant cases. The warm gold color of the abutment has a reflective property you don’t get from darker colored or silver abutments. The reflective properties create a beautiful aesthetic when combined with an all-ceramic restoration. The Atlantis Titanium Gold Hue are stronger, have a beautiful gold color and cost less than zirconia, making them the best option for all three considerations. IPS e.max is our first choice for restorative materials over these gold-hue abutments.
