Stability Even In Minimum Bone Volume

By tilting the two implants in the back, longer implants can be used in patients who have lost quite a bit of bone in their jaw, increasing bone-to-implant contact and reducing the need for bone grafting. The tilted posterior (back) implants can be anchored in better quality bone, reducing any rocking that may occur and thus improving support of the implant-supported denture.

Planning With NobelGuide Treatment Concept

The All-On-4® Treatment Concept can be planned and performed using NobelGuide to ensure accurate diagnostics, planning and implant placement. The NobelGuide Software allows the dentists at Sacramento Surgical Arts, PC to view detailed diagnostics such as identification of available bone, virtual implant placement according to the anatomical situation and prosthetic needs, and gives your dentist the ability to order an individualized surgical template. NobelGuide ensures guided and therefore exact implant placement.

Prosthetic Flexibility

With the All-On-4® Treatment Concept, our patients benefit from immediate implant-supported restoration, as a temporary tooth restoration is screwed onto the implants right after surgery. Final solutions for the All-On-4® Treatment Concept include both fixed prostheses, such as NobelProcera Implant Bridge Titanium with acrylic veneering, or individual NobelProcera crowns cemented to the bridge framework, and removable solutions, such as acrylic overdentures on a NobelProcera Implant Bar Overdenture.

Increased Efficiency

The All-On-4® Treatment Concept allows the dentists at Sacramento Surgical Arts, PC to streamline the time needed for dental implant treatment, giving you the smile you’ve always dreamed of in less time. To learn more, contact us today!

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are meticulous installments that are used to re-establish the root of a lacking tooth. The titanium screws and cylinders are secured into the jawbone where it can reinforce a single or multiple teeth bridge, tooth crown or support partial or full removable dentures.

The purpose of dental implants is to provide both a functioning and supportive connection between the dental implant and your bone. This procedure is done through what is called osseointegration, which fastens the root of the dental implant to your jaw bone. The oral surgeons at Sacramento Surgical Arts, PC have several years of experience in establishing dental implants. Read more.

Multiple Implants

Here at Sacramento Surgical Arts, PC we understand that missing even one tooth can be traumatic. Missing several teeth can be devastating. In the short term, missing teeth can hinder clear speech, and limit your diet. The long-term effects are even worse, putting you at greater risk for bone degeneration, facial collapse, the spread of infection to hard and soft tissue, and loss of even more teeth.

The good news is that there are many solutions available to you, and we are here to help you determine which one is right for you.

The best solution for replacing a missing tooth is a dental implant. A dental implant is either a ceramic or metal screw that is fused to the jawbone. An artificial tooth is then attached to the screw to give the illusion of a natural tooth.

If you decide that a dental implant is not right for you, you can also get a tooth-supported fixed bridge, a removable partial denture, or a resin-bonded bridge.

Here at Sacramento Surgical Arts, PC we understand that missing even one tooth can be traumatic. Missing several teeth can be devastating. In the short term, missing teeth can hinder clear speech, and limit your diet. You may feel too embarrassed to smile and experience a lack of confidence, hindering your interactions with others. The long-term effects are even worse, putting you at greater risk for bone degeneration, facial collapse, the spread of infection to hard and soft tissue, and loss of even more teeth.

The good news is that there are many solutions available to you, and we are here to help you determine which one is right for you.

Implant Restorations

Did you know that people have been trying to replace missing teeth with implants for the last 4000 years? How lucky are we to be alive during a time where we can create an artificial tooth that almost perfectly imitates natural teeth in form and function?

Implant restorations, also known as dental implants, are the gold standard solution for replacing missing teeth. The term implant refers specifically to a titanium post that is secured to the jawbone. A restoration, in the field of dentistry, is a life-like artificial tooth that is secured to the implant to create the illusion of a natural tooth.

Like natural teeth, restorations are permanent, functional, and aesthetically pleasing. It should also be noted that only solutions with implants can prevent jawbone degeneration and promote blood flow beneath the gums. However, you should know that the process can be lengthy, and in some cases, take upwards of a year depending on your pre-existing health.

Dentures

There is no doubt about it, dentures have come a long way in the last several decades, and they do have several benefits many patients find quite attractive. Unlike the other options available to you, dentures do not require oral surgery. If you experience complications with your dentures, they can be easily modified and repaired.

Every day dentures become more realistic and customizable. Whether you are just replacing one tooth or several, we can make a prosthetic that works for you.

However, there are still some drawbacks to dentures. Patients will have to modify their diet and might struggle with certain pronunciations. These challenges occur because denture prosthetics are not as strong or as secure as your natural teeth. This movement generates friction, which can irritate the skin and cause sores.

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is a prosthetic, artificial tooth, or even dental resin that is strategically placed in the empty pocket or pockets between either natural teeth or implants. The natural teeth or implants are referred to as posts, and they support the prosthetic, creating a metaphorical bridge that closes the once empty gap in your arch. This option can be great for people who are only missing a few teeth.

Implant Secured Dentures

An implant secured denture is a hybrid solution for those who are missing all of their teeth in either or both of their upper or lower arches. There are many different types of implant secured dentures, and so it is hard to speak broadly about this solution. Typically, implants will strategically be placed along the arch where there is enough available bone mass to support the implant. After the implants are installed, a denture like prosthetic will be attached to the implant.

Unlike normal dentures, implant secured dentures are long lasting, durable, and fully functional. They are also aesthetically life-like. Most implant secured dentures do not need to be removed and are a permanent solution to significant tooth loss.

Single Tooth Replacement

The best solution for replacing a missing tooth is a dental implant. A dental implant is either a ceramic or metal screw that is fused to the jawbone. An artificial tooth is then attached to the screw to give the illusion of a natural tooth.
If you decide that a dental implant is not right for you, you can also get a tooth-supported fixed bridge, a removable partial denture, or a resin-bonded bridge.

Why Get A Dental Implant

The benefits of choosing an implant restoration far out-weigh the negatives. Implants are permanent, they prevent bone loss, and are aesthetically pleasing. An implant functions almost exactly as a natural tooth would. Some patients report not being able to distinguish the difference. More importantly, restorations will not negatively impact the health of adjacent teeth or gum tissue, and if cared for properly, will last you upwards of thirty years.

What Is A Dental Implant

A dental implant is either a ceramic or metal screw or post that is secured to the jaw. The term restoration refers to the crown or artificial tooth that is then attached to an abutment, which connects the restoration to the implant.

Understanding The Dental Implant Process

The implant restoration process can be complicated and lengthy, depending upon the patient and their pre-existing oral health. Before you begin the process, Jagdev Heir, DMD, MD will examine you, take X-rays, and determine if restoration is right for you. If you are eligible, Jagdev Heir, DMD, MD will assess whether or not enough bone mass is available for the implant to fuse itself to in a process called osseointegration.

When we lose our teeth, our jaw bone recedes, which can eventually lead to facial collapse. Implant restoration is the only solution that prevents recession of the jawbone. If you do not exhibit adequate bone mass than you will have to undergo a bone grafting procedure.

After you have fully recovered, we will surgically secure the implant post into the jaw, and attach a metal abutment to the implant. You will again be sent home to heal. You will return once the inflammation in the gums from surgery has dissipated, and the implant has fully fused to the bone. Impressions will be taken of your mouth and sent to a lab where your customized artificial tooth will be built. When the lab is done, Jagdev Heir, DMD, MD will attach the restoration to the metal abutment.

The whole process can take upwards of a year, but the results are exceptional!
