Replace Missing Teeth

Teeth may be missing due to previous extensive cavities, cracks gum disease, accidents or some teeth were missing since birth.

Three Main Ways to Replace Missing Teeth :

1. Dental Implant

Dental implants are ideal to replace 1 or 2 missing teeth, because dental implant does not need to rely on adjacent teeth being cut in order to replace the missing teeth.

Dental Implant Involves The Following Steps :

  • 1.Intra oral digital video scan of the area of missing teeth in the mouth.
  • 2.3D xray of the mouth.
  • 3.3D plan of the implant type and location in the mouth.
  • 4.Implant placement in the mouth using a 3D planned surgical guide.
  • 5.Wait 3-6 months for the implant to integrate with the jaw bone.
  • 6.Place a custom made connector and ceramic crown on to the implant.

2. Dental Bridge

In some cases, the area of missing tooth/teeth is too narrow to fit a dental implant. Thus, a dental bridge may be needed instead of an implant to replace missing teeth.

The bridge requires 1 tooth on each side of the missing tooth/teeth area to be shaped, in order to support the bridge. The bridge process may require 1 to 2 appointments to complete the bridge fitment.

3. Dental Denture

In cases of several missing teeth, a denture may be required.

If implants are needed to significantly increase the denture retention in the mouth, the implants are inserted first. After the 3-6 months of implant integration with the jaw bone, the denture process may begin.

Dental Denture Involves The Following Steps Over Weekly Appointments:

  • 1.Impression of the missing teeth area in the mouth.
  • 2.Try-in of the proposed denture, whereby the teeth are still set in wax.
  • 3.Fitment of the denture in the mouth.
