CEREC – Ceramic reconstruction
If it becomes necessary to replace a missing tooth with a bridge, it is also necessary to refine the neighbouring teeth. This ensures that any inserted bridge be well positioned . In this case it may be necessary to refine healthy teeth. However, an additional option in such instances is a tooth implant. These are simply inserts that are fitted into the jaw bone, and can replace a missing tooth, a group of teeth, or an entire set of teeth. The teeth implants can prevent a complete loss of teeth in many numerous ways and thus avoid aid the patient in avoiding removable prosthetics.
Implants are used as a replacement for roots of a tooth that may have been lost and are fitted directly into the jaw-bone. They are made from a biologically neutral pure titanium, which the human body readily accepts. The jawbone grows around the implants during the healing process, making the implant well grounded and extremely solid. The healing process varies on an individual basis and can take anywhere between 3 to 6 months. During the healing period the implant is positioning itself under the mucous membrane, where it is effectively protected from infections. We can fit additional prosthetics at any time during the healing process. Once healed, a second superstructure is fitted, that replaces the crown of the tooth. A new tooth, a crown, or a bridge is then fitted onto the superstructure.
A consultation with one of our Dentists, a thorough examination of the area in question, and an X-Ray must precede any implant procedure. It is important for us to treat cavities on other teeth first as well as any infections in the mouth must be prevented from spreading to the place of an implant. A detailed treatment programme will only be agreed upon after a complete assessment of the teeth and mouth.
