Description

Dental (teeth) implants are the best solution that gives natural appearance and healthy teeth. Their biggest advantage is that they give back confidence in your laugh, and enables you to talk, eat and enjoy other daily activities without thinking about the tooth or teeth that you miss.

When are dental implants used?

Implants are not only recommended when a single tooth is lost, but also in combination with other teeth to uphold crowns, bridges, dentures, hybrid bridges such as All-on-4 implants. They are very successfully used in a completely toothless jaw, where they can carry tooth bridge (4-6 implants). They can also serve as anchors to complete denture (2-4 implants), so-called semi-fixed work, ensuring their stability and allowing patient comfortable and safe function of their teeth. In addition, insertion of single dental implant is much better solution when only one tooth is missing than rehabilitation with the tooth bridge because it is not necessary to grind adjacent healthy teeth to make them carriers of the bridge.

What are dental (teeth) implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth root replacements that are implanted into the jawbone, and function as a substitute for natural tooth roots. The implant is made of titanium anchors in the form of screws that are inserted into the jawbone instead of missing tooth. It also has a crown, bridge or removable dentures, in other words implantological superstructure, that are fixed on tooth root. The implant is made of biocompatible material that grows with the natural bone because the body does not recognize it as a foreign body.

Relevant treatments

Sinus lift (major)

It is possible to insert implant only if there is enough volume in the jaw bone that will hold the implant. When the tooth is lost, the volume of the bone can decrease. Sinus lift procedure consists of upgrading or adding bone to the the sinus cavity above the upper jaw.

Sinus lift (minor)

It is possible to insert implant only if there is enough volume in the jaw bone that will hold the implant. When the tooth is lost, the volume of the bone can decrease. Sinus lift procedure consists of upgrading or adding bone to the the sinus cavity above the upper jaw.

Personalize your knee replacement!

More than 600,000 knee-replacement surgeries are done in the United States every year, and as Baby Boomers continue to age, some say that figure will grow to 1 million within the next decade. Patients are increasingly choosing an option that allows doctors to build their patient’s knees.

Less than a year ago, climbing a flight of stairs would have been impossible for Amanda Fair-Evans. “I couldn’t even get out of the car, and I was like, ‘What is this?’” Fair-Evans said. The pain in her left knee was unbearable. Fair-Evans tried medication and cortisone shots and finally begged her doctor for surgery. “I have no quality of life,” Fair-Evans recalled saying. “I have grandkids and I want to play with my grandkids. Please give me a new knee.”

Dr. Mathew Pombo, an orthopedic surgeon, felt Fair-Evans would be a great candidate for a personalized replacement knee. A standing CT scan of a patient’s leg captures the alignment, followed by a three-dimensional printing process. “We can input components into the computer and print off a specific femur and a specific tibia that fits the bone perfectly,” Pombo said. It takes about six weeks for a medical company to create the custom knee. During surgery, doctors remove the damaged joint. Then, using individually designed tools, surgeons insert the new joint and cement it in. “It’s basically like putting a train on perfectly aligned train tracks,” Pombo said. “It should wear better.”

Five months later, Fair-Evans had her other knee replaced. Now she’s back to the things she loves to do. “(I’m) taking long walks, playing with my grandkids and dancing,” Fair-Evans said. “I haven’t danced in a long time.” Pombo said there is a faster recovery, less blood loss and easier range of motion when patients have the personalized 3D knee surgery.
