When a tooth is damaged or decayed to the extent that the cusps are missing, a crown is needed. If your tooth gets knocked out or broken, and it cannot be repaired, it is time for a dental crown.
Instant implants, or immediate load dental implants are designed specially to be able to be loaded right after implantation. This means no healing time, once the dental implant is inserted, it can be used to bite and chew immediately after the anesthetic has worn off. This of course raises many questions in patient’s minds; what is that structural difference that makes this possible? Is it worth it? Are there any consequences? With this article, I aim to explain a little bit about how these implants work, and how they are different from regular dental implants.
Sometimes a jaw is simply not able to house a dental implant. The bone density may be too low, and then the implant cannot be secured in the jawbone. If a tooth has been missing for too long, it may be the case that the alveolar tissue is so far gone down the path of disintegration that nothing is left of it, in these cases the jaw bone needs to be augmented. This can be done by way of bone augmentation therapies, such as a bone graft or the insertion of artificial bone material.
