Are you looking for a tooth replacement option that is right for you? We offer a variety of dental implant solutions that can help you meet your tooth replacement needs. While we also offer both traditional single implants and All-on-4 procedures, our mini dental implants have a special place in our service offerings. These are our most versatile implant option and can be used in a variety of different cases. Read on to learn more about mini dental implants.
The average dental implant procedure takes 3 - 4 visits. The first visit is to x-ray the area and take an impression for a surgical guide and a temporary prosthesis to cover the implant. The next visit is to place the implant. A local anesthesia is applied to the area (any additional sedation is no longer necessary unless deemed by the dentist). The dentist will then make a minor incision to place the implant.
The load bearing tolerance of the cortical bone is many times higher than that of the spongious bone [Figure1]. History Basal implants were developed and improved in various stages, by the German and French dentists primarily. Single-piece implant was first developed and used by Dr. Jean-Marc Jullietin 1972. His design was available in two sizes .Dr.Gerard scortecci, a French dentist in the mid 1980s presented an improved basal implant system complete with matching cutting tools. Two types of implants were developed by him, called “Diskimplants”, with internal and later external connectors attached to

The goal of dentistry is to replace missing teeth to restore masticatory function and aesthetics. Treatment of such situation is either removable prostheses or a fixed bridge framework, which not only cause discomfort to the patient but also involves the preparation of one or more healthy teeth.1 Autotransplantation involves the transfer of tooth from one portion of alveolus to another site in the same individual. This site may be either an extraction site or a fresh surgically prepared alveolar segment.2 A tooth germ with early Hertwig’s epithelial root sheath (HERS) formation can be successfully transplanted if it is well placed in the bony socket and wrapped with soft tissue.3 A successful outcome of a transplanted tooth provides improved
Vertebrates are known to be animals with backbones. Tooth reduction is one of the major evolutionary trends that developed among major vertebrate groups that allowed for the transition from aquatic to terrestrial life. Evolution of limbs and being able to breath air are other evolutionary trends that took placeThese trends include improved respiration and protective and insulating body coverings. More over the transition from water to land also included changing to more efficient reproductive methods like having a placenta for some animals or egg layers for other animals. Lastly, the morphology of organisms evolved such that for land they would have paired, muscular appendages used for crawling and
A periodontist performs a variety of treatments on his patients which include: Dental implants Scaling and root planning Osseous surgery Gingivectomy/gingivoplasty Crown lengthening Connective tissue grafting So, if you choose Periodontology as your field of specialization, it can offer several advantages: • New techniques and diagnostic tools keep evolving in Periodontics and make the field challenging. • Missing teeth can interfere with the patient’s ability to eat, smile, and talk in a normal way. Thus, you can raise their self-esteem through your treatment and make a difference in their lives. • The field is rewarding in terms of job opportunities and earnings. Career opportunities after specialization in Periodontology Choose from a vast array of jobs after completing your post-graduation: I.
Dies and models are created using the 5 gypsum products; impression plaster (Type 1), model plaster (Type 2), dental stone (Type 3), dental stone with high strength and low expansion (Type 4) and dental stone with high strength and high expansion (Type 5). In dentistry the gypsum products that are being used are chemically similar
They differ in morphology and function. There are mainly 4 types of teeth in the human dentition. They are: i. Incisors- • Single, conically-rooted teeth with relatively sharp and thin edges which essentially mean they can be used to make an incision or cut. • Present at the forefront, there are 8 incisors in total; two on each side of the midline on both maxillary and mandibular jaws. • Incisors on either side of the midline are called central incisors and teeth neighbouring them are called lateral incisors.
