Implant Case 1A. Missing Front tooth

Implant Before After - Tooth implant

This patient had lost his first left front tooth and wanted it replaced with an Implant.

Implant Before After - Gold implant abutmentWe placed an implant and a gold abutment on top of it.

 

 

Here you can see the gold implant abutment.

Implant Before After - Abutment implantThe abutment acts as the link between the implant and the implant crown.
Implant Before After - Crown implant/ gum contouringWe then restored the implant with a temporary crown and allowed time for gum contouring.
Implant Before After - Crown implant from aboveThe implant crown can be seen from above, sitting in harmony with the rest of the teeth in the jaw.
Implant Before After - Bonded crown implant abutmentFinally The definitive implant crown is bonded to the implant abutment.

 

 

Please note the natural looking gum margin around the implant crown.

Implant Case 1B. Immediate Placement in the aesthetic zone

The Patient below presented with a broken down root. We removed this root and placed an implant on the same day.

Implant Before After - Broken down root X-rayThis is the X-ray of the root showing a broken post and sub-optimal root canal treatment.
Implant Before After - Socket after removing rootThis is the socket once the root was removed. The extraction was done automatically causing no damage to the surrounding soft tissue and bone.
Implant Before After - Straumann implant as root extraction The Straumann SLActive implant is then inserted into the extraction socket on the same visit as the root extraction.
Implant Before After - Attached titanium abutment to the implantThe titanium abutment is now attached to the implant. The abutment acts as the link between the implant and the crown.
Implant Before After - Cemented crown teethThe crown is then cemented onto the titanium abutment with cement.

Implant Case 1C. Sinus tap procedure

The patient below presented with a gap in the upper 1st molar region. Her dentist had extracted the tooth a few months previously due to a failed root canal filling.

Implant Before After Sinus Tap Procedure - Sinus tap X-rayFrom this pre-operative X-ray one can see that the bone in the extraction region has resorbed and the sinus floor is very close and likely to be perforated if an implant is placed carelessly.
Implant Before After Sinus Tap Procedure - Strauman implant So we used the sinus tap technique to place a 10mm straumann implant and at the same time raise the sinus floor gently without perforating its membrane.

 

 

We also placed bovine derived Bio-Oss bone grafting material in the sinus floor region to promote bony growth at the implant base.

Implant Before After Sinus Tap Procedure - Strauman healing abutment over implant We placed a straumann healing abutment over the implant and closed the flap with restorbable sutures.

 

 

The implant will be restored with a crown once bone & implant integration has occurred.

Eight Weeks Later …

Implant Before After Sinus Tap Procedure - Absorbed implant after eight weeksThis is the implant site eight weeks later, fully healed and the sutures now resorbed.
Implant Before After Sinus Tap Procedure - Healing cap removed exposing the implant fully integratedThe Healing cap is now removed, exposing the implant that has fully integrated with the bone around it.
Implant Before After Sinus Tap Procedure - Crown/ abutment attached onto the implantThe screw retained crown and abutment is attached (screwed) onto the implant.

 

 

Please note the perfect contact with the adjacent teeth, the size and shape of the implant crown.

Implant Before After Sinus Tap Procedure - Crown appearance natural as possible The crown is now in perfect contact with the gum and is shaping it, making its appearance as natural as possible.
Implant Before After Sinus Tap Procedure - Access hole sealed with white filling materialThe access hole is now sealed with white filling material.

Implant Case 1D. Full mouth Rehabilitation

The patient below presented with multiple teeth with poor prognosis and asked for a full lower implant supported bridge followed by the same for the top jaw once the work for the lower jaw is completed.

Before After Full mouth Rehabilitation Implant - Upper/Lower teeth bone lossOn this X-ray you can see multiple upper and lower teeth with bone loss caused by previous gum disease.

 

 

Multiple lower back teeth have already been lost.

Before After Full mouth Rehabilitation Implant - Upper/Lower teeth extractedHere you can see the lower teeth extracted and the very back over-erupted upper molars also extracted.

 

 

The patient was fitted with a temporary denture for eight weeks to allow any residual infection to settle and healing to take place.

Before After Full mouth Rehabilitation Implant - Upper/Lower teeth with added six straumanWe placed 6 Straumann fast healing implants in the patient’s lower jaw in one session.

 

 

As her bone quality and quantity was good, she did not need any bone grafting.

The treatment was carried out under local anaesthetic without any pain or discomfort.

Before After Full mouth Rehabilitation Implant - Upper/Lower teeth implant placementWe will make a temporary bridge with twelve false teeth for these implants six weeks Implant Before After placement.

 

 

We will then make the permanent bridge six weeks later.

Bridge pictures will soon be available.

Implant Case 1E. Missing lower front teeth

Implant Before After Missing Lower Front Teeth - Lower arch four teeth implants/bridgeThis patient presented having lost his four front lower teeth.

 

 

We decided to place two dental implants and a four unit bridge to replace the lost teeth.

Implant Before After  Missing Lower Front Teeth - Lower arch planning model for four teethOur planning model shows where we planned to place the four front teeth.
Implant Before After Missing Lower Front Teeth - Two strauman dental implants in the jawWe placed two Straumann dental implants in the jaw and placed a four unit ceramic bridge on top of those implants.
Implant Before After Missing Lower Front Teeth - Final X-ray showing perfect bone/ dental implantThis is the final X-ray showing perfect bone and dental implant integration.

 

 

The bridge fits snugly on the two implants below.

Implant Case 1F. Missing front tooth

Implant Before After Missing Front Tooth - Missing two upper toothThis patient had lost her two upper first premolars. She wanted them replaced with two implants and also wanted a smile makeover for the rest of her teeth.
Implant Before After Missing Front Tooth - Tooth placement We first planned where the tooth should be placed with a trial smile.

 

 

The patient gave the go ahead once he saw the trial smile.

Implant Before After Missing Front Tooth - Final crown implant Here you can see the final crown held in by the dental implant in the jaw.

Implant Case 1G. Missing premolars

Implant Case 1H. Dental Implants after Bone Augmentation

Implant Before After Bone Augmentation - Teeth lost from gum disease This patient lost his front four teeth through gum disease.

 

 

Due to the bone loss caused by gum disease, we carried out block Bone augmentation using human bone from the tissue bank, six months previously.

For Dental Implants to be placed, he needed block bone grafting to supplement his current bone level.

Implant Before After Bone Augmentation - Strauman fast healing implant placedWe placed four Straumann SLActive fast healing implants and checked their final position.

 

 

The X-ray shows four implants placed in the ideal position.

The Final Crowns can be placed in around 8 weeks once bone-implant integration has taken place.

8 Weeks Later …

Implant Before After Bone Augmentation - Impnat/ iintregration after eight weeks After 8 weeks, implant and bone integration has occurred and at this point the temporary abutments can be attached to the implants.
Implant Before After Bone Augmentation - Screwed abutment impantsThe temporary abutments are screwed onto the implants below.
Implant Before After Bone Augmentation - Temporary cowns cemented Temporary crowns are then cemented to the temporary abutments below them.
Implant Before After Bone Augmentation - Gum in shape after two monthsThe purpose of the temporary crowns is to encourage the gum to take shape around the temporary crowns and create the normal knife edge gum shape between the crowns.

 

 

This process takes ~2 months.
