Dental Implant Installed on an Angle – what can I do to fix?
Correction of angled implants
Jan 24, 2018
If the implant was placed at an angle, the angle can be corrected by using angled or custom abutments. I would recommend doing a zirconia abutment and a cement retained crown for any front tooth as it is more esthetic, especially if the implant was angulated. Please see your dentist to discuss these options.
I need information about implants. Is it possible to do them after I had surgical removal of my
Dental implants as a treatment option
Jan 24, 2018
Yes, it is definitely possible to place dental implants after teeth have been extracted. Please see an implant specialist for a consultation. They will take a 3D X-ray to check if you have adequate bone to place the implants, whether you need any bone grafting and plan the position of the implants. The cost will be based on the number of implants and the type of crowns you will receive.
Can veneers fix my crooked teeth? Am I a candidate for veneers on those two teeth?
Veneers for crooked teeth
Jan 9, 2018
I believe you can consider veneers to fix your lateral incisors. I recommend doing veneers on the front six teeth at least since this will give a better esthetic result. The teeth will have to be reduced more than they would if you first bring them into the correct position with braces or Invisalign and then do veneers. The dentist can show you a diagnostic wax-up and determine ahead of time how much reduction will be required in order to give you the smile you want.
Cold sensitivity in implant. Is this something to be concerned about?
Cold sensitivity to implant
Jan 9, 2018
Implants do not have any nerve endings and hence there is no sensation with them. I suggest that you have your dentist evaluate the adjacent teeth and even the lower teeth. Sensitivity could be coming from any tooth in that area.
Only have 7 teeth lower front with cavities, need removed. Wear upper dentures, hate it. Would
Implant treatment time
Jan 7, 2018
You will need an appointment for consultation to determine if you have adequate bone to place dental implants for full mouth mouth reconstruction. The dentist will most likely take a 3- dimensional X-ray for diagnostic purposes. Implants take 3-4 months to heal after which the fixed dentures can be made on the implants. If you need additional bone grafting or sinus grafting, it will add 4-5 months to the treatment time. The cost depends on how many implants…
How is the implant done and how long does it take? Also what’s the price range?
Implant treatment time
Jan 7, 2018
If your front upper teeth are non salvageable, then implants will be a good option for you. An implant is a titanium screw that is placed in the upper or lower jaw to take the place of a root of a tooth. It has a healing period of 3-4 months after which the final crowns can be made on the dental implants. I recommend you get a consultation to see what are your your options for your upper front teeth and how many implants do you need, if any.
I stopped wearing my retainer 2-3 years ago
Effect of not wearing retainers after Invisalign treatment
Jan 7, 2018
Since you are unable to locate your previous Invisalign provider, I would recommend that you see a new dentist who provides Invisalign treatment and they should be able to provide you with new retainers. Your records will still be in the system with the company but your dentist will most likely take new impressions for new retainers since you have not worn your retainers for 2-3 years so some change in tooth position would have occurred. Also, if you look…
