The average cost of dental implants now a days is not as expensive as before. Getting a zirconia bridge is a better alternative than an acrylic bridge. In our opinion it will last longer and promote better oral hygiene since it is easier to clean than plastic bridge. Zirconia bridge will be easier to eat hard food like apple or steaks VS acrylic teeth which you can still eat apple and steaks, but the chewing efficiency is not as good. This is because acrylic teeth are softer than zirconia.
This patient found us through dentist near me and he wanted an All on 4 top. This case was very challenging, because the patient is a severe grinder and his bite is collapsed. We offered two options; all on 4 on top or preserve the remaining teeth. He chose the best option possible which is save the remaining teeth and restore the missing teeth with teeth dental implants. A fixed implant bridge was placed. We increased the vertical dimension of occlusion and delivered 5 implants with a permanent zirconia bridge.
Years of drug abuse and lack of oral hygiene can lead up to scenarios such as this one. Cavities around all the teeth make them non-restorable. The option to restore this case with crowns was given, but the patient refused to save his teeth and chose to get dental implants. We delivered same day dental implants on his upper arch all on 6 and just 5 lower implants, since the patient had severe bone loss on his lower left site. A zirconia permanent bridge was delivered after 4 months. If patient gets a professional cleaning every 6 months and good oral hygiene these tooth implants could last for long time.
Affordable cosmetic dentist in Houston can bring excellent results. This patient broke her front tooth chewing an apple and came to Quality Dental. We delivered a tooth implant and a white cap tooth to match the existing white crowns. A temporary cap was made the day of the surgery and 4 months later the final white crown was screwed in. The dentist at quality dental provided her with excellent results.
Tooth caps may get decay without proper oral hygiene and professional maintenance. Patient had recurrent decay round his crowns. We were not able to save her teeth. Full upper all on four was recommended. Despite her bite we were able to place dental implants and place permanent dentures all in one day. Patient had a soft diet for 4 months. She ate things like mash potatoes, omelets, pasta, rice, fish, beans for 4 months. After 4 months she continued with her regular diet. The final teeth crowns were white matching her old tooth caps.
