Dental implants are an incredible advancement in tooth replacement. An implant is essentially a titanium post which is placed into the jawbone where a tooth is missing. After a replacement tooth caps the post, the structure looks and functions just like a normal tooth.
Dr. Chin’s thirty years of experience and results help patients achieve long-term success with dental implants. He knows that overload is a primary cause of implant failure, so Dr. Chin has trained extensively in the latest techniques and technologies to avoid overload issues.
One-visit Next-Generation implants are the next step in implant technology. Next-generation implants are an excellent solution for anchoring not only crowns, but also bridges and dentures. This makes them especially useful for quickly and easily replacing multiple teeth.
Next-Generation Implants offer the same benefits as implants but they offer these advantages:
|Traditional Implants||Next Generation Implants|
|Cost||More Expensive||Less Expensive|
|Treatment Time||Several visits over 8-18 months (depending on need for bone augmentation procedures.)||Treatment is often completed in just one visit.|
|Surgery||Invasive surgery; more traumatic potential; requires incisions and stitches||Much less invasive surgery; less traumatic potential; usually requires no incisions, and no stitches|
|Hole Diameter||Big hole; relatively large screw needs a substantial hole in the jaw bone||Smaller implant means smaller hole in the bone|
|Recovery Time||Substantial recovery time||Quick recovery time|
|Reliability and Durability||Excellent||Excellent|
|Bone Grafting Surgery||Sometimes necessary||Not necessary|
|Medications||Surgery requires patients to stop using blood thinners||Procedure does not require change in medications|
