IMPLANT DENTISTRY

  About Implants

When teeth are missing, the gaps may be corrected by bridges or dental implants. Implants are primarily alternative roots which support the teeth above them. They are placed into the vacant bone without using the adjacent teeth for support. Sound and sufficient bone is necessary for their placement. Once restored, implants are known to support teeth for decades.

Their alternative is either damaging neighboring teeth for support of a bridge or living with a removable denture. The latter will need to be removed and cleaned after meals + removed prior to sleep. Dental Implants therefore restore you to your forever comfortable self. Maintaining them means that you brush and floss just like any other tooth in your mouth. they grant you the ability to chew, eat, smile and talk confidently.

  Socket Preservation

Socket preservation attempts to prevent bone loss by bone grafting the socket immediately after extraction. With the procedure, the gum is retracted, the tooth is removed, material (usually a bone substitute) is placed in the tooth socket, it is covered with a barrier membrane, and sutured closed.

  Bone Graft

When your jaw bone has receded or lost its shape, we can often replace it and help new bone to grow. Depending where in the mouth bone loss has receded we often select the appropriate procedure.

Augmentation Procedure

  • Sinus grafts

  • Bone grafts

  • Ridge preservations 

  

Sinus graft

  This procedure thicken the wall of bone that form the upper jaw bone and the floor of the sinus. it is this messing bone that holds in place the upper back teeth.

Bone graft

  This procedure replaces the height and weight of  the jaw where bone tissues have receded.

Ridge preservations

   Fill in the empty socket of

Osseodensification

  Cone Beam CT Scan

When clinical and conventional radiography cannot provide us with enough information we use a Cone Beam CT Scan and iTero scan.

We can now :

- Assess the quantity and quality of the jawbone.
- Determine where the relevant nerves/anatomical structures are located.
- Measure the density of the jawbone where the implant will be placed.
- Plan the complete surgical procedure in advance, from start to finish.
- Precisely decide on the appropriate size and type of implants.

  PRGF Plasma Rich in Growth Factors

- Platelet rich plasma and fibrin 

-Made from a sample of your own blood gently  drawn in our clinic at the time of surgery, enhances the bone growth and speeds the healing.

Dr Haimovici has spend many hours traveling with world innovators of these procedures bringing their advancement to our clinic .

Is considered a breakthrough in bone and soft tissue regeneration because it permits the body to take advantage of the normal healing pathways at a greatly accelerated rate. When the body is wounded and needs to heal, many different cells and cell-types are rushed to the site of the injury. These cells initiate the healing process by forming blood clots and releasing growth factors into the wound.  The more growth factors that are introduced to the wound, the quicker and more efficiently the body can heal.

By introducing PRGF to the surgical area, the body can take advantage of a large amount of growth factors without the blood cells.

This allows for accelerated healing but without the immune system response of swelling and inflammation. PRGF also has been shown to increase the formation of new bone. By adding PRGF to the surgical site, the doctor can now grow bone more predictably and faster than ever before. This is of great significance when placing dental implants.
