All On Four Dental Implants
Are dental implants the way to go if you need several teeth replaced? I am going to need three molars on the top and four other bottom teeth replaced. Are dental implants the best way to do this?
Six molars are gone, 2 at the top, four at the bottom only 25 years old. Are dental implants a good idea?
Absolutely!!!: If bone quantity/quality are sufficient, go with the implants. Be sure to get a CT scan to make sure no vital structures (nerves, blood vessels, and sinuses) are encroached upon. The other option is a partial denture. Yes dentures are cheaper, but at 43 years of age, you're way too young for dentures. If a bridge is an option you'll eventually loose the abutment teeth as well from recurrent decay. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

If not then you have to consider bone grafting to rebuild the bone prior to dental implant placement. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Dental implants took 4 months (no graft needed) to osseointegrate and I will have to wait 2.5 extra months for the implant crown. Is this unusual?
Implant timeframe: It depends upon whether they are upper or lower dental implants, the number of implants involved, the type of bone, the size, location and type of implants and most importantly the complexity of the case. Restoring two individual implants is quite different that a full reconstruction. We need more details. Most importantly you want quality and not speed. Discuss this with your own dentist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
