Prosthodontics and Planning for Implant Treatment

  • Treatment Overview

    It is well known that teeth can be replaced by implants and their tooth replica attachments.

    Put an implant in, attach a replica tooth. All done. All done?

    What happens though when the replica tooth doesn’t quite look or fit or work as you hoped? Maybe you can’t bite on it? Or it is tooth short, or bulky? Or it comes loose? Or the gum is sore in the area, perhaps swollen and bleeding? Perhaps you keep biting your cheek or lip? Or you keep getting food caught around it? You can’t keep it clean no matter how hard you try?

    Is this just how things are? Not necessarily.

    Understanding from the outset what processes have led to the need for a replacement tooth or teeth, and taking time to assess the overarching consequences of the initial position is the first step in planning.

    We can then make a decision on how detailed the planning and investigations need to be.

    Models of teeth, with accompanying records of the relationship of the upper and lower jaws, can be taken and set up on mechanical devices replicating jaw movements. Photographs are taken. Changes to the bite, teeth, and replica teeth are mocked up on the models, and perhaps in your mouth. Trial teeth can be made. CT scans are analysed. Computerised teeth can be assessed.

    We then use our extensive knowledge and experience of materials, systems, and treatment options, put all the information together and come back with a plan, and a few back up ones too to make sure all our bases are covered.

    This may mean we pass through several provisional and planning stages. We’re happy with that: whatever it takes to get to where we want to with no unpleasant surprises.

    At the end of the day most of us just want teeth that look good, work well, and are easy to look after. At Pond Square we appreciate all the little details that get us there. We enjoy them. That is what makes us who we are, and very good at our jobs.
