What are the new dental implant techniques, and what do they do?
At 32 Pearls, these sought-after treatments, exclusive to certified Seattle dentists like Dr. Bilikas and his team, are readily available.
All On 4: The All on 4 technique is revolutionary for full-arch dental implants. It involves the placement of four dental implants in the jawbone, which serve as anchors for a prosthetic arch (denture) that replaces an entire arch of teeth. This procedure offers a fixed and stable solution, eliminating the need for traditional removable dentures.
All On X: The All on X technique extends the All on 4 concept. It refers to a similar procedure but allows more than four dental implants in the jawbone to support a full arch restoration. The X in All on X denotes the variable number of implants used, depending on the specific needs and condition of the patient.
Palatal Approach technique: The Palatal Approach technique is a surgical approach used to place dental implants in the upper jaw. It involves accessing the palatal (roof of the mouth) region to insert implants, providing stability and support to the prosthetic restoration.
Trans-Sinus Implants: Trans-Sinus Implants are designed for cases where the height or thickness of the jawbone is limited due to bone resorption or the presence of the sinus cavity. This technique involves placing implants that penetrate the sinus floor to maximize bone anchorage, allowing for successful implant placement even in compromised situations.
Trans-Nasal Implants: Trans-Nasal Implants are an innovative method to provide implant support in the upper jaw when traditional approaches are not feasible, such as in cases with severe bone loss or insufficient bone volume. This technique involves the placement of implants through the nasal cavity to secure the dental restoration.
Vomer Implants: Vomer Implants are designed for situations with extensive bone loss in the posterior maxillary region. They provide additional stability and support by anchoring implants to the vomer bone, which lies in the midline of the nasal cavity.
Pterygoid Implants: Pterygoid Implants are used when there is a lack of posterior bone support in the upper jaw. These implants are anchored in the pterygoid process, a bony structure in the skull, providing stability and allowing for the successful placement of full arch restorations.
New Custom Implants (Subperiosteal): Subperiosteal implants are custom-made implants that rest on top of the jawbone but are placed beneath the gum tissue. These implants are designed specifically for patients with severe jawbone atrophy or when traditional implant placements are impossible. Custom subperiosteal implants offer a unique and accurate fit, providing a stable foundation for full mouth restorations.
