What are the patients problems when they want to replace teeth with implants? What are the solutions the implantology can offer?(the pictures carried out in the Clinica Cotten, pictures abefore and after the treatment)
PROBLEM CASE 1 : My teeth are completely worn down, I cannot have more crowns as they damage the roots of my teeth too much. I have difficulty eating and do not dare to smile, I am also embarrassed by the appearance of my teeth (photo prior to treatment).
SOLUTION CASE 1 : A fixed bridge in implants and ceramic crowns (photo of completed case)
PROBLEM CASE 2 – I suffer from facial ageing and want to avoid the use of dentures or any type of dental apparatus.
SOLUTION CASE 2 – Fixed prosthesis on implants in the maxilla and in the jaw. Fixed prosthesis 2 days after the insertion of the implants. To follow is a video which shows us how the face ages with the loss of teeth and the use of removable prostheses.
PROBLEM CASE 3 – I have problems with the erosion of my dentures and want to feel comfortable again. Example: old, eroded prostheses, altered dental roots, periodontal problems.
SOLUTION CASE 3: Fixed prosthesis on implants.
PROBLEM CASE 4: I have lost various teeth. Those I still have move a lot and have to be extracted. I don’t want to wait months before getting my fixed prosthesis.
SOLUTION CASE 4: After extracting the teeth from the upper jaw and inserting implants, the transition bridge is attached two days later.
PROBLEM CASE 5: My face has changed since I have been using removable apparatus.
SOLUTION CASE 5: Fixed prosthesis on implants which permits compensation of the loss of height of the lower part of the face.
PROBLEM CASE 6 : Absence of all teeth for some 20 years. Full removable prostheses in the maxilla and the jaw. Problems with removable dentures. The patient “can no longer bear my removable prosthesis, I want a fixed solution".
SOLUTION CASE 6 : Prosthesis on fixed implants in the maxilla and in the jaw two days after the insertion of implants.
PROBLEM CASE 7 – I can no longer support my mobile apparatus because I have lost a lot of bone and gum over the years. Example in the photo: at jaw level, there is insufficient crest for the stability of removable dentures. VIDEO: you can see how the bone has diminished over the years, with the use of removable apparatus (mobile dentures).
SOLUTION CASE 7 – Fixed prosthesis on implants in the jaw.
PROBLEM CASE 8 : I need implants but am told that I do not have sufficient bone base for the insertion of cylindrical implants other than through bone grafting .
SOLUTION CASE 8 – Total implantation in the maxilla and in the jaw with graft-free basal implantology, without displacement of the mandibular nerve and without sinus lift.
PROBLEM CASE 9 : Extreme atrophy, insertion of implants very difficult. “My dentists told me it would be imposible to insert implants".
SOLUTION CASE 9: Fixed prosthesis on implants, screwed in two days after the insertion of the implants in a jaw with severe atrophy.
PROBLEM CASE 10 : Waiting time prior to fixed prosthesis. “The implant solution they offered me was to wait for many months prior to the attachment of the fixed prosthesis".
SOLUTION CASE 10 : Implants were inserted into the upper maxilla, in the same session the teeth were extracted, and the fixed prosthesis was attached two days after the intervention.
If you spend 6 months laid up in bed, or 6 months in a space station without gravity. do you think that the next day you would be able to calmly get up and walk? The answer is no, because your muscles and your bone would have atrophied. In relation to the teeth, the extraction of teeth without being replaced with implants causes bone loss in the medium to long term, as a consequence of the lack of stimulation of the bone. We can see facial changes over the years from wearing removable prostheses. The insertion of implants replacing the teeth permits the maintenance of the bone.
Ectodermal dysplasia or Christ-Siemens-Touraine Syndrome is a genetic disorder with consequences such as the absence of various or all of the teeth in childhood. This leads to the atrophy of the jaw and the maxilla in adulthood. This atrophy is an indication for basal implantology and the insertion of a fixed prosthesis on dental implants, without resorting to bone grafts.
13 – Extreme case resolved with basal implantology: Von Recklinghausen disease (Elephant Man). The second operated case in the world, a face transplant to treat a 27 year old youth suffering from Von Recklinghausen Disease (Elephant Man), requiring full maxillomandibular rehabilitation with dental implants. The total implantation in the maxilla and the jaw was performed using basal implantology.
Also called trisomy 21, this chromosomal disorder has implications for the atrophy of the maxilla and the jaw, which limits the insertion of dental implants. Basal implantology has enabled us to insert implants and a fixed prosthesis within two days without the use of bone grafts. For the first time in his life our patient no longer uses removable prosthesis, and does not fear losing his dentures when speaking or eating. The quality of his everyday life has improved a lot.
