Dental Implants:

Dr. Raju has had extensive hands-on training with both single and multiple implant dentistry from the Sclar Center (www.sclarcenter.com), as well as, Diplomat Certification on Prosthodontics and Implantology, courtesy of Carl E. Misch courses. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carl_E._Misch).

At Tender Dental Care the following types of implants are offered:

  • Single
  • Multiple (All-on-4 Implant Supported Dentures)

Single Implant

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.

Multiple Implants (All On 4)

  • Modern treatment methods with reduced number of implants and tilted implant placement allow a less invasive treatment approach with only one surgical intervention, and without augmentive surgery
  • The indication for treatment with the All-on- 4® treatment concept depends on the anatomical aspects of soft and hard tissue
  • Sufficiently high primary stability supported by adequate implant design and surface is a basic requirement for the immediate restoration and immediate loading

Edentulous patients - Psychosocial considerations. Patients wearing complete dentures often suffer from esthetic and functional discomfort and compromised denture retention and chewing function. Denture adhesives are often applied. Many patients perceive this as a strong psychological and social burden. Modern implant-supported restoration protocols can provide these patients with a good functional and esthetic treatment result.

Rehabilitation of edentulous patients with implant supported fixed restorations enhances personal well-being, self-esteem and quality of life. Restoration protocol of edentulous arches with one surgery. Patients suffering from severe atrophy of the maxilla and/or mandible, traditionally undergo pre-implant augmentation procedures implying multiple surgeries and long treatment times with intermittent periods of edentulism. Treatment protocols with a reduced number of implants and tilted implant placement following the anatomical conditions allow rehabilitation in only one surgical intervention. Reflecting state-of- the-art advancements in implant technology and surgical and prosthetic possibilities, the All-on- 4® treatment concept provides a fast and safe solution for the edentulous patient.

Before treatment decision a functional, radiological, psychological and esthetic assessment must be performed to evaluate if the individual patient situation qualifies for the All-on- 4® treatment concept.*
