Slide 1: Why a dental implant? Instructions: Use the space bar to advance the slide when you are ready. Slide 2: In this discussion, you’ll learn the reasons that dental implants have become the most appropriate way of replacing a missing tooth. On completion of this short education program, you’ll then be in a better position to make a decision regarding the future of your dental health. Slide 3: Let’s first look at a section of your mouth and teeth to get a better perspective on what has led to your visit today. Slide 4: Let’s first look at the back teeth. Slide 5: The teeth are supported by bone. Slide 6: And the bone is covered with gum tissue. Slide 7: The teeth are constantly subjected to tremendous forces from the large muscles on the side of the face. These forces are then distributed among the teeth. Slide 8: When a tooth is lost… the forces become redistributed over the adjacent teeth. Slide 9: When a tooth is lost… the forces become redistributed over the adjacent teeth. Slide 10: the forces become redistributed over the adjacent teeth. When a tooth is lost… As more teeth are lost, the remaining teeth must absorb more forces. Slide 11: When a tooth is lost… the forces become redistributed over the adjacent teeth. As more teeth are lost, the remaining teeth must absorb more forces. Slide 12: When a tooth is lost… the forces become redistributed over the adjacent teeth. As more teeth are lost, the remaining teeth must absorb more forces. Slide 13: Another way of looking at the problem is to compare it to standing on your toes. Slide 14: Another way of looking at the problem is to compare it to standing on your toes. Slide 15: What would happen to the forces if you were standing on only one foot? Slide 16: What would happen to the forces if you were standing on only one foot? Slide 17: What would happen to the forces if you were standing on only one foot? Slide 18: The remaining foot would take twice the force. Toes would become inflamed. Slide 19: The remaining foot would take twice the force. Toes would become inflamed. Your foot would become STRESSED Slide 20: How is this stress handled by your teeth? Slide 21: How is this stress handled by your teeth? If we have no back teeth, even if a removable partial denture is present, the front teeth have to absorb the chewing forces. Slide 22: If we have no back teeth, even if a removable partial denture is present, the front teeth have to absorb the chewing forces. Slide 23: If we have no back teeth, even if a removable partial denture is present, the front teeth have to absorb the chewing forces. Slide 24: If we have no back teeth, even if a removable partial denture is present, the front teeth have to absorb the chewing forces. Slide 25: If we have no back teeth, even if a removable partial denture is present, the front teeth have to absorb the chewing forces. Slide 26: If we have no back teeth, even if a removable partial denture is present, the front teeth have to absorb the chewing forces. Slide 36: Besides the added stress caused by the muscular forces, the clasped teeth in a partial denture receive additional stress. Slide 37: wear Wear may also occur. Slide 38: The stress on the front teeth is so great that they will loosen, shift, or wear. Slide 39: The stress on the front teeth is so great that they will loosen, shift, or wear. Slide 40: The stress on the front teeth is so great that they will loosen, shift, or wear. Slide 41: The stress on the front teeth is so great that they will loosen, shift, or wear. Slide 42: The stress on the front teeth is so great that they will loosen, shift, or wear. Slide 43: The stress on the front teeth is so great that they will loosen, shift, or wear. Slide 44: The stress on the front teeth is so great that they will loosen, shift, or wear. Slide 45: The stress on the front teeth is so great that they will loosen, shift, or wear. Slide 46: The stress on the front teeth is so great that they will loosen, shift, or wear. Slide 47: The stress on the front teeth is so great that they will loosen, shift, or wear. Slide 54: Upper teeth erupt into the empty space, Slide 55: Upper teeth erupt into the empty space, Slide 56: Upper teeth erupt into the empty space, Slide 57: leaving no room for the opposing teeth. Slide 58: One way of handling the problem of one or more missing teeth is by doing a fixed bridge. Slide 59: In a fixed bridge solution, the adjacent teeth are ground down. Slide 60: The replacement is a solid piece which is cemented to the teeth called a fixed bridge. The forces on the teeth holding the bridge are still borne by those teeth. Slide 61: The forces on the teeth holding the bridge are still borne by those teeth. Slide 62: The forces on the teeth holding the bridge are still borne by those teeth. Slide 63: The forces on the teeth holding the bridge are still borne by those teeth. Slide 64: The forces on the teeth holding the bridge are still borne by those teeth. Slide 65: Let’s look at a close up view of what happens. Slide 66: Forces directed to the bridge tend to dislodge the bridge over time. Slide 67: Forces directed to the bridge tend to dislodge the bridge over time. Slide 68: Forces directed to the bridge tend to dislodge the bridge over time. Opening the opportunity for cavities to form under the bridge. Slide 69: A dental implant will absorb the forces and take the excess stress off of the adjacent teeth. Slide 71: Your bone absorbs the forces, very much like a natural tooth. Slide 73: Let’s see how dental implants can help replace several missing teeth. Slide 74: Let’s see how dental implants can help replace several missing teeth. Slide 75: Let’s see how dental implants can help replace several missing teeth. Slide 76: Now the forces can be equally distributed, saving damage to the natural teeth. Slide 77: Now the forces can be equally distributed, saving damage to the natural teeth. Slide 78: Compare that to a partial denture. Slide 79: Compare that to a partial denture. Slide 80: Compare that to a partial denture. Slide 81: Compare that to a partial denture. Slide 82: Compare that to a partial denture. Slide 83: Compare that to a partial denture. Slide 84: Compare that to a partial denture. Slide 85: Compare that to a partial denture. Slide 86: Compare that to a partial denture. Slide 87: Or to a fixed bridge. Slide 88: Our goal is to help you determine the most effective way to preserve your teeth and support your ability to chew. Please ask your dental assistant any questions that you might have.
