Dr. Ameli could help the patient to regain their confidence and feel renewed. Having fixed prosthesis anchoring to her dental implants, and not be embarrassed due to wearing dentures.
What precautions should I take for implant treatment?
Implant Dentistry should not be used in patients who have inadequate amounts of bone. This is to let placement of implants in sufficient size and numbers to support their biomechanical loads.
Mechanical failures, including fatigue fracture of implants, prosthetic screws, and/or abutment screws, may occur. This happens if dental implants are to small in size or number to support their biomechanical loads. This may also happen if the implants are not properly positioned.
To reduce the risk of overload or fatigue failure, your board-certified specialist will place the implants. They will design prosthetics to accommodate the physical or medical conditions of the patients. Such as bruxism (i.e., grinding or clenching of teeth) or poor jaw relationships.
