Dental Implants

What are Dental Implants

Dental Implants

Dental implant treatment involves embedding an artificial tooth root in the area where a tooth has been lost and covering it with a ceramic artificial tooth. It is a method that compensates for the original functions of a tooth.

Compared to bridge treatments and denture treatments, implant treatments offer many advantages, such as not putting strain on other teeth, having superior aesthetics, and allowing the sensation of the texture and temperature of food.

Advantages of Implant Treatment

For example, in bridge treatments, the surrounding teeth are used as support by putting strain on them. This can lead to risks such as the supporting teeth becoming loose or falling out, or causing cavities.

On the other hand, implant treatments do not require trimming or putting strain on other teeth. They also offer the benefits of a beautiful appearance indistinguishable from natural teeth and the ability to enjoy food just as if using one’s natural teeth.

This treatment is popular among people who do not want to put strain on their remaining teeth, who want to enjoy their meals deliciously for as long as possible, and who do not want to appear older because of dentures.

Dental Implant Case Example

Dental Implant Case Example

A patient visited our clinic to replace a missing top lateral tooth(upper lateral incisor) with a natural-looking one. Since the patient didn’t want to alter her healthy adjacent teeth, we decided on a dental implant treatment rather than a bridge treatment.

In our clinic, we use all-ceramic material with high-transparency for the implant crowns. By combining ceramic crowns with high quality abutments, we can ensure a natural transparency and brightness for your teeth. Furthermore, the use of zirconia helps prevent discoloration of the gums after treatment.

Ultimately, an all-ceramic crown is set on the abutment. The color and sheen are very natural, making it almost indistinguishable from the surrounding teeth.

The Features of Our Dental Implants

Emphasizing preoperative examinations for safe and secure implant surgery

To perform implant surgery safely and securely and to ensure the long-term use of the implant, it is crucial to conduct accurate and thorough pre-operative examinations.

We carry out surgeries after comprehensively confirming the volume of bone and the positions of nerves and vessels using CT scans, photographs, and panoramic images.

CT scanners

CT scanners

Our clinic is equipped with a CT scanner, allowing us to three-dimensionally confirm the thickness of bone and the positions of blood vessels and nerves through CT imaging.

Implant surgery based on CT simulation involves pre-operative practice on a computer before the actual procedure.

By embedding the implant in a position matched with dental impressions and CT simulations, we can accurately embed the implant in the ideal location.

This allows us to embed the implant safely and securely.

We use implants from Straumann, which is a world leading brand in aesthetic dentistry

Using intravenous sedation for a "fearless and painless" experience

Using intravenous sedation for a "fearless and painless" experience

Hearing about surgical procedures might evoke feelings of fear or pain for many. Especially for patients coming from abroad, the fear and anxiety can be increased due to undergoing treatment in a foreign country.

To minimize the pain and the fear for our patients, our clinic uses intravenous sedation during implant surgeries.

With intravenous sedation, patients are administered a medication similar to sleeping pills through an IV, making them drowsy, as if they are sleeping. This method also has a relaxing effect, alleviating the patient’s anxiety and tension.

Though the surgery lasts about 1-2 hours, many patients describe the experience as feeling like they’ve only slept for about 15 minutes, waking up to find the surgery already completed.

We are committed to providing implant treatments that are free from pain and fear, so patients with strong fears or anxieties can feel reassured.

This approach allows you to undergo implant surgery with minimal stress.

Commitment to bone augmentation regenerative therapy

Don’t give up your hope even if your implant treatment has been refused by other dental clinics due to having a thin jawbone.

Our clinic is dedicated to regenerative therapy that encourages the regeneration of the jawbone. This therapy involves a combination of treatments such as fillers, serums, and Emdogain to prepare for the implant insertion.

Depending on the condition of the bone, regenerative therapy might take about a year. We will work together with those coming from abroad to arrange a treatment plan that meets their  schedule in Japan.

You can continue living your life as usual even during the treatment period.

By regenerating bone through the treatment, it becomes possible to receive implants.

Commitment to aesthetic beauty

We pay close attention to the color and translucency of the ceramic crowns, the natural emergence of the gums, and the size and shape of the teeth. We aim to create a beautiful smile that matches the patient’s facial features and balances with the surrounding teeth.
