About Dental Implants:
Why is it Important to replace missing teeth in time?
When a tooth is extracted, a lot of changes in that area can happen. The bone in that region constricts over time. Also, your natural teeth close to that missing tooth will now try to move into this space, sometimes even altering the way your jaws and teeth close together and resulting in gum disease. Thus the area of the missing tooth will over time not be suitable for replacement with Dental Implants.
Missing teeth can easily be replaced with dental implants?
Dental Implant – a small post, usually made of titanium that serves as an alternate for the tooth root Abutment – A connector, placed on, or built into, the top of the dental implant, to connect the implant to the replacement tooth
Crown – A replacement tooth which fits on the top of the implant and abutment
About the procedure -: A dental implant goes into the bone, just like the root of a tooth, and prevents the bone from shrinking and other teeth from shifting. Getting a dental implant placed is a minor procedure, and most patients have very little discomfort afterward. After the implant is placed and the area has healed, abutment and crown is placed on the implant to finish the process.
Duration of the Treatment
Every patient is different, and every site is different, but the average case takes 2-3 months from start to finish. Although it may feel like a lengthy process, dental implants are a great way to replace a missing tooth… or multiple teeth!
Implants are the closest you can get to healthy, natural teeth. They allow you to confidently eat, smile, laugh, talk, play and enjoy all of your regular activities of everyday life without worrying about your teeth.
Advantages of a dental implant
- Reestablishes function and esthetics of missing teeth
- Prevents bone loss due to continuous use of the missing tooth space
- Existing teeth are preserved as teeth movement is prevented
- Biocompatible with the body
There are three different types of artificial tooth replacement:
- Same Day Implant
- Single Or Multiple Implants
- Full Mouth Implants (Complete Upper & Lower Jaw)
Same Day Implants
If your profession demands and you need the missing tooth replaced immediately, Same Day Implants is the answer to your need. At our Hospital, depending on the assessment of the type of case, we can place an implant along with tooth to restore aesthetics. This allows you the freedom to take on your professional commitments without any delay or break. Subsequently, a permanent tooth is placed after sound support around the implant is established.
Single or Multiple Implants
If you have lost one or more teeth due to decay or injury, you can replace them with single or multiple implant solutions.
Full Mouth Implants (Complete Upper & Lower Jaw)
If you have lost all teeth or have trouble with partial or full dentures, the new treatment modality with “All-on-4” places dentures/crowns securely on top of dental implants. It will change your life as it allows you to eat what you want, with no worries about the denture falling out.
