Dental Implants

Dental implants provide a reliable solution for tooth replacement, regardless of the number of teeth lost, resulting in a natural-looking and functional outcome.

A dental implant is an artificial root upon which a manufactured tooth can be placed. Depending on the individual’s requirements and condition, Implants are used to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or larger prostheses such as dentures. Placement of the implant stabilizes bone levels and may prevent bone loss, resulting in greater long-term support, function, and esthetics. Implants are a superior way to replace missing teeth, as they do not require alteration of adjacent teeth. They are also an excellent way to stabilize a denture.

Dental implants are placed in the same bone that once supported teeth and produce a life-like result that may leave you completely unaware that they are not natural teeth. Many patients find the procedure of implant placement easier than anticipated.

  • What are the benefits of dental implants?

    Tooth loss can cause difficulties, such as chewing and speaking clearly. Left untreated, it can lead to severe issues, including tooth shifts, jawbone deterioration, facial structure loss, and bite imbalances. These problems usually occur over time when there is no root system to maintain bone health and alignment. Dental implants act as an artificial root system, which not only helps patients overcome short-term challenges and preventing long-term problems associated with tooth loss. They are the most effective method for treating tooth loss since they support prosthetic teeth and allow replacement teeth to feel more natural.

  • What types of dental implants exist?

    Two commonly used types of dental implants are available: endosteal implants and all-on-4 implants. Endosteal implants are the most frequently used option, consisting of a titanium metal rod surgically implanted into the jawbone and a supporting post designed to secure either a dental crown or a dental bridge. On the other hand, all-on-4 implants are a revolutionary dental implant system that supports an entire top or bottom denture on just four implants. Each implant is strategically placed to ensure the replacement teeth remain stable and secure. The advantage of using four implants is that it promotes faster patient recovery and minimizes the risk of complications from possible implant failure.

  • What is the procedure for dental implants? Are dental implants safe?

    The first step towards getting a dental implant is to have a consultation with a dentist, who will visually examine the area in your mouth where the implant is being considered. The oral surgeon will then determine if any teeth need to be extracted and which type of bone graft needs to be conducted. These procedures will take place first, and the patient will be given a few months to heal to ensure that an adequate and robust bone is present at the implant site.

    Once it is determined that the bone has healed, the dental implant is placed into the bone, and a healing cap is placed over the implant to begin the healing phase. Regular check-ups are then done to ensure proper healing and to check for any infection around the surgical site.
