Dental Implants

Do you have a missing tooth?

Don’t worry you won’t have to sacrifice your healthy neighboring teeth to replace it.

Dental implants are the best options for a permanent replacement for missing teeth. Dental implant is actually a replacement for the root or roots of a tooth. Like tooth roots, dental implants are secured in the jawbone and are not visible once surgically placed. It secures artificial teeth with a more natural look. The procedure consists of a surgical phase and prosthetic phase. In Surgical phase we place dental implant in place of future tooth. Following a period of time, once it is completely integrated with the jaw bone, an abutment is fixed to the implant then a bridge crown or denture is fitted on top of the abutment which replaces any single tooth or multiple teeth.

The practice of implant dentistry requires expertise in planning, surgery and tooth restoration; it is as much about art and experience as it is about science. And our In-house Dentist performs them with great ease, because of his dedication and experience in delivering the best.

When are Dental Implants recommended?

Dental implants are placed in manner with the way natural tooth is supported. They fit the patients’ realistic expectations. When teeth are lost, supporting bone structure can gradually recede. An implant is placed in the empty space to reduce the speed of bone resorption, maintaining the size and shape durability of Jaw bones.

 Benefits:

  • Improved esthetics and function
  • Reduced bone resorption
  • Improved denture retention
  • Preserves natural tooth structure

An additional benefit apart from to preserve natural tooth structure, dental implants help to connect multiple teeth. A tooth implant is more advantageous compared to bridge because it replaces the tooth without compromising the health of any adjacent teeth.

Dental Implants and Dentures

For complete denture wearers, maintenance is a major issue as bone support decreases with age. Ultimately the most excellent fitting dentures tend to feel loose too. Complete upper dentures involve a wide surface over the palate for suction which hampers the taste of food. On the other hand, Implant supported dentures are securely fixed in and do not need the palate to be covered.

Removable or full partial dentures are difficult to retain at times. Dental implants provide an alternative way of securing them. A group of implants with special bars and screws assembly can be used to stabilize a denture. So, you can have Fixed Complete Dentures.
