If you have any missing teeth, dental implants can resolve these problems and leave you with permanent fixed teeth.
Our Process that we take for our dental implants is outlined below.
For many people, a missing tooth or teeth can be a confidence shattering experience. The permanent need to hide one’s smile can cause embarrassment in social situations, and missing teeth can make one look older.
For loss of one or more teeth, tissue-friendly replacement roots are increasingly being implanted nowadays. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots. They usually have a screw-like or cylindrical design. They are implanted in the jaw bone to replace the lost teeth. A dental implant performs the same function as a person’s own tooth roots because it fuses directly with the surrounding bone.
Today nearly all implants are made of high-purity titanium because it is very well tolerated by human tissues and forms a secure bond with bone. This material has proven valuable in medicine for decades, such as knee and hip replacements. Titanium is not known to cause any allergies or intolerance reactions. The size and shape of an implant is determined by the individual conditions in the jaw of the patient receiving treatment.
There is no general age restriction to dental implantation. A minimum bone height in the jaw is required for dental implantation. As a result of bone augmentation developments, it has now become possible to rebuild an adequate bony foundation in most cases where this bone supply is not already available. This is done by grafting the patient’s own bone or by the use of bone augmentation materials.
There are many benefits to dental implants. For the right candidate, the success rate is extremely high. Since the implants are fitted straight into the jaw, there is no continued bone loss as seen with bridgework or dentures. Dental implants also do not require work to be done to adjacent teeth, unlike bridgework. With dental implants, no one will ever know you have a replacement tooth or teeth
