Dental Implants, the most significant innovation of today’s generation!
What is a dental Implant?
A dental implant is a titanium “root” that is placed into the jaw bone to support a crown to form an artificial tooth. Titanium is a biocompatible material and does not cause allergic reactions. The implant is usually inserted into the jaw bone under a local anesthetic, and the bone grows onto the implant and integrates with the surface.
Implant supported teeth look, feel and function like natural teeth.
When the natural roots of teeth are lost, bone resorption in the jaws may occur. These problems can be avoided by inserting dental implants.
When can dental implants be used?
It does not matter whether teeth were lost through accident, disease or caries, dental implants are an excellent tooth replacement for many patients.
Your dentist will inform you which implant treatment is most suitable for you.
Dental implants can be used when:
- a single tooth is missing – crown
- several teeth are missing – bridges
- all teeth are missing – overdentures
How does it work?
After a detailed consultation and examinations, a cost projection will be prepared by your dentist, Only when you are comfortable with what will happen, your surgery will be scheduled and the implant(s) will be inserted.
When your dentist is satisfied with the stability of your implant, the final restoration can take place.
Usually, four to six visits are required over two to six months. Your dentist will advice you and set up your individual schedule.
