Dental Implants

Dental Implants

Dental implants provide a stable foundation for prosthetic teeth. They provide a solution for people who have lost their teeth due to various reasons like decay, injury, or disease. The implant is made of titanium, a strong and biocompatible metal. The metal post is placed into the jawbone through surgery, and the bone fuses with the post over time. The implant is then attached to a prosthetic tooth, which gives a natural appearance to the restoration.

What Are the Advantages of Dental Implants?

  • The best thing about dental implants is that they are strong and durable. They are made from biocompatible titanium, which does not cause any harm to the tissues of the jawbone or the surrounding soft tissues.
  • The implant provides support to the jawbone and helps restore its shape. The bone gradually deteriorates when teeth are missing, leading to loss of jawbone mass. With dental implants, this problem can be averted.
  • The prosthetic tooth looks like a natural one. They help restore your smile and prevent you from feeling self-conscious.
  • Implants improve your oral functionality by restoring your biting and chewing abilities.

What Does the Dental Implant Procedure Entail?

Getting dental implants involves two stages: an initial surgery where the implant studs are placed into your jawbone and a second step for placing the abutment and the crown.

During your first visit to our clinic, we will conduct a thorough screening process to check if you are fit to get dental implants. We may also recommend additional tests like X-rays, digital scans, etc., if necessary. Based on these findings, we will design a treatment plan for you.

During your surgery, we will administer local anesthesia and make a small incision into your gums to expose the underlying bone, after which we will insert the implant stud into it using dental adhesives. The wound will be sutured, and the implant will be allowed to heal and bond with the surrounding bone over time. 

After this healing period, which may last for a few months, we will move on to the next step and place an abutment on the implant stud that will support the dental crown. The abutment helps connect the implant with the artificial tooth and keeps it in place so that it doesn’t slip out of position or get displaced when biting and chewing food.
