DENTAL IMPLANTS

Dental implants are replacements for lost teeth. If one or more of your teeth are missing there are a few options to replace them:

  •  Dental Implants
  •  Bridges
  •  Partial or Complete Dentures

Dental Implants look like natural teeth.

What are dental implants?

A dental implant is an artificial root usually made of titanium metal. It is placed inside the jawbone and bonds to the bone. They provide a foundation for replacement teeth.

Who can get Dental Implants?

Most people can have dental implants. Some may need additional procedures such as tissue or bone grafts to prepare a bed for placing implants.

Consult your dentist to find out if dental implants can replace your missing teeth.

How Dental Implants are placed?

  •  Your dentist will examine your jaw, take x-rays and may recommend a scan ( a three          dimension x-ray) of your jawbone.
  •  After reviewing your dental records, your dentist will select the size of the implant/s.
  •  During the first stage of surgery dental implant/s are placed inside jawbone, beneath the gum    tissue. The gum tissue will be stitched back into place.
  •   Implant/s will bond to the bone in a few months.
  •   When the implant is stable, your dentist will take impressions of the implant site and the opposing teeth or jaw.
  •  A dental laboratory will make an abutment (a post) that connects the replacement tooth to the implant.
  •  Your dentist will attach the post and the replacement tooth to the implant with an screw which is hidden inside the replacement tooth.
  •  In some cases, the replacement tooth/ teeth are placed at the time of the surgery.
