Dental Implant

Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good oral health & who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason. A dental implant is like a simulated tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a surrogate tooth or bridge.

Dental implant will restore your tooth root if the bone is better preserved. Dental implants assimilate with your jawbone, helping to keep the bone healthy and together. A dental implant provides several advantages over other tooth replacement option. In the long term, a single implant can be more aesthetic and easier to keep clean than a bridge. To get an implant fixed we need to ensure that the jaw bone is in good shape and oral tissues are healthy.

The key benefit of dental implants over other tooth replacement systems is that an implant connects directly to the jaw bone. It's obviously not the same as the original connection, but functions just the same. When a tooth is lost, bone loss will eventually occur in that region because the root is no longer stimulating and stabilizing the bone. By using titanium--which biochemically joins to bone in order to replace the root, you get a bond that more precisely replicates the one found in nature. Single-tooth implants can be used in people who are missing one or more teeth. An implant is surgically placed in an opening that is made by your dentist in the jawbone.

There are two basic types of implants available at our dental clinic. In certain cases, conventional or immediate implants may be followed by immediate loading of crowns and bridges known as immediate loaded implants. The type of dental implants selected will depend on the patients' specific needs and general dental condition. A panoramic x-ray and/or CT scan are usually required to assess the amount of bone, decide the space available.
