Dental Implants

Dental implants commonly known as ‘artificial tooth root’ are used as a fixed and permanent fixed solution for your missing teeth. Dental implants are evolving the way people live. Having them as an replacement option, people are rediscovering the confidence and comfort in their daily activities such as speak, eat, laugh, and enjoy life. These dental implants are designed to provide an integral foundation for teeth replacement which not only in look and feel, but also function like the natural teeth. The person with a tooth loss in no time regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can possess a confident smile with being aware that their teeth appear natural.

An implant can replace can be used to replace a single missing tooth whilst multiple implants are used to support and reinforce a dental bridge of multiple crowns for the replacement of multiple missing teeth.

Are You The Candidate For Dental Implants?

14Whether you are in between a young and middleaged
individual or an older adult; whether you need replacement for one tooth to several teeth, or all your teeth, dental implant can be a solution for all your problems. With certain exception of growing children and early adolescence, dental implants are the ideal solution of choice for people of all ages, even those with certain underlying health conditions.


Can Existing Medical Conditions Contraindicate Dental Implants?

If you can receive routine conventional dental treatments, you can generally have no contraindications with implant placement. However precautions are highly advisable for certain critical conditions even though patients with chronic medical conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes are usually successful candidates for dental implant treatment.

Existing Gum Or Teeth Diseases

Almost all implants placed in patients who have lost their teeth secondary to disease of gums or decay in teeth has been successful.

Implants can replace both removable bridges and dentures, or they can be used to stabilize and secure an existing denture, making it much more comfortable and biologically benefitting.

Success of Dental Implants in Smokers

Although smoking lowers the success rate of implants and thereby its prognosis, it does not entirely rule out the possibility of having them.

Bone Quality

Bone loss is a frequent consequence for people who have lost their teeth or had a history of periodontal disease. Our Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are experienced and trained in grafting the compromised bone in order to safely and permanently secure the implant placed.

You must also know that dental implants are frequently the best treatment option for replacing missing teeth? Rather than letting your removable dentures rest on the gum line, or inadvertently trimming the adjacent teeth and using them as anchors in case of fixed bridges, dental implants are longterm tooth replacements that your oral implantologist places surgically in the jawbone.

Prognosis Of Dental Implant vs. Conventional Dentures

Many patients, who have selected dental implants as a solution to their missing teeth, describe a quality of life that is much more reliable and comfortable than those with fixed bridges or removable dentures.

Dentures often make a person feel and look older than they actually are, thereby causing embarrassment in their daily social affairs when they slip and click, and restrict the much deserving pleasure of eating comfortably.
Many people who are missing a single tooth prefer a fixed bridge as a solution; but a bridge demands the cutting down of healthy, adjacent teeth that may or may not need restoration in the future. Further there is an additional cost of possibly having to replace the bridge multiple times over the course of a lifetime. Similarly, a removable partial denture may have unbalanced forces on the adjacent teeth and underlying bone with and undesirable inevitable result. Studies show that within 57 years there is a failure rate as high as 30% in teeth situated next to a fixed bridge or removable partial denture.

Further, conventional dentures may contribute to the loss of bone quality and quantity in the area of missing teeth.

Implants eliminate or drastically reduce the daytoday frustrations and discomfort secondary to illfitting dentures. They allow freedom to people to enjoy a healthy and unrestricted diet, selfconfidence, speaking clear and fluent without the limitations many denture wearers face.
