Dental Implants, what is this?
Are you missing a tooth or multiple teeth? You are not happy with a removable denture due to its inconvenience? Dental Implants are a revolutionary treatment that can be used when replacing damaged or missing teeth so naturally. With Implant, you can smile, speak and eat again with comfort and confidence. No more hiding your smile.
The Implant procedure: the procedure to fit a dental implant is usually the same whether one or all teeth are missing.
First, Implant (also called replaced root, made by titanium) takes the place of the missing tooth. The Implant acts just like a natural tooth root. Usually, the healing process takes 1-6 months to firmly implant as a part of the lower jaw.
Then, abutment is attached to the implant. It is supported for new PFM crown.
Finally, PFM crown is placed on the abutment
Dental Implant offers the following advantages:
- They are accepted by dental professionals for over 40 years, as a successful and trusted method of tooth replacement used today.
- They have been made of biocompatible materials (titanium). As a result, they are accepted by your body.
- Your implant can actually last a lifetime with proper care and good oral hygiene.
Unlike conventional bridges, Implant allows one or more teeth to be replaced without affecting neighboring teeth, even there is no need to grind down adjacent natural teeth.
- Maintain natural bone, and minimize further bone loss due to bone stimulation – one of the most significant advantages.
While dentures can cause bone loss, due to lack of stimulation, the Implant almost completely overcome this
Follow Up Care
