RESTORE THOSE MISSING TEETH WITH
A Dental implant is an advanced therapy that is used to replace a single, multiple or all teeth. Implant screw or post is embedded within the jawbone and replaces natural teeth by supporting cemented crowns or removable or fixed denture. After placing the dental implants, bone forms around the implant, which serves to support the artificial teeth. With replacement teeth, you can chew on food, brush, and drink just as with normal teeth.
Why Dental Implants Are Worth the Cost
Whether mini or full, dental implants offer the following life-changing benefits:
- Restored facial appearance and aesthetics
- Restored ability to chew food and speak clearly
- Restored natural appearance and normal teeth functioning
- They protect the jawbone from wearing out in the ageing process
- Restored confidence
- Dental Implants Treatment Options
A dental implant can be used as a replacement for a missing tooth. The following are common options for dental implant treatment:
Single tooth replacement:
For a single tooth replacement, a dental implant is inserted into the bone to substitute its root, and a crown on the top to simulate an actual tooth. The procedure is not only cost-effective but has the highest success rate over other options. The implant never decays and feels like the original tooth.
- Full chewing ability
- Attractive smile
- Preserve healthy teeth and jawbone
Fixed-Bridge on Implants
If a number of teeth are missing, multiple implants can be used to replace several teeth or a quadrant. The implants are spread across the teeth followed by the attachment of a fixed bridge spanning the teeth. Typically, 4 to 8 implants are needed to replace an entire jaw.
- Functions like normal teeth
- Long lasting
- Does not affect adjacent teeth
Support for dentures
Dental implants can act as support for both fixed and removable dentures. This mechanism is used for people who have lost all or a majority of their teeth. Dental implants support dentures and make them effective in the mouth. As a result, the patients are able to restore their lost teeth, consequently revamping their smiles and confidence.
- Budget friendly
- Easy to maintain and repair
- Very hygienic and ideal for those with limited dexterity
- Cemented for ultimate patient confidence
- Low tooth wear, long lasting
- Highly esthetic
Care and Maintenance of Dental Implants
Floss and brush your teeth regularly: Bad oral hygiene and lack of regular professional cleaning can attract bacterial infection.
People who have the habit of grinding or clenching their teeth should wear a night mouth guard while sleeping. This will protect the dental implants from overloading.
Ensure you wear a sufficient number of dental implants to avoid exerting an excessive biting force on dental implants.
