Dental Implants

Dental implants are a modern and effective solution for replacing missing teeth. They are designed to mimic the function and appearance of natural teeth, providing a long-lasting and durable alternative to traditional dentures or bridges.

What are the advantages of Dental Implants :

 

First Appointment: Initial Consultation and examination

During this appointment, your oral health will be evaluated, and any necessary X-rays or scans will be taken to Planning assess the condition of your jawbone and determine if you are a suitable candidate for dental implants. Based on the examination and assessment, a customized treatment plan will be developed to address your specific needs. This plan will include details such as the number of implants required, the placement locations, and the type of restoration (such as crowns, bridges, or dentures) that will be attached to the implants.

Implant placement

The implant placement is a surgical procedure that is typically performed under local anesthesia. The specialist will make an incision in the gum tissue to expose the underlying jawbone. Then, using specialized drills, the dentist will create a small hole in the bone and carefully place the titanium implant into the designated position. The gum tissue is then sutured back in place, and a protective cap may be placed over the implant. After the implant is placed, a healing period of 10-12 weeks is necessary for osseointegration to occur. During this time, the jawbone fuses with the implant, providing a stable and secure foundation for the artificial tooth. It’s important to follow proper oral hygiene practices and adhere to any post-operative instructions provided by your dentist during this healing period.

Abutment Placement

After 3 months, once osseointegration is complete, an abutment is placed over the implant. The abutment acts as a connector between the implant and the final restoration following which impressions will be taken to create a custom-made dental crown, bridge, or denture. This final restoration will be carefully crafted to match the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth, ensuring a seamless and natural-looking result. The restoration is then securely attached to the abutment, completing the dental implant procedure.

All On Four Prosthesis

The All-on-4 prosthesis concept involves the strategic placement of four dental implants in the jawbone to support a fixed prosthesis. These four implants are positioned at angles to maximize contact with available bone, providing stability and support for the full-arch restoration.

The All-on-4 prosthesis offers several advantages. It provides a permanent solution for complete tooth loss, restoring the ability to eat, speak, and smile with confidence. The fixed nature of the prosthesis eliminates the need for removable dentures and provides a more stable and comfortable restoration. Additionally, the All-on-4 technique often reduces the need for bone grafting procedures, making it a suitable option for individuals with reduced jawbone volume.
