A Complete Smile is an Essential Part of Your Self Esteem

Your dentist can determine your exact needs during your consultation, and recommend dental implants that work for you to give you a happy, healthy smile, free of missing teeth.

Could implants help you?

A permanent replacement for missing teeth that mimics the look of your natural teeth is the end goal of dental implants. However, the effects are not solely aesthetic. Dental implants can also address a variety of problems with oral health and your natural teeth.

Preventing the repositioning of nearby teeth, lessening jaw joint pain and biting problems, as well as improving digestion, speaking and chewing.

Are you a good candidate?

It's important to understand the specifics of the procedure before you can decide whether or not dental implants are right for you.

Effective treatment relies heavily on existing bone tissue in your jaw, and thus special consideration must be taken in cases where the jaw bone is too thin or too weak to support proper dental implants. However, our qualified dental professionals can get you started with a consultation.

What to Expect With a Dental Implant Procedure

The titanium root is inserted into the jaw bone during the first stage utilising extremely accurate surgical methods. The implant is subsequently covered with gum tissue to allow for healing.

The implant will fuse with your jaw's bone when the tissue heals. Although recovery times vary, they can last up to several months. Only after the implant has fully healed may a dental restoration (such as a dental bridge or crown) be affixed to it.

We can move forward with developing an artificial tooth and attaching it to the implant once enough healing has taken place.

A tiny metal post, called an abutment, will be inserted right into the implant. Your crown or bridge will be immediately connected to the abutment. This will be your new artificial tooth root.

We will take an impression after the abutment is in place, which will be utilised to create your unique crown or bridge. The abutment will be covered with a temporary crown or bridge until your personalised crown is ready.

Once your final crown is ready, you'll need to make one more quick appointment to attach it to your abutment and make sure it fits properly. There may also be follow-up appointments necessary to ensure that the dental implants are working fine and don't require further tweaking.

Types of Dental Implants

There are different kinds of dental implants that your dentist may suggest depending on your exact needs and the condition of your jaw bone. These include endosteal dental implants and subperiosteal dental implants.

Endosteal Dental Implants

The most prevalent kind of dental implant is endosteal. The majority of patients can benefit from them, but they need a strong, healthy jawbone for the post to fuse to.

They are designed like screws and serve as stand-in posts. They insert into the jaw, which is where the fake teeth are attached.

After the surgery, the wound needs some time to heal. It needs time to come together and fortify itself. The false teeth can be attached to the post to blend in with the neighbouring teeth once it has healed.

The second-most popular implant may appeal to you more if you don't like the notion of having anything inserted into your jawbone.

Subperiosteal Dental Implants

Subperiosteal implants lay on top of the jawbone but are still buried beneath the gums, as opposed to being fastened into the jawbone.

Under the gum, a metal frame with a post attached to it is positioned. Following that, the gum heals around the frame, holding it in place. The poles that protrude from the gum are used to hold the artificial teeth in place.

This method is only done when the patient's jawbone is insufficient for implant placement or when the patient simply does not want to undergo extensive oral surgery to add bone to the area.

Preparing for Your Dental Implant Procedure

Although dental implants are fairly straightforward, there are a few things that patients can do to help prepare themselves for the procedure.

Give a thorough dental history

A patient who requires dental implants must provide their dentist with their dental data. You will want to have all of your relevant dental history available in order for the dentist to properly plan your treatment.The development of a treatment plan and diagnosis are made easier by the sharing of information.

Research pricing, financing, and insurance coverage

Having a clear understanding of how much time, work, and money go into any dental procedure is always a good idea. Learn the entire process for obtaining a permanent dental bridge. The patient should inquire about payment arrangements and insurance acceptance before scheduling an appointment. The patient can make future plans thanks to this information.

Get ready for sedation and anaesthesia

Most dental procedures are made pain-free and comfortable for the patient due to anaesthetic. Accordingly, modern dentistry typically includes pain treatment. Sedation dentistry is also an option for patients who have anxiety when visiting the dentist. It is important to remember that medications the patient is taking may interact with painkillers.
