Dental Implant

Dental implants can be your key to a perfect smile. As the name suggests, it is used to recreate lost tooth roots. After surgically placing it in the jawbone, it can support replacement teeth and thus filling unnecessary gaps. Dental implants can be usually made up of various metals and other materials. However, titanium and zirconia are two of the most common materials used.

What is the procedure of getting dental implants?

A patient can have several reasons to get a tooth replacement. It might be the ill-health of the tooth, unusual gaps or to correct the structure for a flawless smile. Dental implants can be a simple solution to all these problems.

Dental implants are placed in the jawbone of the patient through surgery. This method includes making a small incision into the soft tissue where the implant is ultimately placed. A covering is placed over the implant site. This protective cap keeps the soft tissue in proper shape, allowing it to heal. This is the place that the replacement tooth is placed later.

The implant post is allowed to settle in for a considerable period until it starts functioning like natural roots of the teeth. After ensuring the proper functioning, the replacement tooth or teeth are attached to it.

Am I an ideal candidate for dental implants?

If you are someone unhappy with the positioning of your teeth and looking for a correction, then you might be right about for implants. The number of implants will then depend on the positioning of your teeth and the gap areas. The main motive of the procedure is to align the dental structure for a flawless smile. The teeth structure will decide the positioning of the implants to support it.

With time technology evolved and procedures became more quick and effective. Today, any patient who wants to get implants can get it done. However, the patient is expected to meet specific health criteria. Some of which includes-
Favourable health conditions
Favourable gum and nearby tissue conditions with enough supportive bones for the effective functioning of the implant.
The favourable response from the candidate’s side as the process can be time-taking.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Losing teeth can be a problem for a person in their daily lives. It not only decreases the self-confidence of the person but also creates difficulty in eating or speaking. Such problems can last with the patient for a long time. Dental implants are an effective long-term solution to all such issues. It is seen that dental health improves after getting implants.

It also enhances the life of the patients. Candidates have reported better confidence and ease in performing activities like eating and speaking. The success rate of implants is very high with little maintenance after the procedure. Implants function and look like natural teeth.

Do I need to take care of my implants?

Yes, it is very essential to take care of your implants after the procedure is over. Dental implants have a pretty high success rate, but there is still a possibility that the implant will fail to function properly. Such possibilities, however very rare, include infection under the implant, osseointegration or few mechanical problems.

It is thus, better to avoid such complications by taking good care of your implants. You must use a soft-bristled brush and a non-abrasive toothpaste for avoiding causing damage to the replacement teeth. The candidate must also make sure to maintain good dental hygiene. Flossing must be done carefully using the specially designed floss. String floss can also be used. Make sure to visit your dentist regularly. Regular appointments can not only assure better oral health but also keeps the implant in check.

After the procedure, the patient is expected to take semi-liquid food for a while. The implants must get enough time to heal after which the patient can return to their regular diet. Hard to chew food is restricted for a few days following the procedure. After recovery, the patient can return to their usual diet and enjoy all of their favourite food.

Dental implants are your gateway to boosting your self-confidence. With a high success rate of the procedure, implants can be one of your best long-term investments which will give you the desired results.

ALL on FOUR - ALL on SIX Concept

Through years of research and clinical trials, a novel approach to replace missing teeth in the entire jaw has been developed. This unique approach allows us to place 4 to 6 implants without the need for major bone graft and/or sinus surgeries on the upper arch and avoid the nerve damage in the lower arch.

In four implant scenarios, 2 implants in the back are tilted to avoid vital structures without sacrificing the how far back the teeth can be safely restored. We usually take a 3D x-rays of your jaw and import the image into patented Blue sky Plan software. We then scan your jaw with our intra oral scanner, ITero, or scan your impressions.

We utilize this modern technology to perform Mock Surgery via computer simulation. This process, perfected by us, results in very accurate and easy staging of the actual treatment. Although this procedure is usually expensive but without unique approach and financial arrangement, you can get started with minimal down payment and stage the treatment so that you don't have to worry about your pocket.

Call us today to schedule a free Consult and 3D x-rays, where available. We guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Loose Denture or Flopping Dentures?

Most dentures, once made, leads to a rapid loss of the underlying bone leading to a shrinkage of the tissues. Dentures, thus become loose and floppy, tend to fall out while eating. Sometimes this problem can be resolved with the use of the denture adhesive. Denture adhesives are not really patient friendly and prolonged use can lead to change in the taste and excessive salivation.

Dental implants can be used to “fix” your denture to the underlying bone. It's an easy procedure, called Over denture. Implants are placed in the jaw and are fitted with retentive part, usually called, anchor. A corresponding part is retrofitted in the denture. This process is very cost effective ad usually takes about an hour to complete. You walk in the Loose dentures and walk out with renewed comfort.
