Dental implants are artificial roots made of titanium positioned into the jawbone to replace the missing teeth. 

Who can have dental implants? 

Anybody having a missing tooth and in a good condition of health can have dental implants. 

Why should i have implants? 

  • If you have a missing tooth, that part of the jaw bone begin to shrink. Unhealthy bone structure may leas to a change in the shape of your face. Dental implants protects the bone around and thus protects the natural shape of your face. 
  • They are a better and long term alternative treatment when compared to traditional crown - beidge applications placed on natural teeth. By means of dental implants, your missing teeth are replaced without the need to cut the healthy surrounding teeth. 
  • Implants are longlasting and are a 100% piece of you. They are used as a maintainer on removable dentures which move while eating or speaking and having a problem of adaptation. Thus your denture is fixed; and you sre comfortable, safe and fretless. 

Single Dental Implants

In a case of missing a single tooth, dental implants can be preferred to traditional dental bridges. In a standard bridge application, surrounding teeth have to be cut down in order to cement the bridge on them. In an implant application, your missing teeth is replaced by an implant and your healthy natural teeth remain untouched, thus safe. 

Multiple Tooth Implants

Partial removable dentures used in multiple missing teeth may lead to loss of a more amount of bone and teeth. If you have multiple missing teeth, especially missing molar teeth that are preventing you to have fixed dentures; you do not need to use removable dentures with help of dental implants. Instead of removable dentures, fixed implant bridge applications can be used. Thus your missing teeth are replaced and the health of the bone and soft tissue around the implant is preserved. 

Implant Supported Dentures

Dental implants are the most efficient choice to support removable dentures which are used in cases of missing all of the teeth. If you have lost all of your teeth and you are using full dentures, which are removable, an implant supported overdenture would be ideal for you. 

Full dentures lose their maintenance in time and they cause lose of bones. Unstable dentures lead to sores, difficulty in chewing, and have bad effect on your speaking and appearance. Ball retained implants placed on your lower and upper jaw bones help your denture be fixed; and you can smile, eat and speak safely with your implant. 

Dental Implant Procedure

Your dental and medical history are evaluated carefully. If dental implants are suitable for you, your treatment is going to be planned according to your panoramic XRay.

Placing the implant body

Implants are buried in your jaw bone with local aenesthesia. This is an easy and short process and it is not painful. 

Placing the Abutment

In a 2-6 month period implants integrate with jaw bone (osteointegration). During this period, temporary dentures can be worn. When osteointegration is completed, abutment, which will connect to the prosthetic tooth, is placed. Implant sizes are measured and for the fixed restroration, the prosthetic tooth is fabricated and placed.
