About

Dental Implants are first choice of treatment to replace missing tooth that feels & mimics a natural tooth. Neither you nor anyone else can tell the difference.

Dental Implants have been around since the 1950's & in last 10 years have been perfected due to A.D.A. (American Dental Association) acceptance & a very high rate of success. Dental Implants are life-like teeth that are placed in your mouth. They provide a stable fit that improve appearance, speech, comfort & the ability to chew & enjoy food. Many people regret losing their teeth. In the past, conventional dentistry has not always provided an acceptable replacement for these lost teeth until now. As the Implanted teeth are fixed in the mouth rather than removable like dentures, they allow the wearer to return to the comfort & function associated with the natural teeth. Implants provide a solid foundation of support in the mouth for permanent, non-removable teeth. Dental implants can be used in a variety of situations, whether you need to replace a single missing tooth or many teeth. They can even be used to replace a full denture. As anchor points, implantss can securely attach a partial denture or bridge. The new tooth looks, feel & performs just like your natural teeth. Removable dentures, plates, partials & bridges have always been a compromise when replacing lost teeth. With dental Implants you can have life-like teeth again, just like when you were 18 years old.

Procedure

Dental Implants are considered the ultimate solution for tooth replacement, they are the first choice to replace the missing teeth. The dental implantss process involves several steps that take place over a time period that averages from 4-9 months. The Key to a successful dental-implants restoration is the development of a comprehensive treatment plan that considers the overall condition. It must be made sure that there is no uncontrolled infection in the mouth that jeopardize the implants success. The typical process includes following steps :-

INITIAL IMPLANT PLACEMENT : - 
The first step is the placement of the titanium implants. The doctor places the small implants into your jaw. The implants will remain covered underneath the gum for approx. 3-6 months. During this time, the bone gets attach to the surface of the implants anchoring it into its position.

ATTACHING A POST :-
The second step of the procedure involves the implants & attaching a post, which completes the foundation on which the new tooth will be placed. Sometimes, the doctor may also place the post at the time of the initial placement of the implants.

IMPLANT PROSTHETIC ATTACHMENT :-
During this phase, new/artificial tooth is placed by the dentist. With the use of latest technologies the new artificial tooth, that blends with the remaining natural teeth & ensures optimal size, shape & color, is placed by the dentist.

ORAL HYGIENE :-
Poor Oral Hygiene can jeopardize the implants success. Although implantss don't get cavities, they are susceptible to peri-implantsitis, an infection of the supporting bone that can lead to bone loss & eventual implants failure. Meticulous oral hygiene, periodic checkups & professional cleanings around the implantss are just as important as around teeth.

Benefits

Missing & damaged teeth are a common problem. One may miss his natural smile or may not be able to eat the food of his desire. Perhaps the remaining teeth might be shifting, or one may suffer from muscle strain & headaches. With dental implants & prosthetic solutions most people can now get new teeth that look , feel & function like the real thing. With the missing teeth, the surrounding bone begins to shrink. This unhealthy bone loss can make the jawline recede. Dental implantss can help prevent deterioration of the jawbone caused by loss of teeth, retaining the natural shape of your face.

As the dental implantss are securely anchored, there is no slipping or movement as there is with dentures. There is no gum irritation & pain from the exposed nerves. Dental-Implants make you eat your favorite food without pain or fear of embarrassment. Dental-implantss make you look better, feel better & live more confidently. They improve your appearance & boost self-confidence.

Mini Implants

The mini implantss compare favorably to the conventional implantss in many ways. However there are instances when it may be more appropriate to use conventional implantss or a combination of both.

As a revolutionary departure from routine implants methods, mini implantss are so narrow they are typically inserted directly through the overlying gum tissue and into the bone underneath. Consequently the need to surgically cut and “flap” open the gum tissue, routinely required for standard implants systems, is avoided in most mini implants applications. As a result, post-insertion irritation and soreness is significantly reduced. While all dental implantss require care during insertion to avoid encroaching on vulnerable nerve, sinus or bony structures, the ultra small width of the mini implantss offers a much more comfortable margin of safety.

Unlike the conventional dental bridges, the healthy adjacent teeth are left untouched. Implants are made of titanium, a biocompatible material, not rejected by the human body.
