Dental Implants, Everlasting Solution For Missing teeth
Dental implants are titanium tooth roots that are surgically fixed by a cosmetic dentist in position to obtain permanent replacement teeth. These are placed when a whole tooth is missing or removed. Of all the methods modern dentistry has to restore missing teeth, dental implants are by far the reliable. There is no tooth-replacement option that will give you an everlasting result. Implants also help protect tooth-supporting bone that naturally declines when a tooth is lost. Loss of bone is one of the major hidden results of losing teeth.

Process of Placing Dental Implants
A dental implant common often takes the form of a small, screw-shaped titanium post that replaces the root-part of a missing tooth. The surgical procedure used to fix an implant is actually quite minor and routine, requiring only local anesthesia in most cases. After a healing period, the implant is covered with a lifelike crown custom-made to match your existing natural teeth. Implants have a documented success rate of over 95%, which is significantly higher than any other tooth-replacement option.
How Dental Implants Work
Through a small surgical procedure, your dental implant is implanted directly into the jawbone in the space left by the missing tooth. It will then be left to heal for a period of months before the final crown is attached. During this healing period, the implant actually joins to the bone envelope it.
Single tooth implant
If you are losing a single tooth, one implant and a crown can replace it. A dental implant restores both the lost natural tooth and its root.
First, the implant, which looks like a screw, is fixed into your jaw. Over the next two to six months, the implant and the bone are conceded to bond together to form an anchor for your artificial tooth. During this time, a short tooth replacement option can be worn over the implant site.
A Next step of the procedure is needed to uncover the implant and attach an extension. This temporary healing cap creates the foundation on which your new tooth will be placed. Your gums will be allowed to heal for a couple of weeks following this procedure.
Finally, a replacement tooth named a crown will be built for you by your dentist and attached to a small alloy post, called an abutment. After a small time, you will feel restored confidence in your smile and your ability to chew and speak. Dental implants are so natural-looking and feeling, you may forget you ever lost a tooth.
Multiple teeth Implant
If you have Multiple teeth loss, implants provide an ideal replacement mechanism. You don’t even require one implant for each missing tooth. Instead, implant teeth can function as supports for fixed bridgework. For example, if you are missing four teeth in a row(See the Image below), we can place two implants, one on either side of the gap, and a crown in between that has no implant underneath. That way, you won’t need to use any of your remaining natural teeth as bridge supports, which could weaken them and make them more susceptible to decay.
An innovative and entirely new technique for dental implantation, where there is no need for bone augmentation in even critical cases.
They vary from traditional implants essentially through the performance of the prosthetic structure and post-operative regime, but also in terms of their placing and force distribution. Also, the implants are one single unit and made of biocompatible titanium metal.
