Dental Implants (Artificial Root Supported Teeth)

Home/Services/Dental Implants (Artificial Root Supported Teeth)

Fondly referred as the “Third Dentition” that human beings can now have, the discovery of dental implants has forever changed the face of dentistry. Instead of taking support from two or more adjacent teeth to give a bridge, you can now replace your missing teeth with dental implants. Situations, in which there were no restorations possible except removable dentures, can be restored with a great deal of satisfaction and predictability with dental implant supported prostheses.

Dental implants are made of commercially pore Grade IV titanium that is placed as a substitute to the root of your missing tooth and allowed to heal for a certain period of time. After it is firmly sitting inside your jaw, a cap is given on top of the implant, which is now a part of your body. Titanium is highly biocompatible. Dental implants make it possible for us to offer you “fixed” teeth where we could earlier offer only removable dentures. In other situations, they save two intact adjacent teeth from getting cut to support a missing tooth’s cap.

The procedure to place an implant is extremely easy and requires the same kind of local anaesthesia as a tooth extraction. Usually, the procedure lasts for less than an hour. We will typically request some x-rays and scans prior to placement of implants to gauge the dimension of the proposed implant.

Implant Supported Fixed Teeth

Implants offer their maximum advantages in restoration of single missing teeth. In addition to saving the adjacent two teeth from going under the dental drill, single tooth implants offer an end result that feels lifelike in terms of appearance and function.

Implant Supported Removable Teeth

Tired of permanently loose dentures? Dental implants can be used to serve as the anchors that can support removable dentures. The dentures attach to the implants by means of a ball and socket joint. Implant supported dentures offer the dual advantage of firm fit and easy cleansibility due to the removable nature of the prosthesis.

Special Surgeries for Dental Implants

At times it may be necessary to perform some special surgeries before an implant of optimum dimensions can be inserted in place. These procedures typically begin right from the time of extraction of the offending tooth. After extraction, the body rapidly shrinks the available bone mass in the area. If you come to us a long time after you get your tooth extracted, chances are, you may need to undergo some kind of augmentation of bone to ensure safe placement of a strong enough implant. A small list of these procedures is given below:

  • Socket preservation
  • Ridge split
  • Ridge augmentation
  • Maxillary sinus lift
