Dental implant is the closest to natural solution in replacing missing tooth. It is an artificial tooth root where the artificial tooth or crown will be attached. Titanium is the most commonly used material, because it is biocompatible or it does not harm the living tissue. Implants can be used in replacing a single tooth or it could also be used in conjunction with other restorative procedures for maximum effectiveness, like support a bridge for the replacement of multiple missing teeth used with dentures to increase stability. During the placement of a dental implant, the goal is to achieve a close contact between the outer surface of the implant and the surrounding bone tissue so they can “fuse” together (osseointegration), creating a stable support for the new teeth. Our implant procedure is guaranteed done only by our highly experienced certified specialist to guarantee the esthetic and excellent clinical result.
DIFFERENT TYPES OF DENTAL PROCEDURE
- Single tooth replacement / implant-supported crown -because the implant acts as the support for the crown, and not the adjacent teeth, this helps in preserving the integrity of its adjacent teeth which will prevent future damage to these teeth.
- Implant–supported bridge – this type of procedure is better option than denture or dental bridge in many ways because it prevents bone resorption, acts like a natural root for the bridge, making it more stable than partial dentures, the implant look, act and feel like natural teeth.
- Implant-supported dentures – dentures are often ill fitting (especially lower dentures) and have but a fraction of the chewing and cutting efficiency of natural teeth. This procedure is used to secure and stabilize the denture. Implant-supported denture typically requires two to four dental implants on each jaw. The denture is still removable, but it is connected by ball and socket connection for a more stable denture. When denture is supported by implant, the biting force greatly increases as compared conventional denture.
