Have you lost your teeth and looking for a fixed replacement? The permanent solution is Dental Implants. It is the latest innovation in dentistry to replace one or more teeth to restore chewing and aesthetics. Implant dentistry offers many choices for long-lasting, fixed and stable replacements of single or multiple missing teeth.
A dental implant acts like a tooth root, supporting the crown, bridge or a denture. The selection of the dental implant depends on the amount of bone and the number of missing teeth.
Full arch replacement is an option to replace all missing teeth or teeth in poor condition. Implant supported dentures or bridges can help replace the full arch with 2 to 4 implants in each jaw.
Implant supported bridges are an option to replace the full arch with 6 to 8 implants in each jaw, supporting a dental bridge consisting of 14 to 16 crowns in each jaw.
Full arch replacement often requires guided implant surgery, to facilitate the right diagnosis, proper evaluation, treatment planning and accurate implant placement. We prepare a customized surgical guide using 3-D imaging techniques, to aid accurate placement of the implant.
A single dental implant can help replace a single missing tooth to restore chewing and improve aesthetics. Dental implants play a key role in maintaining the structural integrity of all the teeth.
Mini dental implants are used to support loose-fitting dentures as an alternative to normal dental implants.
3-D Imaging helps to visualize anatomic structures of the mouth in three dimensions for implant placing. It enables accuracy, diagnosis, treatment planning and precision.
Bone augmentation helps achieve the required bone dimensions for implant stability. Bone augmentation can be planned ahead of implant placement or at the time of implant placement.
Soft tissue grafting around implants improves the quality and quantity of gums (gingival tissue). This enhances aesthetics, prevents food lodgement and maintains the gum margins.
Sinus augmentation increases the bone thickness and improves implant stability.
Ridge modification is an effective procedure to treat the deformities or defects of upper and lower jaw bones that enables a suitable bone for dental implants.
Transforming Smiles with Dental Implants
Patients consider dental implants a boon as it helps to get rid of loose ill-fitting dentures, that hinder chewing, talking or smiling. The missing teeth lost from gum disease, decay, and injury can be replaced by dental implants. This enhances facial aesthetics and confidence too.
The advancements in dental technology have led to more senior citizens leading active and productive lives, for a few decades. Dental implants are proving to be cost-effective, efficient and safe alternatives to removable, complete or partial dentures.
