Dental Implants offer a permanent solution for missing teeth (or tooth), helping restore bite force very similar to that of your natural teeth. Implants are the only teeth replacement option that help prevent jaw bone loss and prevent your face from changing shape. They are often used to address –
1. Missing tooth (or a couple of teeth) – A Dental Implant is a permanent teeth replacement option that comes closest to replacing your natural teeth. It is the premium or gold standard in replacing a missing tooth. If you are missing a couple of teeth, an Implant Retained Bridge supported by an underlying implant can provide a secure and permanent solution.
2. Missing teeth on either side of the jaw – Dentures have traditionally been used to replace missing teeth on either side of the jaw. However, Implant Retained Dentures are increasingly the treatment of choice, giving a patient a more permanent and secure solution.
3. Broken or uncomfortable dentures – Implant Retained Dentures are a more secure, stable and permanent option as compared to traditional dentures. They are more comfortable to wear, smaller in the mouth and more natural looking, allowing for normal chewing and eating.
A successful dental implant is often dependent on two main factors – an experienced Implantologist and the implant system used. We recommend you choose a dentist who has extensive academic and research credentials and many years of practical experience in placing dental implants. The type of system used and quality of the implant system also plays a key role in the long term success of dental implants. We recommend using only reliable, long-lasting and high quality systems – systems with a track record of success. The actual implant placement procedure is relatively straight forward, however, can often vary based on individual needs.
Single Tooth Implant
Implant Supported Bridge
Implant treatment includes planting a post in the jaw bone to support a replacement artificial tooth. The post acts like the root of a natural tooth. The procedure normally has two stages. In the first stage, the implant is placed in the jaw. Once the jaw has healed, replacement teeth are attached to the implant as part of the second stage.
