DENTAL IMPLANTS

 

dental_implants.jpgWhy Dental Implants?

Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth as they are a fixed solution. Dental Implants are the closest replacement to a natural tooth. Dental implants are fixed in the mouth and hold the bone structure of the jaw. Dental implants function just like real teeth

 

 

 

What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is an option to replace a missing tooth. In this procedure, a small titanium shaft is surgically implanted into the bone and allowed to set. The bone grows around it forming a tight connection, which additionally slows or stops the bone loss that occurs when the root of a natural tooth is missing. Once the implant is firmly set in the mouth, the dentist then works to attach the replacement tooth onto the top of the shaft. This permanent solution has the advantages over bridge work that it does not stress the surrounding teeth for support, and, should the tooth wear out, another can simply be replaced on the shaft.


Dental Implants can also be used as support as part of an implant bridge. This is an alternative to partial dentures, and has several advantages. First, there is no adjustment period to acclimatize the patient who, once the work is done, only feels teeth, not metal supports intruding into the mouth. Second, this slows the bone loss occasioned by missing teeth. Third, there is no discomfort or difficulty in eating. And, best of all, of course, they don't have to be taken out all the time.

We also offer mini dental implants. These implants are about half the diameter of traditional implants are used mainly to stabilize lower dentures. These implants can be placed in one appointment and be immediately used. The cost is 50-70% of standard dental implants.

 The types of implants and the variations on reconstructing the tooth on top is different from person to person so it is very important that you consult with your dentist on what you are actually getting from your treatment. The materials, component's and demands on aesthetics will determine the final cost of your implant work.
