DENTAL IMPLANTS HAVE A CONSIDERABLE IMPACT ON MODERN DENTISTRY -

They offer a highly viable solution for replacing missing teeth. Dental implants are replacement for missing teeth which substitute the roots of missing teeth. They are made of medical grade titanium. Tooth loss leads to bone resorption leading to loss in height and width of bone. Implant can help prevent bone resorption. They can be used for

  • a single tooth
  • multiple teeth
  • all your teeth (implant dentures or all on four).

Stages of Dental Implants:

  • Stage 1: the titanium implants are placed inside the jawbone by surgery. This will remain covered inside the gums for about 3-6 months for healing to occur.
  • Stage 2: In this stage we uncover the implants and place abutment which supports the crown, bridge or denture.
  • Stage 3: new crown/bridge is placed just like we would do on natural teeth.
