Implantology

Implants are the latest dental procedures to replace lost Single or Multiple teeth using root like metallic structures made up of Titanium.

If teeth are lost due to accident, gum disease, Dental caries or failed endodontic treatment, etc.. they must be replaced as soon as possible, If not, the bone around that area resorbs as days go by. Sometimes the adjacent teeth tilts towards each other and the teeth in the opposing jaw grows more than the rest of the teeth, causing a disturbance in the occlusion.

Traditionally, replacing teeth are done using either Removable dentures or Fixed Crown and Bridge. Removable dentures compromise the good quality of life causing difficulty in talking and discomfort at times. They also need to be removed and cleaned after every meal. To have Fixed Crown and Bridges the neighboring teeth have to be ground and sometimes Root canal treated .In conditions where sound teeth are not present on both sides of the missing teeth then crown and bridge work is not feasible-Implant is the best option.

For implant procedures the neighboring teeth need not to be ground and Root canal treated. One or many or even complete set of teeth can be replaced. Once the Implants are integrated well, they give the same comfort as the strong original teeth while eating and speaking. Implants stay in the mouth for more than 20 years or even more if proper care is taken.

Placement of implants is very comfortable and not very painful for the patients. The procedure can most often be carried out painlessly under local anesthesia. This means you are awake, but the part of your mouth being worked on is completely numb. In some cases, sedation may be available, which helps you to relax and make you less aware of the procedure. For some patients, it may be preferable to have the procedure carried out under general anesthesia, where you will be asleep throughout until the procedure is over.

Implants are made up of Titanium alloy using high precision techniques in producing them and backed by Long term clinical research by Multicentre studies. These Implants are highly bio-compatible and jaw bones accept them with great affinity.

  • Implants are an alternative to conventional bridges and partial dentures.
  • If you find that your full dentures move around a lot, implants will help to anchor the denture in place.
  • When teeth are lost, the jawbone may start to shrink. Implants can help slow this process down.
  • Your dentist may recommend using implants to support a bridge rather than cut into healthy teeth either side of a gap.
