Dental implants are the replacement tooth roots. It provides a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason. There are different kinds of Dental Implants like Endosteal, Zygomatic, Basal, Key Hole and pterygoid and mini dental Implants. Depending on the Bone condition ( Height , width and Density of Jaw bone) we will select the best Implant that will suit your Bone type.
For the patients who are planning for dental implants doctor focuses on the general health condition of the patient, the local health condition of the mucous membranes and the jaws and the shape, size, and position of the bones of the jaws, adjacent and opposing teeth. Adequate bone in your jaw is needed to support the implant, and the best candidates have healthy gum tissues that are free of periodontal disease.Depending on your specific condition and the type of implant chosen, ourImplantologistwill create a treatment plan tailored to meet your needs.
- Replacing a Single Tooth - If you are missing a single tooth, one implant and a crown can replace it.
- Replacing Several Teeth- If you are missing several teeth, implant-supported bridges can replace them.
- Replacing All of Your Teeth - If you are missing all of your teeth, an implant-supported full bridge or full denture can replace them.
- Sinus Augmentation- A key to implant success is the quantity and quality of the bone where the implant is to be placed. The upper back jaw has traditionally been one of the most difficult areas to successfully place dental implants due to insufficient bone quantity and quality and the close proximity to the sinus. Sinus augmentation can help correct this problem by raising the sinus floor and developing bone for the placement of dental implants.
- Ridge Modification- Deformities in the upper or lower jaw can leave you with inadequate bone in which to place dental implants. To correct the problem, the gum is lifted away from the ridge to expose the bony defect. The defect is then filled with bone or bone substitute to build up the ridge. Ridge modification has been shown to greatly improve appearance and increase your chances for successful implants that can last for years to come.
Dental implants require the same care as real teeth it includes brushing, flossing, rinsing with an antibacterial mouthwash, and regular dental check-ups. After the dental implant surgery mild soreness can be treated with over-the-counter pain medications, such as Tylenol or Motrin.
