Implants

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw in order to replace a missing tooth. Dental implant is a metal screw which is made of titanium alloy.
 
What are the benefits of dental implants?
 
Missing teeth can lead to embarrassment. Dental implants can help you regain your natural smile, improving your appearance and self-confidence. Dental implants replace missing teeth without reducing the adjacent healthy natural teeth. In case of a patient having no teeth, dental implants can increase your comfort by getting rid of loose fitting dentures.
 
Implant procedure
 
Two surgeries are needed to place the implant. During the first surgery, the implant is placed in the jaw and covered with gum tissue. This requires a waiting period of 3-6 months. At the end of the healing period, a second surgery is done to expose the implant so that a restoration (the part that looks like teeth) can be placed.
Dental implants can be used to support a number of dental prostheses, including crowns, implant-supported bridges or over dentures.
 
Implant-supported crown
 
It is a good replacement for a missing single tooth. Implant supported crown is similar to your natural tooth in its function and looks. A single implant can be more aesthetic and is easier to keep clean than a bridge. Most importantly, sound adjacent teeth are not compromised as compared to a bridge.
 
Implant-supported bridge
 
Implant supported bridge is similar to a dental bridge but is supported by implants instead of natural teeth. It is used when more than one tooth is missing. In most cases, one implant is placed in the jawbone for each missing tooth.
 
Implant-supported denture
 
A regular denture rests on the gums whereas an implant-supported denture is supported by and attached to implants. This is used when a patient does not have any teeth
