  • What is the procedure for dental implants?

    The procedure for dental implants involves several key steps, carried out over multiple visits:

    1. Consultation and Planning: An initial examination to assess your oral health, take necessary scans, and develop a personalized treatment plan.
    2. Preparation: If needed, tooth extraction or bone grafting is performed to prepare your jawbone.
    3. Implant Placement: A titanium implant post is surgically placed into the jawbone, where it will serve as the new tooth root. This is done under local anesthesia to minimize discomfort.
    4. Healing Period: A period of healing (osseointegration) follows, where the implant fuses with the jawbone, usually taking several months.
    5. Abutment Placement: Once the implant has bonded with the jawbone, an abutment is attached to the post to hold the new tooth.
    6. Crown Attachment: Finally, a custom-made crown, matching your natural teeth, is attached to the abutment.
  • What types of dental implants exist?

    There are primarily two types of dental implants:

    • Endosteal Implants: The most common type, these implants are placed directly into the jawbone, acting as an artificial root to hold a replacement tooth or bridge.
    • Subperiosteal Implants: These are placed under the gum but on or above the jawbone, suitable for patients who do not have enough healthy jawbone and do not want to undergo a bone augmentation procedure to rebuild it.
  • What are the benefits of dental implants?

    Dental implants offer several benefits, making them a preferred choice for tooth replacement:

    • Natural Look and Feel: Implants provide the most natural-looking and functional tooth replacement, improving your appearance and speech.
    • Durability: With proper care, implants are very durable and can last many years, often for a lifetime.
    • Bone Health: They help to maintain and stimulate bone growth, preventing bone loss and maintaining facial structure.
    • Improved Oral Health: Unlike bridges, implants do not require reducing other teeth, preserving more of your own teeth and improving long-term oral health.
    • Comfort and Confidence: Implants eliminate the discomfort of removable dentures and give you back your confidence to eat, laugh, and enjoy life.
