Dental Implants

Over 10,000  Dental Implants completed

Dental implants are a revolutionary solution for individuals facing the dilemma of lost or damaged teeth. Essentially, they are titanium posts that are surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath the gum line, allowing your dentist to mount replacement teeth or a bridge into that area. One of the most significant benefits of dental implants is their ability to offer a stable support for artificial teeth, ensuring that bridges or dentures mounted to implants won't slip or shift in the mouth—an especially important feature while eating and speaking. This secure fit helps the dental prostheses feel more natural than traditional bridges or dentures.Another advantage is that dental implants do not require reducing other teeth, as a tooth-supported bridge does. This means that more of your own teeth are left intact, improving long-term oral health. Individual implants also allow easier access between teeth, improving oral hygiene.The accessibility of dental implants has significantly improved over the years. With advancements in technology and techniques, getting dental implants has become more efficient and less invasive. The procedure can usually be performed under local anaesthesia, and many patients report the process is less stressful than a tooth extraction. With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime, making them an excellent investment for those looking to restore their smile and functionality of their teeth.

How Dental Implants Work?

Dental implants address the issue of missing teeth by acting as a substitute for the tooth roots, providing a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are crafted to match your natural teeth. The process begins with the implantation of a titanium post into the jawbone where the missing tooth was located. Titanium is chosen for its durability and its ability to fuse with bone over time, a process known as osseointegration. This fusion not only provides stability to the implant but also helps preserve the jawbone and facial structure. Once the implant has bonded sufficiently with the jawbone, a small connector post—called an abutment—is attached to the post to securely hold the new tooth. Finally, a replacement tooth, or crown, is attached to the abutment, filling in the gap left by the missing tooth. This method of using dental implants allows for replacement teeth to look, feel, and function like natural teeth, restoring the individual's ability to eat comfortably and smile with confidence. will attach crowns to complete your smile. Whether you have lost teeth due to decay, gum diseases, poor oral hygiene, or any other concern, our implants can fill the gaps.

New 3D Technology

One of the key advancements in dental implant technology is the utilization of 3D X-ray imaging, or Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT). This innovative approach presents a significant benefit for both the dental professionals and patients. By offering a three-dimensional view of the jawbone, teeth, and surrounding structures, 3D X-rays enable dentists to plan the implant procedure with unparalleled precision. This meticulous planning process allows for accurate assessment of bone density and structure, vital for the successful placement of dental implants. Additionally, the technology aids in identifying the optimal location for the implant, avoiding nerves, and ensuring the best possible outcome. The precision afforded by 3D X-ray imaging not only increases the likelihood of implant success but also minimizes the risk of complications, resulting in a smoother, more efficient procedure and improved patient comfort.We combine 3D scans of your mouth with 3D digital X-rays to carefully strategize your implant surgery, ensuring a secure and predictable procedure. The use of 3D scans provides us with a highly detailed and accurate representation of your mouth, allowing us to visualize the exact placement of your dental implants. This level of precision ensures that the implants are positioned securely and optimally, maximizing their longevity and functionality.
