What to expect from Dental implants :
- Natural look and comfortable fit.
Dental implants are designed to look, feel, and function like your natural teeth. In addition, implants give confidence to smile, eat, and engage in social activities without worrying about how they look or if their dentures will fall out.
- Long-lasting and reliable.
With 6 monthly checkup’s, care and maintenance, implants last as several years, with predictable outcomes.
- High success rate.
In healthy oral cavity dental implants have over 90% success rate.smoking and poor oral hygiene can reduce the success of dental implants.
- Improved ability to eat and chew.
Dental implants are anchored in your jaw bone just like natural teeth. Over time they will help preserve the jaw bone and significantly reduce bone resorption. Replacing missing teeth with implants allow you to chew your food better and speak more clearly.
- Improved facial and bone features.
Dental implants preserve natural tooth tissue by avoiding the need to cut down adjacent teeth for conventional bridgework. They also will preserve bone and significantly reduce bone resorption and deterioration that results in loss of jawbone height. Dental implants also help restore your jawbone structure because they reduce the load on the remaining oral structures/teeth and preserve natural tooth tissue and reduce bone resorption and deterioration that results in loss of jawbone height.A dental implant is a prosthetic replacement for a missing tooth. Natural teeth consist of the crown and the root. The crown is the visible section that is covered with white enamel. Supporting the crown is the tooth root which extends into the jawbone. The root is the part of the tooth that is effectively replaced by an implant. There are commonly three parts to what is described as an implant – the implant device itself (which is inserted directly into the bone); the abutment – the piece that connects the implant device to the third part – the overlying crown or denture.
Implants can be used to replace a single tooth, several adjacent teeth, all missing teeth in a jaw, or to support a removable or fixed denture. The number of implants being placed will depend on the final restoration and the amount of bone available for the implant.
