Dental Implants

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that provide a permanent base for fixed, replacement teeth. Compared to dentures, bridges and crowns, dental implants are a popular and effective long-term solution for people who suffer from missing teeth, failing teeth or chronic dental problems. Because they fit, feel and function like natural teeth, dental implants are quickly becoming a new standard in tooth replacement.

Dental implants typically have three parts:

  • The implant: A screw that serves as a root for your new teeth. This is what permanently attaches to your jaw.
  • The abutment: A permanent, but removable by your doctor, connector that supports and holds a tooth or set of teeth.
  • The crown: This is the part of the tooth that you can see. It’s usually made of zirconium or porcelain for durability and good looks.

Understanding Dental Implants

Dental implants are an ideal solution for replacement of individuals, several or all your teeth when we have 3 most important factors of form, function and aesthetics in mind. Implant is assembled of a titanium or zirconia post, a dental crown, and a device called an abutment that connects them, these mechanics are exactly similar to how a natural tooth anchors itself to jaw bone. It also stimulates bone growth in jaw to help maintain a stable foundation for all your remaining natural teeth and implants.

Why Dental Implants?

Benefits of implants:

  • You can enjoy your favourite food as the ability to bite and chew foods like natural teeth is regained.
  • With few or all teeth missing, the face has a sunken appearance and one looks much older than actual age. This is reversed immediately with implants and a well-balanced, natural and radiant smile is achieved.
  • Dental implants once done, last for a lifetime if proper care is taken and regular check-ups with the dentist is made.

We at Right choice dental care offer a wide range of dental implant treatments, including single implants, zirconia implants, and All-on-4® that replace an entire arch of teeth with only four implanted posts and a denture. We also offer same-day implants. Dental implants are often a critical part of full mouth rehabilitation programs.

What is the procedure of dental implant?

Implant procedures are absolutely painless and extremely comfortable. Procedure begins with comprehensive dental examination including state-of-the-art digital X-rays. Dentists will determine bone density to ensure its strength to support implants. If there is bone loss in the jaw then the dentist will provide a bone graft or sinus lift before starting the rest of the implant process. A complete treatment plan is prepared for the procedure. Depending on the need we can provide same-day dental implants, or you might have several appointments for the various implantation steps.

  • Step 1 – Dentists will surgically place dental implant posts in your jaw. For conventional implants, we need to wait for a few months for the post to bond with the jawbone.
  • Step 2 – After a few months’ dentist will attach abutment and take pictures and impression of your mouth to custom design and manufacture your crowns.
  • Step 3 – Dentists fit the crowns onto your dental implants, check your bite, and polish the implants until they shine.
  • Step 4 – Dentist explains how to take care of your new implants.

How to take care of dental implants

Another benefit of dental implants apart from looking and acting just like regular natural teeth, is their ease of care. Regular brushing and Flossing are enough for lifelong durability of implants. implants aren’t vulnerable to decay but regular dental appointments with a dentist are necessary to monitor the health of your jaw and any remaining natural teeth, as well as your gums.

Implant procedure can be done in

In this type implant procedure healing abutment is placed at the time of surgery. Abutment serves as a base for the crown. It acts as a connector between jaw bone and crown. Following a 3 to 4 months healing period in which the implant fuses to the bone, a crown is then placed on the implant restoring the immediate appearance of a healthy, normal tooth. This procedure is recommended by our dentist when there is good initial stabilization of the implant (tight fitting to bone). There is no or minimal risk of infection and when cosmetics is not a concern, such as the back areas of the mouth.
In this type of implant procedure, the implant(s) are placed into the jawbone and the gum tissues cover them. They are not exposed to the mouth, but stay buried and left to heal. Three to six months later another surgery is done to expose the implant and place the healing abutment. This procedure is recommended by our dentist when there is no immediate need for a cosmetic solution, more margin of safety is required, bone quality or quantity is poor or the patient has some health conditions.
This procedure involves placement of dental implant immediately into fresh extraction socket site after tooth extraction. Immediate placement and immediate loading offer an array of benefits for the patient, including shorter treatment time and significantly reduced time (if any) spent with a gap in the dentition. It provides very good long-term results. Initially limited to healthy sites, the indications of this procedure have expanded even to infected sites, with reduced periodontal support though with taking special precautions.

Diagnosis and treatment planning done by our dentists are key factors in achieving successful outcomes after placing and restoring implants placed immediately after tooth extraction.

I feel so nice, and Dr. Patel so professional.
