Dental implants replace missing teeth and also secure other forms of tooth restoration, which includes dentures and crowns. Implants also stabilise artificial tooth installations to provide patients with optimum comfort and security.
Patients wearing dentures can also benefit from dental implants. Over time, they are most likely to suffer due to oral contours and slipping teeth. Fortunately, dental implants also provide dentures with improved stability. No need to worry about slipping dentures when you eat or laugh.
Apart from stabilisation purposes, implants also replace tooth roots for tooth loss due to decay, trauma or gum disease. Made from titanium posts, our practice inserts implants through the gum tissue through a small custom-drilled space in the jawbone. The implants are designed to fuse with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration.
We fit permanent dental implants and also fix a tooth restoration (porcelain crown or denture) on the upper or lower arch of the teeth. Dental implants can also support partial and full dentures for the best retention and can secure bridges too.
To determine if you are a potential candidate, we examine the condition of your jawbone and determine suitability for the treatment. Our clinician will assess your oral health for the appropriateness of the procedure.
Not everyone is suitable for the treatment. Unsuitable candidates include patients with extremely narrow jawbones or possess little space between the jawbone and sinus cavity.
When suitable, dental implants offer the best option of standard care compared to other treatment options for missing and damaged teeth. There are numerous advantages to implants, some of which include the following:
Dental implants offer patients an effective, safe and secure way to replace lost teeth. These do not require special cleaning techniques and lasts for a long period if taken care of properly.
