Implants

Saving your natural tooth should always be your first choice when dental care is needed. When a damaged or decayed tooth must be removed, both the visible part of the tooth, called the crown, and the root are lost. Dental implants are the closest you can get to healthy, natural teeth. They will allow you to confidently eat, smile, laugh, talk and enjoy all of your regular activities of everyday life without thinking about your teeth.

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is surgically placed into your jawbone so it can fuse with your natural bone and become a strong base for replacement tooth or bridge in place. Implants can be used to replace an individual tooth or for an implant-supported bridge or denture containing multiple teeth. The benefit of using implants is that they don't rely on neighboring teeth for support and they are permanent and stable.

You can have any number of teeth replaced with implants - from one single tooth to a complete upper or lower set of teeth. If you need to restore a full arch, you may be a perfect candidate for the all-on-four or all-on-six  treatment. Surgeon will place four(six) implants and then attach a full arch of teeth to them.

Dental implants typically have three parts:

1) The implant: A screw that serves as a substitute for the tooth root of your new teeth. This is what permanently attaches to your jaw.
2)  The abutment: A connector, is placed on the top of the dental implant, permanent but removable by your doctor if needed, holds and supports a tooth or teeth.
3)  The crown (or prosthetic tooth): is prosthetic tooth, made of zirconium or porcelain to match your natural teeth.

If you have lost teeth you are a candidate for dental implants. However, there are some conditions and diseases that can affect whether dental implants are right for you. For example, uncontrolled diabetes, cancer, radiation to the jaws, smoking, alcoholism, or uncontrolled periodontal (gum) disease may affect whether dental implants will fuse to your bone. It is important to let us know all about your medical status (past and present) together with all medications you are taking, whether prescribed, alternative (herbal) or over-the-counter.

 We will be able to give you a rough timetable before the treatment starts.

After your implants have been placed, the bone in your jaw needs to grow onto them and fuse to them. This usually takes a few months. Sometimes the implants may be stable enough when they are placed for the false teeth to be fitted sooner than this.

 If you already have full dentures, you can keep wearing these while your implants are healing. Your dentures will need altering, to fit properly after the surgery.

The success rate for implants depends on the tooth's purpose and location in the mouth, as well as a patient's overall health.

Poor oral hygiene is a big reason why some implants fail. Your  will be provided with specific instructions on how to care for your new implants.

Taking good care of your dental implants is vital for long-term success. With proper home care and professional maintenance, your new teeth can last for life.
