Implant Dentistry

Overview of Implant Dentistry

Implant dentistry is a branch of dentistry that involves the placement of artificial tooth roots (dental implants) to support a prosthetic tooth or multiple teeth. Dental implants are designed to replace missing teeth, and they are surgically inserted into the jawbone where they fuse with the surrounding bone, creating a stable and durable foundation for a crown, bridge, or denture.

Understanding the Dental Implant Procedure

Implant dentistry uses advanced technologies to restore missing teeth and it is often considered one of the best and most long lasting methods of tooth replacement. A conventional dental implant normally consists of three parts. The first part,a titanium post, is inserted into the jawbone where it gradually fuses with the bone, forming a strong anchorage point for the restoration, a process that will take several months. After the implant has healed and integrated, an abutment is attached to the post and this will hold the restoration in place.

Restoring Your Smile with Implant

Dental implants can support single crowns, bridges and even full dentures. This treatment can be particularly advantageous as the implant posts prevent bone loss in the jaw. The procedure to insert the implants is meticulously planned using cone beam CT scans and dental x-rays to ensure the implants are inserted in the optimal positions for both aesthetics and function.

Frequently Asked Questions

Implant dentistry is a specialised field of dentistry that focuses on replacing missing teeth with artificial tooth roots, known as dental implants. These implants provide a stable and durable foundation for crowns, bridges, or dentures by being surgically inserted into the jawbone and fusing with the surrounding bone over time. This process creates a strong anchorage point for prosthetic teeth, offering a long-lasting solution for tooth loss.
The dental implant procedure involves several steps. First, a titanium post is surgically inserted into the jawbone, where it integrates with the bone over a period of several months. This process, known as osseointegration, creates a solid foundation for the prosthetic tooth. Once the implant has fused with the jawbone, an abutment is attached to the post. This abutment serves as a connection point for the final restoration, which could be a crown, bridge, or denture, restoring the appearance and function of missing teeth.
Dental implants are an excellent solution for many people who have lost one or more teeth and are looking for a permanent and aesthetically pleasing replacement. Ideal candidates for dental implants have good oral health, sufficient jawbone to support the implant, and do not have health conditions that would impair healing. A consultation with our implant dentistry specialists can help determine if dental implants are the best option for you.
Dental implants offer numerous benefits, including improved appearance, enhanced oral health, increased comfort, and better function compared to traditional dentures or bridges. Implants are designed to look and feel like your own teeth, and because they fuse with the jawbone, they prevent bone loss and preserve facial structure. They also allow for easier eating and speaking, providing a level of comfort and confidence that other tooth replacement options may not offer.
