Dental Implants

Dental implants provide a strong foundation for permanent or removable prosthesis (replacement teeth) that are made to match your natural teeth. They are manufactured from biologically neutral pure Titanium or titanium alloys, that is accepted by the human body and these implants fuse with the jawbone to form a secure foundation for tooth replacement.

TYPES OF DENTAL IMPLANTS

There are two basic types of implants available at our dental clinic. In certain cases, conventional or immediate implants may be followed by immediate loading of crowns and bridges known as immediately loaded implants.

CONVENTIONAL IMPLANTS

  • Conventional implants are applicable to almost anyone who is looking to replace one, multiple, all missing teeth with a permanent restoration solution.
  • Conventional implants are done in 2 stages normally in 2 trips about 3 to 6 months apart.
  • Conventional implants may be done for most types of bone conditions. If there is moderate or severe jaw bone loss, bone grafting may be recommended prior to dental implantation.

IMMEDIATE IMPLANTS

  • Immediate implants are also known as one day or same day implants.
  • This is the case whereby dental implants is placed during the same time after teeth are extracted. Crowns, bridge, dentures may or may not be placed on during same trip depending on whether immediate loaded implants may be done.
  • Immediate implants are normally recommended only for cases with good jaw bone conditions.

IMMEDIATE LOADED IMPLANTS

  • Immediate loaded implants are whereby permanent or temporary crowns,bridges or dentures are placed during the same trip when the dental implant posts is embedded in jaws.
  • Immediate loaded implants may follow after conventional implants or immediate implants.
  • Immediate loaded implants are normally recommended only for cases with good jawbone conditions.

The type of dental implants selected will be dependent on the patients’ specific needs and general dental condition. A panoramic x-ray and/or CT scan is usually required to evaluate the amount of bone, determine the space available and for a thorough examination to diagnosing the options best suited for each case.

There are a variety of dental implant systems available on the market. The two most popular systems are the Nobel Biocare implant systems & Alpha Bio Implant system. Both companies have had long-standing histories in the field of producing dental implants and have their own ranges of lines.

BENEFITS OF DENTAL IMPLANTS

BETTER S.E.L.F. (SPEAK BETTER, EAT BETTER, LOOK BETTER , FEEL BETTER)

  • Improved self-esteem and increased quality of life
  • No need to trim the adjacent teeth to form the conventional bridge
  • Improves speech as compared to having dentures
  • Improved comfort relative to removable dentures
  • Prevent further loss of teeth and bone support
  • Improved and younger, natural appearance
  • Improved oral health
  • Durability. Implants are very durable and have expected life for a long number of years replacement for lost tooth
  • No slipping, sliding clicking dentures or worrying about your dentures popping out in embarrassing situations

DENTAL IMPLANTS RESTORATION TYPES

SINGLE TOOTH IMPLANT

The single tooth implant restoration consists of three parts. Namely, the implant post which replaces the tooth root, the abutment which will support the crown and the prosthetic crown itself. The crown is either cemented onto the abutment or held in place with a screw.

A single tooth implant with crown is one of the best permanent restorations. And more importantly, it does not require cutting your adjacent healthy teeth for bridging

MULTIPLE TEETH IMPLANT

If multiple teeth are missing in different parts of the mouth, several single tooth implants are good replacement restorations.

If multiple teeth are missing within the same region, several missing teeth can sometimes be replaced with fewer implants because dental implants are stronger than the natural tooth roots. This solution includes having implant fixed bridges done.

ALL TEETH IMPLANT

We, at Dr. PAREKH strongly believe that all our patients deserve fixed teeth so we do not give any option of removable dentures supported on implants

When all teeth are missing or in a condition that all teeth need to be replaced, there is a need for full arch implant reconstructions.

ALL-ON-4 , ALL-ON-6 OR ALL-ON 8

THE FIXED TEETH OPTIONS INCLUDE

  • having screw retained fixed hybrid dentures
  • having screw retained fixed porcelain crowns/bridges.
Dental implants are the most natural-looking and natural-feeling replacement for missing teeth. Unlike many other tooth replacement options, dental implants do not slip or click when talking, laughing or eating, making for greater confidence in social situations. Dental implants are also considered a healthy option because they help to maintain the jawbone, keeping the facial structure intact.

A dental implant is a cylindrical and/or tapered post, usually made of titanium, that serves as a substitute for the tooth root. A connector, known as an abutment, is placed on, or built into, the top of the dental implant, to connect the implant to the replacement tooth or teeth. Finally, a crown, a replacement tooth, is custom made to match your natural teeth, completing the dental implant.

Dental implants are often the best treatment for missing teeth when you use an experienced implant dentist.

When a damaged or decayed tooth is removed, both the visible part of the tooth, called the crown, and the root are lost.

A dental implant is placed in the jawbone so that it can fuse with your natural bone and become a strong and sturdy foundation for replacement teeth. Implants can be used to replace an individual tooth or for an implant-supported bridge or denture containing multiple teeth.

Dental implants are the closest you can get to healthy, natural teeth. They will allow you to confidently eat, smile, laugh, talk, play and enjoy all of your regular activities of everyday l`ife without worrying about your teeth

Your dentist, who should be a credentialed dental implant expert, will place the implant into the jawbone. As you heal, your implant will fuse with your natural jawbone. Once the implant bonds with the jawbone, a small connector is placed on top of the dental implant to connect the implant to the replacement tooth or teeth.
Dental implants are sophisticated dental devices that must be placed carefully to avoid complications or implant failure. For the best outcome potential, it is vitally important that you choose a dental implant expert that has the proper education, training, and competence in implant dentistry.
