Dental Implants (Replaces Missing Teeth or Dentures)
Implants are the new age method used to restore any missing teeth. It gives artificial teeth a more natural look and it is more secure. Titanium is used in implants, it is fixed in bone in place of the root. Once it is completely integrated with the jaw bone, an abutment is fixed to the implant then a bridge crown or denture is fitted on top of the abutment which replaces any missing teeth or a single tooth.At our hospital our in-house Implantologist performs the Dental implants surgery.
A tooth implant is more advantageous compared to a bridge because it replaces the tooth without hampering any of the adjacent teeth. Bridged teeth are also joined together making flossing impossible. Implants crucially support multiple implant crowns or implant supported bridges especially. Sometimes there might not be sufficient adjoining teeth to support bridges for a long time.
For complete denture weaves, maintenance is a major issue as bone support decreases with age. Ultimately the most excellent fitting dentures tend to feel loose too. Complete upper dentures involve a wide surface over the palate for suction this hampers the taste of food which isn’t fun. On the other hand, Implant supported dentures are securely fixed in and do not need the palate to be covered.
Dental implants are incorporated with other treatments such as crowns, bridges and veneers as part of full smile makeovers or full mouth reconstructions following the same processes of smile design.
