Implant Restoration

implants pictureImplant restoration is the most advanced therapy available in dentistry today. It is by far the most effective and long-lasting treatment choice to replace missing teeth. The reason a lot of people choose implants is that they generally look, feel and act more like a natural tooth than any other option. Implant restoration can offer you important advantages compared to other treatment options, including improved health and appearance. Our patients regularly comment on how this has led to greater self-confidence and a better quality of life. It is significantly superior to bridges and dentures in quality, comfort and longevity. The procedure of inserting an implant involves attaching an artificial tooth (crown) to an implant anchored in the jawbone. The implant itself is a small titanium post which acts like the root of a normal tooth. Once the implant is placed, your own natural bone and gum grow around the implant, holding it firmly in place. This helps to strengthen the implant and make it more durable over time. implantsThere are generally three appointments involved in this procedure. The first is the placement of the implant. Healing is very quick, but integration needs time. The second phase is performed after a 3-6 month period of implant integration within the bone. Once it is determined that the implant is fully integrated and secure in the bone, then we would proceed with the second appointment which involves the taking of a master impression of the implant. From this impression, the laboratory fabricates a custom-made crown. The third appointment is the final fixation of the crown onto the implant. This completes the third and final phase of the restorative period. All of these are short appointments. Once the implant is placed, all subsequent appointments do not require any anaesthesia. Implant therapy has thus become a painless and exceptionally reliable treatment for replacing missing teeth.
