Tooth loss affects your oral and overall health in multiple ways. The bone at the site of the lost tooth can slowly start to deteriorate, and other nearby teeth may shift positions to slowly fill up the gap created at the site, causing bite problems and misalignment. Therefore, when you lose one or more teeth, it is important to consider a replacement option that allows you to look, feel and eat with ease. Dental implants are the closest to natural teeth in terms of look, function and stability. They have been successfully used by dentists for over 40 years to offer a permanent solution to the problems caused by missing teeth.
An implant is a screw or abutment made using titanium which acts as a root for a replacement tooth. Implants are surgically attached to the jawbone, where they fuse and form a base for prosthetic devices such as crowns. The result is a fixed, tooth-like structure that is permanent and stable.
Advantages of dental implants:
- Easy to care for
- Look and feel like natural teeth
- Safe for nearby natural teeth in the mouth
- The longest-lasting tooth replacements
- Help in preventing jawbone loss
These are standard implants which are directly placed into the jawbone. Once the surrounding gum tissue has healed, one more surgery is required to connect a post to the original implant. Finally, a prosthetic tooth (or teeth) is attached to the post to complete the procedure.
The All-on-4 treatment concept replaces your missing teeth with a full dental bridge which is supported by four implants. The implants are strategically placed at a tilted angle, ensuring full support and stable anchorage for the bridge.
