When you lose a tooth, you often lose a lot more - your natural smile, your ability to chew food effectively and in many cases, your confidence.
Dental implants look, feel and function like natural teeth. A dental implant is an artificial tooth that will provide the support a tooth crown needs to withstand the pressures of chewing. With modern dental technology, the shape and colour of an implant-supported crown can be custom-made to look just like your natural teeth.
Benefits of Dental Implants:
A new computerised planning process now makes it possible to fit an implant crown or a whole bridge in one hour.
The success of an implant is achieved when the fixture and the bone form a chemical and mechanical union. This term is called " osseointegration". Implant surgery is usually carried out under local anaesthetic, but can sometimes be done with oral or intravenous sedation.
The benefits of implants are their permanency and their ability to hold the bone volume. Of course the disadvantages are that one cannot give a guarantee of 100% success and in the conventional method would take 4-6 months to complete treatment.
