Dental Implants

Dental Implant Procedure

 Dental implants are a  great way to replace missing teeth and also provide a fixed solution to having removable partial or complete dentures.  Implants provide  excellent support and stability for these dental appliances.
Dental implants are artificial roots and teeth  (usually titanium) that are surgically placed into the upper or lower  jaw bone by a dentist or Periodontist - a specialist of the gums and  supporting bone. The teeth attached to implants are very natural  looking and often enhance or restore a patient’s smile. Dental implants are strong and durable and will  last many years.  On occasion, they will have to be re-tightened or  replaced due to normal wear. 

Implant Denture

 

 An implant-supported denture is a type of overdenture that is  supported by and attached to implants. A regular denture rests on the  gums, and is not supported by implants. 

An implant-supported denture is used when a person doesn't have  any teeth in the jaw, but has enough bone in the jaw to support  implants. An implant-supported denture has special attachments that snap  onto attachments on the implants. 

 Implant-supported dentures usually are made for the lower jaw  because regular dentures tend to be less stable there. Usually, a  regular denture made to fit an upper jaw is quite stable on its own and  doesn't need the extra support offered by implants. However, you can  receive an implant-supported denture in either the upper or lower jaw.  

Implant Crown & Bridges

  

A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the  entire tooth surface, restoring it to its original shape and size.  A  crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored  with fillings or other types of restorations.

Although there are several types of crowns,  porcelain (tooth colored crown) are the most popular.  They are highly  durable and will last many years, but like most dental restorations,  they may eventually need to be replaced.  Porcelain crowns are made to  match the shape, size, and color of your teeth, giving you a  long-lasting, beautiful smile.

Implants Crown are placed on the implant attachment called abutment.
