Dental implants provide a strong foundation for permanent or removable prosthesis (replacement teeth) that are made to match your natural teeth. They are manufactured from biologically neutral pure Titanium or titanium alloys, that is accepted by the human body and these implants fuse with the jawbone to form a secure foundation for tooth replacement.
There are two basic types of implants available at our dental clinic. In certain cases, conventional or immediate implants may be followed by immediate loading of crowns and bridges known as immediately loaded implants.
The type of dental implants selected will be dependent on the patients’ specific needs and general dental condition. A panoramic x-ray and/or CT scan is usually required to evaluate the amount of bone, determine the space available and for a thorough examination to diagnosing the options best suited for each case.
There are a variety of dental implant systems available on the market. The two most popular systems are the Nobel Biocare implant systems & Alpha Bio Implant system. Both companies have had long-standing histories in the field of producing dental implants and have their own ranges of lines.
The single tooth implant restoration consists of three parts. Namely, the implant post which replaces the tooth root, the abutment which will support the crown and the prosthetic crown itself. The crown is either cemented onto the abutment or held in place with a screw.
A single tooth implant with crown is one of the best permanent restorations. And more importantly, it does not require cutting your adjacent healthy teeth for bridging
If multiple teeth are missing in different parts of the mouth, several single tooth implants are good replacement restorations.
If multiple teeth are missing within the same region, several missing teeth can sometimes be replaced with fewer implants because dental implants are stronger than the natural tooth roots. This solution includes having implant fixed bridges done.
We, at Dr.Ragi Chandrika strongly believe that all our patients deserve fixed teeth so we do not give any option of removable dentures supported on implants
When all teeth are missing or in a condition that all teeth need to be replaced, there is a need for full arch implant reconstructions.
