Dental Implants

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that act as a lasting base for replaced or fixed teeth. They last longer than dentures, crowns and bridges and are perfect for patients suffering from falling or missing teeth and dental problems. What makes dental implants comfortable and safe is because they function like regular, natural teeth. People feel no problems when eating and there is a requirement to mend them regularly.


Dental implant surgery

The implants are positioned in the lower or upper jaws with a minor surgical procedure. The surgeon prepares the jaw by situating an artificial root into the bone which is followed by adjusting the artificial tooth in its place. The procedures are perfectly safe and do not harm the natural, adjacent teeth. An ice pack is recommended by the surgeon after the procedure which is usually required for 24-48 hours to help reduce swelling and bruising. To avoid any mishaps, start by eating liquid based diet when hungry.

  • Dental Implants fill the gaps left behind by your missing or damaged tooth and prevents gum infection, disease and bacterial problems.
  • The Implants function and appear like regular, natural teeth making them hard to distinguish by other people.
  • It prevents bone loss that is caused by missing teeth. The implants provide stability to the adjacent teeth and maintain the shape and size of the jaw.
