dental-crown-implantDental implants is one of the best substitutes to your natural teeth. It offer you a permanent solution for replacing one or more teeth as well as supporting and securing a dental crown, dental bridge or dentures. 

Dental implant consist of 3 main parts:

  • Implant Fixture (a.ka.) the Screw 
  • Titanium Abutment 
  • Dental Crown

Many of our patients will tell you that dental implants have changed not only their smiles, their overall appearances but also their lives.

Benefits of a Dental Implant

  • Dental implants are comfortable (functional) and more natural looking (aesthetic) as compared to dentures and bridges. 
  • Tooth discolouration or tooth extraction leaves a gap that can affect your smile and appearance. Dental implants restorations will help to increase your self-esteem.
  • Eat and chew again without pain or irritation. Foods that were forbidden are now back in the diet.
  • Dental implants can improve your taste of food. Unlike dentures, with less plastic covering the roof of your mouth, you can enjoy natural flavors and sensation again.
  • Dental implants increase the retention and stability of your surrounding natural teeth.
  • Unlike dentures, dental implants are retained firmly to your jaw, allowing you to speak without dentures popping out of your mouth.
  • Dental implants reinforce and maintain the structural integrity of your jaw and support your facial tissues. They also minimize or eliminate the loss of bone tissue, which causes “shrinkage” or cosmetic changes to the face.

Procedures of Dental Implant

The list below shows an overview of the process of getting a dental implant and usually, the preparation of a dental implant takes longer than the implant procedure itself: 

1. Initial Consultation

During the consultation, a dentist will access your oral health by taking an X-Ray of your mouth and evaluate your eligibility of having dental implant.

If you're eligble for dental implant and have good oral health, you can schedule a second appointment for procedure. However, if you have periodontal disease, the dentist will have to treat the problems before doing the dental implant. 

2. Dental Implant and Healing Procedure

The dentist will have make a small incision on your gum to place the implant in your tooth socket.

After the dental implantation, you are required to let it heal for about 3 months and proceed with the second part of the dental implant procedure. The dentist will then place a healing abutment to induce the healing of the surrounding gum tissue. After a few weeks, it will be remove and replaced with an abutment which is necessary to support the dental crown.

3. Dental Crown   

After the dental implant is done, the dentist will take a dental crown impression and sent to the lab for manufacturing. After the dental crown is manufactured, the dentist will issue the crown on your dental implant. You can now walk out of our clinic and smile confidently!
