Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of titanium that are surgically placed into the jawbone to support replacement teeth or dental bridges. They provide a strong foundation for fixed or removable teeth that are designed to match your natural teeth.
Good candidates for dental implants are individuals who have good oral health, sufficient jawbone density, and healthy gums. It is essential to have a strong jawbone to support the implant. People with certain health conditions like uncontrolled diabetes or those who smoke heavily may not be ideal candidates.
During the consultation, the dentist will assess your oral health, examine your jawbone, and discuss your medical history. If you are deemed suitable for implants, the treatment will involve several stages, including the surgical placement of the implant, a healing period, and finally, the attachment of the replacement tooth or dental prosthesis.
The cost of dental implants can vary depending on various factors, including the number of implants needed, the complexity of the case, the location of the dental clinic, and any additional procedures required (e.g., bone grafting).
The success rate of dental implants is quite high, typically ranging from 95% to 98%. However, individual factors like oral health, jawbone density, and adherence to aftercare instructions can influence the success rate.
All-on-4 is a specific dental implant technique that allows a full arch of teeth (either upper or lower) to be supported by just four dental implants. It is an efficient and cost-effective solution for those who need extensive teeth replacement.
Dental implants are not removable like dentures; they are fixed into your jawbone and function like natural teeth.
Dental implants can be used to stabilize and support full or partial dentures, making them more secure and comfortable for the wearer. This is achieved by attaching the dentures to the implants using special connectors.
With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last a lifetime. They are designed to be a long-term solution for tooth replacement.
Before dental implant surgery, it is advisable to avoid smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, and certain medications that could interfere with the healing process. Your dentist will provide specific instructions based on your medical history.
