Implantology & oral surgery
Implantology refers to the discipline that focuses on dental implants as a routine form of tooth replacement, as opposed to dentures (in particular) or bridges.
Herein, a titanium base is “implanted” into the bone, on to which an artificial tooth (or teeth, as required) is then placed, to ultimately replicate the instance of a real tooth or set of teeth.
The implication in this case is essentially to do away with all the discomfort and readjustment of life which typically accompanies the usage of dentures; with implants in place, there is really no cause for concern since the artificial teeth obtained are almost identical to the real or natural teeth which were prevalent, prior to tooth loss.
Dental implant is the only tooth replacement procedure that imitates nature: chewing forces are transferred to the bone ( where as using a denture the forces will be applied on the gum and using a bridge, on the adjacent teeth – abutments ).
Dental implants are small metal screws that are inserted below the gum line, into the actual jawbone itself. The screw is made of titanium, a metal used in surgery because the human body does not reject it like it does other forms of steel. These artificial tooth-roots are placed into the jawbone and are subsequently restored with beautiful and natural crown work or bridgework.Dental implants offer a permanent solution for your missing teeth.
Our Dentists offer simple, reliable and long-lasting results for patients of any age who are missing teeth or experiencing the frustrations of loose, decayed and broken teeth. Our dentist can ask you to have an X-ray or a CT scan done so that they can check the thickness of your jawbone and the position of other structures in your mouth. Dental implant surgery is usually done under local anaesthesia.
If you have irreparably damaged or missing teeth due to an accident, injury or dental disease, these can be replaced by dental implants.
There are different kind of implants:
- Single tooth Implant
- Implant Retained Bridge
- Full Arch Restoration
