Implants Procedure

Is a secure and confident smile what you are looking for?

Do you suffer from damaged or missing teeth? Have you started considering what is the best solution for you?

A dental implant is a small titanium screw that acts as an artificial tooth root and provides a stable foundation for the final crown placement.

Also, an implant preserves healthy adjacent teeth by eliminating the need to grind them down to support a bridge. Dental implants look, feel and function just like natural teeth and enable you to eat, speak and smile with confidence!

Do you suffer from the discomfort of a missing tooth?

Oftentimes, missing a tooth in the visible aesthetic area can impact a person’s confidence while speaking and smiling. Although missing a more hidden tooth presents little aesthetic concern, it can have a negative effect on your chewing ability and other adjacent teeth, such as to cause them to shift position and create new places for plaque and tartar to build up.

Stage 1

implants_procedure_stage1

A thorough examination:

  • The first step of dental implant therapy is a discussion with your dentist, followed by a thorough dental examination.
  • The jaw is X-rayed to check the condition of the dental implant.
  • An impression is made of the jaw and existing teeth, forming an important platform for the treatment planning.

Stage 2

Inserting the dental implant:

There are two options for dental implant placement, depending on your clinical situation.

  • In a one-step procedure, the dental implant is placed and then a temporary abutment is attached.
  • In a two-step procedure, the dental implant is inserted and then covered by the gum, and left to heal. The abutment is attached at a later date.

In both cases, a temporary crown is put in place followed by a maximum healing period of three months for the lower jaw, and six months for the upper jaw.

In some cases, the dental implant can be loaded immediately. However, this depends on your bone condition.

Stage 3

Attaching the abutment:

  • In a one-step treatment, the temporary abutments are replaced by a permanent one after the dental implants have bonded with the bone tissue.
  • The second part of a two-step procedure involves making a minor incision to open the gum and put the abutments in place. When the abutments are in place, a new impression is made.

Stage 4

implants_procedure_stage4

Fitting and re-examination:

  • When the bridge is ready, your dentist simply attaches it to the dental implant.
  • This is usually followed by a few follow-up visits to check functionality and aesthetics.
  • That’s all there is to it, and it is virtually impossible to see the difference between the existing teeth and the new tooth.

SEVERAL TEETH REPLACEMENT

Do you suffer from the physical discomfort associated with missing teeth?

  • Do you have difficulties eating or speaking clearly due to the loss of these teeth?
  • If so, implant-supported bridges may be the solution for you.
  • Dental implants act as replacement tooth roots, providing a stable foundation for replacement teeth that function just like natural teeth so you can eat, speak and smile with confidence.

ALL TEETH REPLACEMENT

Do you suffer from missing all of your teeth?

  • Are you tired of loose-fitting dentures that require constant attention and limit you from eating and speaking with confidence?
  • If so, implant-supported full dentures may be the solution for you.
  • Because conventional dentures do not help to maintain the bone in the jaw, the bone deteriorates over time, leading to ill-fitting dentures and denture sores.
  • Dental implants provide a stable foundation for an overdenture or bridge to stay securely and comfortably in place, restoring the natural chewing capacity. By stimulation the jawbone, implants help to maintain facial structures thus ensuring an aesthetic result over time that allows you to eat, speak and smile with a confidence!
