Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or other reasons. A dental implant is a titanium post that is inserted into your jaw to replace a missing tooth. It will serve as an artificial tooth root to which a crown can be attached. Implants can also be the used as anchors for bridges, removable partials or complete dentures. CAT SCAN technology allows your dentist to place an implant in less than 30 minutes without having to cut your gums or leave stitches. The procedure is very predictable and patients rarely have discomfort after their appointment.A dental implant provides several advantages over other tooth replacement options. In addition to looking and functioning like a natural tooth, you can floss it normally since the tooth is not attached to the teeth on neither side. If a fixed bridge is done instead, removal of healthy enamel may be required. In the long term, implants are esthetic, comfortable and cost effective. For Implant Supported Dentures, Click Here
IMPLANT SUPPORTED DENTURESToo many people who have conventional dentures will not wear them because they don't stay in place. Dental implants offer a way to stabilize dentures. Denture wearers turn to denture adhesives, but adhesives are messy and need regular application. In addition, dentures need to be adjusted and "relined" every two to four years. This happens in an attempt to fill in the space of the bone that continues to be lost. When teeth are missing, the bone of the jaw disappears. Only the presence of a tooth or an implant will stop this process. After implants are inserted into the jaw, the existing denture is modified to sit comfortably over the implants. The denture will then snap onto the implants, locking them into place.The benefits of eating what you want, smiling with confidence as well as the assurance you get from a stable denture, are invaluable.
