What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are substitutes for the roots of missing teeth.

They act as an anchor for a replacement tooth or crown or a set of replacement teeth.  Dental implants are so natural-looking and feeling, you may forget you ever lost a tooth.   You know that your confidence about your teeth affects how you feel about yourself, both personally and professionally.

Perhaps you hide your smile because of spaces from missing teeth. Maybe your dentures don’t feel secure. Perhaps you have difficulty chewing. 

If you are missing one or more teeth and would like to smile, speak and eat again with comfort and confidence, there is good news! Dental implants are teeth that can look and feel just like your own!

Under proper conditions, and diligent patient maintenance, implants can last a lifetime. Long-term studies continue to show improving success rates for implants.

Am I a candidate for implants?

Implant patients are of all ages and implants may be the right choice for anyone missing one or more teeth due to injury, disease or decay. They are especially practical for patients who can no longer wear removable dentures. Your dentist can determine if you are a candidate for dental implants after a careful evaluation of your dental and medical history.The main condition is to have the bone in good condition. Some contraindications should be noted: patients with heart disease, renal failure, smoking, hypertension, and uncontrolled diabetes.

Do I have enough bone?

It is important for a patient to have enough bone to support the implant. If you do not have enough bone, there are many safe and effective ways to correct bone deficiency. Following tooth extraction the extraction site undergoes bone resorption. 30%-50% of bone can be resorped within the first 6 months of extraction depending on patients age. It is important that implants are placed during this period before further loss of bone. Failure to do this will require extra surgical procedures to increase volume of bone available for implant placement.

Steps of Procedure


About the treatment

This procedure is a team effort between you and your dentist. Your dentist will consult with you to determine where and how your implant should be placed. Depending on your specific condition and the type of implant chosen, your dentist will create a treatment plan tailored to meet your needs.

Problem

Missing or Failing Tooth

– Due to infection, failed root filling, trauma or root fracture

– Crown keeps falling out or not enough tooth left to attach a new crown

– Tooth failed to develop

Solution

Implant with single tooth

– Ideal long term solution that looks, feels and functions just like natural teeth

– Option for instant implant and instant tooth

– Protects adjacent teeth and underlying bone helping maintain lip and cheek support

– Very high success rate (over 99%) when compared to alternative treatments

Alternatives

Leave a gap or wear a denture

– Unsightly and embarrassing

– May impair eating and speech

– Bone and gum in the gap will shrink

– The position of adjacent and opposing teeth will distort over time

Bridge from other teeth

– Healthy teeth need to be drilled to attach the bridge, shortening their lifespan making future solutions more complex and costly

– Bone supporting the gum beneath a bridge will shrink due to lack of use leaving a gap

– Extra stress on supporting teeth during chewing

Advantages of Implants

Advantages of Dental Implants over Dentures or a Bridge

Aesthetic

Aesthetic Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth! Since dental implants integrate into the structure of your bone, they prevent the bone loss and gum recession that often accompany bridgework and dentures.

Tooth Saving

Tooth-saving Dental implants don’t sacrifice the quality of your adjacent teeth like a bridge does because neighbouring teeth are not altered to support the implant. More of your own teeth are left untouched, a significant long-term benefit to your oral health!

“Your teeth were designed to last a lifetime, but sometimes they don’t!  Replacing missing teeth is important to your general health and to the health of your other teeth. Not only do you lose chewing ability when a tooth is lost, but unreplaced teeth can cause other teeth to be lost, tipped or crowded and create subsequent problems. Also, there are the obvious problems of poor appearance and loss of self-esteem caused by one or more missing teeth”

Receptionists, the dental nurses and the dentists themselves – could not be more helpful, pleasant and – most importantly, of course – highly qualified and efficient. A long process of bone replacement, tooth removal, denture and, finally, implants was carried out with care and concern and I am thrilled with the final result.

The results are amazing and the best decision I have ever made. I am now confident can eat foods that I had long since forgotten - even seedy bread! and not a worry ever again that they might pop out! I cannot recommend Dr Patel and his team highly enough as you will see if you put yourself under his excellent care.

I arrived at Brickfields in poor shape after a lifetime of teeth problems and associated toothaches. After considerable essential work, I have now gone 10 years with no concerns and no toothaches. Quite frankly, going to Brickfield Dental Care is one of the best things I’ve done. Just to add to it, TC is an incredibly gentle dentist – you never even feel the needle! There really aren’t enough superlatives to express my high opinion and gratitude for the level of oral care provided by TC and his team…. and all in a modern, clean and friendly environment. Ten out of ten and a big thank you!
