Whether you want to replace a single tooth or a complete set, we have the right solution for you.
Titanium metal is basically used for implants due to its tolerance by the body. It is used to support one or more false teeth. A small attachment at the top of the implant emerges through the gum. Crowns, bridges or dentures can then be attached to the implant by screws or clips.
There are two basic types of implants available at our clinic:
Dental implants done in two phases over 2 months which are classified as conventional implants.
Dental implants done in a single day or immediate implants.
Dental Implant restoration Types:
Single Tooth Implant
The single tooth implant restoration consists of three separate parts. Namely, the implant's figure which replaces the tooth root, the abutment which will support the crown and the prosthetic crown. The crown later can be cemented onto the post (abutment) or held in place with a screw.
Multiple Tooth Implants
Implants are stronger than the natural tooth roots, therefore several missing teeth can sometimes be replaced with fewer implants. For example three missing teeth can be supported by two implants or four missing teeth can be supported by three implants and have the bridge restored over those implants.
An Implant Bridge is very much like a conventional full coverage bridge except the support is actually over implants rather than natural teeth. The implants themselves act as man-made roots. A great advantage is that this is self-supporting - unlike a tooth-supported bridge that puts a heavier load on the remaining teeth. Implants are a terrific choice for missing teeth.
