Dental Implant

 

 

DENTAL IMPLANTs can be used to support an individual crown, bridge, or dentures.

Dental Implant is a titanium device similar to the shape of the root of our teeth used in dentistry to support restorations that resemble a tooth. The dental implants are placed within the bone. After a period of time the bone of the jaw accepts and osseointegrates with the titanium implant. Dental Implants can be used to support a number of dental prosthesis, including crowns, implant supported bridges or dentures.

IMPLANT SUPPORTED BRIDGE:

Implant supported Bridge is a ceramic bridge supported by one or more implants replacing 3 or more teeth. It is similar to a regular fixed dental bridge, but supported by implants rather than natural teeth. 

Implant supported bridge is recommended:

When  more than 1 tooth is missing

Concern that there may be too much pressure on individual implants that are not connected to each other (clenchers or grinders) 

Don’t want to affect  any natural teeth 

 

Advantages:

Replace teeth without support or affecting adjacent natural teeth

Your bone is better preserved with dental implants as it acts to replace your roots and thus less resorption

Superior esthetics, functionality and comfortability

Longer longevity, due to minimal bone resorption

IMPLANT SUPPORTED DENTURES:

Implant supported dentures are dentures that rest over the gums supported by dental implants, fitting more firmly and thus giving you more confidence. They don’t rest directly on the gums like conventional dentures. The implant supported denture snaps into place over the implants already placed in the jaw and can be removed at night for cleaning. The implant supported dentures offer tremendous stability over conventional dentures.  

Advantages of Implant Supported Dentures:

More retentive than conventional dentures

More comfortable as it does not cover the roof of your mouth, thus feels more natural

Chewing is easier, with no flip flopping of the denture

No need for adhesives to secure the denture in place

 

Disadvantages of Implant Supported Dentures:

The middle piece connecting the implant to the denture wears over time and needs to be replaced every 6-12 months.

Smoking affects the success rate of the implant. Smokers are usually not good candidates for dental implants.
