DENTAL IMPLANTS

Dental implants are an effective treatment for those suffering from missing teeth or a reduced capacity to bite, chew or speak.

They are basically a whole, or part of, an artificial tooth, which is connected to the jawbone. During the first stage of the procedure, an artificial titanium root is surgically connected to the jawbone under the gum tissue. Once the implant is fully healed and attached to the gum, a dental crown is placed onto the titanium. This creates the appearance of the natural tooth and restores its function. Dental implants have the ability to:

  • Improve appearance
  • Speech improvement
  • Comfort
  • Facilitate ability to chew
  • Prevent further teeth deterioration
It is undeniable that when dental implant procedures are performed correctly and with the appropriate materials, they are costly. However, we strongly encourage those who are considering dental implants not to let their cost turn them towards getting this procedure in other countries, where the price is lower. Not only is this potentially dangerous, but it could lead to further complications with your teeth, costing more money in the long run.

    Dental Implant Process

    The amount of time it takes to complete the implant process and crown depends on the type of implant and whether or not you will need to undergo a bone graft. The best case scenario, you may have completed all your treatment within six months. However, this can take a lot longer, sometimes up to 12 months or every longer if your jawbone needs to be strengthened to support the implant.

    Usually, unless you are undergoing dental surgery for mini implants, you will require two procedures with a gap of 3-6 months allowing the gum time to absorb the implants and heal. The second stage of the dental implants requires exposing the titanium screw, and the placement of a cap which is attached to the top of the implant. This enables the gum to surround the implant to heal. Within several weeks, the cap will be replaced with a device called an abutment which attaches the implant to the crown.
