Have you lost your teeth? Don’t worry you can get your permanent teeth back via dental implants at Ponsonby dental boutique.
Dental implants are restorations that are closest to your natural teeth.
Implants are like teeth roots placed in your jaws. They look like screws or cylinders and are suitable for both lower and upper jaws. They attach/ integrate well with your jawbone and gums and become a suitable base for artificial teeth.
Dental implants are in use for more than 40 years, and are suitable for all ages. Implants are made of biocompatible/ suit your body materials such as Titanium.
Procedure – dental implants
- We conduct a thorough oral examination. We assess the condition of all your teeth and oral tissues. It keeps you updated on what you need to do for keeping up with the optimal oral health.
- We surgically place the implant in your jawbone. We ensure the top of the implant is slightly above your jawbone.
- We prescribe analgesics/ pain-reliever medicines.
- Have soft, cold foods or warm soup to facilitate quicker healing.
- We let the gum tissue grow over the implant and let it sit for three to six months, to enable osseointegration.
Osseointegration is a process wherein your jawbone grows over the implant. Thus, your implant integrates well with your bone.
- Post osseointegration,
We uncover the implant and attach an extension called a post. We let the gum tissue heal around the post.
- Post healing, it acts as a foundation to place the crown. At Ponsonby dental boutique, we choose a high-quality crown that matches very well with your other teeth, so you can have your smile and chewing efficiency back.
Till you heal, we give you a temporary replacement for your lost teeth, to keep up with your daily activities.
Advantages of dental implants
Once done, implants are forever and stay in your mouth. They are not like dentures that you need to remove at night and soak in liquid to wear again the next morning.
Saves your adjacent teeth
With implants, you can save your adjacent teeth from trimming. If you have missing teeth, a bridge is one of the options.
*A bridge is a dental prosthesis that replaces your missing teeth by taking the support of adjacent teeth. For which, we need to trim the adjacent teeth to hold the bridge firmly.
With one implant, we can replace many of your teeth. Dental implants can help you with partial as well as full/ complete dentures.
Dental implants blend well with your teeth. No one will notice you have an implant. Your smile can be as natural-looking as you want it to be.
Optimal chewing efficiency
With implants, you can enjoy your favorite foods, while dentures may not allow that.
Improves your confidence levels
You can speak well and look younger with implants.
Better oral health
When you have missing teeth, it causes bone loss. The adjacent and opposing teeth also start drifting in the space causing imbalance. Dental implants being permanent solutions to your missing teeth, prevent such issues forever.
Factors to consider for dental implants
If you are healthy with healthy sugar levels, healthy gum tissue, and adequate bone support for the implant, dental implants are suitable for you.
In case you do not have enough bone support, bone graft is an option to facilitate dental implants.
Tobacco users are not ideal candidates for implants as tobacco use delays healing.
To ensure your implants last forever
Maintain a thorough oral hygiene. Brush twice a day, floss every day, and have a healthy diet.
Do not use tobacco in any form.
