Dental Implants

Dental implants provided at our Miraza Ismail Road practice can offer a permanent alternative to some of the difficulties of dentures. Dentures, especially on the lower jaw, are prone to slipping and sliding, which can make chewing and speaking a difficult and potentially embarrassing chore. Because they utilise titanium anchors that are fused with the jawbone (replicating the natural root structure of a tooth), dental implants are more secure and often more comfortable than removable dentures while looking and feeling like real teeth.

Placement of Dental Implants

Dental implants are placed in our Miraza Ismail Road practice by surgically implanting titanium anchors into the jawbone. These anchors function like natural tooth roots. After sufficient time has passed to allow the anchors to bond and fuse with the surrounding bone and gum tissue, studs are secured to the anchors. Natural-looking crowns can then be attached to the studs.

In many cases, patients desiring dental implants must first visit an oral surgeon to have the titanium anchors inserted. At our dental clinic, we have our own team of surgery and implant placement professionals. From start to finish, we can provide the full range of treatment for your new dental implants in our Clinic.

All implants are not the same!

Dental implants have the same goal - to provide solutions for missing teeth and in the process to improve a person's quality of life. However, the quality (and the end-result) of all dental implants are not the same, and the differences will be influenced by a number of factors.

One of the main factors that affect the quality of dental implants is the cost involved. In the world of dental implants, and particularly with us the costs involved will reflect on the high-quality implants one can look forward to enjoying in the near future.

A variety of price ranges can be seen when looking at the various dental implant services offered. Getting to know more about the factors that affect the cost will be beneficial in deciding which offer to choose, after looking at the numerous offers available.

Cost is determined by:

The expertise of the dental surgeon on a specific patient's case.

The type of dental implant to be used.

The technology and equipment used.

The skill of the dental technician to hand craft a bespoke natural-looking final crown or denture.

Careful consideration should be made when deciding on which implant system to go for. As the implants are titanium screws placed directly into the jawbone, only the best in terms of dental implant quality, dental surgeon's expertise, and technology should go into the whole process of dental implants placement. The procedure will involve not only a person's tooth (or teeth), but the jaw bone, and the whole face as well so there should be very little to no compromise in terms of the quality of materials used, as well as the whole treatment planning stage.

Choosing a dental implant system is a crucial decision, as it can have a remarkable impact on one's life for years to come. We offer Nobel Biocare, ADIN, Ankylos, Osstem implants.

What is a dental implant procedure like?

This procedure is a team effort between you, your dentist and your prosthodontist. Your prosthodontist and 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.

Replacing a Single Tooth : If you are missing a single tooth, one implant and a crown can replace it.

Replacing Several Teeth : If you are missing several teeth, implant-supported bridges can replace them.

Replacing All of Your Teeth : If you are missing all of your teeth, an implant-supported full bridge or full denture can replace them.

Sinus Augmentation : A key to implant success is the quantity and quality of the bone where the implant is to be placed. The upper back jaw has traditionally been one of the most difficult areas to successfully place dental implants due to insufficient bone quantity and quality and the close proximity to the sinus. Sinus augmentation can help correct this problem by raising the sinus floor and developing bone for the placement of dental implants.

Ridge Modification : Deformities in the upper or lower jaw can leave you with inadequate bone in which to place dental implants. To correct the problem, the gum is lifted away from the ridge to expose the bony defect. The defect is then filled with bone or bone substitute to build up the ridge. Ridge modification has been shown to greatly improve appearance and increase your chances for successful implants that can last for years to come.

What can i expect after receiving a dental implant?

As you know, your own teeth require conscientious at-home oral care and regular dental visits. Dental implants are like your own teeth and will require the same care. In order to keep your implant clean and plaque-free, brushing and flossing still apply!

After treatment, your periodontist will work closely with you and your dentist to develop the best care plan for you. Periodic follow-up visits will be scheduled to monitor your implant, teeth and gums to make sure they are healthy.
