Dental implants make it possible to replace a single missing tooth without compromising adjacent natural teeth.
Multiple teeth also can be replaced without grinding down the adjacent tooth.
If all the teeth are missing, an implant-supported full bridge or full denture can replace them.
his is the latest advancement in Implant dentistry wherein full mouth rehabilitation is done with just 4 implants in each arch unlike 6 to 8 implants that are needed conventionally.
If you have a single missing tooth dental implant comes out to be the best option.It replaces the tooth without affecting the adjacent teeth.
Step 1: Placement of Dental Implant in the edentulous region The Dental Implant is left for about 3 to 6 months & allowed to heal and bond to the bone. Meanwhile a temporary crown can be given to fill the gap of the missing tooth.
Step 2: During the second stage, a healing cap is placed to facilitate the gum to grow & heal around the Implant. The healing cap is left in place for a period of 1 to 2 weeks. Few single piece implants do not need a healing cap.
Step 3: Then a permanent crown is fabricated and either cemented or screwed over a metal post called as Abutment. Finally you will restore your smile & function which enhances your smile & function.
