Smile with Confidence! Breathe Easy, Smile Wide

Feeling self-conscious about your missing teeth or wobbly dentures?

You’re not alone. Over 100 million adults are missing at least one tooth.
Bring back your natural smile and your self-confidence with functional and aesthetic dental implants. An ideal alternative to bridges, a dental implant can actually replace teeth without compromising the quality of bordering teeth. Since they attach directly to the jawbone, an implant looks and feels like real teeth, and they prevent bone loss and gum recession at the same time. Don’t let missing teeth affect how you chew, smile or live your life. Bring back that ear-to-ear grin with an effective, permanent dental implant.

What is a Dental Implant?

A Dental implant is an artificial tooth root, or titanium fitting, that is surgically secured to the jawbone. The light and durable metal implant acts as an anchor for a false tooth or set of false teeth. Since the implant fuses to the bone, the attached artificial tooth, which is matched to the exact color of your natural teeth, looks and feels completely authentic. There are two general types of dental implants: endosteal and subperiosteal. An endosteal implant is the most common variety and anchor directly into the jaw bone, in either “root” or “plate” form, depending on the size of your jaw. Subperiosteal implants, which are available to patients who cannot wear conventional dentures or who have minimal bone height, are custom on-the-bone anchors that sit under the gums.

Is an Implant Right For Me?

implant

A secure, long-term smile solution, implants are ideal for people of all ages who have lost teeth due to injury, periodontal disease or other causes. A Dental implant can even replace a full set of missing teeth, certain types of bridges, and removable partial dentures.
The best implant candidates are those with healthy gums, good general oral health, a strong commitment to oral hygiene, and enough bone near the missing teeth for the implants to attach securely to the jaw. Even if you aren’t an ideal candidate, there are various procedures including bone grafting and sinus augmentation that can help prepare your mouth to accept implants.

Single Tooth Replacement

Tooth Replacement

Benefits of an all-ceramic crown implant

When both the tooth and root are damaged, the best permanent replacement is a dental implant in conjunction with a ceramic crown. This solution both looks and functions just like a natural tooth.
In this case, a so-called one-piece implant is used. This means that all components are installed as a single unit, resulting in immediately full functioning teeth, shorter treatment time and minimized pain.
Immediately functioning teeth
Excellent esthetic result
Life long, stable solution

Treatment

This procedure normally includes four visits to the dentist. You should expect to be able to work the day after having the implant installed.
Course Of Treatment
Installing the New Tooth Step by Step
The course of treatment described here is one of several options available. Consult your dentist to find out what the best solution is for you, given your specific condition.

implant2

1: Before the procedure

The dentist makes a first examination and takes one or more x-rays of the area to prepare for the procedure.

2: Installing the implant

The implant is installed. At this time, a temporary tooth is provided that allows you eat and function like normal almost immediately.  The implant will need a few months to integrate with the jawbone before the next step is taken.
implant_5

3: Attaching the new crown

The final step is the placement of the permanent ceramic tooth. The new tooth is installed for life. No additional treatment is needed.

4: End result

You should expect the new tooth to fit and function just like a natural tooth. Do your usual dental hygiene to keep the tooth and gum around it clean.
Alternatives To An All-Ceramic Crown On Implant
implant_6

Tooth-supported fixed bridge

A traditional bridge involves grinding down adjacent teeth to support the bridge. It is a stable solution with good aesthetics and function that is fairly easy to install. However, this alternative has two main disadvantages: continuous bone resorbtion in the edentulous area, and sacrificing healthy teeth on behalf of the bridge.
implant_7

Removable partial denture

This is not a permanent alternative to a lost tooth. It is unstable and loosely attached, which affects both function and comfort. A removable partial denture is made of plastic – a material that can’t create the same esthetic result as a ceramic crown. The benefits are few but do exist: adjacent teeth aren’t affected. It is easily and quickly installed and relatively cheap.
implant_8

Resin-bonded bridge

This alternative has some clear advantages: it is quickly installed, functions well and, since it is made of ceramic, it gives a high esthetic result. Moreover, natural healthy teeth aren’t affected. But it is not very permanent. The resin-bonded bridge will eventually come off – probably after just a couple of years – and will then have to be reinstalled.

Multiple Tooth Replacement

Benefits with fixed bridge on implants:
implant_9

In this case, when replacing three teeth in the far back of the mouth, a fixed bridge anchored to dental implants is the only fixed alternative. Traditional dentures can’t offer the same stability or function.
Having dental implants replacing your lost back teeth will give you new, unparalleled strength and stability that allows you to eat what you want. It will also preserve your jawbone and facial appearance.
The only fixed alternative in this situation.
A stable, secure solution that lets you eat what you want
Preserves your facial appearance and prevents bone loss

Treatment:

After the initial examination, you can expect 4-5 additional visits until the final fixed bridge is permanently attached. It is normal to experience some minor bruising and swelling in the gum and soft tissue afterwards. Any discomfort is usually treated with an ordinary painkiller. You should expect to be able to work the next day.

FIXED BRIDGE – STEP-BY-STEP
The course of treatment described here is one of several options available. Consult your dentist to find out what the best solution is for you, given your specific condition.
implant_10
implant_11

1: Before the procedure
Three teeth at back end of the mouth are missing. The only real replacement alternative is installing a fixed bridge. The bridge contains all teeth in one piece and is anchored on dental implants.
2: Installing the implant
First, the implants are installed. This is normally done in a single session. A temporary bridge may be placed at the same time, making it possible for you to function like normal almost immediately after leaving the dentist.
implant_12

3: Attaching the bridge
The implants need to integrate with the jawbone before the permanent bridge is attached. This is normally done 1-2 months after the implant installation. The time will vary, depending on the teeth affected and the aesthetical demands.
4: End result
The new bridge will handle all the pressure that your strong, natural back teeth did. You will have a stable and secure solution that allows you to eat what you want.

Alternatives To Fixed Bridge

implant_13

Removable partial denture

This alternative is often perceived as uncomfortable and a bit complicated to use. Function can’t be compared to that of a bridge. This denture is made of plastic and metal, which affects its look. It is quite expensive to fabricate due to its many parts. However, the installation process is simple, and natural teeth are spared.

Full Arch Replacement

Benefits of a fixed bridge on implants
implant_14

When all teeth are missing or in such condition that they need to be replaced, a fixed bridge anchored to dental implants is the best permanent solution
Before dental implants, there were no fixed solution available for people who lost all their teeth. Today, it is possible to replace a full jaw with dental implants and a fixed bridge that results in a permanent, stable and high esthetic solution.
Lets you eat and function like having natural teeth
A solid, stable solution that will serve you for life
Preserves your facial appearance and prevents bone loss

Treatment:

The treatment procedure and number of visits is largely dependent on the specific conditions. But all in all, 8-10 visits should be enough to have a fixed bridge installed. Most patients report that they were much more comfortable following the procedure than they had anticipated.

implant_15

1: Before the procedure
The dentist determines what needs to be done and prepares both himself and the patient for the coming treatment procedure.
2: Installing the implants
The first step is installing dental implants to replace the lost tooth roots. In this case, five implants are used. Temporary teeth are attached that enable you to eat and function like normal while waiting for the permanent bridge to be installed.
implant_16

3: Attaching the bridge
The final bridge is securely installed on top of the implants. With a full jaw replacement like this, it normally takes 2-3 visits to have the bridge completely attached.
4: End result
Your new teeth should be hard to tell from natural – both for you and others. People who have had traditional dentures before getting a fixed bridge often describe this as an overwhelming and very positive experience.
Alternatives to a Fixed Bridge
implant_17

An alternative to a fixed bridge is a removable overdenture, which is anchored on implants. The old fashioned denture has many disadvantages and should be avoided if possible.
implant_18

Removable, implant anchored overdenture

A removable full denture that is connected to either a ball or bar attachment, which in turn is anchored on two or more implants in the front part of the jaw.
The implants help keep the denture in place and provide better function and comfort. Cost is usually the reason why this solution is chosen over a fixed bridge – although the end result can’t be compared.
implant_20

Denture Full Removal

A denture that is loosely placed on top of the gum to cover the lost teeth. This alternative has no real advantages – except for its low price and easy installation.

The disadvantages are many: discomfort in eating, poor esthetics, affected speech, and sore gums from denture movement. Moreover, a full denture placed in the upper jaw severely reduces the sense of taste.

Implantology FAQ

Having a good of experience in implants and having used implants from all the companies gives us broad and through understanding what are patient needs and how to give them the best possible result. We use Non screw design of implants which helps us get over the main complication in integrated implants – screw loosening. We Also do immediate loading implants where in our patients can get their teeth immediately after implant placement, and don’t have to wait for the regular 3 months.

We can provide you with many options in bleaching from home bleach to inoffice one hour bleaches.

People lose teeth all the time, either through trauma when teeth are knocked out (athletes such as rugby players and boxers commonly experience this) or due to decay, gum disease or old age. Whatever the reason for loosing your teeth they need to be replaced both for aesthetic and functional reasons. The most common treatments for missing teeth are either a denture or a fixed bridge. However, dental implants are now becoming a more popular treatment to replace missing teeth as they provide a longer-term solution, stop bone loss and preserve nearby healthy tooth tissue.

What is a dental Implant ?

A dental implant is an artificial substitute / replacement for the root portion of your natural tooth and is anchored into a pre-drilled socket in your jaw-bone to support a crown, bridge or secure a denture firmly in place. Implants are made from titanium, a material that is well tolerated by bone and integrates easily with bone tissue. During the placement of a dental implant the goal is to achieve a close contact between the outer surface of the implant and the surrounding bone tissue so they can “fuse” together (osseointegration) creating a stable support for the new teeth.

The Procedure

Before any implants are placed it is important for your dentist to assess the health of your teeth and gums, if there are any signs of gum disease or decay these must be treated first. Following this your treatment will be planned following several x-rays and a CT scan in some cases to assess that bone quality and check for nearby anatomical structures to avoid before any drilling. The procedure is usually carried out under local anaesthesia and sometimes IV sedation if it is a long procedure or the patient is very anxious.

The gum where the implant is to be placed is cut and lifted and a small hole is drilled in the jawbone at the precise location of the intended implant. The titanium implant is tightly fitted into this socket and the gum is stitched back over the implant. If there is insufficient bone material to accommodate the implant a bone graft may be required or alternatively the dentist may use smaller sized mini implants if suitable.

Once the implant has been placed it is left to heal and integrate with the jawbone for between 6 weeks to 6 months. The bone tissue will grow and anchor itself into the microscopic rough surface of the implant.

During this “healing period” patients are given temporary teeth (bridges) or continue to wear dentures. It is important that any temporary teeth do not exert any forces on the healing implant. After the healing period the gum is lifted again and a post is attached to the implant with a temporary crown. Four to six weeks later when the surrounding gum tissue has matured the final permanent restoration can be fitted to the implant

What are the advantages of dental implants over dentures and bridges?

  • Stop bone loss

Normally, the bone tissue surrounding the root of your tooth is maintained by your body’s natural renewal process. However, if you loose a tooth, you will be left with a hole where your tooth root used to be and the bone around this area will slowly begin to disappear (atrophy) and may change the shape of your jaw. A dental implant placed in that area can actually stimulate bone growth and production, preventing loss of valuable bone structure. In some patients where bone loss is substantial a bone graft may be required before placing a dental implant. Bone loss is a problem for people who have dentures and as the shape of the jaw slowly changes the dentures need to be adjusted or re-made to fit the new shape of the jaw. Bone loss can also make a person look older since the area around the mouth can sag as bone is lost

  • Improved function

Once dental implants are fully integrated into you jaw they function just as well as your own natural teeth and you can eat the foods you want and speak with complete confidence. With dentures, eating hard foods such as an apple can be a problem, either the dentures come loose or patients cannot withstand the hard biting forces as they cause pain in the gums. Irritation and inflammation of the gums is a common problem amongst denture patients. Dentures can be supported by implants or mini-implants which will improve function greatly enabling patients to eat the foods they want with complete confidence and not having to worry about bone loss and loose dentures falling out.

  • Improved dental hygiene

Unlike bridges and dentures, which require special cleaning instructions and extra attention, dental implants just need regular brushing, flossing and hygiene appointments just like your natural teeth.

  • No need to drill or remove any healthy tooth structure

When replacing missing teeth with dental bridges, the teeth adjacent to the gap need to be prepared and healthy tooth structure is removed to accommodate a crown or bridge abutment to fit over the top of the tooth. In the future if one of the supporting teeth is damaged the entire bridge restoration will also be compromised whereas with an implant the restoration is independent of any of your other teeth. By replacing lost teeth with an implant, no support is required of the adjacent teeth, and hence your natural teeth do not need to be prepared or altered in any way

  • Better aesthetics

If done correctly a dental implant should be indistinguishable from your surrounding natural teeth. Dentures can come loose and look un-natural if they do not blend with your gums and some bridges and dentures have unsightly metal clasps to hold them in place. Dental implants provide a much better cosmetic and functional end result.

How many teeth can a dental implant support?

Traditionally an implant placed into your bone supports a single crown and this is know as a “single tooth implant”. However if you have several missing teeth you do not necessarily need an implant for every missing tooth, one implant can support several teeth via a bridge or a denture. The number of implants required depends on the volume and density of bone tissue available at each implant site. Often smaller sized “mini implants” are used to secure dentures in place.

In the case of full mouth reconstructions where an arch of several teeth (10+) need to be supported in either the upper or lower jaw a minimum of 5-6 implants in each jaw would be required. The exact number of implants needed would depend on the individual case and your implant surgeon would be able to advise you on the best solution after a through examination and assessment.

Am I a suitable candidate for dental implants?

Dental Implants can be placed in patients of any age (with fully developed jawbones) provided that they have sufficient quality and quality of bone tissue available. Most healthy individuals that maintain a good oral hygiene program are suitable candidates for dental implants. Circumstances where implants may not be suitable or situations that have an increased risk of implant failure include:

  • Heavy smoking – this slows down and hinders the healing process
  • Excessive alcohol intake – disrupts healing of the gums
  • Periodontal gum disease – all active gum disease must be treated prior to any implant procedure to ensure long term success of any treatment. Periodontal disease is a major cause of bone loss, which would hinder the success of any implant procedure.
  • Immuno-compromised individuals (steroids, auto-immune disease, patients undergoing radiation treatment).
  • Teeth grinders (bruxism) – a night time splint can be given to treat this.

How will I know if I have enough bone for implants ?

Using a combination of dental X-rays and a CT scan your bone density and volume can be assessed as well as information about nearby anatomical structures to avoid such as nerves.

What if I don’t have enough bone for dental implants?

The alternative options for replacing missing teeth include dentures and bridges. However, there are various bone grafting and tissue regeneration procedures that can be carried out to enable treatment with dental implants:

  • Sinus augmentation – if you need to replace missing teeth at the back of the upper jaw then a sinus augmentation, whereby new bone in the sinus is created can increase the height of the bone available for the placement of implants in this area.
  • Onlay Grafting – this is where a piece of bone from somewhere else is taken and it is secured over an area that is deficient in bone, over time the newly placed bone will fuse with the underlying bone creating a better environment for an implant to be placed.

Where can bone be taken from for the graft?

The best source of bone for your graft is your own bone tissue from else where in your body and areas that can be used for bone grafts include the chin, back of the lower jaw, the hip and tibia. Bone taken from your own body offers the most viable and faster healing time when compared to alternatives. In many cases a combination of artificial bone substitutes and your natural bone is used. In any bone grafting procedure the grafted bone provides an anchor and stimulus for the existing bone to grow onto, eventually providing an environment suitable for the placement of implants.

How long do dental implants last?

Dental implants have been used for over 30 years to replace missing teeth and they can last a lifetime depending upon how you look after them. Like any other restoration your implant-supported teeth can still be damaged by trauma and affected by gum disease and poor oral hygiene. White Tooth coloured fillings with Composite bonding

Dental bonding is a technique that has been used in cosmetic dentistry for many years and can transform your smile in just a single visit. The process involves the skillful / artistic use of the correct amount and colour of “dental compsite” which is a moldable material with a paste like consitency made from acrylic resins and a variety of filler depending on the type used. Bonding is used for a variety of cosmetic dental procedures including:

  • * Filling dental cavites – “White fillings”
  • * Replacing metal or amalgam fillings
  • * Repairing broken and Chipped teeth
  • * Closing gaps between teeth (diastamas)
  • * Reshaping teeth
  • * Smile makovers – composite veneers (although porcelain veneers are the better option for this)

Why have dental implants become so popular?

The tremendous popularity of implants has largely been the result of people living longer and their desire to fulfill a lifestyle with the greatest possible pleasure. Implants give us the ability to restore something that is fundamental to our own body. Almost everyone wants to smile more frequently and feel more secure when they talk and laugh. Dental implants allow you to do everything you want with total self-assurance.

How long have dental implants been available?

Although the first dental implants are over 2000 years old, they have only been a viable alternative in the last 35 years or so.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are medically pure titanium devices that are placed into the jawbone. They act as an anchor to provide a solid base for artificial tooth replacement. Titanium is used in other surgical procedures such as knee and hip replacements.

Who is a good candidate for dental implants?

Anyone in reasonable health who wants to replace missing teeth; those who are dissatisfied with their present denture; those people who would like to eat better and with more comfort, smile more frequently and feel more secure when they talk and laugh. In some instances, some patients may not have sufficient bone available for the placement of implants. In these patients, new bone can be added by ridge augmentation procedures.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Patients with implants have stated that they eat better, are more comfortable when they eat, and don’t have to use denture adhesive to retain their dentures. They also say that they can talk and laugh without feeling self-conscious and without fear of their dentures slipping out.

All these improvements make people with dentures feel better about themselves, increasing their self confidence while improving their social and business lives.

Am I too old for dental implants?

Age is not a deterrent. Anyone healthy enough to undergo routine dentistry is healthy enough to have dental implants placed. The oldest known patient with dental implants is 88 years and the youngest is 15.

What is the success rate of dental implants?

If the treatment is properly planned, the surgery accomplished following accepted rules of practice, the prosthesis fabricated correctly and the prosthesis properly maintained by the patient, success rates are in excess of 98%.
There are factors, however, beyond the control of both the dentist and patient that can affect the life of an implant. Lifestyle changes, accidents, and illnesses can all have a negative affect.

How long will my implants last?

There are few things in life that last a lifetime and dental implants are no different. Should a problem arise, it normally does during the first six months to a year following surgery, during the period of bone healing. After this period, problems appear to be less frequent, with only occasional bite adjustments required.

How do I choose a dentist that does the highest quality implant at the most economical cost?

We have selected the most caring dental health professionals to represent our team. These practitioners believe in providing the highest possible care and quality of implants.

What types of restorations can be placed on implants?

Implants can be used in a variety of circumstances ranging from a removable denture to fixed crowns, bridges, and orthodontic appliances.

How many implants will I need?

Your dental team trained in placement of dental implants can provide you with a thorough consultation to bring about the best treatment alternatives available to meet your present budget.

Why should I even consider getting dental implants?

Apart from being able to smile, eat, sing and speak better; dental implants prevent the onset of poor facial profile due to loss of bone mass in your jaw bone. Natural jaw bone is only designed to last approximately 30 years before it completely deteriorates and dental implants are not an option.

Implants prevent bone loss by transmitting load forces during the chewing process down into the jawbone. The jawbone reacts to this loading by increasing the bone density. Implants are well known in their ability to stop bone loss and restore facial skeletal structure while significantly improving nutrition.

What kind of foods can I eat with implants?

Implants will allow you to enjoy foods like raw carrots, corn on the cob and apples that you may have avoided for years. Implant supported dentures can triple your biting force allowing you to eat any hard food that your original teeth were once able to do.

How do implants on dentures compare to normal dentures?

Dentures fixed to dental implants will give you an enhanced improvement in your quality of life that standard dentures can not provide. McGill University in Toronto conducted a study to determine if people, especially the elderly, can improve their chewing ability and nutrition if they wear dentures anchored by implants. After 6 months, the group with dental implants did not only increase their body fat but blood tests recorded significantly higher levels of albumin, hemoglobin (Iron) and vitamin B12 – all indicators of nutrition.
The study group also reported significant improvements in their ability to chew meat and hard vegetables and did not avoid foods they did in the past.

Will implant procedures cause much discomfort?

The discomfort experienced after the placement of implants is generally equivalent to that experienced from the extraction of a tooth. Most implants are placed using local anesthetic only. Sedation can be used with the more apprehensive patients and occasionally, if extensive surgery is required, a general anesthetic may be recommended.
The use of dental implants is designed to help you avoid pain and discomfort.

How long is the entire process?

The entire process typically involves 2 or 3 trips to the dentist over a 4 to 5 month period.

How long do I have to wait to resume my daily activities?

In most cases, you can resume normal activities the day following the placement of your implants.

Is there special care needed with my implants?

Along with normal brushing and flossing, a periodic check-up with your dentist is required. They will check the individual implants and clean around the posts if necessary. Dental implants do not suffer from normal teeth problems such as decay and hot/cold sensitivity.

Can I still get implants if I have a fear of dentists?

Yes, it is normal to have some level of anxiety towards dentists. Most dental fears are related to an early experience during your childhood. Today’s dental practices are capable of assisting you in dealing with those fears to enable you to have the opportunity to improve our overall physical health and appearance.

If your tooth’s nerve chamber becomes infected by decay, or damaged by trauma, root canal treatment is often the only way to save your tooth. Inside the hard outer shell of each tooth is a specialized area called the pulp or nerve chamber. The pulp chamber contains a system of blood vessels, lymph vessels and nerves, the pulp, which enter from the bone through the root canals. This system provides nourishment for the cells within the tooth. Deep tooth decay or other injury can cause damage to or infection of the tooth pulp. In a root canal or endodontic treatment, the dentist removes the damaged or infected pulp and replaces it with a special filler which helps maintain the remaining tooth structure.
