Dental implants have completely
revolutionized dentistry and have now become one of the most popular dental
services for several reasons. An implant is a surgical fixture that can replace
broken, chipped and extracted teeth.
Does a Dental Implant Work?
A dental implant is constructed with
titanium at Wellness Dental Studio. It is then integrated into the jawbone as a
substitute for the root of the lost tooth. A prosthetic tooth or denture can
then be fixed on this implant and help you function like normal once again.Types
of Dental Implants
There are different types of implants
that are indicated for different reasons. After a thorough examination of your
teeth and gums, our dentists will be able to suggest the best option for you.
At our clinic, we offer 4 dental implant
Single Unit Implant:
This dental implant is best
suited when you have a single missing tooth that needs to be replaced. It’s a
simple and quick procedure.#2:
Full Mouth Rehabilitation:
When your entire set of
teeth and underlying gums are compromised, you might benefit from a full mouth
rehabilitation dental implant.
This involves meticulous designing of the
implant after taking impressions of your mouth, and great care to maintain the
quality of the implant.#3:
Implant-supported Dentures (Bar or Attachment):
When one does not have any teeth
in the jaw, but has enough bone to support implants, an implant-supported
denture may be recommended. It has special attachments that can snap into place
on the dental implants.
There are two types of
implant-supported dentures: Bar-retained dentures
— A thin
metal bar (that follows the curvature of the jawbone) houses the denture as
well as special clips or attachments. These clips or attachments securely snap
into place using the dental implants. Ball-retained dentures
dental implant is fitted with a metal "ball and socket" type of
attachment. The denture will house the corresponding attachment to the implant,
making it easy to snap the denture into place.
Daily cleaning for the dentures
is required. Do not go to sleep with it.#4:
In 1998 Dr. Paulo Malo
successfully treated the first patient with the All-on- 4® treatment concept.
Since then hundreds of thousands of patients have been treated with this
concept using Nobel BioCare implants.
The All-on- 4® treatment concept
is the best solution for full-arch treatment using tilted implants, but only
when Nobel BioCare products are combined. Many have tried to mirror this
groundbreaking concept, but Nobel BioCare has the scientifically documented
success to back it up.
It is a minimally invasive
solution with a fixed full-arch restoration for high patient satisfaction.How
Are Dental Implants Placed?
The procedure of placing dental implants
is fairly straight-forward. It is a safe and comfortable surgery, performed
under local or general anesthesia.
It can take about four to six months for the
implants to fully get integrated and stabilized in your jawbone. Once that has
happened, a prosthetic tooth can be placed to restore the look and function of
