GET YOUR SMILE BACK WITH DENTAL IMPLANTS
Dental Implants are the mostly natural way of replacing your teeth. They feel very natural as they are integrate with your jaw bone in a similar way to your natural teeth.
If you are having missing natural teeth for a long period of time your jaw bone will start to reduce and your face can look a lot thinner. Dental Implants ensure your jaw bone is preserved and prevents gradual bone loss.
Densures are neither a comfortable or pratical solution for missing teeth. A Dental Implant is very pratical and will restore your dental function to what is was when you had natural teeth.

Implants Surgery Procedure
Implants Surgery might look or sound complicated but in reality being most advanced it attracts hardly any complications. Below are the procedures explained in a very simplified manner that are done in the Implants treatment.
Placing the Implant
With modern dentistry techniques the Implant placement procedure can be made comfortable and relatively pain-free. If you are particularly concerned then please ask your dentist for sedation, which will enable you to completely relax.
The jawbone is prepared for surgery, to place the Dental Implant, the surgeon makes a cut exposing the bone into which holes are drilled. They are deep enough so that the Dental Implant is properly placed, like the root, implanted deep into the bone.
Sometimes the bone is weak or not upto the standards in which we can do an implant surgery so the doctors perform Bone Grafting. After your jawbone heals, your surgeon places the Dental Implant metal post in your jawbone.
The entire process can take many months from start to finish. Much of that time is devoted to healing and waiting for the growth of new bone in your jaw.
After this , you'll be given a temporary crown that is placed for the gap and aesthetic purposes. You can remove this at your own will but for Implants procedure we have to wait until bone is healed.
During this process, the jawbone grows into and unites with the surface of the Dental Implant. This process, called as Osseointegration helps provide a durable base for your new artificial tooth — just as roots do for your natural teeth.
This process usually takes around 3 to 6 months depending on the bone health and structure. Some times people do not need much of a healing period and have good bone structure, their whole procedure is completed in one day.
Once the Implants have become fused with the bone, you can schedule the second surgery. Your dentist will confirm whether the implant is ready for the second surgery by taking an X-ray. This surgery is simpler than the first. A new incision is made to expose the heads of the Implants.
After healing is complete, you may need another minor surgery to place the abutment — the piece where the crown will eventually attach. The procedure is typically done with local anesthesia in an outpatient setting.
The wound is reopen to attach the abutment to Dental Implant, and a temporary crown is given for around 4 to 6 weeks until then gums around the abutment heals as the temporary crown is softer which cushions the implant and temporary crown forces to soft tisuess that eventually helps in healing.
After each stage of surgery, you may need to eat soft food while the surgical site heals
Placement of permanent Crown
The permanent crown will be made to look exactly like your surrounding teeth, with the surface texture, colour and anatomy all characterised to blend in perfectly with the surrounding dentition.
If for any reason you are not happy with the crown, make your doctor aware – it can be sent back to the dental technician if necessary to be remade.
You'll have impressions made of your mouth and remaining teeth. These impressions are used to make the crown — your realistic-looking artificial tooth. The crown can't be placed until your jawbone is strong enough to support use of the new tooth.
Permanent crown are made within two to three weeks, or less, and cemented or screwed to the abutment.
These teeth are considered as extremely strong and durable.
After permanent crown placement there are certain things that you will have to keep in mind which will be directed to you by your doctor as Post Implants care.
