What are Dental Implants?

A Dental Implant is a surgical component that interfaces with the bone of the jaw to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge or denture.

The basis for modern dental implants is a biologic process called osseointegration, in which materials such as titanium form an intimate bond to bone. The implant fixture is first placed so that it is likely to osseointegrate ie fuse with bone, then a dental prosthetic is added. A variable amount of healing time is required for osseointegration before the dental prosthetic (a tooth, bridge or denture) is attached to the implant .

Implants are used to replace missing individual teeth (single tooth restorations), multiple teeth, or to restore edentulous dental arches (implant retained fixed bridge, implant-supported overdenture).

WHY SHOULD YOU GET THEM?

Dental implants are better alternatives to conventional techniques such as ‘bridges’ or dentures.

Due to the great extent of relief offered by this procedure and this being very similar to natural teeth, they are seen as a welcome technique desired by many.

DENTAL IMPLANT VS REMOVABLE PROSTHESES

Dental Implants in Gurgaon are restorative devices used to replace one or more missing teeth. When a tooth is missing, a dental bridge may be used to “bridge” the gap between the remaining teeth. Cosmodontist Dental & Implant Centre offers dental implants in Gurgaon to improve your dental health and enhance your smile.

When a tooth is lost, the adjacent and opposing teeth may drift, causing a change in your bite that may lead to greater dental problems. The change in your bite can result in additional tooth loss, fractured teeth or fillings, jaw pain, and possibly headaches. Failing to replace a missing tooth with dental bridges can also lead to gum disease and other dental hygiene problems.

DENTAL IMPLANTS VS BRIDGE

A bridge is a fixed dental restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth by joining an artificial tooth definitively to adjacent teeth or dental implants.

For a dental bridge,the adjacent teeth to the missing teeth/tooth need to be prepared and reduced in height and width to accommodate the prostheses.If you develop a deep cavity, infection or periodontal (gum) disease with either supporting tooth, then you may lose the entire bridge.

With a dental implant, the crown is directly connected to the implant via an abutment, and you have no space between the crown and the gum line. Unfortunately, with bridges — depending on how much space is available and the type of food you eat — you’ll end up getting food lodged underneath and between the fake teeth.

A dental bridge /removable prostheses may need to be replaced every 3 to 10 years, depending on proper care, while implants are considered a more permanent solution.
