Have you lost a natural tooth recently? We understand the mindset of our patients who lose their teeth and take it on priority to help them get their missing teeth back. We offer a few options to restore missing teeth, among which dental implants are the most preferred ones. They offer certain features that their alternatives do not, making them the go-to solution.
Patients who get prosthetic teeth to replace their missing natural ones have this concern often on their minds. We use dental-grade ceramic material to fabricate the implant crown. It is highly customizable in terms of color, contour, and other aesthetic aspects. Even if anyone takes a closer look at it when you laugh or smile, they wouldn’t be able to spot the difference between the implant crown and the adjoining natural teeth.
Implants are known to be one of the longest-lasting dental restorations. They are inserted into the jawbone and fixed firmly with the help of dental adhesives. Further, implants are made from titanium, a strong and durable material that is almost impossible to break or bend. You can bite and chew food without having any concerns that the implant would get damaged. With optimum care, they last upwards of ten years without any hassle.
Since implant crowns are made from dental-grade ceramic, they are resistant to staining. However, it is advisable to avoid excessive consumption of colored foods, smoking cigarettes, etc. Regular brushing and flossing keep staining and plaque build-up away, which keeps them whiter.
When combined with dental crowns, implants are used to replace single teeth. But, when combined with dental bridges or dentures, they can be used to replace multiple teeth in one go. The dentist will thoroughly diagnose you and come up with a suitable solution depending on the number of missing teeth. Implant-supported bridges and dentures offer better stability and also prevent jawbone shrinkage.
Before commencing implant placement, the dentist will check your candidacy for implants. Factors such as jawbone strength, size, overall health condition, spacing available for placing the implant, etc. will be taken into account. Once the implant is placed, the dentist will recommend a few months healing period. Placing the implant crown will require a few sessions as the dentist may have to make modifications to it. The entire procedure will require several months to be completed.
