“Are you missing out on life because of missing teeth? Is it hindering you from eating your favourite foods, participating in conversations or socializing because of low confidence levels to smile or speak? If yes, then you have a reliable solution in Dental Implants, most preferred for missing teeth” says Dr. Vikas Gowd, a renowned Oral and Maxillofacial Prosthodontist and Dental Implant Specialist in Hyderabad.
Loss of teeth for various reasons, not only affects social life, but also causes oral and physiological complications like continuous bone loss& premature aging, bite changes, loss of adjacent and opposing teeth, slurred speech and eating habits affecting your overall health. Therefore addressing missing teeth immediately is of paramount importance to prevent complications.
WHY DENTAL IMPLANTS?
Dental implants offer sure solutions, that’s why it’s the most preferred solution for missing teeth. Missing teeth replacement involves various treatment options – both traditional and modern.
Traditional options such as crown &bridges, full or partial dentures address short-term cosmetic problems, but not bone loss. They affect the adjacent teeth requiring them to be ground down to serve as posts for bridge with a risk of future cavities or endodontic failure.
With dental implants the healthy teeth are not disturbed and there is no bone loss. That’s why most dental organizations advise Dental Implants as the standard of care for tooth replacement. Dental implants are proven to prevent bone loss after the loss of natural teeth.
Modern dental implants are precision devices available in different designs to address your specific needs. The most common type is the titanium screw that is anchored into the jaw bone, serving as a post for custom-made tooth crown. Once the crown is placed it looks identical to natural teeth.
WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. It is an option to replace any missing teeth. Implant is placed in the bone below the gum tissue.
A temporary abutment may be placed on the implant until the healing phase is complete after which a cosmetic temporary crown is placed to fill the missing space. Once the healing is done, the abutment is attached to the dental implant.
At Dr. Gowds Dental Hospital, a custom made crown is designed in our in-house laboratory (saving time and rendering perfection) to match the adjacent teeth and is cemented onto the abutment completing the dental implant treatment. Similarly multiple teeth can be replaced with dental implants. Implant supported prosthesis (removable) can be designed as a solution to replace dentures.
WHO IS THE BEST CANDITATE FOR DENTAL IMPLANTS?
Dental implant treatment is a long-lasting solution for missing teeth and chronic tooth problems. Certain factors like quality and quantity of bone, overall health condition are taken into consideration to evaluate if the patient is a good candidate for dental implants. If there is no adequate bone support for holding an implant, bone augmentation procedures are required for a successful outcome.
