Lifelong Replacement With Dental implants

As a substitute for a missing or lost tooth it is hard to beat a dental implant for realism and authenticity. Dental implants are the only dental replacement that restores the whole tooth from crown to root and as a result is the sturdiest restoration available.

There are many reasons for losing a tooth ranging from accidental damage to gum disease but whatever the cause it can be a very painful and upsetting experience at any age. If a tooth has been knocked out or extracted due to decay it can be the cause of further dental complications causing pain and anxiety so it is always recommended by dentists to replace teeth as soon as possible. If a gap is left in the dental arc then it can cause the other teeth to move or rotate. This can lead to complications with bite and also increases the likelihood of further dental infection.

The implant procedure usually takes place in three steps. Firstly, a screw is secured to the patient’s jawbone, with the top protruding just above the surface of the gum. This is then left to heal so that the bone and gum tissue can fuse to the implant in a process called osseointergration. In the second procedure a abutment is attached to the screw which will eventually allow the crown to be attached.Patients who have jawbones and gums which are strong, will particularly benefit from a dental implant. A good standard of oral hygiene is needed to maintain the implant but the permanency it provides really sets it apart from other dental substitutes.

Unlike other restorations, a dental implant will last a whole lifetime if properly cared for. Although the initial cost may be slightly more than other treatments, you need to bear in mind that once you have had implant surgery you are unlikely to need to spend any further money on future replacements.

If you are suffering from a missing tooth, see a dentist and ask about having a dental implant fitted to bring the smile back to your face. Call 177-6450704 for an appointment with Dr Goma.

Most Realistic Substitute For A Real Tooth

There are several options available to replace missing teeth. Some patients opt to have a partial denture, others choose to have a fixed dental bridge. Both dental bridges  and dentures have their advantages, most notably that they are both relatively affordable. However, they both also suffer from a degree of impermanency and are at times prone to breaking. Some patients are looking for a dental substitute with a greater degree of solidity. This is one of the reasons why dental implants are becoming the option of choice for patients to replace missing teeth.

A missing tooth can be the source of embarrassment. It can make people reluctant to smile for fear of exposing what is a very visible flaw. Missing teeth can also be damaging for your dental health. The hollows left by missing teeth can be breeding grounds for decay-causing bacteria. Gaps in the teeth can also encourage existing teeth to lean, causing painful interruptions in the bite, which could even cause the painful jaw disorder TMJ. Missing teeth can also be the cause of facial tissue sinking and loss of profile. For these reasons it is important to replace the missing tooth as soon as possible and a dental implant is the most secure method of doing just that.

A dental implant takes the form of a tapered cylindrical screw that is anchored into the jawbone. This acts as a solid base for a post and artificial tooth, or crown, to be attached. They work particularly well for patients who have strong and healthy jawbones and teeth. Because they are so solid dental implants do not prohibit the eating of certain foods that other dental substitutes can. Neither do dental implants require any kind of messy dental bonding or adhesives.

A dental implant will take two or three sessions to fix. There will need to be a two or three-week wait after the screw has been implanted to allow the screw and the bone to fuse in a process called osseointergration. On subsequent visits the dentist will attach the post and crown.

A dental implant is the most realistic substitute for a real tooth. Many patients opt for implants, despite the extra cost, because of the feeling of security and permanency they provide. If you have a missing tooth, or are considering changing an existing artificial dental appliance, visit a dentist and ask about dental implants.

Dental Implants – Excellent Tooth Replacement Option

One of the most exciting advancements in cosmetic dentistry in the past decade has been the introduction of dental implants. Dental implants are an excellent aesthetic option for the replacement of missing or lost teeth. This mode of treatment is indeed more expensive than a conventional denture, but if sufficient bone is present into which the implant can be placed, then dental implants are often the most ideal way to fill a space left by the loss of a tooth/teeth.

In the past, when you lost a tooth you would only be able to have a denture or bridge fitted. Luckily, with the developments in modern dentistry and with the use of dental implants, you can now have stronger, fully restored teeth that look and feel completely natural.Our dental implants are titanium, screw shaped attachments which are used as an artificial substitute for the root of your natural tooth. The titanium implant is inserted into the jaw and left to integrate with your bone.This titanium dental implant can be placed immediately after removing a tooth that has been electively extracted. This method often means less swelling and can minimize post operative sensitivity. In the event that a space/gap is being filled years after a tooth has been lost then this titanium rod acts as a substitute tooth root.

There are two stages to dental implants. At first the dental implant post is placed into the jaw by a specialist implant dentist (Periodontist or Oral Surgeon). When the jaw has healed over and the sutures have been removed, then it is possible to attach the man made dental crowns to the implant. These replacement teeth are attached to the dental implant, and are positioned just above the gum like real teeth which gives a beautiful aesthetic natural appearance. Not all patients are suitable for implants. A consultation with a DermaDental dentist along with specialist x-rays will determine a patient’s suitability for dental implants.

A dental implant affords the new man made tooth the much needed strength to remain in-situ within the mouth, for a very long time. Dental implants allow patients to live a completely normal life with absolutely no need to worry about dentures falling out of the mouth during eating or talking. Dental implants can also be successfully placed in order to support fixed bridges or dentures, ensuring a very stable result with minimal risk of movement during normal daily function.

Dental implants are as close to real teeth as are available. Because the root of the implant is secured to the jawbone like a real tooth, it acts and feels like a real tooth. If you have a missing tooth or are looking to replace an earlier dental substitute, make an appointment to see a dentist.For more information call Goma Dental at 177-645-0704.

Ankylos Implant System In Shimla

The Ankylos system was developed in 1985 and has been in clinical use since 1987. Some of its significant design features include (1) a progressive thread structure of the endosseous implant body for targeted load distribution to the apically positioned spongy bone; and (2) the gap-free subgingival tapered connection to the abutments.Ankylos Implant System meets both the patients’ and the dentists’ standards of success and is suitable for use as single tooth replacements, bridge abutments, and retention elements for all regions and prosthetic indications.The implants were considered successful if the following criteria were met:

* clinical stability and function;
* no inflammation of the peri-implant hard and soft tissue;
* no progressive loss of the peri-implant bone;
* no progressive loss of the peri-implant mucosa;
* satisfaction of the patient.

The Ankylos implants are made of biologically neutral pure titanium. As the human body tolerates it, the possibility of rejection is excluded thanks to the characteristics of the material. In order to keep them touch proof, the implants are packed in sterile glass: the supporting screw is put inside the superstructure and can only be removed right before the insertion of the implant. The rough surface of the implants enhances the perfect fit and healing of the “new root”. The special shape of ankylos implants ensures ideal fixing directly after the placement of the implant and protects the jawbone during mastication since the implant perfectly adjusts to its physiological characteristics. Four year clinical experience shows that thanks to the special form of the ankylos implant screw, the introduction of the occlusal force is carried out without overloading the bone substance. The ankylos implants are available in four different diameters and length that provide a solution for all implant problems.
The advantages of the Ankylos:

* high level of security
* long term aesthetic stability
* cemented replacements
* it ensures an optimal condition for immediate load
* minimal risk of infections
* low risk of the loss of the amount of bone
* short therapy time
* high quality and affordable

Dental implants are as close to real teeth as are available. Because the root of the implant is secured to the jawbone like a real tooth, it acts and feels like a real tooth. If you have a missing tooth or are looking to replace an earlier dental substitute, make an appointment to see a Implant dentist at Goma Dental or Call 177-645-0704.

Immediate Loading Dental Implants

“One of the most critical (perhaps the most critical) factors in successful osseointegration of an implant is stability in the bone at time of placement. Relative motion between the implant body and the surrounding bone during the early healing phase is considered to be a high risk factor for early implant loss as failure of osseointegration occurs” The term osseointergration means how the implant fuses with the bone. During the critical healing period, a loaded implant would be at greatest risk of realitive motion and would theoretically be most susceptible to failure of osseointergration. Loading the implant means the time when the crown, bridge, or denture is placed on the implant and used for biting and chewing.

It is very popular now to “immediate load” an implant but there is not complete agreement in the profession as to how soon and in what locations this is prudent. We, in consultation with our surgeons, decide what patients are good candidates for immediate load. The advantage of course is you get your restoration sooner, but at what cost? The idea is for your implant to last as long as possible.The concept of immediate implant loading has recently become popular due to less trauma, reduced overall treatment time, decreased patient’s anxiety and discomfort, high patient acceptance and better function and esthetics. Nonetheless, research and understanding in this area are confuse and sometimes contradictory. Hence, it is the purpose of this review to provide rational for immediate implant loading, summarize current available literature, and analyze factors that influencing this newly introduced treatment method. Results from this review indicated that immediate implant loading achieved similar high success rate as that noted in the conventional approach (delayed protocols). However, a careful case selection, proper treatment plan, meticulous surgery and proper design of prosthesis are essential for optimal outcomes when this approach is adopted.

This procedure has one of the highest success rates in dentistry, but all are not eligible to get a dental implant done. Consult a  dentist who will take your history and examine your teeth and gums to consider you for this restorative procedure.For More information please contact Goma Dental at177-645-0704.
