Dental implants are artificial tooth roots surgically placed into the jawbone to support replacement teeth for missing teeth

DENTAL IMPLANTS

Dental implants are a popular and effective long-term solution for people who suffer from missing teeth, failing teeth, or chronic dental problems. They are artificial tooth roots, similar in shape to screws. When dental implants are placed in your jawbone, they bond with your natural bone, becoming a sturdy base for supporting one or more artificial teeth, called crowns.

The implant itself is made of titanium, a material that's well tolerated by the body and provides a strong foundation for the replacement teeth. On top of the implant, a component called an abutment is placed, onto which the crown is attached. 

 

Dental implants have the advantage of preserving bone by providing the stimulation your body needs to produce new bone cells, a benefit not provided by dentures and bridges. They are also more comfortable and stable than conventional dentures, allowing you to retain a more natural biting and chewing capacity.

 

In addition, because dental implants integrate into the bone structure, they are very stable and can have the look and feel of one's own natural teeth. This improves comfort, appearance, speech, and overall quality of life for many patients.

WHAT are Dental Implants?

Dental implants play a transformative role in restorative dentistry, offering a durable foundation for replacing missing teeth. Comprising tiny titanium screws, dental implants are surgically placed into the jawbone, providing a secure and stable anchor for artificial teeth. The key to their success lies in the process of osseointegration, wherein the bone naturally integrates with the titanium implants, forming a robust and long-lasting foundation.

 

Osseointegration is a biological phenomenon where the living bone cells fuse with the implanted titanium screws over time. This process ensures a strong bond between the dental implants and the jawbone, mimicking the natural structure of a tooth root. The result is a stable and reliable support system for artificial teeth, be it crowns, bridges, or dentures.

 

By promoting osseointegration, dental implants not only restore the functionality of missing teeth but also contribute to maintaining the health and integrity of the jawbone. The stability they provide is crucial for effective biting, chewing, and speaking, enhancing overall oral function and offering a natural-looking and durable solution for individuals with missing teeth.

 

WHY Dental Implants?

1. Natural Feel and Function: Dental implants mimic the structure of natural teeth, from the root up. This makes them stable and comfortable, providing a natural biting and chewing capability.

2. Bone Preservation: Unlike dentures or bridges, dental implants provide the necessary stimulation to the jawbone to prevent bone loss. They act like natural tooth roots, maintaining jawbone health.

3. Improved Appearance: Dental implants look like your own natural teeth. As they integrate into the structure of your bone, they prevent the bone loss that can prematurely age the face.

4. Longevity and Durability: With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last many years or even a lifetime, making them a cost-effective long-term solution.

5. Enhanced Self-esteem and Confidence: Dental implants can give back your smile, and help you feel better about yourself. They do not slip or click during speech, eating or laughing, thus improving your social confidence.

Dental implants play a pivotal role in not only restoring missing teeth but also in preventing bone loss in the jaw and preserving the natural contours of the face. This makes them the preferred choice for replacing single or multiple missing teeth.

 

Beyond their aesthetic benefits, dental implants offer exceptional comfort as they become an integral part of the jawbone through the process of osseointegration. Unlike traditional tooth replacement options, dental implants provide a secure and stable foundation for prosthetic teeth, mimicking the natural structure of the teeth and ensuring long-term oral health.

 

With their ability to halt bone loss and seamlessly integrate into the jaw, dental implants stand out as a modern and effective solution for achieving a complete and functional smile.

 

The Implant PROCESS at Studio Aesthetique:

 

The Implant PROCESS at Studio Aesthetique involves a meticulous and advanced approach, ensuring personalized and long-lasting results for our patients. We utilize cutting-edge technology, including CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) 3D imaging, to gain comprehensive insights into the condition of your bone structure. This detailed imaging enables us to create a highly personalized treatment plan, eliminating guesswork and ensuring precision in the placement of dental implants.

 

The dental implant procedure at Studio Aesthetique typically follows a 2-stage process. In the first stage, the titanium implants are surgically placed into the jawbone, serving as artificial tooth roots. The success of this stage relies on the principles of osseointegration, where the bone naturally fuses with the implanted titanium screws over time. This integration process establishes a strong and stable foundation for the forthcoming artificial teeth.

 

After allowing sufficient time for osseointegration to occur, the second stage involves attaching the abutments to the implants. Abutments act as connectors between the implants and the prosthetic teeth, ensuring a secure and functional fit.

 

The final step involves the placement of custom-crafted crowns, bridges, or dentures onto the abutments, completing the restoration process and providing patients with natural-looking and fully functional replacement teeth. Through this comprehensive and technologically advanced approach, Studio Aesthetique aims to deliver exceptional results in dental implant procedures, enhancing both the aesthetics and functionality of our patients' smiles.

 

STAGE 1 Surgical Phase

The surgical phase of dental implants, also known as the implant placement stage, begins with a thorough assessment of the patient's oral and overall health to ensure they are good candidates for the procedure. Once suitability is determined, we will plan the procedure using X-rays or CT scans for precise positioning.

 

The actual surgery involves administering local anesthesia to numb the area. Then, the dentist makes an incision in the gum tissue to expose the jawbone. A hole is then carefully drilled into the bone where the dental implant, a titanium post, will be placed. This implanted post acts as the new tooth root.

 

After placement, the incision in the gums is sutured closed, leaving the implant embedded in the bone. This marks the end of surgical phase. The patient now enters a healing period called osseointegration, where the jawbone will grow around the implant, anchoring it securely in place. This process can take several weeks or even months, depending on individual healing rates and the quality of the bone where the implant is placed.

 

STAGE 2 Prosthetic Phase

The prosthetic phase of dental implants, also referred to as the restoration phase, begins once the osseointegration process is complete and the dental implant is securely fused to the jawbone. This phase is where the replacement teeth, or prosthetics, are designed, created and attached to the implants.

 

The first step is to uncover the implant by making a small incision in the gum. An abutment, a small metal post that serves as the connector to hold the new tooth, is then attached to the implant. After the abutment is placed, impressions of the patient's mouth are taken.

 

These serve as the model to create the custom-made crown, or artificial tooth, that matches the color, shape, and size of the patient's natural teeth. Once the crown is ready, it is attached to the abutment. The prosthetic phase ends when the patient has a fully functional, natural-looking tooth replacement. The end result is a secure, durable, and aesthetic solution for missing teeth.

BENEFITS of Implants:

  • Gives you back the confidence to smile again

  • Restores the ability to speak and chew

  • Promotes better oral health

  • Long lasting permanent results

  • Takes away the embarrassment of wearing removable dentures

  • We believe, nobody should go to bed with their teeth in a box beside them, hence for those patients without any teeth, we offer implant supported fixed bridge options.
