What are dental implants?
A dental implants treatment (or tooth implant) is versatile and can replace single & multiple teeth, it can also be used to replace an arch of teeth, or secure dentures.
At Welldent we use dental implants treatment which are divided into three parts.
1st Part is the titanium screw that replaces the root of the tooth, which is not visible as it is placed within the jaw bone.
2nd part is a crown that replaces the missing tooth in oral cavity,
3rd part is called as abutment which connects the 1st and 2nd part i.e. the titanium screw and the crown.
Who is a candidate for dental implants?
Dental implant is an ideal treatment option for most healthy people and certainly it’s a better option than a dental bridge as no adjoining teeth are involved in the treatment.
However implants are avoided in patients with poor oral hygiene status, smokers and patients with uncontrolled diabetes.
If you have a missing tooth then schedule a consultation visit at Welldent to discuss all of your options for restoring your teeth.
What are the advantages to dental implants?
There are some distinct advantages of choosing dental implant over conventional dental treatments
- Implant replaces the whole missing tooth i.e. both crown and root.
- No bone resorption.
- No need to prep adjoining teeth implant.
- It almost functions & looks like a normal tooth.
- No interference in flossing or brushing.
