WHAT IS A DENTAL IMPLANT?

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge.

What are the advantages of a dental implant?

  1. Dental Implants are quite similar to teeth as compared to other replacement options.
  2. Dental Implants are usually longer lasting as compared to other replacement options.
  3. Dental Implants help preserve the bone which would be lost post tooth removal.
  4. Dental Implants helps to avoid damaging the adjacent teeth.
  5. Dental Implants helps to avoid all the problems related to a removable denture.

What is the treatment duration?

If the treatment is straightforward, it can be a little as 12-15 weeks from placement of the implant to fit of the final crown. However, sometimes treatment can take longer depending on the level of complexity of your case, with some patients not finishing for up to a year. The exact time frame will be ascertained after your assessment at SK Smile Dental Clinic.   

How long does it take to place dental implants?

They may be placed in as little as 30 to 60 minutes depending on the location and the number of implants placed.

What is the success rate of dental implants?

It varies from individual to individual and with health and habits. For a healthy individual with good oral hygiene and good health, dental implants are predictably successful with reported success rates above 90-95 percent.

Do dental implants last?

Unlike natural teeth, dental implants are not susceptible to dental disease such as decay; however, the health of the gums is vital to maintaining lasting implant success. Conscientious home care by the patient and regular professional cleanings and check-ups are essential elements for dental implant sustainability. Each patient is different, and success relies upon diagnosis and planning, medical history, and a variety of other factors.

What if there is not enough bone or gum tissue for the dental implant?

A graft may be needed if your clinician determines there is not sufficient bone or gum tissue.

Who is a good candidate for dental implants?

Almost anyone who is missing a single tooth, multiple teeth,  or all teeth are candidates for dental implants.
