Are Dental Implants Right For You?
Dental Implants work essentially as a replacement tooth root or foundation/support for a dental prosthesis. Dental Implants are small titanium or titanium alloy screws that are gently placed into your jaw bone. In most cases a short healing period is necessary, during which time a process described as osseointegration occurs – that is, the bone heals onto the surface of the implant.
Dental Implants Are Now Consider The Standard Of Care For Single Or Multiple Missing Teeth.
Professor I.P. Branemark, the Swedish researcher who was one of the first scientists looking into titanium implants the late 1950’s and early 60’s, described people without teeth as ‘dental invalids’, the same way as someone missing a limb was referred to. He suggested that with this technology, no one should ever die without their teeth in their mouth. At CDIC, we believe that no one should live without their teeth in their mouth.
When performed by experienced and skilled dentists, implant treatment is one of the most predictable and successful treatments on offer for the replacement of teeth.
A Solution For A Large Range of Problems
At CDIC, we utilise dental implants to solve many different dental problems. Single missing teeth, multiple missing teeth, entire jaws without teeth as well as denture stabilisation for those patients who already have dentures but are uncomfortable, move around a lot or simply cannot be worn and don’t fit right.
A thorough medical and dental evaluation is first carried out. Dr. Hillel New and his team also need to assess whether or not enough bone exists in the required site for an implant of appropriate dimensions for the type of solution you require.
In most cases, the implants can be placed with a simple Local Anaesthetic, the patient experiencing no more than what one may while having a dental filling.
The area is monitored over a short period of time (0 – 6 months) and then impressions are taken to register the position of the implant and adjacent teeth if present. The models are then sent to our dental laboratory where your crown or bridge is custom made for you.
Within two visits, Dr Hillel New and his team can provide you with an implant solution that offers you the security and comfort of a healthy mouth.
The result is a long term replacement tooth / teeth that feels natural, comfortable, and attractive.
