Dental Implants are the best way to replace missing or damaged teeth. A dental implant is a replacement for your own tooth root, made from titanium and fitted precisely into your jawbone. It is inserted under local anaesthetic by one of our Oral Surgeon specialists, where it fuses over time with your own bone in a process known as osseointegration. This process takes between three to six months but will vary from patient to patient.
Once the dental implant – the replacement ‘root’ – has fused to the jaw, you may add a crown, a dental bridge, or full dentures atop a single dental implant or multiple dental implants. The secure implant will allow any prosthetic teeth to look, feel and function like natural teeth.
The cost of a Good Dental Implant can range between 25000 to 40000 depending on the material used, facilities at the dental clinic and expertise of the implantologist.
A Dental Implant is always preferred after a complete study, diagnosis and treatment planning with a CBCT.
- Long lasting: Compared to other treatments such as tooth bridges which last for 5-10 years, dental implants can last for an entire lifetime if maintained properly. The only part to replace is the crown.
- Mimicking natural teeth: Your replacement teeth will feel similar to your actual teeth, so you do not need to worry about your self-image issues.
- Preserve surrounding teeth: When an implant is inserted in place of a missing tooth, adjacent healthy teeth are not damaged.
- Comfort: Dental implants being a fixed replacement they have none of the problems that removable dentures or other substitutes may cause. Patients who replace all of their teeth with dental implants can feel more comfortable talking, smiling and eating.
