Dental implants are artificial tooth replacements used to counter tooth loss. They hold a crown, bridge, or denture just like roots hold natural teeth in place. Many dentists consider implants to be one of the greatest advancements in dentistry since they truly are “the next best thing to your natural teeth.” Unlike a traditional plate or bridge, dental implants are actually anchored to your jaw. After integration with the jawbone, the crown, bridge or denture is then attached to the implants. This provides much greater stability for more effective eating, speaking and smiling!. The procedure is categorized as a form of prosthetic (artificial replacement) dentistry, though it also falls into the category of cosmetic dentistry as well.
Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason. They look and feel very natural such that you may even forget about your loss of tooth/teeth. If you have one or more teeth missing and wish to eat your favorite foods, increase your chewing ability, and improve your appearance, speech, and self-esteem, then you are a candidate for dental implants.
The conventional dental implant (two / three-piece crestal implants) is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge, which requires more complex procedures and is time-consuming and also the relation between the root portion and the abutment portion can present problems due to higher mechanical stress under oblique loading.
The Single-dental-implant also is known as Immediate Load Basal implants or Simpladent Implant helps the implantologist in treating a wide variety of cases that cannot be attempted with the conventional two / three-piece crestal implants. These high-tech prostheses are actually more tooth-saving than traditional bridgework since implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support. As per the available scientific evidence, natural teeth absorb a great amount of biting pressure – approximately 540 lbs/sq. inch. On the contrary, those who are wearing dentures can hardly absorb more than 10 percent of this pressure. However, dental implants can withstand 450 lbs./sq. inch biting pressure without any problems, whatsoever.
Dental implants are made from surgical-grade titanium alloy to exacting specifications. The alloy is absolutely compatible with human body tissues. For long-term maintenance being a single piece, the strength provided by the implant is excellent and there is no separate root portion and abutment portion which makes it very simple.
Smile Centre India routinely perform advanced immediate load strategic implant procedures in patients with complete/partial loss of teeth. The distinct advantage of strategic implantology procedures (a combination of basal and crestal implant procedures) is that they facilitate the fixation of teeth within 72 hours of implantation. They also permit implant placement soon after extractions in a single sitting. In 98% of cases (including the so-called "no-bone" cases, there will be no need for bone grafting/augmentation/sinus lifts, etc. as the implants are uniquely designed to take support from the available native bone of the patient. Their unique design permits successful placement of these implants in smokers, diabetic patients as well as patients with a host of medically compromising conditions.
Smile Centre India strictly follow the principles and protocols of the International Implant Foundation, Germany and Smile Centre India is one of the very few centers in India offering Advanced, Immediate Loading dental implants of Dr.Ihde Dental, Germany and Simpladent, Switzerland. Two of the Clinical Masters and Mentors of the Implant Foundation, Dr. Prasanth Pillai and Dr Bobby Antony, are from our center. These implants are unique in that they are immediate loading (teeth are fixed by the third day) and are also successful in almost all situations where conventional dental implants (the two / three piece) do not work.
