Dental health is one the most important thing in our body. It may cause many problems like infections, bad smells, or even lack of confidence. You can easily realize a person that hides his/ her mouth while talking or smiling. If you are one of them, you can overcome this with us. You will never suffer from missing teeth anymore. We are ready to assist you to overcome this!
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implant surgery is a procedure that replaces tooth roots with metal, screwlike posts and replaces damaged or missing teeth with artificial teeth that look and function much like real ones. Dental implant surgery can offer a welcome alternative to dentures or bridgework that doesn’t fit well and can offer an option when a lack of natural teeth roots don’t allow building denture or bridgework tooth replacements.
How dental implant surgery is performed depends on the type of implant and the condition of your jawbone. Dental implant surgery may involve several procedures. The major benefit of implants is solid support for your new teeth — a process that requires the bone to heal tightly around the implant. Because this bone healing requires time, the process can take many
When To Get Dental Implants?
In most cases, anyone healthy enough to undergo a routine dental extraction or oral surgery can be considered for a dental implant.
Patients should have healthy gums and enough bone to hold the implant. They also must be committed to good oral hygiene and regular dental visits. Heavy smokers, people suffering from uncontrolled chronic disorders — such as diabetes or heart disease — or patients who have had radiation therapy to the head/neck area need to be evaluated on an individual basis.

Dental Implants Cases :
Dental implants are used to replace existing dentures or missing teeth but it may be necessary due to the slow but progressive resorption (dissolution) of the underlying (supporting) jawbone and to protect the adjacent teeth. No treatment process is done to the other teeth.
If you are missing several teeth, implant-supported bridges can replace them.
If you are missing all of your teeth, full implant treatment can replace them.
Different Methods of Dental Implants
There may be implant alternatives that could work well depending on the strength of your jawbone, and your specific situation. These types may be used instead of or in addition to traditional types of dental implants. Common types of dental implant methods include:
Immediate Load Dental Implants (also known as Teeth in a Day):
Immediate load implants allow you to walk out of your appointment with a full set of teeth without the delay typically required for healing. The teeth you get initially are temporary until the implant heals and you have the healthy bone contact to support a permanent prosthetic. This can be a great way to get your smile back as soon as possible.
All-on-4 (or 5 or 6):
This type is ideal for people who have lost most or all of their teeth due to decay or gum disease. It allows you to place implants without bone grafting by using a set of temporary teeth placed the same day or very soon thereafter.
Single Tooth Implants:
This is great for those who have one or a few missing teeth. A single implant can fill in the gap and create a seamless look and perfectly functioning teeth.
If you have several missing teeth creating larger gaps, but still don’t need a full mouth replacement, you can use multiple implants in only the areas with large gaps.
Two-Stage Dental Implants: This is the typical process for the types of dental implants described above. The first day involves a surgical procedure to place the implant into the jawbone. Several months later, a minor surgery is performed to attach an abutment and tooth (crown).
Single-Stage Implants: This is similar to two-stage implants, but the implant healing cap remains visible so the abutment and temporary restoration can be attached without the need for surgery to expose the head (top of the implant).
Mini Implants: These are small or narrow diameter implants that may be placed through less-invasive techniques to stabilize a lower denture. Mini implants can prevent the spontaneous “floating” or shifting of a lower denture. The proper position of the top of the mini implant is most important so there is space for your denture! The opportunity to get the replacement teeth right where they belong for your smile should not be lost by mini implants that are too tall or poorly positioned, nor should the denture base holding the teeth be too thin or too thick in critical places
Types of Dental Implants
Mini Implant: Mini dental implants are half the size of traditional dental implants, about half the diameter. Dental implants are produced from non-allergic or non-toxic titanium.
Zygomatic implants: Zygomatic implants are like a traditional implant but they are inserted through the alveolar crest and maxillary sinus involving the zygomatic bone for anchorage (they are longer than a traditional implant).
