  1. 1. 1 | P a g e Dental Implants-Replacement of a missing tooth What are Implants? These are highly Biocompatible Titanium posts/ Screws placed directly into the jaw bone which is designed to create a stable foundation forever. There are 2 parts to a dental implant which stimulate the strong holding ability of the real tooth root. The main part of the dental implant is embedded in the jaw bone for an effect that is vastly stronger than the original tooth root. The second part of the dental implantispostthat protrudesabove the jaw bone andgum that will simulate the toothcrown. Why replace missing teeth?  A gap betweenyourteeth,if obviouswhenyousmileorspeakisa cosmeticconcern.  Missingteethmayaffectyourspeech.  When a tooth is removed, the biting force on the remaining teeth begins to change& induces more than usual pressure on them. As the bite changes to compensate for the lost tooth, there is a risk of extra pressure and discomfort on the jaw joints, which may lead to Tempromandular Disorder also knownas (TMD)  If a missing tooth is not replaced the surrounding teeth can shift in their positions. Harmful plaque and tartar can collect in new hard to reach places created by the shifting teeth. Overtime this may leadto the toothdecayand periodontal disease.  Bone losscan occur inthe regionof the missingtooth.

INDICATION OF DENTAL IMPLANTS Single Tooth Implant:-It is a free standing unit and does not involve treatment to adjacent teeth thereby maintaining their strength and integrity. Dental implants may be used to support a bridge when several teeth are missing. An implant supported bridge does not require support from adjacent teeth. If you are missing all of your teeth, an implant supported Denture can replace the missing teeth and some of the tooth roots. Since the dental implants integrate with the jaw bone, an implant supported denture tends to be more stable as there is no problemof slippage and discomfort. What are the procedures involved? The surgery can commence after thorough diagnosis and treatment planning. A recipient site of the same size and shape as the implant is created in the jaw bone with drilling instruments. The implant is inserted into the site prepared. Usually a healing period of 3 to 6 months is required for the jaw bone to fuse &integrate with the implant. The jaw bone has different densities in different areas, the denser the bone the shorter the healing period: After this healing period the Crowns, Bridges or Dentures are constructed over the implant and the treatment is completed.
