Best Dental Implants Clinic in Ahmedabad
What is dental implant?
A natural tooth consists of a crown (the part you see above the gum), and the root (the part hidden under the gum). It is the root in the jawbone that actually holds the natural tooth in place. A dental implant is a small (8 to 16mm) man-made titanium fixture that serves as a replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth. It is most preferred solution to replace a missing tooth or teeth. Osseointegrated implants (All successful dental implants become rigidly fixed to the bone surrounding it, this osseointegration) are effective in over ninety-six percent of all patients treated.
When do we place dental implants?
We can use dental implants when you have very mobile or missing teeth or no teeth at all or to replace your denture with fixed teeth.
Why is it better than dental bridge?
To prepare a bridge we need to trim the neighboring teeth for support, which most of us don’t like. Also, to replace 1 tooth you will need 3 crowns (2 will act as support). In implants, we do not touch the neighboring teeth; only one tooth to replace the one which is missing.
What is the advantage of getting dental implants done at global dental clinic?
We have all the latest machineries for dental implants at all time in our own clinic. We do not rent it. (physiodispensor of satellac® , Sinus lift kit of Osstem® , and implant insertion kits of leading companies)
We are a team of implantologists who have had training in dental implants from reputed institutes (PGCOI, The only certified course by dental council of India in the whole country) rather than observe and learn approach.
We have a special training for immediate loading/ basal implants. So we can provide teeth within 3 days, without waiting for 3 months.
If there are more than one teeth missing, is it necessary that we put one implant for one tooth missing?
No. It depends on bone condition but one implant for one tooth is never necessary. For example we can have 16 teeth on about 8 implants.
What are the benefits of dental implants over removable dentures?
Improved Appearance When teeth are lost, ongoing shrinkage of the jawbone occurs making the face look older. Dental implants can slow or stop this process. Dental implants look and feel like your own natural teeth.
Improved Comfort Dental implants eliminate the pain and discomfort of removable full or partial dentures. Since dentures sit on top of the jawbone and gums, continuous shrinkage of the jaw bone alters the fit of the denture resulting in slipping or rocking of the dentures. Exposed nerves and irritation of the gum tissue may add to the discomfort.
Implant supported replacement teeth are like natural teeth because they are anchored securely to your jawbone.
Gum irritation and the pain of exposed nerves associated with conventional full or partial dentures are eliminated.
Improved Speech With ill fitting dentures, the teeth slip and slide around the mouth. The facial muscles become tense in an attempt to hold the teeth in place. This often results in mumbling, slurred speech or clicking noises.
Replacement teeth allow you to speak with confidence in a relaxed and natural tone.
Improved Self Esteem Considering all other benefits, dental implants can improve your self-esteem. You may feel better about yourself. You can regain nearly all the capabilities that most people have with natural teeth, giving you renewed confidence, and allowing you to enjoy life, do what everyone else is doing and not think twice about it.
Eat Better The average denture patient with an excellent fitting denture eats at 15-20% efficiency when compared to a person with natural teeth. As the jawbone shrinks, your chewing efficiency is reduced even more, making it difficult to eat certain foods. Dental implants can restore chewing efficiency comparable to that of natural teeth.
This allows you to eat your favorite foods with confidence and without pain, enjoy what everyone is eating and not think twice about it. A full upper denture covers the palate of the mouth and reduces the ability to taste foods. With dental implants, you can have the palate removed from your upper denture so you can taste and enjoy your food.
Convenience Dental implants can eliminate the numerous embarrassing inconveniences of removable partial and full dentures. You will eliminate the use of gooey denture adhesives that must be re-applied throughout the day. You will no longer need to cover your mouth when you laugh or smile, for fear that your teeth will pop out or fall down.
Protect Your Remaining Natural Teeth Dental implants are often more appropriate than a bridge for the replacement of one or more adjacent teeth. With conventional bridgework, the teeth surrounding missing teeth must be ground down. Dental implants often eliminate the need to modify these teeth, resulting in a conservative, yet esthetic restoration.
