Many patients in Dubai with dental issues such as tooth loss or missing teeth are looking for a quick solution to their dental woes and will opt for the ultimate in cosmetic procedures, dental implants. We, at AMDC are focused on making surprising and beautiful improvements to smiles that need it the most.
Dental implants are commonly considered restorations that are used to replace missing teeth. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into the jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason. While most patients may consider partial dentures or dental bridges to replace missing teeth, they may find that there are a number of benefits to choosing dental implants as opposed to other types of dental restorations.
The many benefits include,
Improved appearance. Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth. And because they are designed to fuse with bone, they become permanent.
. With poor-fitting dentures, the teeth can slip within the mouth causing you to mumble or slur your words. Dental implants allow you to speak without the worry that teeth might slip.
Easier eating. Sliding dentures can make chewing difficult. Dental implants function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods with confidence and without pain.
Improved self-esteem. Dental implants can give you back your smile and help you feel better about yourself.
Improved oral health. Dental implants don't require reducing other teeth, as a tooth-supported bridge does. Because nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, more of the natural tooth is left intact, improving long-term oral health. Individual implants also allow easier access between teeth, improving oral hygiene.
Bone growth stimulation. When an individual loses a natural tooth, the bone underneath the gums may begin to deteriorate and crumble. By placing a dental implant, the process of osseointegration occurs. This is the process where the bone growth is stimulated in the area where there is a missing tooth, this helps to make the bone stronger and keep the dental implant in its proper place over a period of time.
High success rate. Dental implants in Dubai are extremely reliable and has a very high success rate. Our dentists find that dental implants work perfectly to enhance a patient's smile and are the "platinum standard" in cosmetic restorations.
Long Lasting. There is no doubt that dental implants are one of the most successful restoration options in the dental world and they are long lasting as well. Even if the cost is too high, the long term benefits of having healthy teeth for the rest of your life cannot be compared or valued with any other type of dental restoration.
Conventional. Other types of dental restorations may require healthy and natural teeth to be altered, so that cosmetic procedures such as a dental bridge can be placed. There are instances, that dental bridges can affect and alter the surrounding teeth as healthy tooth enamel is removed to bond them in place. Our dentists will make sure to minimize any damage to healthy teeth when placing tooth implants, while proceeding with the restoration so that the patient can smile with confidence. Conventional ways to address missing teeth include the use of dentures, but today, dental implants are the most preferred option, especially for full mouth rehabilitation as it is a standalone restoration that have no requirement for any sort of support for surrounding teeth to be placed.
Time saver. Dental implants don't require multiple visits, only a few visits are needed to make sure you walks away with a million dollar smile. This is the perfect options for those who are busy and cannot take time off work for a long period of time to rest and recover from a surgery.
Low maintenance. Dental implants are often low maintenance, and should be looked after just like natural teeth, with regular brushing, flossing and dental visits.
Frequently answered questions on Dental Implants
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots used to replace a missing tooth or teeth in a person. Dental implants are inserted into the jawbone during a minor surgical procedure. Once the dental implant has been placed in the jawbone it needs to fuse with the bone for several months before a permanent crown can be placed. Dental Implants in Dubai are the most preferred, safe and fast method of replacing a missing tooth or teeth.
How are dental implants placed?
Dental implants are placed into the jawbone after our dentist makes a small incision at the site where the tooth is missing or is being extracted due to damage. Thereafter, the placement of screw retained, fixed acrylic and temporary tooth implants are placed. The gum tissue is replaced over the implant and a protective cover screw is placed on top for healing. After up to six months of healing, the dentist uncovers the implant and attaches an abutment, which holds the crown or tooth-like replacement of the implant. In some cases, the abutment may be placed at the same time the implant is placed.
Who is a good candidate for dental implants?
Anyone who has lost a tooth or teeth for whatever reason can normally be a candidate for dental implants. The only real requirement is that adequate bone structure is available in the jaw to support any implants, and the gum tissue has to be healthy and clear of any periodontal disease. However, our dentist will decide whether or not, you are a good candidate for dental implants after a complete evaluation of your dental and overall medical health.
