Want to replace a missing tooth with ease using dental implants in India ?

A set of beautiful teeth makes for a scintillating smile which is an immediate confidence booster. Unfortunately a large number of people suffer from various dental problems making them unable to smile with confidence. Modern dentistry with its amazing technological advancements has a solution for almost every dental problem. Thus a visit the dentist can go a long way towards restoring one’s confidence.

Sometimes teeth are so badly damaged due to either decay or trauma that it can’t be safe. In such cases the patient loses the tooth and has a gap which leads to misalignment of the teeth and variations in the bite. This is where the role of dental implants in India is important. Implants, as the term suggests, is a small device that is placed with in the gum and into the jaw as the replacement for the root of the missing tooth. The implant is placed anywhere between four to six months prior to the placement of the crown and it fuses with the bone in this time period. Because it is placed exactly like a real tooth an implant is much more effective than a denture or bridge. It is a strong replacement and functions just like a real tooth.

In the case of a single tooth implant it is a process that is completed over several months. First an incision is made in the gum through which a hole is drilled into the jaw bone. The implant is placed within the bone and the incision is closed. After five or six months when the implant has fused with the bone, the incision is reopened and an abutment is screwed into the implant. A metal collar is placed around the abutment to prevent the gum from pushing in. Then a temporary crown is placed once the collar is removed. After few days this is replaced by a high quality crown that replaces the missing tooth. Thus a brand new tooth with the same capabilities as the old one is placed within the mouth.

When it comes to implants there are basically two types of implants. The first is the more common one, that is the one that is placed within the jaw bone and this is also called the endosteal implant. These are usually shaped like screws, cylinders and plates and are very common. The other type called subperiosteal is placed within the gum but just above the jaw bone. This is used in people who may have very little bone support or even used in those who are not interested in an invasive technique like the regular implant.
