WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS
A dental implant is a surgical component that is inserted into the jawbone which acts as a substitute for tooth root that is no longer present in the mouth. These fixtures can then be used to fix a permanent single tooth, group of teeth of dentures in the mouth.
We do an in-depth detailed thorough discussion with the patient to help them choose a suitable implant technique and procedure best suited for their individual clinical, functional and aesthetic needs.
We offer all the major dental implant systems or brands at our clinic!

What are the other treatment options instead of dental implants
Although the intital cost involved in the implant placement procedure seems to be higher than other available choices like bridges or partial dentures, but benefits in the long run are much more.
1.First of all, it saves your adjacent natural healthy teeth from tooth shaving or grinding thus maintaining their health.
2.Also when properly placed and maintained, these implants can last you your lifetime where as the bridges cannot last you your lifetime. The average lifespan clinically of a good bridge is 10.2 years which means you will need to replace it after a number of years.
