When teeth are missing, oral implants can be ideal artificial teeth which integrate with the rest of the jaw. The main advantage is that cutting or damaging the adjacent teeth is not needed when compared with the other options of dental prosthesis while providing excellent strength and support. The implants can also be used to support dentures so your dentures will never be loose.

Dental implants can be used to support a number of dental prostheses, including crowns, implant-supported bridges or dentures. Unlike traditional dentures, the implant supported dentures are very retentive and stable.
Digital dental implant
With the use of digital radiograph, Cone beam CT, and scanner, your teeth and bone can be accurately analysed with computer technology. The dental implants can be precisely placed to suit your individual needs. The whole procedure is fast, comfortable and extremely accurate.
The whole process can take from three to sixmonths. First, the dentist places the dental implant, which is left for three to six months to heal and integrate with the jawbone. During the healing period, you are given a temporary prosthesis until the permanent crown is put in place. The procedure chosen depends on several factors, such as your dental health, the number of teeth involved and which teeth are replaced. These factors will also determine the total number of visits to the dentist throughout the treatment period.
