Cosmetic Dental implants function as artificial teeth anchored to the jawbone.
They are made from a special alloy knows as Tivolloy.This alloy consists of 90% titanium, 6% aluminum, and 4% vanadium.Tivolloy is a self-passivating substance, which means it is able to protect itself against corrosion.Tivolloy is a very safe metal to use in the human mouth, and once it is implanted in the jawbone, the bone itself adapts to the implant and begins to grow around it.It takes about 3-6 months for this adaptive growth to be completed, but once the artificial root has been completely secured within the bone, it can provide the base for a cosmetic dental crown which will create an entirely new, fully functioning replacement tooth as good, if not better, than the natural one it replaced.
Cosmetic dental implants are ideal for people who have lost teeth and who are considering fixed bridgework as an alternative to removable dentures.Because they help preserve teeth, gum, and bones much more effectively than bridges, and because they look more natural, almost any healthy individual who needs replacement teeth can be fitted with them.
Cosmetic Dental Implants offer benefits that other tooth replacement treatments cannot offer.
Considering that implants have a 98% success rate for lower teeth, and a 91% success rate for upper teeth, it is not surprising for many of our patients to say they feel they never lost a tooth.Implant dentistry offers three very important benefits to those who have lost one or more teeth.
1.They look natural.
At face value, people cannot tell the difference between cosmetic dental implants and natural teeth. This is because implants integrate into the actual bon, helping to prevent bone loss and gum recession in the process.
2.They preserve tooth quality
Cosmetic Dental Implants do not touch or alter adjacent teeth.
3.Improve Self Confidence
Implants do slip or make not make clicking sounds like dentures, so there will be no embarrassment during eating.
Cosmetic Dental Implants are installed in the mouth in a three-step process.
1.The implant is placed in an area of sufficient bone.It normally takes 3-6 months to heal while the bone adapts to the implant and integrates it into the jaw.
2.After the healing process is complete a top piece called an abutment is place over the implant to act as a base for the crown.
3.A porcelain crown is then placed over the abutment and implant.
Almost anyone in good health can be a candidate.
There are a few medical conditions where implants cannot be used if the patients general health is not adequate to withstand the procedure.Individuals suffering from periodontal disease should receive treatment for that condition first.Also, for implants to effectively take root, there must be adequate structure remaining in the jaw itself to accept and integrate them into the bone.
Specific medical conditions that are poor risks for implant success are uncontrolled diabetes, alcoholism, and patients on high doses of corticosteroids or other immunosuppressive drug therapy.Your dentist can determine if any medical condition or treatment will affect the outcome of the procedure.
