Dental Implant Dubai? We have all the answers!

Dental implants become necessary when there is tooth loss due a variety of reasons. Some of these reasons can be trauma, tooth decay, infection or severe gum disease. In the past, before recent cutting edge technology and advancements, a person had to settle for dentures or bridges to address any missing teeth. Since the invention of dental implants by Professor Branemark in Sweden, it has grown to become one of the safest and most widely used treatments for the replacement of missing teeth.

What is a dental implant?

A tooth implant is fixed into the jawbone where it fuses with the bone and becomes the new “root” for a missing tooth. The material used in the dental implant is predominantly titanium which is accepted by the body and therefore allows full integration with the jawbone with almost zero rejection by the body. There is an approximate dental implant success rate of 98%.

Dental implants have many benefits over other alternatives:

  • They are permanent and you don’t have to remove them to keep them clean like you would in the case of regular dentures. Dental implants function as your natural teeth would.
  • Improved oral hygiene is achieved because you can brush and floss between them as you would with natural teeth.
  • Eating becomes easier because you can now eat your favourite foods without worrying about dentures that may slide off and cause you pain or discomfort.
  • The dental implants completely fuse with your bone improving your comfort level in a manner that cannot be achieved by dentures.
  • The tooth implants are hard-wearing and if maintained properly can last for life.
  • Aesthetically dental implants give a more natural look and feel to the mouth.
  • Speech is easier because there are no dentures slipping off while you talk.
  • No abrasions or irritations develop on the gum because of poorly fitted dentures.

The dental implant procedure:

Our highly experienced specialist implantologist will develop an individual treatment plan depending on your requirements.
  1. The titanium tooth implant; otherwise known as an implant fixture is inserted into the bone socket where the tooth is missing, under local anasthesia. It takes between 8-12 weeks for the implant to fuse with your jawbone as it heals. This serves as the “anchor” for the new tooth.
  2. Once the implant has healed into the jawbone and is stable, an abutment is used to connect the implant to the rest of the mouth and a scan or impression is taken.
  3. A crown is fabricated and fixed onto the abutment. The crowns are usually made of different types of ceramics, meaning they are aesthetic and look and feel like natural teeth. Even the colour will match your other teeth so that it appears as natural as possible.
You can treat your dental implants as you would your natural teeth. Regular brushing, flossing and dental check-ups will ensure long lasting tooth implants.
