Dental Implants are one of our specialities at Oral Design.
In order to have dental implants you need to have healthy gums and your jawbone needs to be strong enough to hold the implants, if your gums are not healthy then you may require hygiene treatment prior to the implant procedure to make sure your gums are healthy and ready.
After surgery to insert the implant, your jawbone will fuse with the Titanium rod. This takes several months. Dentures, crowns or bridges can be attached to the implant to replace your missing teeth.
A single implant can support one or more replacement teeth. To replace all your teeth would require at least four implants in your upper jaw and between two and six in your lower jaw. If an implant has a screw-thread on its outer surface it can be screwed into position.
In order to support replacement teeth, dental implants normally have some form of internal screw thread or post space that allows a variety of components to be fitted. Once fitted, these components provide the foundation for long-term support of crowns, bridges or dentures.
Implants are usually made of Titanium. If you look after your implants properly and maintain good oral hygiene, they should last for the rest of your life.
