Further Dental Implant Information
Dental Implants are often referred to as your third set of teeth. The Dental Implant allows for total replacement of teeth that are missing or need to be removed with a natural looking real tooth that will not decay! Dental Implants themselves are the titanium posts, which sit in the jaw where a tooth is missing.
The bone around dental implants love the dental implants treated titanium surface, and connects onto the surface creating a strong foundation during the first two to six month period following placement. This process is similar to the healing of a broken bone. Small posts are then attached into the dental implant. These posts provide stable anchors for the visible part of the tooth, most commonly a Porcelain Crown Replacement tooth.
Dental implants help to preserve facial bone structure, preventing bone ‘atrophy’ loss or deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing. When dentures are worn, their pressure, pushed onto the gums will accelerate the loss of bone.
Dental Implants are the answer to a missing tooth, a few missing teeth, or to missing all your teeth. Common success rates are consistently higher than 95% in properly screened candidates. (Biohorizons Implants) Following successful finishing of the Dental Implant’s tooth, Typically we see greater than a 97% success rate for Dental Implants placed five years ago following their initial healing phase.
The actual Dental Implant that goes into your mouth is made of grade four titanium, machined to aerospace tolerances, fully packaged in a super-clean environment and are fully sterile. Implants are 100% biocompatible with the body, and can not be rejected, however in a small percentage of cases, they may fail to integrate. If an implant fails to integrate, then this is determined before the top of the tooth is finished, and in these instances, the implant will be replaced free of charge in non-smokers who have attended their recommended appointments.
