What is implant? Implant is an innovation in dental treatment to replace a missing tooth. Implant is a replacement of natural tooth root made of titanium. Implant is designed to fuse with the bone and absorb the chewing or grinding pressure. There are several types of implants and each type requires different technique and depends on the dental diagnosis. The location of implant is based on the size, bone density and direction of implant placement to ensure that it can be utilized as efficient as a natural tooth. The price of implant depends on the type of implant and the crown material.
There are several types of implants available by leading dental companies. At the Dentist Clinic, we are specialized in Bicon Dental Implant System from the USA, ITI Straumann from Switzerland and AstraTech from Sweden. After examination, the dentist will determine the most suitable technique for each specific case.
Benefits of implant include stable replacement tooth, natural chewing pressure. (It is recommended to avoid hard or sticky food to prevent damages to the crown), no trimming of adjacent teeth (in case of bridge), no irritation of removable denture, confidence in speech. Implant restoration types include single, multiple or all tooth replacement. Implant care is similar to natural dental care, that is brushing and flossing.
