An implant is an artificial replacement of the root of a natural tooth. It is a technology that has revolutionized dental treatment and provides tremendous results for the patient. In simple terms, it is a screw like structure made of titanium and requires a simple surgery to be placed within the bone. This is followed by replacing the lost tooth with a tooth colored crown, usually made of Ceramic, Zirconia or a fusion of metal and ceramic.
In all, an implant looks feels and functions just like a natural tooth and can be used to replace single or multiple teeth. The advantage of implants lies in the fact that people unhappy with “Loose teeth” or “loose dentures” can get ”fixed teeth”.
To begin with, certain advanced techniques are used for the assessment of the patient which may include a series of radiographs and the use of 3D Nobel guide system. After the preliminary analysis, a small surgery is done to get the implants in place. At Dr. Bhullar’s Dental care and Facial Surgery Centre we use some of the globally leading brands of implants which are popular world over. These are highly compatible with the human bone and in 90% of the people, last a lifetime.
