Dental Implants

Dental Implants

The art of dental implant enables metal titanium post to get implanted surgically into the jaw to support a prosthetic tooth.  Implants also hold dentures and dental bridges in position.

Implants are mostly prefered as they resemble nature teeth in appearence and feel.

Implant crowns

Implant crowns are the finishing touches after dental implants have been installed. These devices are placed on the abutment fitted on the external facing end of the implant and they look just like real teeth.

Implant supported overdentures.

These are the kind of removable dentures connected to dental implants. The implants are fitted with a special mechanism that clicks with the dentures to lock them securely.

Basal implants

Biocortical implantology is a modern system which utilises the basal cortical portion of the jaw bone for the retention of the dental implants. This helps in the rehabilitation of partially or completely edentulous patients.
