Undergoing a dental implant is the best treatment for tooth loss available today. The other (and older) options are dentures (which are artificial sets of teeth that fit into your gums; generally used in place of multiple missing teeth) and bridges (which use adjacent teeth as anchors for holding onto gums; generally used in place of one or two missing teeth).
It is a well-known fact that nearly three in four of all adults lose at least one permanent tooth before they reach the age of 35. The causes of teeth loss can include tooth decay, accidents or gum diseases. By the time you reach the age of 75, there is a one-in-four chance that you have lost all your god-given teeth.
Dental implants are long-term teeth replacements that don't need to hold on to your gums or affect adjoining teeth for support. At Dr. Bhalla's super-specialty dental clinic, India's best dentist surgically fits these tooth implants on your jawbone with the utmore care and precision. Dental implants of the highest quality titanium naturally fuse with the jawbone over the next few months. There is no chance of your so-called false teeth coming out or making noises that reveal their synthetic nature. Further, there is minimal risk of bone loss due to the blending of the implant with your jaw.
Dental implants are made up of the following parts:
As recently as the 1990s, fixed bridges and removable dentures were the only hope that people who had lost their teeth had to eat, talk and smile. However, these were not always perfect or even appropriate solutions to missing teeth. Bridges may affect adjacent healthy teeth and cause bone loss beneath the gums. They are also susceptible to recurrence of tooth decay. Removable dentures could slip will eating or speaking. They had to be kept handy at all times and replaced periodically depending on their quality. On the contrary, dental implants can last a lifetime with nominal care.
Dental implants are not ideal for growing children, as the size and shape of the jawbone would vary till adulthood. However, there is a dental implant solution for all adults, regardless of the number of teeth one is missing. Dental implants can be done even for patients with existing medical conditions like high blood pressure or diabetes. Dental implants are routinely successful in people with high level of tooth decay or gum disease as well as smokers.
The first dental implants Dr. Bhalla placed over 15 years ago are still performing beautifully for his patients spread across the world. His success rate for dental implants is over 99%. People from India, US, Canada, UK and Australia are proud to have made the right choice for their dental health. While dentures often make you look and feel older than you are and have the potential to cause social awkardness, tooth implants give you a secure, active and enjoyable lifestyle, the ability to eat whatever you want whenever you want, and a renewed sense of self-esteem in other words, the license to live better.
