Dental implants are done by inserting the body of Implant in the Jaw bone which is usually made of Titanium . Depending on the quality of Bone and the patient's need , the implant body can be immediately restored with Implant Abutment and Crown or left to heal for 4/5 months to integrate and then restored . From beginning to end, dental implants in our practice take 3-6 months and 2-3 visits. . The Implant retained Teeth restoration is cost effective because , it minimizes the speed of Bone loss and prevents any damage to adjacemt teeth . If the missing teeth is repalced by Partial Denture , it causes decay and loosenes of the adjacent tooth holding the paretial denture. Other method of restoring missing teerth is by Fixed bridge. In order for fabricating Fixed Bridge , Abutment tooth to hold the Bridge needs to be grinded to place a crown and the missing tooth is joined to the abutment tooth with another Crown called Pontic. The Abutment tooth of Fixed Bridge almost always gets deacyed and develpoes Periodontal disease ( The reson being because Patient is not meticulous in cleaning under the Fixed bridge) . The decayed and Periodontally affected Abutment teeth at last needs to be extracted and the another bridge needs to be fabricated by grinding another set of present teeth . With Dental implant , the restoration last longer with proper care .
