Whether it is due to tooth decay, gum disease or accidental causes, millions of people suffer from tooth loss. In the past, treatment options ranged from bridges to dentures. Today, dental implants provide a superior permanent option resembling natural teeth.

Benefits and Success Factors

Dental implants provide a natural solution to improving the appearance, as well as the functionality of teeth. Replacing missing teeth improve oral health by restoring chewing and speaking abilities, preventing jawbone deterioration and avoiding malocclusion. They also enhance one's smile and self-esteem.

Implants have a success rate of up to 98%. However, this may vary depending on one's medical condition, as well as the implants location in the jaw. Nonetheless, with the proper care they can last a lifetime.

Eligibility for Implants

In general terms, you are considered eligible for an implant, if health-wise; you are able to have a standard dental extraction or an oral surgery procedure, if you practice good oral hygiene, have regular check-ups, and if your gums and bone can hold the implant.

Your dentist will first conduct a thorough assessment as to whether your case is suitable for implants or not. You may require a more in-depth evaluation if you have a chronic disorder such as diabetes, periodontal (gum) disease, are a heavy smoker, or have had radiation therapy to the head or neck.

In all cases, your implant specialist will develop your individual treatment plan to establish the most suitable treatment for you.

Implant Process

A titanium post is fitted into the socket of the missing tooth. The bone then gradually grows around the titanium post securing it into the jaw. This process could take 6-12 weeks. Once the 'bonding' process is fully completed, your specialist will take an impression of the implant and your teeth.

This impression of your 'bite' will form the basis for your new tooth in the form of a permanent crown that is specifically colored to blend with your natural teeth. Because the implant is secured into your jawbone, you will feel no difference in terms of look and functionality as compared to a natural tooth.

* The latest in the field of dental implants is the instant dental implants procedure. The beauty of 'instant dental implant' lies in the fact that you can enjoy having your case planned, started and finished, and have a beautiful smile within a day or two with great results. (please refer to our Instant Implants fact sheet).

Caring for Your Implant(s)

Your implant(s) can last for years and even a lifetime, as long as you take good care of them and maintain a good oral hygiene routine. This includes brushing twice a day, flossing last thing at night and maintaining six-monthly dental check-ups.
