Including Implant +Abutment + Crown
Dental Implants are the most advanced technique for replacing teeth.
Dental implant technology has advanced to the stage where nobody except a dentist can tell the difference between the replacement teeth and the teeth that were there previously. They work just as well, and look and feel the same.
What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant performs the same function as the root of a tooth. Implants are made of commercially pure titanium, a metal having the special property that it can remain in contact with living tissue without being rejected.
The implant is fitted into the jaw and provides a firm base for replacement teeth. Implants come in various shapes and sizes and can be customized to suit many different conditions in the jaw.
It is a flexible technology that can deal with a wide range of dental health problems.

Single Tooth Replacement
As a replacement for a single missing tooth, an implant can be placed instead of the root, with a crown taking the place of the tooth. The implant is fitted into the jaw and provides a firm base for the replacement tooth.
Multiple Teeth Replacement
Multiple implants can be inserted in a gap to replace missing teeth without disturbing the healthy adjacent teeth. Implant supported bridges can replace several missing teeth. Implants replace both the teeth and some of the roots.

Replacing All Teeth
Implant supported dentures are often the best choice if there are no natural teeth remaining, but the jawbone is healthy. The implants are placed in the bone, and the denture snaps on to them by special attachments.
The All-on-4 dental implant technique has been developed as a simple but comprehensive treatment for people who have failing teeth, have no teeth, wear dentures or who need full upper or lower restoration.

Advantages of dental implants
The dentist always tries to preserve natural teeth if possible. Sometimes, however, teeth have to be removed - and of course replaced.
The traditional forms of tooth replacement are dentures and bridges. They have the advantage of not requiring time to heal after treatment, and they are also cheaper in some cases.
Removable dentures rest on soft tissue over the bone, causing pressure which leads to bone deterioration. Since dentures cover large areas of the oral cavity, they can interfere with the sense of taste. And the fewer remaining teeth there are, the less stably dentures are held in place.
Bridges are supported by the teeth on each side, In order to fit the bridge, these teeth have to be ground down and capped, potentially reducing their lifetime. There may also be a need for root canal treatment. The bridge may also overload the supporting teeth, another source of risk
Dental implants offer the most biologically sound form of restoration. Unlike removable dentures, there is no sense of having a foreign body in your mouth, you can talk and chew with no worries, taste your food properly, and your teeth all look completely natural.
The jawbone also stays healthier without the pressure of dentures.The procedure may involve several steps and some healing time after the implant isinserted. Unlike bridges, however, implants need no support from your own teeth, which are left completely intact. Implants are also providing many more options for the final replacements.
