A natural choice…

Implants are the closest alternative to a natural tooth root and will prevent your surrounding teeth from shifting out of place.

The procedure…

An implant is a sterile titanium rod that is inserted into the jaw bone for stability. The rod acts as a root for the crown or veneer to be secured into place. This rod bonds with the jaw bone over time, and improves strength whilst securing the alignment of your smile. On completion, you can smile wide with confidence and bite down as normal!   Benefits of Dental Implants:
  • Aesthetically pleasing – like natural teeth
  • Eliminate messy adhesives used with dentures
  • Maintain facial and bone structure
  • Functional – bite down naturally and eat and chew as usual
  • Durable – Lasting for 10 or more years
  • Smile with confidence

  • If you have suffered facial radiotherapy
  • If you have an allergy to antibiotics or medicines

Dental implants provide the support to implant-retained dentures if required any in cases of the whole dental arch teeth replacement procedure. Dental implants are ultimate and lifetime restorations which improve your healthy and active lifestyle. Dental implants enhance your perfect lively smile. 

Q. How much do dental implants cost?

The estimate should be requested before the treatment following a proper preliminary examination.

Q. What are the advantages of Dental Implants? 

A. Dental implants aids in saving your adjacent teeth and ensure no further alveolar bone loss. Dental implants last a lifetime and maintain the empty spaces in the mouth cavity left by the lost teeth. Dental implants assist in completely restoring the structure, functions, esthetics, and phonetics. Dental implants yield no pain and discomfort. Dental implants improve your overall health and active lifestyle.

Q. Which material is used to make Dental Implants?

Zirconium can also be employed for constructing dental implants. Dr. Sonika Sharma, your own restorative dentist at Comprehensive Dental Care, will guide you properly according to your needs and requirements after proper examination.

Q. What is the success rate of the Dental Implants?

A. The success rate of dental implants varies from patient to patient like all surgical procedures.

For a patient with good health, food eating habits, and a healthy lifestyle, the success rate of dental implants has been predictably reported above 90-95%.  However, the rate of failure is recorded very low.
