Dental Implant Treatment
Dental Implantology is a branch of dentistry dealing with dental implants. A dental implant is a rigid metallic structure that resembles a tooth root. It is inserted into the jaw bone ( upper or lower ) in place of a missing tooth/teeth. The rigid fixture is usually made up of metal; Titanium/ titanium alloys.
Difference between dental implants and bridges.
|SNO||DENTAL IMPLANTS||TOOTH SUPPORTED BRIDGES|
|1.||Single missing tooth = one implant and cap. ( natural teeth remain untouched)||Single missing tooth = 2 natural teeth will be ground and you will receive three caps ( bridge).|
|2.||Cost of one implant = Cost of one Zirconia bridge for a single missing tooth.||More economical ( metal-ceramic bridges)|
|3.||Best esthetics||Slightly compromised|
|4.||Easy maintenance||Multiple caps therefore more maintenance.|
|5.||Long-lasting||May require replacement after a few years.|
Dental Implant Cost
The dental implant cost may worry some patients; however, implants are not too heavy on your pocket. There are multiple parts to each procedure which actually leads to a perception of implants being expensive. It is critical to understand that if a missing tooth is not replaced with an implant, sooner or later the adjacent teeth start shifting and jawbone loss also starts which ultimately would turn out to be much more expensive to manage than a single dental implant.
