Implant Placement Planning
Replacing missing teeth permanently has never been easier using the latest in implant technologies.
Dental implants are made from titanium or titanium alloys as these materials have proven over the years to be well tolerated by bone. In fact, titanium has been chosen, as it is able to maintain a close union with bone in order to support replacement teeth.
There are many different implant systems available and when used in the correct application they can all deliver a highly reliable and predictable treatment option.
A dental implant is essentially a substitute for a natural tooth root and is commonly a modified cylinder shape. Each implant is placed into your jawbone in the location of the intended replacement tooth. The main aim during this placement procedure is to achieve immediate close contact with the surrounding bone. This creates an initial stability, which over time is steadily enhanced by further growth of bone into microscopic roughness on the implant surface itself.
In order to support replacement teeth, dental implants have a form of internal screw thread that allows a variety of components to be fitted. Once fitted, these components provide the foundation for a long-term support of crowns, bridges and dentures.
This exciting treatment option is available for patients who would like to regain their full function and self-confidence as implants offer a long-term option for replacing one or more missing teeth. Here at KR Dental we work closely with a team of specialists to provide implant treatment. You can be sure that your treatment is being provided by the most qualified team of specialists who are dedicated to your care and future function.
