Dental
Implants Stable, Realistic & Long-Lasting Teeth Replacements

What is
Dental Implant?

Dental Implant are metal posts or frames that are surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath your gums. Once in place, they allow your dentist to mount replacement teeth onto them.

How does Dental Implants works?

Fixture

The first step of a dental implant is to surgically place a fixture into the jaw bone. The fixture is made of titanium and has a cylindrical, screw-shaped design. As you heal, the fixture will fuse with your natural jawbone, with the two growing together to form a strong and long-lasting foundation, for your replacement teeth.

This healing process can take weeks to months while you proceed with your everyday life.

Abutment

Once the implant bonds with the jawbone, a small connector – called an abutment – is placed on top of the dental implant to connect the implant to the replacement tooth or teeth.

Prosthesis

The prosthesis is the dental work that is done on top of the abutment, such as a crown, bridge, or denture. This piece is cemented or screwed into the abutment if the prosthesis is a crown or bridge, or snapped onto the abutment if the prosthesis is a denture.



While the resulting dental implant looks and acts like your natural tooth, you can see why you want to find a MOH accredited implant specialist to perform the procedure.

Types of Dental Implants
Single tooth Implant

If you are missing a single tooth, one implant and a crown can replace it. A dental implant replaces both the lost natural tooth and its root.

All on 4 Implant

People who lost all their teeth are usually concerned about a list of problems from the basic function to chew to self-esteem issues.

The innovative All-on-4® treatment utilizes four dental implants for a permanent set of teeth, fully restoring individuals’ dental function and appearance in a short amount of time.

Products Systems Available

We use premium/ reputable implant brands consisting of: Nobel, Bicon, Straumann, Astratech.

To ensure high standards of clinical quality, dental materials are evaluated stringently before being adopted for patients’ use.

For instance, implant systems must be accompanied by well-documented evidence of rigorous research and efficacy in controlled-studies, before they can be considered for use.

The systems selected are from reputable companies which devote considerable resources towards research and development (R&D) and provide good after-sales service. This is especially crucial because implants and its components are expected to function for many years.

Our Dental Implant Experience

Implant treatment at Parkway Dental Practice incorporates the use of well-documented techniques and cutting-edge technology. Currently, teeth scheduled for extraction or replacement are first evaluated for bone volume and quality by a specialist. Consequently, measures such as bone grafting and socket preservation procedures can be taken to minimize bone loss as the extraction site.

Our surgeons also have access to three-dimensional imaging and treatment planning systems; these will prove valuable for high-risk cases whereby close proximity between the tooth and vital structures such as nerves and vessels are present. These imaging systems also aid in the assessment of available bone at the site, which translates to better planning, increased accuracy and heightened patient safety during implant placement.
