Dental Implants

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are replacement tooth roots. They are made up of very high grade titanium screws. Dental implants provide a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth.

If you've lost teeth due to trauma or periodontal disease, it may still be possible to replace them with dental implants. There are so many advantages to replacing one or all of your missing teeth with dental implants that this treatment has become the therapy of choice. Even if you've lost supporting bone, many times it's possible to use a bone graft to restore the bone and then place the implants later.

Why we should not ignore missing or damaged teeth?

What are the advantages of dental implants?

Improved appearance

Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. And because they are designed to fuse with bone, they become permanent.

Improved speech

With poor-fitting dentures, the teeth can slip within the mouth causing you to mumble or slur your words. Dental implants allow you to speak without the worry that teeth might slip.

Improved comfort

Because they become part of you, implants eliminate the discomfort of removable dentures.

Easier eating

Sliding dentures can make chewing difficult. Dental implants function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods with confidence and without pain.

Improved self-esteem

Dental implants can give you back your smile and help you feel better about yourself.

Improved oral-health

Dental implants don't require reducing other teeth, as a tooth-supported bridge does. Because nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, more of your own teeth are left intact, improving long-term oral health. Individual implants also allow easier access between teeth, improving oral hygiene.


Implants are very durable and will last many years. With good care, many implants last a lifetime.


Removable dentures are just that; removable. Dental implants eliminate the embarrassing inconvenience of removing dentures, as well as the need for messy adhesives to keep them in place.

How are dental implants done?

Mukha Facial Surgery & Dental Implant Center

Having assessed the quality and quantity of the underlying bone, the faciomaxillary surgeon will place the implants into the jaws. This surgical procedure is usually done under local anaesthesia. The healing time of about 3 to 6 months is then given to allow the implant to integrate into the jaw bone. In the third stage, the prosthodontist will fix the crown and bridge or the denture to the implants.

How successful are dental implants?

Success rates of dental implants vary, depending on where in the jaw the implants are placed but, in general, dental implants have a success rate of up to 95 to 98%. With proper care dental implants can last a lifetime. However Smoking, uncontrolled diabetes, severe osteoporosis and other major medical problems will reduce the chances of implant integration into the jaw bone and success.
