Dental Implants & Restorative Dentistry
"YOUR SMILE COULD BE YOUR GREATEST ASSET"
The smile is of paramount importance in how we present ourselves to others. Good-looking teeth can take years off your appearance and improve your confidence. That is why the results of restorative dentistry and dental implants in particular are often compared to cosmetic surgery.
We live in a highly competitive, youth oriented culture. The effect of losing our teeth probably worries us even more today than previously.
Unfortunately, few of us are yet aware of the modern and permanent solution to tooth loss: DENTAL IMPLANTS. The concept of dental implants is a simple yet effective solution to the problem of lost teeth. Dental implant has been used for decades. By now, many dentists and dental surgeons have gained an excellent understanding of the complexities of implant placement techniques.
Dentures and removable bridges may cause problems, for example, they can be loose and unstable. Whether patients have lost all of their teeth or just a few, dental implants are an ideal solution providing a dental replacement that works and is aesthetically pleasing.
How will I benefit from artificially-implanted teeth?
Aside from the aesthetic benefit of practically having new teeth, artificial implants will allow you to enjoy experiences that you will otherwise find difficult engaging in if you used dentures or removable dentures.
Replacing missing natural teeth
Implants are an effective, secure and permanent solution to the problem of missing teeth. Over decades, dentists and manufactures have developed implant technology that successfully recreates the function, comfort and look of their natural counterparts.
The treatment can be carried out for a person who has lost one, a few or all of their pearly whites. Ceramic crowns and bridges can be fixed to implants placed into your jaw bone , which fuses to your jawbone over time. This serves as the perfect replacement for any missing tooth.
The feel and appearance of the artificial implant is as though the patient had normal, natural pearly whites in their mouth. Unlike bridges, they are not anchored to adjacent teeth and so do not carry any risk of affecting the existing dental structure.
Another benefit of having artificial implants is the prevention of bone shrinkage. When there are gaps in the dental structure, the jawbone naturally begins to shrink as it is absorbed back into the body. With artificial implants, bone shrinkage can be reduced and even prevented.
Why choose dental implants over other options?
As our life span increases, the need for a reliable type of permanent dental replacement system becomes very important to our overall health.
Badly fitted dentures can cause mouth ulcers and discomfort when you eat. It can even lead to jawbone loss. With implant technology, individuals can benefit from replacements that are both functional and aesthetically sound. You can chew in comfort and smile with confidence.
In addition, they require no special maintenance apart from your usual dental hygiene routine of brushing and flossing. Artificial replacements will function similar to your natural set of teeth. They are supported by your jawbone. The crown will serve as the hard surface for chewing, which will be visible above the gum line, while the implants act like the roots of the artificial replacements.
Through this system, successful dental implants become firmly embedded in the jaw.
Anatomy of dental implants
A toothimplantis really a very simple metal screw, which is designed to thread into the bone of the jaw and to allow for the attachment of a prosthetic crown at top. Implantsare made of medical – grade titanium or titanium alloy.
With our same daydental implantsin Dubai, a certified dentistwill place the artificial replacement in a small hole in the bone, which is prepared as part of the placement procedure. The bone will fuse to the implant over a short period of time. Once this bonding process is successfully completed, which usually takes between three and six months, the replacement is permanently in place.

Your dental consultation
During your initial consultation, your dental surgeon will examine you to determine if you are a good candidate for implants. A examinations and tests will help our expert dentist to determine how many implants you require and where the replacements should be positioned in your jaw.
A treatment plan, with the overall cost and time frame for the procedure, will be presented to you at the time of your consultation. You will also be told about any dental work or special surgical procedures that might be needed, like for example bone restoration or sinus lift.
The dental surgeon will also review your medical history. Imaging tests such as a panoramic X-ray or CT scan will be provided before your treatment begins to determine whether you have enough jaw bone to support artificial implants.
The implant procedure
The implant process is usually a two –phase procedure. During the first part of your dental implant treatment, the implants are placed in your jawbone.
The actual procedure of implant placement in your jawbone is done under local anesthesia and is generally not really painful. When the anesthesia wears off about three or four hour later, you might expect some discomfort. The level of discomfort can differ from patient to patient, but most patients do not have significant problems. Some patients do have varying degrees of pain or discomfort, which may last for few days. Swelling and minor bruising may also develop.
Your jawbone will gradually grow around the implants. You can help this process of integration by avoiding pressure on your jaw and keeping your gums and teeth exceptionally clean.
Occasionally dental implants are rejected. In many instances, they can be replaced with another implant, usually of a slightly larger size.
While the implants are bonding to your jawbone you will be wearing your temporary denture for one or a number of missing teeth. You will then return to our dental clinic after your jawbone has firmly healed around the implants, usually three to six months after the initial placement. Your second visit will involve attaching crowns to the implants. Care is always taken to ensure that the new crowns match the colour and shape of your existing teeth.
If your mouth is not ideal for artificial replacements at present, our dental implants dentistwill use certain procedures for improving your situation.
The following procedures are in use:
- Bone Graft sometimes before a dental implant is placed, it is necessary to build up the bone in the area to insure success. The procedure of building up the bone is known as bone grafting.
- Tissue Regeneration Your oral surgeon can assist bone and soft tissue growth by placing artificial membrane along the bone edge. This membrane slows soft tissue growth, giving the new bone time to fuse with your jaw.
- Sinus lift: A sinus lift is done when there is not enough bone in the upper jaw, or the sinuses are too close to jaw, for dental implant s to be placed. Those complications can occur once teeth are missing; the bone begins to shrink or is absorbed back into the body. If teeth have been missing for a long time, there is often not enough bone left to allow for dental implants.
