Dental Implant Treatment

Why You Should Consider?

If you’re thinking about getting dental implants, you’re not alone.

There are many advantages for undertaking implants for individuals dealing with tooth loss. Apart from improving the appearance of your smile, they can enhance your oral well-being, avoid bone degeneration, and elevate your overall quality of life.

In contrast to conventional solutions, the procedure also offers a stable and comfortable substitute for missing teeth, enabling you to enjoy your favourite foods with confidence.

What Should You Anticipate?

Imagine improving your smile and oral health for a fully restored quality of life. 
Aurora’s dental implants easily fuse with your jawbone, forming a secure foundation for realistic replacement teeth that closely copy the appearance, feel, and function of your natural teeth. They provide a comfortable and lasting solution that eliminates the inconveniences of dentures and bridges, allowing you to experience unrestricted eating, easier speech, and a radiant smile. 

Advantages of Dental Implants

When it comes to bringing new life into your smile and oral health, dental implants stand out as an exceptional choice. These artificial tooth roots offer many benefits, enhancing both your appearance and overall well-being. Some key advantages of the dental implant procedure include:

  • Natural Look and Feel: Dental implants effortlessly blend into your smile, closely mirroring the appearance and function of natural teeth.
  • Longevity: Designed to endure for decades, or even for life, making them a long-term investment.
  • Enhanced Articulation: Dental implants ensure proper speech clarity, unlike traditional dentures. 
  • Preservation of Jawbone: They stimulate bone growth, preventing the deterioration associated with missing teeth. 
  • Improved Chewing: You can savour your cherished foods without fear or pain, as implants provide remarkable chewing strength.

The Oral Installation Process

Dental implants are a highly effective solution for addressing missing teeth. The path to achieving a brighter smile through the dental implant procedure consists of several key phases. 

Initial Assessment

It all begins with a comprehensive evaluation conducted by our skilled dental team. We will assess your oral health, engage in discussions about your goals, and craft a personalized treatment plan tailored specifically to you. 

Preparatory Steps

In certain instances, preparatory procedures like bone augmentation may be necessary to ensure that your jawbone can adequately support the implant. 

Implant Placement

During the surgical procedure, an oral surgeon or dentist will precisely insert the titanium implant into your jawbone, establishing the foundation for your new tooth. 

Healing Phase

After the implant has been placed, a recovery period spanning several months becomes crucial. During this timeframe, the implant integrates with the jawbone through a process known as osseointegration, ensuring its stability. 

Abutment Attachment

Once the implant has fully fused with the jawbone, an abutment is affixed to it. This component serves to connect the implant to the final crown. 

Crown Installation

Ultimately, a custom-crafted dental crown, designed to match the appearance of your natural teeth, is securely fastened to the abutment. This crown completes your new tooth, restoring both the functionality and aesthetics of your smile.
