What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants in Dubai are tooth roots made of titanium that are surgically implanted through your gum into your jawbone. These titanium roots let your dentist mount new teeth that match your natural ones. These implants offer a very strong base for your new pearly white teeth and are the best choice for having a full set of teeth. There are three main components of dental implants.
Titanium implant: It is the screw that is inserted into the jawbone.
Implant Abutment: It is a connector and its function is to support the crown.
Implant Crown: It is placed on the abutment.
Benefits of Dental Implants
There are numerous benefits of dental implants which make them preferable to overdentures. Have a look at some of them below;
Improved self-confidence: It is very normal to have low self-esteem when you are missing a couple of teeth. But if you replace them with dental implants, your self-esteem will be higher than the clouds.
Enhanced appearance: Dental implants are designed to feel and look like your own teeth. Unlike dentures, they are permanent and improve your overall look and feel. A new set of pearly whites to fill in space in your dental structure will definitely enhance your appearance.
Better eating: Eating while you have spaces within your dental structure is hard. But what’s harder is eating with dentures that are prone to moving with every chew. With dental implants, chewing has become such a pleasure. You can eat whatever food you like, without any of them falling out or causing any pain. This is because dental implants are permanent just like your natural teeth until someone or something knocks them out.
Improved speech: Sometimes when you lack teeth or have dentures that slide over all the time while talking, you can find yourself unable to pronounce some words and your speech becomes slurry. With these new and permanent dental implants in Dubai, you don’t have to worry about anything slipping out, and you can pronounce every letter of the alphabet easily and confidently.
Comfort: Dental implants come with a sense of comfort. If you have had dentures in the past, you know that they are not permanent and you have to remove them every now and then. This causes you an embarrassing inconvenience every time you have to do this. With dental implants, it doesn’t happen because your dental implants are fixed in your jaws, just like your other teeth. In addition to this, you can wake up the same person you were when you went to bed.

Dental Implants FAQs
How long does it take to place dental implants?

How to care for dental implants?
Just like your real teeth require care, dental implants also require maintenance. You can take care of your implants by brushing, flossing and rinsing them with an antibacterial mouthwash. Also, you will have to visit your dentist for regular checkups.
How is dental implant performed?
First of all, a customized treatment plan is developed which addresses the needs of the patient. After that, a small titanium post known as a tooth root implant is inserted into the bone socket of the missing tooth. The jawbone starts growing around the implanted metal post as it heals and securely anchors the post in the jaw.
In the next step, an abutment (small connector post) is attached to the post that holds the new tooth securely. The dentist then makes the impressions of teeth on the dental implant to create a model of bite. In the end, a crown is attached to the abutment. The color of implants is matched to your natural teeth and they function just like natural teeth.
