Dental implants are a popular and effective way to replace missing teeth.
They are artificial tooth roots made of biocompatible materials, such as titanium, which are surgically placed into the jawbone to support a dental prosthesis (such as a crown, bridge, or denture) on top.
Dr. Vikas Gupta has expertise in dental implant procedures with the necessary training, qualifications, and experience to carry out the process successfully.
Here is an overview of what you can expect when seeking dental implant services from Dr. Vikas Gupta:
Your journey towards dental implants usually begins with an initial consultation. During this visit, Dr. Vikas Gupta will examine your mouth, teeth, and jawbone, and may also take x-rays or CT scans to assess bone density and the overall condition of your oral structures.
Based on the examination results, Dr. Gupta will create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. The plan will outline the number of implants required, the type of prosthesis to be used, and any necessary preparatory procedures (such as bone grafting if the jawbone lacks sufficient density).
The actual implant placement is a surgical procedure that takes place in the clinic. Local anesthesia or sedation is used to ensure your comfort during the process. Dr. Vikas will carefully insert the dental implants into the jawbone at precise locations.
After implant placement, there is a healing period that allows the implants to fuse with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration. This can take a few months, during which you may be provided with temporary prosthetics.
Once the implants have integrated with the jawbone, Dr. Vikas Gupta will attach the dental prosthesis (crown, bridge, or denture) to the implants. The prosthesis is custom-made to match the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth.
After the completion of the procedure, regular check-ups and maintenance will be necessary to monitor the health of the implants and ensure their long-term success. Good oral hygiene practices are crucial to keep the implants and surrounding tissues healthy.
Dr. Vikas Gupta has a high success rate and can significantly improve your oral health, appearance, and quality of life by restoring missing teeth with a durable and natural-looking solution.
