In case you have a missing tooth, it’s always recommended to replace it with a dental implant. Unlike bridge, we do not need to shape up 2 adjacent healthy teeth of your’s to fix a 3 unit bridge. We need to work in the empty space & your natural teeth surrounding it stay untouched.
The single tooth implant restoration consists of three parts. Namely, the implant post which replaces the tooth root, the abutment which will support the crown and the prosthetic crown itself. The crown is either cemented onto the abutment or held in place with a screw.
Single implant can be done in many scenarios.
MISSING TOOTH FROM A LONG TIME (MORE THAN 6 MONTHS)
In case that case, bone permitting , we can do immediate placement & loading of implants. That means Implant + Crown done in about 7-10 days flat. We will use Nobel active immediate loading implant (Nobel Biocare-Sweden) & you can choose between porcelain fused to metal crown or Zirconia -metal free crown.
In case you wish to go for a conventional healing ones, we can use Nobel Replace (Nobel Biocare-Sweden) Implants. it needs a healing time for 5-6 months in the upper jaw & at least 3 months in the lower jaw. Only after the healing time, that we can place the crown of your choice on top. Till that time, you may need a temporary tooth in the esthetic zone.
IMMEDIATE EXTRACTION OR RECENT EXTRACTION SOCKET (LESS THAN 6 MONTHS)
In case you are selecting Nobel Replace (Nobel Biocare-Sweden) Implants , its recommended to place the implant & wait for 3-6 months again depending on the jaw area before putting the crown. But with Nobel Active implants,a lot of times, we can sometime do Immediate Implants + Crowns. It needs proper assessment and only bone permitting, we can do the immediate loading of implants with Crowns. Sometimes, the front teeth implants needs special esthetic abutments to get the correct profile.
I would recommend Dr. Kathuria's Dental Clinic to anyone living in, or visiting Delhi.
Very good and professional customer service, very competent dentists and staff. Received zoom whitening and two large fillings from Dr Sween, very happy with the results.
The time I provided for the dental implants was not only restricted to a number of days but it was also confined to the needs of my travel schedules. Dr. Kathuria went out of his work schedule to help me! I was uncertain and stressed out about the whole procedure but Dr. Puneet Kathuria's reassurances saved me from the nightmarish thoughts of dental-work disasters. Two months post dental implants, I have not experienced a single problem with the implants. Today, I have found back the confidence to laugh. Thank you Dr. Kathuria! Jai Bharat! Jai Dr. Puneet Kathuria!
