Dental Implants in Phuket, Thailand

A dental implant has an artificial root placed in your bone at the site of the missing tooth. These are mounted with dental caps or bridges.

It is fixed into the upper or lower jawbone.  And is allowed to fuse or integrate with the jawbone.

  2. Aesthetics: Implants look more like natural teeth than dentures. You would not be able to make out aesthetically whether you have an implant or a natural tooth. But that is not the case with dentures
  3. Realistic: Implants are functionally more realistic than dentures. As they are directed embedded into the bone socket.
  4. Denture-wearers may have insecurity about if their dentures will stay in the position while biting an apple. But if you do not have to worry about it if you have an implant.
  5. Permanent Dentures are a temporary solution to missing teeth, but an implant is a permanent solution.

Dental Implants – A Healthier Option

  1. A dental bridge requires the reduction of surrounding teeth, whereas that is not needed in the case of an implant.
  2. Implants are aesthetically designed to allow enough room between the teeth for proper flossing.
  3. Implants are bio-compatible with the surrounding tissues of the mouth.

Most dentures or bridges can cause injury or any trauma to the tissues over time.

  1. Long term denture wearers can have bone loss. Whereas an implant completely fills in the gap, leaving no room for bone resorption.
  2. Denture wearers worry about dislodgement of the denture while speaking, coughing, chewing or sneezing. But you don’t have to worry about this in case of a fixed implant.
  3. The shelf life of a dental implant is about 10 to 15 years. In some cases, with excellent dental hygiene, it can go beyond 15 years.
  4. A denture has a shelf life of about a minimum of a few months to 5 years.

Recovery Time After an Implant

Once your dental implant has been placed, it will take about 2-6 months to heal. But the healing process can vary from patient to patient.
