Important details about dental implants in Dubai
Dental implants were invented in 1952 by a Swedish doctor. Since then, the procedure has become a standard in dentistry, practiced by the dentists worldwide. Dental implants are necessary when replacing a natural tooth. The operation can only be performed using anesthetics, as the dental intervention requires the doctor to drill in the jawbone and insert a titanium screw, on which the prosthetic tooth will be added. The intervention is not done for patients under the age of 18, as the natural bone and jawbone are not fully developed yet.
Types of dental implants
Our Dubai dentist is prepared to offer you the solution that fits your dental situation. At our dental clinic in Dubai, the doctors can perform the following dental implants:
• endosteal dental implant – the dentists insert into the jawbone screws or cylinders, that will hold the prosthetic tooth; this method is preferred as it offers stability to the new tooth.
• subperiosteal dental implant – the implant is done on the bone, on the top of the jawbone, by adding metal framework that will sustain the prosthetic tooth.
Dental implant procedure in Dubai
A patient can require a dental implant in various cases. You can present your situation to our dentists in Dubai, who can perform the following:
• replace a single tooth;
• replace several teeth;
• replace all the teeth, in which case the patient will need dentures;
• sinus augmentation – doctors can raise the sinus floor to successfully insert a dental implant.
After deciding on how to approach your dental implant, the dentist will insert a titanium screw. The dentist will also prepare a socket in the jaw, which will replace the root of the natural tooth. After the procedure is done, the screw will fuse with the bone in three to six months, in a process that is called “osseointegration”. You can benefit from a dental treatment in Dubai even if you suffer from diabetes, cardiac diseases, osteoporosis and other diseases.
