At The White Bridge Clinic, we believe that a confident smile can change lives. Dental implants have revolutionised the field of dentistry, offering a permanent solution for missing teeth and helping patients regain their oral health and self-esteem.
In his latest online article, Dr Amit Mohindra explores the world of dental implants and highlights the exceptional services provided by The White Bridge Clinic, ensuring you have all the information you need to make an informed decision about your dental health.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of biocompatible materials such as titanium that are surgically placed into the jawbone. These implants serve as sturdy anchors for replacement teeth, such as crowns, bridges or dentures, offering a natural-looking and functional solution for missing teeth. Unlike removable dentures, dental implants provide a permanent and long-term solution, blending seamlessly with your existing teeth and preserving your facial structure.

The Dental Implant process:
Consultation and examination:
During your initial visit, our dentists will conduct a thorough examination of your oral health, including X-rays and scans to assess your jawbone density. They will discuss your goals, expectations, and address any concerns you may have. This consultation is a crucial step in determining if dental implants are the right option for you.
Based on the examination results, our dentists will develop a personalised treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. This plan may include additional procedures such as bone grafting or sinus lift if needed to ensure a solid foundation for the implants.
Implant placement :
The next step involves the surgical placement of the dental implants into the jawbone. This procedure is performed under local anesthesia, ensuring your comfort throughout the process. The implants are strategically positioned to provide optimal support for the replacement teeth.
Osseointegration and healing:
After the implant placement, a process called osseointegration takes place. Over several months, the implants naturally fuse with the surrounding jawbone, creating a strong and stable foundation. During this healing period, temporary restorations may be provided to maintain your smile's aesthetics and functionality.
Once the implants have integrated with the jawbone, custom-made crowns, bridges, or dentures will be attached to the implants, completing your smile transformation. Our skilled dental technicians work closely with our dentists to ensure the restorations match the colour, shape, and size of your natural teeth.
