Dental Implants in Chennai
Arguably the simplest way to replace a tooth is removable denture. It could be partial denture replacing only selected few teeth or complete denture replacing the entire set of teeth. Obviously, the disadvantage of this technique is in its name itself “removable”. Often patients find it uncomfortable, loose and coming off while eating, chewing and speaking. Last but not the least the risk of swallowing or gagging on these removable dentures cannot be rules out. Dental implants and bridge has largely replaced the removable tooth concept.
As the name suggests, a bridge makes use of the adjacent teeth as pillars and replace missing teeth. This is a fixed option. However the biggest drawback to this technique is intentional damage to adjacent teeth which otherwise could be symptom free. There are a number of types of bridges available. The best option would be decided by the dentist depending on the clinical scenario. Dental implants have largely replaced this replacement technique.
A tooth has two parts, a crown that is the visible part of the tooth in the mouth and a root that is under the gums. The root supports the tooth. A dental implant is nothing but a titanium screw that is placed into the jaw bone, in an area where a tooth is missing. The screw essentially acts a root of the tooth and a crown is then fixed on top of this screw. The success of a dental implant depends on a number of factors. Not everyone is a good candidate for dental implants. Generally the success rate of dental implants worldwide is about 95 percent.

This technique is a semi fixed option, meaning the prosthesis has two parts, a fixed part and a removable part. It is a viable option for people who wants fixed teeth but not keen on a bridge or a dental implant.
