Dr. Aqib Talking About Implants
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are a small titanium screw,that replaces the root portion of a missing natural tooth before being covered with a crown. Due to the biocompatible properties of titanium, the dental implant fuses with the bone and becomes a secure anchor for the replacement tooth. Dental implants can be used to replace either a single tooth (single implant) or multiple teeth (multiple implants) in both the upper and lower jaw. Dental implants have revolutionised restorative dentistry. They are the most advanced technological treatment option available. They offer permanent replacement to loose and missing teeth and can be an alternative to wearing dentures, rebuilding confidence with a functional and secure smile.
Digital Implant Dentistry
Digital Implant Dentistry has taken the art of replacement of missing teeth to the next era.
Digital implant dentistry has streamlined the benefits of traditional implants to enhance patient experience and implant predictability. The advantages of the new digital implants include:
- More comfortable process
- Fewer visits to the dentist
- The entire procedure takes as little as 15 minutes.
- Get your replacement tooth faster
- Perfect occlusion
- Greater accuracy, stability, and predictability
The digital implant dentistry involves using advance technology and software, which makes the digital planning process really smooth and accurate. This planning process allows us to make sure the surgery goes smoothly. The procedure is extremely comfortable with no incisions and no stitches. The preplanned guide allows for accurate placement of the implant in as little as 15 minutes, compared to 110 minutes or more for traditional implants.
The digital implant planning allows for a mock-up of the procedure before you come in for the surgery. This makes it possible to run the surgery as smoothly as possible. The traditional implants can take seven visits to complete. However, with digital implant dentistry, the entire procedure can be completed in as few as three visits.
We use advanced technologies at Ideal Smile to make our patients experience as comfortable as possible. You don’t have to go through physical impression taking and biting into a tray of impression material. We use the digital impression technique which ensures accurate results and comfortable experience for the patient.
Digital implant dentistry makes it possible to replace your missing tooth in as little as 5 to 7 days, compared to 123 days for traditional implant procedures.
For the success of an implant, it is very important to achieve excellent occlusion. Digital implant planning is a complete process, which ensures the placing of the implant as well as the crown on top of the implant in the best possible position to obtain optimal occlusion, stability, and predictability.
Will my new teeth look natural?
Combined with modern restorative dentistry, their appearance, comfort and function are very likely to exceed your expectations. Dental implants are often hard to tell apart from your natural teeth.

Will dental implants work for me?
If you are missing a tooth or teeth due to injury, disease or tooth decay, you may be a candidate for dental implants. We at Ideal Smile will assess your suitability based on the amount of available bone. It might be that other approaches are recommended, such as a crown, a bridge or dentures.
What are the advantages of dental implants?
- A secure and permanent solution to missing teeth
- Dental implants can stop the process of jawbone shrinkage which may cause your face to look older
- With traditional bridges, adjacent teeth are normally ground down to provide anchors. Dental implants can eliminate the need to modify healthy teeth
- Renewed ability to chew and speak properly
- Reduction of possible gum problems and infections
- Increased confidence and self-esteem as a result of all of the above
The dental implant process
Your Smiles Dental Clinician will evaluate your case and create an individual treatment plan informing you of the treatments and costs involved.
Your clinician will carefully insert your implants before placing a protective cover over them. The initial implant normally takes approximately 45 minutes – three hours and is under local anaesthetic (conscious sedation is also offered). The dental implant integrates with the bone of your jaw over a period of three to six months, as the bone grows around the screw and holds it firmly in place. (A temporary denture may need to be worn during this phase).
A crown is placed over the implant to replace the original natural tooth after the implant has mended to the bone.
