For individuals who have lost teeth in any quantity, dental implants offer foundations for replacements that look, feel and function like natural teeth, restoring the ability to eat virtually anything and smile confidently with preserved facial contours.
The implants enable bone to bond with medical grade titanium implants placed where the teeth are missing from the jawbone. The bonding process creates a solid foundation in which artificial teeth can help preserve facial structure and prevent bone deterioration.

Dental Implants can replace:
Usually, your dentist will place dental implants over the course of two surgical procedures. Surgically implanted titanium metal anchors installed by Drs. Soordhar will stand in as substitute tooth-roots. Small posts attached to the protruding implants provide artificial replacement teeth with stable anchors.
The implants beneath the surface of the gums will gradually bond with the jawbone during the first three to six months following the initial procedure. During this period when Drs. Soordhar and Soordhar design the final bridgework or denture meant to ultimately improve long-term functions and aesthetics, you should be able to wear temporary dentures and consume a diet of soft foods.
We will uncover the implants during the second operation, after they have bonded with the jawbone, in order to attach a small healing collar. We will also take a bite impression to start making your new teeth. Once we’ve connected the posts or attachments to the implants, we can place place the replacement teeth over the posts or attachments. Between the two operations, The entire procedure usually takes six to eight months with no disruption to the patient’s daily life.
A dental bridge requires the teeth next to the missing tooth to be cut down so that two crowns with a joined tooth can be placed to replace the space
A dental implant does not require any of the teeth next to the missing tooth to be cut down, so they are kept in the original condition
A denture is removable and moves around during eating, speaking and drinking.
A permanent implant denture allows for a less bulkier set of teeth to attach to implants so it is rigid and it does not move when you eat, speak or drink.
