What are dental implants?

Published by

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that provide a permanent base for fixed, replacement teeth. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason. Compared to dentures, bridges and crowns, dental implants are a popular and effective long-term solution for people because they fit, feel and function like natural teeth. Dental implants are quickly becoming the new standard in tooth replacement.

What makes dental implants feel completely comfortable and secure? The doctors at Nha Viet Dental Implant Center use a medical-grade titanium implant fixture that, over time, actually fuses to the living bone cells of the jaw. This union forms a strong and durable anchor for your new teeth, meaning there’s no slippage or other movement (which can sometimes happen with dentures). There are also no problems eating with dental implants, no need to repair them regularly and no more worrying about smiling freely and openly.

Dental implant is most likely a natural tooth

Dental implants typically have three parts:

1) The implant: A screw that serves as a root for your new teeth. This is what permanently attaches to your jaw.

2) The abutment: A permanent, but removable by our doctor, connector that supports and holds a tooth or set of teeth.

3) The crown (or prosthetic tooth): This is the part of the tooth that you can see. It’s usually made of zirconium or porcelain for durability and good looks.

You can use dental implants to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth or a full upper and/or lower set of teeth. If you need to restore a full arch, you may be a perfect candidate for the all-on-four treatment. Our specialist, Hien Vo D.D.S., will place four implants and then attach a full arch of teeth, giving the procedure its name (all teeth, only four implants).

Just as dental implants have emerged as the preferred choice for tooth replacement, Nha Viet approach has become the preferred model for dental implant treatment. Our team of experts works together under one roof, with a fully equipped, onsite lab, to build beautiful smiles in a way that works for our patients.

One team. One cost. One location. That’s the real beauty of dental implants from Nha Viet Dental Implant Center.

I've been here quite a few times since my last review. From Dr. Nga, to the staff, and most of all, Ms Trang Dung, my amazing dental hygienist; everyone here has been absolutely wonderful. Trang Dung has literally transformed me from being a complete scaredy-cat into an un-cowardly lion when it comes to getting any dental work done. Not only does she constantly check to make sure that I'm comfortable during my dental cleanings, she's so sweet...
