Getting dental implants in Nairobi, what you should know

Dental implants are medical devices surgically implanted into the jaw to restore a person’s ability to chew or their appearance after losing one or several teeth. They essentially provide support for artificial teeth, such as crowns, bridges, or dentures.

Who needs a dental implant?

Dental implants are recommended for persons who have lost their natural tooth (teeth) either due to injury or disease. Missing a tooth or more can make one experience complications such as:

  • rapid bone loss,
  • defective speech,
  • or changes to chewing patterns that result in discomfort.

We recommend replacing a lost tooth with a dental implant can significantly improve the patient’s quality of life and health for a lifetime.

Structure of a dental implant

A dental implant has 3 parts; a dental implant body, a dental implant abutment, and a dental crown. The dental implant body is surgically inserted in the jawbone to replace the tooth’s root. The dental implant abutment is usually attached to the implant body by the abutment fixation screw and extends through gums into the mouth to support the attached cap (crown) which plays the role of an artificial tooth.

Six benefits of a dental implant

Dental implants are the best replacement option for missing teeth. They improve the quality of life, oral well-being, and overall health of those who consider them. These are the 6 benefits every dental implant candidate gets after the treatment:
