Dental implants offer a natural looking replacement for adult teeth.  In addition, implants restore functionality to the jaw, making speaking, eating and chewing easier.  Most implants are comprised of a screw that is embedded into the bone, and a post, to which the prosthesis is attached.

Nobel Biocare implants are unique because the microsurface of the root-shaped screw contains an innovative self-tapping component.  This means that implants can be placed in areas with low bone density, sparing the patient the mess and misery of wearing poorly fitting dentures.  Additionally, this type of implant means quicker recovery time after the implant is placed.

Why should I choose Nobel Biocare dental implants?

There are a wide variety of dental implants in the marketplace, but Nobel has an almost unparalleled success rate.  Almost 98% of Nobel implants are fitted successfully and last a lifetime. Nobel Active implants contain a unique feature, which is embedded in the surface of the screw.  

Additionally, the root-shaped Active implant adds precision to the placement of implants and ensures that the final prosthesis is comfortable and can withstand pressure.

Here are some of the other benefits associated with Nobel Biocare Active implants:

  • Better oral health.
  • Higher success rate.
  • Improved self-esteem.
  • Long-lasting results.
  • Multiple implants can be placed during a visit.
  • Natural-looking implants.
  • No adhesives or mess.
  • Prevention of bone loss and gum recession.
  • Sturdy, functional prosthetic teeth.

Here is a step-by-step process for the first stage of a dental implant placement:

  • An incision will be made in the gum tissue to expose the jawbone.
  • A tiny hole will be drilled into the jawbone to insert the implant into.
  • The implant will be screwed or tapped into the designated position.
  • A small temporary stop-cap is placed to cover the implant, and the surgical site is sutured closed.
  • After approximately 10 days, the sutures will be removed and the dentist will assess the healing process.
  • Generally, Nobel Active dental implants enhance the healing process, which means that the second treatment phase can be completed around 6-8 weeks after the first.

When the healing process is complete, the new dental prosthesis (usually a crown) will be created from bite impressions.  A tiny screw will be used to secure the prosthesis onto the abutment.  Any necessary adjustments will be made to ensure the prosthesis is comfortable, and the implant will be secure for a lifetime.
