Dental Implant


Endosteal Dental Implants
This is one of the most utilised dental implants treatment, especially while replacing single tooth dental implants to even multiple missing teeth. These implants are fixed into the bone over which the prosthetic teeth are fixed. Ideally used in cases where patients want fixed teeth. They are fast, convenient and can be used instead of dental bridges as they do not require trimming of the adjacent teeth.
All On 4 Dental Implants
The All on 4 Dental Implants are used in case of a patient completely missing teeth. In this kind of dental implant treatment, the entire teeth set is replaced upon 4 dental implants. Another advantage of the all on 4 technique is that it can be done in areas where bone support isn’t adequate. The treatment duration with all on 4 dental implants can vary between 6-8 months and different types of dental implants can be used for the all on 4 dental implants treatment.
Full Mouth Dental Implants
Full Mouth Dental Implants are indicated when all teeth are missing. Full mouth dental implants does not mean replacing each and every tooth with an implant. Quite often, 6- 8 dental implants are placed in each jaw over which teeth are replaced. The duration of treatment varies from case to case and can range anywhere between 3 to 7 months. For people looking for affordable dental implants in case of completely missing teeth, this treatment option is excellent.

What is a Dental Implant?

Dental Implants are used to replace missing teeth. When you loose a tooth, the neighbouring teeth tend to drift into the missing tooth space and can affect stability. Dental Implants are the closest replacement to natural teeth as they look, function and feel just like natural teeth.

Recovery after Dental Implants Treatment?

Getting dental implants treatment done is a minor surgical procedure. The initial recovery time post surgery varies and can take anywhere from 3-10 days. It is essential to maintain oral hygiene after surgery so that the implants fuse correctly with your jaw bone.

    After reading positive reviews, I wanted to give it a try, I must say I had a very good experience. I had a filling done with another dentist for my front tooth, it was not matching my tooth colour.When smiling people used to tell me I have lipstick on my teeth and I had to tell them that it’s a filling and not lipstick. Dr. Schuyler had replaced the filling which is matching my teeth colour. He is very informative and explains everything in details which is easy for the patient to understand. Very happy with their service. In future will be getting my implants done with him. Highly recommended.

    With the pandemic in 2019, I never consulted a dentist until I moved back to Goa, India, last month (June 2022).As I was googling and looking for a good dentist in Margao, I came across - Smile Craft. Their website was nice and fancy among all the other dental clinics, but I wasn't sure if they were the best.Yet, I thought I would give them a shot. My primary concern was my molar which went wrong after I did a root canal years back. So I got my appointment booked and was consulted by Dr. Schuyler.The first thing I mentioned to him was let's extract the molar instead of fixing it, as I had no hope of improving it. However, Dr. Schuyler wasn't ready to extract it and believed it still could be fixed. Dr. Schuyler and their team always provide the best advice to get that beautiful smile crafted :)Well, If it could be all fixed - I was all up for it. After a couple of visits, my teeth are as good as they could be. Their team uses A1 quality dental filling; you can't even notice you have a filling. It matches your tooth color, unlike some dentists using cheap quality, which feels like POP stuck on your teeth.Also, they're very cautious while completing their dental procedure with no pain at all. I nearly dozed off once.I think the Smile Craft team is one of the best out there. I recommend it to everyone looking to get their smile crafted by the best team - SMILE CRAFT is the place!!

    Dr Schuyler is one of the best dentists in Goa! Had visited him for a couple of tooth colored fillings and was very impressed. His work stands out, I cannot even tell that my tooth has a filling! It looks so natural! The clinic is clean and the staff is very polite and professional. Yes, it did take me time to get an appointment, but now I realize why. Certainly recommend Smile Craft to anyone looking at getting quality dental treatment done.
