Replace missing teeth
In fact, dental implants provide a permanent tooth replacement treatment with long term, durable results that restore full functionality in a natural looking, aesthetically pleasing way.
What Are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is surgically put in position into the jawbone to hold a replacement tooth or bridge by a dentist specializing in implants (periodontist). Tooth implant doesn’t come loose like a denture and are made to match your natural teeth. It is an ideal option for people who have lost a tooth or have missing teeth when you use an implant dentist.
Although, the most common use of implants is to replace missing teeth. In some cases, they are used to support crowns, bridges, and other dental prosthetics. An implant provides a strong foundation for a replacement tooth, and the end-result matches the natural feel of your teeth.
The advantages of Dental Implants
If you are healthy enough to sit through a routine dental extraction, you might qualify as a candidate for getting a dental implant.
It is important, though, that you have enough bone and healthy gums to hold the implant in place.
Your dentist might want to evaluate your case on an individual basis, especially if you smoke heavily, or suffer from a chronic condition such as heart disease or diabetes.
First up, your dentist will devise an individualized treatment plan. The treatment begins with the placement of a tooth root implant made of titanium into the bone socket of the missing tooth. You have to wait for around six to 12 weeks for the healing process to complete, during which the jawbone heals and grows around the implant, securing it in place.
After the jawbone heals, a connector, or an abutment, is attached to the implant. Our dentist takes an impression of your teeth, modeled on your bite. We then create the replacement tooth, which comes in the form of a crown. The last stage is when our dentist fixes the crown onto the abutment. In some cases, patients get attachments on their implants to support removable dentures instead of getting multiple crowns.
