Dental Implants

Dental implants are a popular and effective way to replace missing teeth. They are the ‘present’ and ‘future’ effective tooth replacement. They are an excellent long-term option for tooth replacement.

Dental implants are made up of titanium and other materials that are compatible with the human body. They are posts that are surgically placed in the upper or lower jaw, where they function as replacement teeth. Once the implants are placed into the bone, the bone cells start to migrate and fuse with the implant.

What happens during a dental implant procedure?

The steps depend on several factors when performing a dental implant procedure.

Complete Oral Assessment: The dentist will take a look into overall oral health. In this step, a dentist will use either a CBCT scan. The scans will help accurately examine the site for the implant.

Placement of the implant: If the site is deemed adequate and the wounds are fully healed, the dentist will insert the implant. It usually takes about 3 to 6 months before the implant is ready to receive a tooth.

Installing the crown: If the implant is ready and stable then, a crown can now be installed.

Benefits of dental implant

It promotes good oral bone health: If a tooth is missing, the bone in the area, as well as other tissues, begin to deteriorate. If a dental implant is placed, it acts as a replacement for the missing root.

It is like natural teeth: It helps replace a missing tooth and restores optimal form, function and aesthetics.

It is incredibly durable: A dental implant is a long term solution if maintained properly. It is as durable as natural teeth without the worry of decay.

It does not damage or take support from adjacent teeth which would otherwise have to be trimmed if a bridge would have to be seated.
