How the procedure works
At the first consultation, we will take digital X-rays of your teeth to check the condition of your oral health. After that, we will help you decide if you will require dental implants to hold in your crown or dental bridge.
The majority of dental implants are a synthetic tooth that looks like a post. The “root” is usually made from titanium, a metal that fits perfectly and doesn’t react to contact with the human bone. A substitute tooth is then inserted to the post. These posts will take the place of the roots of missing or broken teeth if the roots are unable to support a crown or bridge any more, surgically fixed to match the jawbone. You will undergo Osseointegration – a procedure where the bone grows in tightly around the root form making sure it is well anchored, after which you give it some time to heal.
Dental implants are also responsible for protecting the tooth-supporting bone they latch onto from deterioration, keeping your entire smile from damage in the future. As soon as the dental implants are fixed and healed, you can cap them off with a substitute tooth or bridge. You can choose whether to a permanently attached or removable tooth. Permanent teeth are more secured and have the feel of natural teeth.
Are dental implants right for you
This is certainly something you would like to know. The ideal person for implants is a non-smoker with good oral health, as well as enough amount of bone in the jaw, and healthy gums without any signs of gum disease. If this doesn’t work for you, we will be happy to recommend other cosmetic dentistry services that would meet your needs. We do all of this is a bias-free environment where your complete satisfaction is our priority.
Always treat your replacement teeth as you would your natural teeth. They both need daily brushing and flossing and require the same amount of regular check-ups. If you take good care of your replacement teeth, they will last longer in proportion.
Immediately your dental implant restoration is finished, ensure that you clean up the area and keep it infection-free. Dental implants can harbor plaque and tartar same way teeth can. Professional cleaning of your teeth is very important regardless of whether you have just one tooth replaced by an implant or several. How often you go for these cleanings will be determined by your individual needs.
Situations Requiring the Use of Dental Implants:
- Dental implants are highly recommended if you are missing all your teeth instead of using removable complete dentures. Not only do removable dentures have poor chewing efficiency (less than 50% of normal chewing efficiency), they also cause gradual bone resorption resulting in facial collapse and you will longer be able to reasonably fit any type of denture.
- Dental implants are also recommended if you have one or two teeth missing and the adjacent teeth are healthy and intact. With dental implants, you won’t have to place crowns on adjacent healthy teeth.
- Dental implants are also useful when you have missing tooth or teeth at the back of your mouth and where you can’t put supporting teeth on both sides.
