Dental implants are a significant improvement over regular dentures. Because the posts that hold dental implants in place are integrated into the jawline. They prevent bone resorption and tongue displacement because chewing on the implant's crown stimulates the underlying bone and prevents it from eroding due to disuse. However, several medical factors, such as mouth radiation therapy and illnesses such as diabetes, impair the success rate of implant dentistry. As a result, patients must undergo a thorough screening process before undergoing implant dentistry.
Dental Implants: We offer various fixed teeth replacement options, from a single missing tooth to completely missing teeth.
The implantation procedure is the most invasive step in the dental implant process. This is when the oral surgeon places the metal that will serve as the tooth root into the jawbone. Though this is invasive, you shouldn't feel any pain during the procedure. Your oral surgeon will cut your gum to expose the bone so they can drill a hole for the implant. There are many options to help reduce pain during this process. Your surgeon will ensure this process is as comfortable as possible for you. After this step, your jawbone will grow into and unite with the dental implant. This process - called osseointegration - can take several months. It's important for your artificial tooth to have a solid base as your natural teeth do. While you wait for your jawbone to heal, you will have a gap where your tooth is missing. You will likely use a partial, temporary denture during this time. Once you have a strong base for your new artificial tooth, the process can continue.
