Dental implants provide a fundamental and durable teeth replacement option. With implant dentistry, those who suffer from loss of teeth can now regain their ability to smile confidently, speak, and eat just like they did before. Your dental implants are engineered to behave as tooth roots to support artificial teeth structures. Upon implantation, the titanium roots anchor deep within the jawbone to form strong structural support. They also help preserve facial structure and prevent bone deterioration.
Procedure Involved in Getting Your Implants
Dental implants are more like stable tooth roots that help to hold a restoration over them. During your first visit, the dentist would carefully place the implant at the point on the jawbone where the tooth is missing. Sufficient time would be given for the implant to bond with the jawbone. The patient would be advised on how to take of the implant during this time and facilitate proper healing. It is also during this time that your restorative dentist would be fabricating the replacement restoration.
During the second phase, the surgeon would attach a healing collar over the implants. The surgeon can then place restorations over the implant. Getting dental implants are a safe and strong means of reshaping your smile, regaining aesthetics, and the functionality of the teeth.
