Dental implant treatment is an ideal solution for replacing a missing tooth or a set of teeth. A teeth implant is a screw-like post that is surgically placed into the jawbone underneath the gum. This post then acts as an anchor, allowing the dentist to mount replacement teeth or a bridge on that area.
The post that is placed in the jawbone fuses with it, thus forming strong support for your artificial teeth. The post also prevents the dentures and bridges on it from shifting or slipping, allowing the patient to eat and speak freely.
Dental implants offer many advantages including:
What is the procedure for dental implants?
A dental implant treatment may require about 3-6 months, as there may be the need for some minor operations and tests.
The procedure for a dental implant begins with scans and x-rays. These tests help the dentist spot the exact location of where the implants are to be placed precisely. Once the dentist is clear on the location, you can expect a minor operation for placing the post into your jawbone. This is given a few months to heal so the post fuses with the jawbone and forms a sturdy foundation for your new teeth. Next, you can expect your dentist to take a mould of your mouth to prepare the artificial teeth. Lastly, the artificial teeth are screwed or cemented onto the base formed.
