What you should know about Dental Implants
Do you have missing teeth? Are you looking for a durable, fixed replacement for your lost teeth? Then, Dental Implants has been a sure solution for missing teeth, for decades. They are considered the best-fixed substitute for lost teeth without damaging the adjacent teeth.
A dental implant plays the role of the root of a tooth when placed in the jaw bone; and support artificial prostheses such as crowns, bridges, and dentures. The main aim of a dental implant is to integrate with the surrounding bone thus simulating a natural tooth.
A dental implant takes time to integrate with the jaw bone to attain stability. Once the stability is attained, the implant is covered by an abutment through which the prosthesis is engaged or retained.
Implant procedures may take a few days or a few months based on the rate of the bone formation surrounding it. However, same-day implants are also gaining popularity and can reduce the waiting period.
Dental implants are placed by an oral surgeon, periodontist, prosthodontist or an experienced certified implant dentist. Pre-treatment assessment is done by the dentist to identify if the patient is a suitable candidate for implants.
Dental implants are recommended if one, more than two, or all teeth are missing. Poor bone density is a deterrent for dental implants, however, bone augmentation can be done to enhance the bone density before placement of implants.
Variations of Dental Implants
Single tooth Implant: It is used to replace a single missing tooth.
Implant supported bridges: Two or more implants are used to replace more than two teeth with the help of a bridge.
Implant supported dentures: Complete dentures have good retention and stability when they are anchored to the jaw bone with implants.
