Dental Implants

Dental Implants

Dental implants are a popular and effective option for replacing missing or damaged teeth. They are artificial tooth roots that are placed into the jawbone to support a replacement tooth or bridge.

The dental implant process typically involves several steps:

  1. Evaluation: The dentist will evaluate the patient’s oral health and take X-rays/ CBCT scans and impressions of the teeth to determine if they are a good candidate for dental implants.
  2. Implant placement: During the first surgical procedure, the dentist will place the dental implant into the jawbone. The implant is made of a biocompatible material that will fuse with the surrounding bone tissue over a period of time.
  3. Healing period: After the implant is placed, a healing period of several months is required to allow the implant to fuse with the bone. During this time, a temporary replacement tooth or bridge may be worn.
  4. Abutment placement: After the healing period, a second surgical procedure is performed to place an abutment on top of the dental implant. The abutment is a small connector that attaches the replacement tooth or bridge to the implant.
  5. Replacement tooth or bridge placement: Once the abutment is in place, the replacement tooth or bridge is attached to the abutment.

Benefits of dental implants include:

  1. Improved appearance: Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth, and can improve the appearance of your smile.
  2. Improved speech: Dental implants can help to improve speech by providing a stable, secure base for replacement teeth.
  3. Improved comfort: Dental implants are more comfortable than dentures, as they do not slip or move around in the mouth.
  4. Improved chewing ability: Dental implants provide a strong, stable base for replacement teeth, allowing for improved chewing ability.
  5. Improved oral health: Dental implants do not require the removal of healthy tooth structure, as is often necessary with traditional bridges. This helps to maintain overall oral health.
