Dental Implants now offer patients so much more. They give the patient the opportunity to have the next best thing to real teeth. So why would you consider implants?
Having Dental Implants allows the patient to have a secure, stable and realistic option for replacing damaged or injured teeth. This gives the patient something permanent instead of removable bridges, partials, and dentures. The procedure can last up to 40 years.
The Dental Implant procedure involves placing a titanium post into the jawbone. This is what is replacing the root.
Step 1: This is done by the dentist drilling a small hole where the tooth is missing.
Step 2: Once the hole has been drilled, he will make it a little bigger for the post to be placed.
Step 3: After the post is in place the gum around it will be secured and a protective screw will be placed on top while the healing process takes place. A temporary crown will also be placed on top for the surrounding gum to form naturally around it. This procedures usually can be done with a local anesthetic and the healing time can take up to 3 to 6 months.
Step 4: Once the healing has taken place, a crown will be made and put on top to match the existing teeth. The jawbone will actually grow around the post and will make it very stable. This will result to being very similar to actual teeth.
Step 5: This procedure can be done for one tooth, a few teeth or even all the teeth. This gives the patient back their self-esteem, confidence, and comfort back to their lives to where they can smile without having to try and hide that they have missing teeth.
