What are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is a false or artificial tooth made of up titanium, which is surgically inserted through the gums into the jawbone. The replacement tooth goes over the dental implant, which means that the implant serves as a base for the replacement tooth.
How do Dental Implants Work?
As mentioned above, the implant is fixed directly into the jawbone, which offers stability to the replacement tooth. Steady implant means no slippage or shift of the replacement tooth/denture/bridge, giving a more natural feel over conventional bridges or dentures.
The dental implants have the upper hand when compared to conventional bridges or dentures, in that dental implants do not require reading the surrounding area of the implant site, and does not require any support from the teeth adjacent to the implant site.
Due to the advancements in the field of dentistry, Implants can now be placed in any person above the age of 18 years, irrespective of their bone condition and health status. The key here is to diligently pursue the instructions/advice given by the treating dentist both pre and post-implantation surgery to safeguard the vitality of the implant. It is needless to say that maintaining oral hygiene is essential for the durability of dental implants.
What Is A Dental Implant Procedure Like?
The outcome success of a dental implant surgery
depends on the team effort between a patient and his dentist. A dentist after going through a patient’s dental issue, medical history of illnesses, current medication (if any), ongoing treatment (if any), family history of diseases, etc. charts out a plan as to how and when to proceed with the implant surgery.
Depending on the number of teeth lost and the available bone quantity your dentist may go with the course of corrective action:
- Replacing a single tooth
- Replacing Several Teeth
- Replacing all of your teeth
What to Expect after Having A Dental Implant?
Home oral care like brushing, flossing, and regular dental visit for simple cleaning procedures are required which is quite similar to the natural teeth care, so that you can keep your implant clean and plaque-free.
