Dental implant NEW

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots. They replace the portion of the tooth that is beneath the gum line. Usually, they are used with crowns, which you can put on top of them, to have an entire tooth replaced.

This method of dental prosthesis is the only one which will lead to the prevention of further tooth loss. The alveolus, or soft tissue disintegrates when there is no tooth root in it, so dental implants were invented to stop this from happening.

Dental implants are made of titanium, which is a completely hypoallergenic material, and they let the bone cells grow into the actual dental implant itself.

Getting dental implants:

The dental implant procedure is a complex multi visit affair.

  • First, you will need to get x-rays to see if your jawbone is thick and dense enough to receive a dental implant. If you are eligible for dental implan ts, you will need to get the tooth you wish replaced completely extracted, if it is still present.
  • Next, we will place the dental implant into the jawbone. This is a 30-45 minute procedure.
  • When the dental implant is inserted, you will need roughly 3 months of healing time, during which you will need to come in to have your stitches removed.
  • Once you are healed, you will have an uncovering of the dental implant and a healing screw put in place. After that you can get your final crown.
