Dental implants are a popular method of replacing missing teeth because they integrate with the patient’s bone to provide long-term stability, aesthetic appearance, and a natural chewing motion. The implant itself is composed of a screw that fuses with the jawbone at the point where the tooth root resides. Since this fusion happens, there is no longer a need for dental flossing.
Without using dental implants, it is impossible to have a full set of permanent teeth implanted. Some patients benefit from this treatment more than others. For instance, several factors will determine whether or not an individual can get dental implants installed, including age, how much jawbone density they have available for receiving the implant(s), their overall health status, whether or not other medical conditions exist that would inhibit healing around the area of the oral cavity where the implants will be placed, and their financial situation.
First, the surgeon from doctor wisdom will make an incision in your gum tissue. This is immediately below an existing tooth or directly underneath where a tooth has been removed. Then, he will drill into the jawbone at the implantation site; this drilling causes trauma that stimulates the growth of new bone cells into a solid mass that fuses with the screw of the implant. A metal cylinder called a ‘post’ would be placed over the center of the newly formed foundation during this process. The post’s job is to hold together any artificial dentures being worn by providing additional support for these appliances. In order for it to function correctly, the post must be firmly in place and bear sufficient weight to support your prosthesis.
Once the desired length of the screw has been inserted into your jawbone, a temporary crown will be used to cover the abutment and protect it from damage or infection until your new custom-made abutment is ready. A dental lab technician will take an impression mold of the implant’s abutment and create a fully functional, biocompatible abutment that can match your smile perfectly. This new abutment will then be used to secure any replacement teeth that have been chosen by you – creating a comfortable, supportive, and aesthetically pleasing smile.
Dental implants are a great solution for people who have lost teeth. Implants hold an artificial tooth or bridge securely in place, providing both stability and functionality to the mouth as well as restoring your smile! We hope you’ve found this blog post helpful.
