Suffering from Tooth Loss?
Tooth loss is indeed a discomfort in all ways! Natural teeth plays a significant role in maintaining the facial shape. Natural tooth helps in keeping the bone healthy by transmitting the bite load to the tooth roots and therefore this helps in stimulating the supporting bone. Tooth restorations are the best way to prevent complications that result from tooth loss and for improving the efficiency of chewing. Getting back a lost tooth, can transform the quality of your life. It renews your smile and gets back your chewing ability.
What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a titanium screw fitted on to your jaw bone, acts as a replacement for the root of the missing tooth. The special feature of titanium of getting fused to the bone, stabilizes the bone from further deterioration and helps to maintain the bone density and shape. The implant holds the replacement tooth like an anchor. Dental implants can be a great solution to replace one or more missing teeth. People find dental implants to be comfortable than the removable dentures, as dental implants function like a permanent teeth. They find significant improvement in their chewing ability after the dental implant treatment.
Dental Implant Procedure
During your first consultation, our dentist will check on your X-ray to check on the density of your jaw bone. Using a soft plastic compound, the models of your mouth will be done. It helps in determining the gaps and serves as a measurement for the bridge or replacement tooth. Before the surgical procedure, local anesthesia will be given, so that you don’t feel the pain. After making incision on your gums, several dental drills are used to place the implants inside your jaw bone. It takes two to six months for the implants to fuse with your jaw bone, after which tooth restorations will be attached to complete the process. The custom made crown is attached to the abutment, so that it is permanently placed and stays indistinguishable among your natural teeth.
Dental implants are said to be the best replacement solution that is long lasting depending upon the bone health of the individual. Replacing single tooth with dental implants is comparatively better than the tooth supported bridge method because dental implants does not affect the surrounding teeth.
If the patient has one or more missing teeth, dental implants can be used to replace the missing teeth. Unlike the tooth supported bridge, dental implants directly uses the jaw bone of the missing tooth. This helps in maintaining the existing jaw bone structure and also promotes bone growth near the adjacent teeth and the implant.
Full mouth dental implants are designed to give full mouth restoration with permanent replacement tooth. Similar to single tooth restoration, full mouth dental implants gives a natural appearance and provides a stronger foundation for the permanent tooth. Also, the maintenance is quite easier when compared to dentures.
