Dental implants are prosthetic teeth placed in the place of extracted natural teeth. They are often the most recommended solutions to replace missing teeth, owing to several benefits that they offer. If you have been considering various alternatives to get your missing tooth restored, dental implants should ideally be your first choice, and we’ll help you understand why.
The dentist conducts a thorough screening procedure to understand your candidacy for dental implants. Most importantly, patients would need to have ideal jawbone volume, ample space to place the implant, maintain optimum oral and overall health, etc. X-rays and oral scans will be used to get a better view of the jawbone, tooth roots, and other oral tissues during this. The data from the scans will be used to create a digital impression of the tooth, which is used as a reference for fabricating the ceramic crown.
You will be prepared for the procedure by cleaning the oral cavity and administering local anesthesia to numb the teeth, jawbone, and other surrounding tissues.
A small hole will be made in place of the extracted tooth in the jawbone, and the metal implant will be placed in it. After a suitable healing period of a few months, the jawbone would have adhered well to the implant and grown around the grooves. This provides the necessary stability to the implant.
After the healing period, the crown will be placed on the implant with the help of a connecting abutment. A bite test will be taken to understand how well the implant has been placed in the mouth and if it is altering your natural bite. If any changes are required in its alignment, they will be made by the dentist. The implant will be polished, and the dentist will give you care instructions to make sure the implant remains as good as new for many years.
