Dental implants offer an innovative solution for those seeking to restore their missing teeth. These prosthetic teeth not only replace the visible crown but also mimic the function of natural teeth by integrating with the jawbone through an implant post. This post serves as a stable foundation, keeping the implant securely anchored while promoting the health of surrounding bone tissue.
The implant process commences with a carefully performed implant placement surgery, during which the implant post is strategically positioned into the jawbone. A vital phase of healing ensues to enable the post to fuse with the jawbone, ensuring long-term stability. After this healing period, a customized restoration is designed to fit each patient’s specific requirements, seamlessly completing the implant treatment. Depending on your needs, this restoration could be a crown, bridge, or complete or partial denture.
Maintaining dental implants is similar to caring for natural teeth. Daily oral hygiene practices, such as brushing and flossing, are essential to preserve the longevity and functionality of the implants. Regular visits to the dentist for preventive care are also crucial to ensure the overall health of the implants and surrounding oral structures.
Almost everyone who has lost a tooth is a potential candidate for implant dentistry, provided their oral health is in good condition. Prior to receiving an implant, any existing dental issues like tooth decay or gum disease must be addressed through suitable treatments.
