Dental implants are contemplated as a choice for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease or an injury. Dental Implants provide a strong foundation for permanent or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teethwhere an artificial tooth root is placed into the jaw to hold a replacement tooth.
What is a Dental Implant Procedure Like?
A dental implant involves a series of the process where the first is the development of an individualized treatment plan, followed by
Tooth Root Implant-It is a small post made of titanium, and it is placed into the bone socket of the missing tooth. It grows around the implanted metal post and anchors it securely in the jaw. The healing process takes usually from six to 12 weeks.
Abutment Attachment-Once the implant has bonded to the jawbone, a small connector post called an abutment is attached to the post to securely hold the new tooth. Model Creation -Now the dentist makes impressions or duplicates the teeth to create a model which captures all your teeth, their type, look and feel color, and their arrangement. And now a replacement tooth called a crown, is then attached to the abutment. Few patients may also have attachments instead of one or more individual crowns.
