Implants

Dental implants are metal posts affixed into the jawbone to serve as a strong foundation to place fixed or removable artificial teeth. They include a titanium metal screw that acts as the tooth root anchored into the bone and a ceramic crown that replaces missing teeth. 

Advantages of Dental Implants 

  •  Dental Implants offer excellent durability by providing long-lasting results with minimal maintenance involved.
  •  Implants offer stability and durability by restoring proper functionality without affecting neighboring teeth or causing damage to them over time.
  •  Implants improve your confidence and self-esteem by restoring oral functions like biting, chewing, smiling, speaking,   etc., which can be adversely affected due to missing teeth or damaged ones.
  •  They enable you to eat all kinds of foods without any restrictions due to their high durability and ability to withstand daily wear and tear effectively without causing damage over time.
  •  They improve oral functions like phonetics and pronunciation due to their ability to restore phonetic contours of the mouth naturally when you speak or pronounce words correctly again.
  •  Implants prevent potential gum diseases by restoring healthy gum tissues beneath them, which can otherwise be affected due to nearby damage caused by missing or damaged teeth over time.    

What are the steps involved in placing a Dental Implant?

The first step in placing a dental implant is to remove the decayed tooth or teeth and prepare the site for the implant. The dentist injects local anesthesia to numb the gums, jawbone, and surrounding soft tissues to provide pain relief and make it comfortable for you to undergo the procedure. 

After this, a titanium implant stud is inserted into your jawbone using special dental tools. This step helps to anchor the implant firmly in place and also allows it to fuse with your jawbone over a period of time.

Once a few months have passed, an abutment will be attached to the implant stud under the guidance of your dentist. The abutment acts as an extension that connects your new crown to the implant stud. The crown will then be fabricated after taking precise measurements of the gums and tooth, which is then bonded onto the abutment. The dentist polishes it to provide you with a natural-looking smile.
