What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a small, titanium post that is surgically placed in the jawbone beneath the gum line. This post will fuse with the jawbone that creates a strong foundation for restoring the teeth. A dental implant helps to replace the missing tooth root. Not only does it help to fuse with bone like a root but it helps to preserve and stimulate the bone structure.
Typically, this is a single crown that replaced the tooth, and it supports the multiple missing teeth with dentures and bridges. You need to take proper care of the implants, and they last for a long time. If you are looking for an effective treatment then you should visit our dental clinic.
Different Types of Dental Implants
- Use a single dental implant
The dental implant is used to replace a single missing tooth that requires one post and one crown. What about its process:
- One of our dental experts is going to consult you to determine whether you are a good candidate or not. If so, then you will get a customized treatment plan so that your issue is solved.
- The post will be placed in the jawbone with the surgical-guided technology. During the procedure, you should not feel pain and the dentist makes sure you are comfortable. The healing time is around 3 to 4 months to fuse with the bone correctly.
- One healing is done, the custom-designed is created to correct the issue. Your new teeth are going to look the same just like the surrounding teeth.
Implant-supported bridge for several teeth
Typically, a dental bridge contains 2 crowns that are on either side of the missing tooth gap with the artificial tooth and it is held by the crowns. Instead of the crown, the implant-supported bridge has a crown which connects the dental implants. The procedure is the same as a single tooth dental implant.
The benefits of an implant-supported bridge are you can replace the multiple missing teeth with a single row which means not all the teeth need to be replaced. If you are facing a problem then you need to consult the dentist and he is going to give you the best treatment plan for your condition.
Implant-retained denture for all the teeth
A denture is an artificial teeth arch that sits on the gum line and gives the look you have a full set of teeth. Traditional dentures are removable which means they can click, slip, fall out, and all the daily tasks become uncomfortable that includes talking and eating.
Our dentist will place the dental implant with the arch. Till the time healing is completed, the current denture is modified so that the healing process is corrected. Once the healing is done, you will get custom-denture that makes the dental implants faster. Its results are secure and permanent which means they fit your facial aesthetics correctly.
