A dental implant is a prosthesis that fuses with the jawbone in a process known as osseointegration and supports a dental restoration such as a crown, bridge, or denture. The titanium or zirconia implant fixture is first put in place and allowed to osseointegrate, and then the dental restoration is attached to it. At Healthy Smile Dental Care, our skilled and experienced dentists provide advanced dental implant procedures using the latest technologies.
Types of Dental Implants
The most frequent type of implant utilized nowadays is an endosteal implant. They consist of a titanium post, tiny screws, and alloplastic material, which is an artificial tissue graft.
Subperiosteal implants are relatively uncommon. They may, however, be an alternative for patients who do not have enough natural jawbone to support endosteal implants. A subperiosteal implant is placed on or above the jawbone instead of being surgically implanted in the jawbone.
Dental Implant Procedure
The creation of a tailored treatment plan is the initial step in the dental implant procedure. The plan is tailored to your unique requirements and is created by our team of specialists in oral surgery and restorative dentistry.
The tooth root implant, which is a small titanium post, is then inserted into the bone socket of the lost tooth. As the jawbone heals, it develops around the inserted metal post, securing it in place. The healing process can take anywhere from six to twelve weeks.
After the implant has connected to the jawbone, a small connecting post called an abutment is added to the post to secure the artificial tooth. Our dentist takes imprints of your teeth and produces a model of your bite to create the new tooth or teeth.
Our dentist will also match the color of your new teeth to the color of your original teeth. Because the implant is embedded in the jawbone, the replacement teeth look, feel, and function identically to your natural teeth.
