A dental implant is a prosthesis that interfaces with the jaw or skull bone to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, denture, or facial prosthesis or to act as an orthodontic anchor. Modern dental implants are based on a biologic process known as osseointegration, in which materials such as titanium or zirconia develop an intimate relationship with bone. The implant fixture is first put to ensure that it will osseointegrate, and then a dental prosthetic is attached. Osseointegration takes a varied amount of time before either the dental prosthesis is linked to the implant or an abutment is placed to hold a dental prosthetic/crown. Dental implants are delivered to patients at Healthy Smile Dental Care by skilled and experienced dentists.
Types of Dental Implants
The most frequent type of implant utilized nowadays is an endosteal implant. They are made of titanium, tiny screws, and alloplastic material, which is an artificial tissue graft.
Subperiosteal implants are relatively uncommon. They may, however, be a preferable alternative for patients who do not have enough natural jawbone to support endosteal implants. A subperiosteal implant is put behind the gums (on or above the jawbone). It is not 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 anything 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 new tooth. Our dentist takes imprints of your teeth and produces a model of your bite to create the new tooth or teeth. This model serves as the foundation for 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.
