Dental implants are artificial tooth replacements that are designed to provide a foundation for new false teeth, which look natural and function like your biological teeth.
At the base of dental implants are implant posts made of titanium and secured surgically into the jawbone where teeth are missing. Because your existing bone bonds with the titanium posts a strong foundation is created to hold the substitute teeth in place. Dental implants are not just cosmetic as the can help preserve your facial structure and prevent the deterioration of bone, which occurs when teeth are missing.
An abutment is attached to the implant, which projects through the gums. The abutment provides a stable anchor for the replacement tooth. Generally, implants can be inserted under local anaesthetic with very little to no post-operative pain.
Here at Smart Smile Dental, our experienced dental surgeons have extensive experience in implant dentistry. They are well-informed, with cutting-edge implant dentistry information, training, and techniques.
Candidates for Dental Implants
During your implant consultation, mention to your dentist if you smoke, are currently suffering from a health condition, or if you take any medications. You are an ideal candidate for dental implants if you have:
- Healthy gums
- Sufficient bone tissue in the jaw
- Good dental and overall health
- Commitment to stop smoking, especially when you undergo the osseointegration stage
- Commitment to healthy habits and good dental care
The First Step to Getting Dental Implants
During the initial consultation your dentist will determine if you are a suitable candidate for implants. Your Deer Park dentist will discuss your health history including the goals of the treatment.
This is followed by a comprehensive examination to check the health and condition of your jawbone and gums. Your dentist will also check if you need any further procedures such as bone grafting or gum surgery.
These and other steps are vital part of the procedure to ensure that the entire treatment process is successful. It takes around 2 to 6 months for the implant to fuse to the bone (the osseointegration process). The treatment will be completed with a tooth restoration attached to the implant.
