If you are missing a tooth due to an injury, periodontal disease, or another cause, you may be a great candidate for dental implants.
Dental implants are an effective and long-lasting option to close the gaps in your beautiful smile.
Often thought of as man-made anchors, dental implants resemble a natural tooth when it's surgically placed in the missing tooth roots.
Many people who are considering dental implants would like to know the process.
In general, the implant process consists of a few simple steps.
Step 1: Placement Of The Dental Implant
During this step, the dentist will surgically position the implant into your jaw bone. Since dental implants will be fused into your jawline, they offer amazing support for replacement teeth.
Step 2: The Healing Process
After the dentist places the implant into your jawbone, the healing process needs to occur. As soon as the healing process is complete, a long-lasting replacement tooth can be secured to the dental implant.
For some patients, the replacement tooth can be attached to the implant in the same visit. Other patients may need to wait until the bone grows around the implant so that it's more secure. The exact length of the healing process largely depends on the kind of dental implant that is inserted and then specific location of the replacement tooth.
To encourage a smooth healing process, the dentist may suggest consuming soft foods.
Step 3: Replacing Missing Teeth
If you're receiving a single tooth implant, your dentist will custom make a dental crown for you.
The dental crown should easily blend in with your other teeth, so the custom one will be based on the color, size, and shape of your natural teeth.
Once the custom dental crown is successfully made, the replacement tooth will be placed on the implant.
