SOMETIME A PERSON MAY WANT TO FILL THE GAP. THAT’S WHERE DENTAL IMPLANTS COME IN.
Dental Implant is a “second permanent tooth”
According to American Dental Association, dental implants are a popular and effective way to replace missing teeth and are designed to blend in with your other teeth. They are an excellent long-term option for restoring your smile. In fact, the development and use of implants is one of the biggest advances in dentistry in the past 40 years. A dental implant is a surgical component that interfaces with the bone of the jaw to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge or a denture.

What is the procedure for Dental Implants?
Dental implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth, several missing teeth or all the teeth in the case of implant supported crowns, bridges or dentures. Generally, there are three steps to getting a dental implant. The process starts with treatment planning (stage 1), surgical (stage 2), bone to implant fusion (stage 3), applying the treatment plan stage (stage 4).
After treatment planning (stage 1) the dentist places the implant surgically in the jawbone (stage 2). This is followed by a period of “osseointegration” which means “combining with bone” and this process takes time (stage 3). During this stage the implant becomes permanently stable as bone grows to the surface of the implant. The final step is the prosthetic phase which starts when the implant is well integrated with the bone and this involves restoring the implant with a crown, bridge or a denture depending on the treatment plan (stage 4). The prosthetic phase of restoring a dental implant requires the equal amount of expertise as surgically placing the implant because of the various biomechanical considerations.
Dental implants are the new standard of care for tooth replacement. Because your teeth affect everything from your smile and confidence, to your ability to eat, speak and participate in the activities you enjoy. Because there is no better option to restore missing teeth, dental implants are an investment well worth considering.
