What is a dental implant?

A dental implant is a titanium screw that can replace the root of the tooth .

One may require a tooth to be replaced either due to an accident or aging. Dental Implant can support one or more false teeth and is placed into the jawbone.

Dental implants provide a permanent tooth replacement that is long term and durable. It restores full functionality in a natural and aesthetically pleasing manner.

Even though there are several options for tooth replacement, dental implants have certain advantages over crowns, bridges and removable dentures.

Why have dental implants?

Tooth implant doesn’t come loose like a denture and are made to match your natural teeth. It is an ideal option for people who have lost a tooth or have missing teeth when you use an experienced implant dentist.

The advantages are numerous when compared to conventional crowns, bridges and removable dentures:

  • Dental implant looks and feels like natural teeth.
  • Dental implants function in the same way as natural teeth.
  • After implants have stabilized, patients can enjoy a diet without restrictions
  • The patient has no difficulties with eating or cleaning the teeth.
  • Also, it does not require the support of healthy adjacent tooth or teeth.
  • Finally, implant maintains the structure of the bone beneath the replaced tooth.
  • Also, it helps to stimulate the natural process of bone renewal.

Tooth Implant process and procedure

Dental Implants are usually made of titanium which is very strong and readily accepted by human tissues. The dentist inserts the implant into the jaw and then leaves it for around 3-4 months. After this period, the bone to integrates with the tooth implant, creating a strong anchor for the replacement tooth.

After the bone has integrated with the dental implant, the treatment is completed with a finely sculpted tooth replacement tooth known as a crown that is screwed or cemented onto the implant by your dentist or prosthodontist. The result is a very strong, durable and natural looking replacement tooth. Also, it functions and appears just like a real tooth.

Dental implant surgery success factors
Common factors that help in the success of implant dentistry include:

  1. Adequate bone support—Bone density is one of the most important factors for dental reconstruction success.
  2. Healthy Gums – It’s important to have healthy gums since dental implants fit into the jawbone just below the gum tissue.
  3. Good overall health— It is important that you are in good health as implant dentistry requires a surgical procedure and good health helps in the healing process of the implant.
