Implantology is a branch of dentistry that deals with replacing missing teeth with dental implants. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that provide a strong foundation for permanent or removable replacement teeth. They are typically made of titanium and have a screw shape.
Dental implants are tiny titanium posts that are inserted into the jawbone. These implants act as roots for crowns or dentures and can support false teeth that look and function just like natural teeth.
Before the dental implant procedure starts, the dentist will numb the area surrounding the implant with anesthesia. The dentist will then create a small hole in the front of the jawbone where the implant will be inserted. After the implant is placed into the jaw, the gums will naturally heal around it in a process called osseointegration. This process can take anywhere from three to six months to complete.
When all healing is complete, the abutment will be placed on top of the implant. The abutment serves as the base for your new tooth. Once the abutment is in place, an impression will be made of your mouth and sent to the lab where your crown will be made. The final step is placing the crown on the abutment. Your new restoration will look and function exactly like your natural tooth!
Dental implants are small metal posts that fit into your jawbone to support a prosthetic tooth. Unlike dentures, implants are permanent and look as natural as your surrounding teeth. There are many benefits to choosing dental implants over other options.
Dental implants are an excellent restorative dentistry option for patients with one or more missing teeth. However, not everyone is a good candidate for implants. The dentist can help you determine your candidacy for the procedure during a thorough oral health exam. If you are a candidate, our dentist will take x-rays of your smile to determine the condition of your jawbone. The structure of your jaw will also be analyzed to determine if bone grafting is necessary to provide enough support for the artificial tooth root. Bone grafting can improve bone quality and minimize the chance of implant failure or soft tissue recession.
