A dental implant serves as a substitute for the missing tooth’s root. It is an artificial tooth root that can replace your missing natural teeth and work in the gums. Dental implant surgery can provide a welcome alternative when the absence of natural teeth precludes the use of dentures or bridging tooth replacements. You can anticipate undergoing several steps when getting dental implants to replace missing teeth.
Complete dental examination
A thorough dental checkup is done during the initial appointment using dental X-rays and 3D pictures. X-rays and scans must be conducted to ascertain the condition of your jawbone and the makeup of your mouth. For instance, a panoramic X-ray aids your dentist or oral surgeon determine the distance between the teeth on either side of the gap. For proper implant implantation, dimensions are crucial.
The dental implant planning is decided upon jointly by the prosthodontist and the maxillofacial surgeon. The state of your jawbone and remaining teeth will dictate the number of required implants and whether or not you require complex surgery. Your medical history, medications, and their impact on your treatment are all noted and assessed. Antibiotics may be given before surgery if necessary to avoid infection.
There are several steps involved in installing a dental implant, including:
Removing a damaged tooth
- Where necessary, bone grafting
- installing dental implants
- The bone around the implant healing
- location of abutments
- implantation of hybrid prostheses or crowns
- Implanting a dental bridge
Depending on the patient’s condition, local anesthetic, sedation, or general anesthesia may be the appropriate pain management technique during surgery. Depending on the type of anesthetic you receive, our dental care staff will advise you on what to eat and drink before the operation. During dental implant placement surgery, your oral surgeon makes a cut to open your gums and reveal the bone. In the predetermined location, the dental implant is inserted into the bone.
Your tooth’s absence will still be visible at this point. For aesthetic purposes, temporary prosthetics can be positioned. This prosthesis can be taken off for cleaning and while you sleep.
Following a dental implant procedure
Following your dental implant surgery, you can feel some of the normal discomforts, such as:
- Your jaw and face are swelling
- your skin and gums becoming bruised
- The implant location hurts
- Small bleeding
Your doctor might suggest antibiotics and painkillers after dental implant surgery. After surgery, you might need to eat soft foods to help the surgical site recover. Smoking can increase the risk of implant problems and failure. After surgery, it’s advised that you stop smoking for a period. Typically, self-dissolving sutures are used by your surgeon. Your doctor will remove your stitches if they don’t fall out independently.
Awaiting bone growth
From beginning to end, the process can take three to six months. Most of this period is spent creating new bone tissue and rearranging the tissues around the implant. Specific steps can occasionally be combined, depending on your circumstances, the specific method, or the materials utilized.
Setting Up the Abutment
After the osseointegration, local anesthetic is applied to the abutment, where the crown will eventually be connected. Where to put the abutment:
The dental implant is connected to the abutment after your oral surgeon opens your gums. The abutment is then covered by the gingival tissue, but not completely. The abutment may occasionally be placed during the dental implant installation procedure. Therefore, you won’t require a second surgical procedure. When abutments may be implanted concurrently with surgery, fixed temporary prostheses can also be created.
Making and Putting an Artificial Tooth in Place
Now is the moment to develop your stunning smile. After healing the soft tissue surrounding the abutments attached to your implants, your doctor will take an impression of your jaws. This makes it possible for our dental ceramist to make you one or more flawless white crowns. When your new crowns are prepared, you visit the dentist for a checkup, and any necessary adjustments will be made. After everything is in place, we will attach your replacement tooth or teeth to the implants. Following your meal, we make the required adjustments to your occlusion and eating technique.
How Should You Maintain Your Dental Implants?
You will need to know how to care for your crowns now that they are fitted. In actuality, there is no distinction between the hygiene of dental implants and the care of natural teeth. By brushing and flossing twice a day, you can maintain the health of your implants just like natural teeth. A titanium implant’s roots can last a lifetime, just like natural teeth can, especially if you visit the dentist every six months for a checkup and a thorough cleaning.
The crown portion of your implant should last 15 years. You should use a night guard and get a Botox treatment if you have habits like grinding your teeth. Avoid chewing on complex objects like ice and hard candies since they can crack your crowns or natural teeth. Avoid goods with coffee and cigarettes, which can discolor teeth.
