What Are Dental Implants Exactly?
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that can be surgically anchored into your jaw to permanently secure a replacement tooth, bridge, or denture. Implants are made from biocompatible titanium. There are different types of dental implants. Traditional dental implants are placed directly into the jaw bone like your natural tooth roots, and mini dental implants, which are used when the jaw structure is limited and a custom-made metal framework fits directly over the existing bone below the gum line.
How Are Dental Implants Placed?
Dr. Banda will perform minor surgery to place and anchor the implant into or on your jaw bone. The procedure can be completed in- office with local anesthesia. Once the implant is placed it will remain covered until it can fully fuse with your natural bone. After the implant heals, Dr. Banda will uncover the implant and attach an extension, or abutment post. With some dental implants, the implant and post are actually a single unit placed in the mouth during the initial procedure. In either case, to complete your restoration, Dr. Banda will provide an artificial tooth, or dental crown, to cover the implant post and complete your permanent tooth loss solution.
Why Choose New Dental Implants over Other Tooth Replacement Methods?
Dental implants don’t rely on neighboring teeth for support like dental bridges, and they are more permanent and stable than dentures. Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth, and they are the only tooth replacement solution which can actually preserve your natural bone and youthful facial features.
The dental implants process can take anywhere from a single appointment to several months, depending on the type of implant you need. Don’t put off the reliable tooth replacement solution you need any longer; schedule your dental implants consultation appointment with Dr. Banda at Cranbrook Dental Care today.
