frequently asked questions about dental implants
- You have good oral and general health.
- Your jawbone is strong enough to support the implant.
- Your gum tissues are healthy and free of periodontal disease.
- Practising a good oral hygiene routine.
- Non-smoker or willing to halt the habit of smoking.
Sedation. Prior to the placement of the implants, our experienced team will administer local anesthesia to help you feel comfortable throughout the procedure. If a higher amount is necessary, it can be discussed prior to the procedure.
Placing the dental implant. During the dental implant procedure, the dentist will make an incision in your gum to expose the bone. Holes are drilled into the bone to receive the dental implant metal post. Since the implant post will act as the tooth root, it is placed deep into the bone.
Osseointegration. Osseointegration begins once the metal implant post is placed in your jawbone. The jawbone grows onto and joins with the surface of the dental implant throughout this procedure. This process, which can take several months, serves to establish a stable foundation for your new artificial tooth, just as roots do for natural teeth.
The majority of dental implants used today are made of titanium or titanium alloys. The important reason for this is titanium’s excellent biocompatibility. The term “biocompatible” refers to a material that is not toxic or damaging to living human tissues.
Because of its poor electrical conductivity, titanium is one of the most biocompatible materials available today. This property permits it to be very corrosion resistant.
As a result, when titanium implants are implanted into living tissue, they should not corrode or rust. As a result, they are extremely safe and non-toxic to people.
Bacteremia is one of the most common reasons that tooth implants fail. Bacteria can compromise the implant itself during insertion in some situations. Bacteria can then infect the implant site and its surroundings.
General dentists, especially experienced ones, can perform implant procedures. But if you have numerous missing teeth, bone loss, cosmetic issues, or bite issues, you should see a specialist or get their second opinion.
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons, oral surgeons, and periodontists are all certified surgical professionals. A prosthodontist is the qualified specialist for the crown.
