Dental implants is the best option to replace a single tooth, several teeth, or all of the teeth. The goal of teeth replacement in dentistry is to restore function as well as aesthetics. So, anymore, no need to worry if you missed your teeth in an accident since a dental implant is here. Not only the dental implants look like your natural teeth, but also the implant function like your natural teeth. This cavity-free tooth can long last your lifetime if you maintain it like your other teeth. And it doesn’t require any special maintenance. All you have to do is brush and floss daily twice.
Dental Implant; the Procedure
Your dentist in Balmain will check the condition of your teeth gum’s health. Only if you are a good candidate for implants, your dentist in Balmain will schedule the procedure to take place. If you are a good candidate for dental implants, your dentist will explain the procedure, the time takes, and the cost associated with the dental implant.
The dental implant cost and the length of time needed for an implant procedure will vary based on five factors. They are,
- If there will be a tooth extracted prior to implant placement
- If you need a tooth extraction
- Which teeth are replaced
- The number of teeth involved
- Your dental health
- Location of the Place
Then your dentist in Balmain will take the impression of your teeth jaw along with teeth, which will provide a pretty good replica of your teeth, gums, and surrounding tissues from which to work with. After then, he /she will start the procedure at the dentist’s office under local anaesthesia.
If you need to remove your decay teeth, the dentist will perform a tooth extraction to make the place ready for dental implants. Or your dentist will drill a hole in your jawbone and start the dental implant procedure directly. If it needed, your dentist might have to make an incision in your gum to expose the bone. And for this case, suturing (stitches) will be necessary.
Then he/she will insert the implant deep into your jawbone to serves as an artificial root for your new artificial tooth. If the condition of your jawbone needs a bone graft, then this will also take place with the artificial bone materials.
After the healing process, an abutment is placed on top of implant root to serve as a connector to the crown. The healing abutment is used to keep tissue or bone from growing over the implant as osseointegration takes place. Finally, your permanent crown will be attached to the abutment and voila.
