Over the past decade, tooth implants have become the standard of treatment when it comes to tooth replacements. The artificial dental implant root is put directly into the spot where the natural tooth was. Slowly the jaw forms new bone tissue (a process called osseointegration) until the dental implant is secured permanently in place. Dental implants can be used to reinforce porcelain crowns, multiple tooth dental bridges and even fixed dentures.
How do dental implants work? The jaw holds the implant post as if it was a natural tooth. After positioning, the spot heals up until it is secured enough to hold up the permanent dental implant prosthesis. Then, the restoration is placed over the implant abutment to return function as well as appearance. Whether a crown or bridge, each one is made to feel and appear just like a natural tooth.
A successful dental implant treatment greatly depends upon the overall health and devotion of the patient. For example, patients will need to have relatively healthy bone tissue levels, stable health and limited tobacco use. This approach motivates healthy placement and recovery, for the best long-term results. In many instances, dental implants will last a full life-time!
When finalized, dental implants can support more weight when compared to a genuine tooth. The process usually will take multiple appointments involving the surgical placement, a period of healing, abutment set up and then delivery of the fixed restoration. Osseointegration usually calls for 3-6 months of undisturbed recovery time.
