A dental implant is made of a titanium rod that is attached and fused to the jawbone. Titanium is a biocompatible material, meaning there are no risks of allergies and the body will not fight this new material. Once it has properly fused and the healing process is complete, a dental crown can be attached to replace a missing tooth.
Dental implants can also be used to keep other dental appliances in place. Bridges and dentures can be attached to the implants in order to give a more secure fit in the mouth and also gives the wearer more confidence.
Many patients are eligible to receive dental implants, but certain conditions like gum disease can prevent the procedure from being successful. A consultation with the dentist is the way to find out if implants can help you.
After an incision in the gum tissue, a drill is used to create the pilot hole for the implant. When it is confirmed to be in the proper position, the hole is made larger until the implant can be inserted into place. It is allowed to heal and once healed, the crown can be affixed to the top.
Dental implants are the ideal way to replace missing teeth and help keep the rest of the mouth healthy.
