Understanding the dental implants procedure

  • Understanding the dental implants procedure is
    important if you are considering this treatment.
    It is one of the most effective yet a bit lengthy
    procedures that also require minor surgery as the
    implant has to be placed in the jaw bone for
    restoring the tooth.

3
  • Dental implant surgery is a procedure that
    replaces tooth root with metal posts that are in
    shape of a screw and replaces the damaged or
    missing tooth with an artificial tooth that looks
    and functions like a real one

4
  • The dental implant procedure depends on the type
    of implant and the condition of your jawbone the
    dentist will take several x-rays and digital
    images to ensure that he or she knows the exact
    condition and location of the jawbone to work
    most accurately

5
  • As the major benefit of getting dental implants
    Blackburn is solid support for the new teeth and
    placement of the artificial root in the jawbone
    surgically, this process requires some time so
    the root gets fused to the bone and heals
    completely

6
  • Placing a single implant can take as little as
    half an hour if your jawbone is perfect and does
    not need any work multiple implants can take up
    to 3 to 4 hours

7
  • The dentist will remove the damaged tooth and its
    root and prepare the jawbone if needed. The bone
    will take some time to heal so that the implant
    post is fixed properly for the next step

8
  • The abutment is placement on top of the root over
    which the artificial tooth or the crown will be
    placed this crown is made to fit in with other
    teeth in the mouth and looks and feels exactly
    like a natural one

9
  • The crown is made after the dentist will take the
    size, shape and fit of your teeth in account and
    ensure that this crown fits in perfectly,
    allowing you to bite, chew and eat easily
