When we lose a tooth, we want to get it back as soon as possible, but sometimes we are afraid to go through a surgery because we don’t know how the procedure is.
The development of a treatment plan that is individualized is the very first step in the implant process. Your specific needs are addressed in this plan that is put together by a professional team that are experienced and trained in restorative dentistry and oral surgery. Coordinated care that is based on the best implant option for you is provided in this plan.
The next step that follows is tooth root implant, a small titanium post is positioned in the missing’s tooth bone socket. The jawbone then grows round the metal post as it heals and at the same time it anchors the implant securely. 6-12 weeks is the time that the healing process takes. An abutment, a small connector post, is attached to the post so as to hold the new tooth securely in place once the implant has bonded to the jawbone.
Impressions of your teeth are made by the dentist when making a new tooth or teeth creating a bite model (all your teeth arrangement and type are captured). A crown, also referred to as a replacement tooth, is thereafter attached to the abutment otherwise referred to as the small connector post.
The color of the new teeth is matched to your own teeth. The replacement teeth function, look and feel just like the teeth that you are used to.
Local anesthesia can be used during the procedure. A number of people who have dental implants agree that there is very little discomfort associated with implants. Most of them also agree that tooth extraction is more painful as compared to dental implants. The mild soreness that comes after dental implant process can be treated with over-the-counter pain medications such as Advil or Tylenol.
