Throughout the past ten years, tooth implants have come to be the standard of proper care when it comes to tooth replacements. The substitute dental implant root is placed straight into the spot where the natural tooth was. Gradually the jaw forms new bone (a process called osseointegration) until the dental implant is secured permanently in place. Dental implants may be used to reinforce porcelain crowns, multiple tooth dental bridges and even fixed dentures.
How do dental implants work? The jaw supports the implant post as if it were a natural tooth. After positioning, the area heals until it is secure enough to support the long lasting dental implant prosthesis. Then, the restoration is placed over the implant abutment to bring back both function as well as good looks. Whether a crown or bridge, they are all designed to feel and look just like a natural tooth.
An effective dental implant treatment greatly depends on the overall health and dedication of the patient. For example, patients will need to have reasonably healthy bone tissue levels, stable health and limit tobacco usage. This approach encourages healthy positioning and healing, for the best long-term final results. In most cases, dental implants can last an entire life-time!
When finalized, dental implants can support even more weight when compared to a genuine tooth. The treatment usually requires several appointments regarding the surgical placement, a period of restorative healing, abutment installation and then delivery of the fixed restoration. Osseointegration usually demands three to six months of uninterrupted recovery time.
