A good way to describe dental implants is “artificial tooth root.” The actual implant replaces the root of a missing tooth, and are a natural looking replacement for supporting a single tooth crown above the gum line. Dental implants are also a way to anchor dental bridges and full or partial dentures.
Dental implants also have similar restorative options that you have with your natural teeth. These options allow for single or multiple tooth replacement, dental bridges, and full or partial dentures.
What to Expect from Dental Implants
With the advancement of dental technology, dental implants have been gaining popularity in recent years. Dental implants are made of titanium, which is a bio-compatible material that bonds to bone. Titanium allows the implant to stabilize firmly in the jaw while also promoting bone growth. Bonding the implant solidly to the jaw bone, creating a stable artificial root upon which the crown is placed on top of. The dental implant looks and feels like your natural tooth, and have a 97% success rate.
There are a number of factors that will determine how long and how many visits it will take. The doctor will explain these factors thoroughly to you during your initial dental implant consultation. For instance one dental implant will typically take about 2 hours from start to finish. You will be provided with a list of instruction from the dentist for before and after the operation. It’s also important to let the doctor know about any medical conditions you may have.
Are Dental Implants Painful?
Like with any surgical procedure there may be some discomfort. However, we will make sure your are as comfortable as possible by providing you with a local anesthesia or an oral sedative. The doctor will also prescribe medication to ease the discomfort after the procedure. Most patients have reported being more comfortable than anticipated during and after the dental implant surgery.
