Dental Implant Surgery – Solution For Your Missing Teeth

by | Nov 29, 2018 | Dental Implants | 4 comments

Thanks to dental implant surgery many people are able to restore form and function to their mouths, when they have missing teeth. Implant surgery is a permanent, comfortable and long lasting tooth replacement option that is becoming increasingly popular over dentures and bridges.

The leading causes of tooth loss include decay, gum disease and traumas or injuries to the teeth, and millions of people around the world have lost one or more teeth.

Dental implants are fast becoming favoured because they create a robust base to attach replacement teeth to.

Why Consider Dental Implant Surgery?

Implants are considered to offer the most stable tooth replacement option because they replace teeth at the roots, which dentures and bridges can’t do on their own.

Other reasons to prefer implants include:

  • They look natural, and fit in with the other teeth in your mouth.
  • They are permanent and will fuse to the jawbone over time.
  • They make eating easier because they don’t move around. You do not need to change your diet and you can bite and chew with the same force as you would do with your natural teeth.
  • No irritation or discomfort. Because of their permanence, dental implants do not move around in the mouth.
  • A heightened sense of self esteem because of the reasons mentioned above, it’s easier and more authentic to smile when you have implants.
  • They do not require special care or different accessories. You can clean and care for your dental implant in the same way you would for your natural teeth
  • They present a long lasting solution.

Thanks to their construction from titanium dental implants can last for many years when they are well looked after.

What Can You Expect From a Dental Implant Surgery?

Your first point of action will be to see a dentist that offers a consultation before any surgery. He will inspect your mouth, take some x rays and chat with you about your medical and dental history. Based on this meeting, and possibly in conjunction with other specialists, depending on your circumstances, he will prepare a custom treatment plan to show you how you can move forward with an implant.

Once you have agreed to the treatment plan and costing the first step of the surgery will be to place the implant. Your implant will be positioned in the bone socket of the missing tooth. After the surgery your jaw will regrow around the implant. This will fasten it into your jaw, and over time, make it as strong as your natural teeth. It can take as long as 12 months for this process to be fully completed.

After the implant is embedded in what is known as osseointegration, your dentist will connect another component called an abutment to the implant. This component will connect the crown and implant to one another.

Your dentist will make a crown to match your natural teeth by taking a cast of your mouth and modelling the replacement on the size, colour, and shape of your other teeth.

Who Is Considered Eligible For Dental Implant Surgery?

To maintain its high success rate and ensure that patients who undergo dental implant surgery will have the best possible experience and outcome a dentist that offers consultation will determine if you match certain eligibility criteria:

  • You practice good dental hygiene
  • You do not have a chronic uncontrolled medical condition
  • You do not have a condition that impedes your body’s ability to heal itself
  • You have enough jaw bone to support your implant, or you can have a bone graft if not enough bone is present.

    Thanks for this. I need to make an appointment with my dentist in two to three weeks. I had cracked molars which have now been extracted and I was really hoping to find out whether implants would be the best choice in replacing them and how the experience would be. I’ve been reading up on a dental bridge and I’m just not keen on that. I think now I’m more convinced to go with implants.

    Thank you for the great post. I’m getting ready to get dental implants so I had some questions regarding them. I was looking at 2 other different methods, dentures and bridges. But now I finally figure out the rationale that my dentist is using for implant treatment. It’s almost like this post is for me, thanks again.
