Dental Implants with The Woodstock Dentist
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants have been treated as a replacement of missing teeth since the middle of the 1960s. In recent years, the use has increased widely. Dental implants are made of titanium are an artificial root that is used to permanently replace of missing, damaged or unsaveable teeth. A recent research study on clinical experience show that Dental implants are a convenient and safe way to replace the missing teeth and to get a natural look.
Benefits of Dental Implants:
Dental Implants are the most popular and advanced option for tooth replacement. It has some important advantages against traditional Dentures, Crowns, and Bridges.
- Dental Implants neither get cavities nor do they need root canals.
- Implants function like natural teeth and there is no inconvenience with biting or teeth cleaning.
- They look and acts like natural teeth.
- With the presence of Dental Implants, you do not need to use a special glue to hold the false teeth. These are permanent replacement for teeth.
- Dental Implants can be applied to give removable dentures a strong grip.
Success of Dental Implants:
Implants have been used with a high success rate for many decades. As we know, with careful maintenance 95% of Implants can be used for at least 15 years or more. In the recent years, the Titanium alloys and Implant surface technology have developed dramatically and improved Implants success ratio.
What are the involvements of Implant Treatment?
Once you decide to move forward with the Dental Implants, you need to talk to the Dentist. They will conduct a thorough examination of your mouth including taking radiographs of your jaws to assess the condition and shape of your bone tissue as well as allocate the position of any important formation.
Placing of the Implant
Implant surgery consists of either a one-stage or two-stage procedure depending on your circumstances. In either case, we will need to make a small clipping in the gum to expose the bone and shape the implant site, by using a special drill.
Preparation of tooth and impression
After a couple of (almost 6) weeks when your gums are fully healed, the dentist will take another impression of your mouth. This will be used for making the model of your tooth and the dentist will construct the crown or bridges based on the impression.
Fittings for the Crown and Bridge
When your new Crown and Bridges are being prepared, our Dentist will cement them onto the abutment over the Implant. Then it is necessary to check the appearance, whether the upper and lower teeth work together comfortably during biting. Also at this point we can make an tweaks so that you are completely satisfied with the final result.
