What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth. They are designed to support a range of dental restorations including crowns, bridges and even dentures.

Generally made from titanium, the implant is a screw or cylinder that is surgically inserted into the jaw bone to serve as the root for the replacement tooth. Fixed to the top of the implant is the abutment, which connects the crown bridge or denture to the implant.

The Implant Process:

Implant therapy typically involves a number of stages, with repeated visits over a period of months.

  1. Assessment: Your dentist or periodontist will provide a detailed examination to determine if you are suitable for dental implants and decide on the appropriate course of treatment.
  2. Implant Insertion: The implant is surgically inserted into the jawbone. This may involve one or two surgeries depending on bone conditions and individual circumstances.
  3. Preparing Replacement Teeth: Once the gums have healed, an impression is taken, which is used to create a crown or bridge that will fit with the existing teeth.
  4. Crown/Bridge Fitting: The crown or bridge is fitted to the implant abutment and checked for secure fit and functionality.
  5. Follow-up Appointments: To ensure implant stability and patient comfort, several follow up appointments will usually be scheduled.

After Care

Just like natural teeth, diligent home care and maintenance care is essential to ensuring the long life of the implant. In some cases, peri-implant diseases can lead to gum inflammation and damage to the bone and tissues near the implants. Our gum specialists can provide you with a tailored care and maintenance plan, which includes things to watch out for.
