How Are Dental Implants Fixed?

How Are Dental Implants Fixed?


The first thing you notice in any person you come across is the smile. A healthy smile is very important and your attitude also is determined the way you smile.

Loss of teeth is a major cause for a gloomy non-smiling face as missing teeth will lead you to an embarrassing situation. Missing teeth need timely correction at the earliest. Dental implants are the right choice to replace missing teeth. Dental implants are the closest you can get to healthy, natural teeth. They allow you to live life the way you did before you lost a tooth. Bring back your confidence while you eat, smile, laugh, talk, kiss, and enjoy all of your normal daily activities without worrying about a missing tooth. If your jawbone is strong enough, dental implants can be used to restore anything from a single missing tooth to 28 missing teeth or even more.

Dental Implants are small screws made of Titanium, to be fitted into the jaw bone. They are called fixtures. The surface layer of the implant is crafted to allow human bone cells to grow around and secure a perfectly fitting place in the jaw bone. The purpose of the implant fixture or metal screw is to support another component called the abutment, which in turn helps in fixing the prosthesis. A prosthesis is nothing but an artificial tooth-like structure called a crown which is fixed over the abutment, allowing you to chew and bite. Generally, they are made of porcelain or ceramic and are designed to blend with your natural teeth.

Dental Implants are fixed on a precise exceptional dental surgical procedure.  During surgery, we will inject a local anesthetic in the implant area to ensure the numbness of the area. Then our skilled oral surgeon will make a small opening in the gums to expose the jaw bone. Then drill a small hole into your jawbone and carefully place the implant into the bone. The gum is then placed over the implant so it can heal. After 2 weeks, it will be checked for healing.  After the area surrounding the implant has healed, a second surgery will be done to fit the abutment into the top of the implant. This may take 3 or 4 weeks. And finally, the crown will be placed on top of the abutment. The crown is connected to the abutment with special dental cement and a small screw if needed.

Your Dental Implants are made out of high quality imported durable materials, but you should still take care of them to make sure they last. Regular brushing and flossing at least twice a day to remove food particles from your mouth is very essential and also keeps your gums healthy. Though having a mouthful of natural, healthy teeth is the preference, if that's no longer possible, Dental Implants are the next best thing. For a single tooth, this will normally be an Implant-Supported Dental Crowns. For multiple teeth, we would normally do an Implant-Supported Dental Bridges or an Implant-Supported Removable Denture.
