What Is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is an artificial replacement for the root of a natural tooth. The implant is used in tandem with a natural-looking crown to help replace one or more teeth to restore function and appearance.
Dental implants can provide a more comfortable, healthy, and aesthetically pleasing look compared to traditional bridges and dentures and do not need to be attached to another tooth.
Exploring the Dental Implant Process
The first step in your dental implant journey is visiting your dental professional for a teeth, gum, and jawbone evaluation. This initial visit is important to determine whether your jawbone is healthy enough to maintain the implant.
If your dentist agrees that you're a good candidate for a dental implant, you can expect more than one appointment over several months.
Placing the Implant
Your dentist will take digital X-rays and impressions of your teeth and mouth to determine the exact shape, size, and angle of the implant needed to help you look and feel your best.
The procedure will begin with removing any damaged tissue or bone to make room for the implant to be placed into your jawbone. Following placement, your dental professional will discuss the next steps with you.
The Healing Process
Following implant placement, your natural jawbone typically takes a few months to strengthen and grow around the dental implant. A natural-looking crown will also be placed to top off your new dental implant.
The entire process can span several months to ensure your gums and jawbone have had enough time to heal along the way. You may require a minor outpatient procedure to have a post placed if needed, which is what the crown will attach to.
Caring for Your Dental Implants
In the days following your dental implant procedure, you may experience some of the usual side effects associated with dental surgery, such as swelling, discomfort, bruising, or minor bleeding. Avoiding hard foods and chewing ice can also help preserve your crown and implant health.
Visiting your dentist regularly and practicing good oral hygiene can help you make the most of your implants!
