Things You Need to Know Before Getting New Dental Implants


Posted on 11/25/2019 by Vladana Babcic Tal DMD
Things You Need to Know Before Getting New Dental ImplantsIf you've chosen to undergo a dental implant placement procedure, then you should ideally know what it's about, its benefits, the recovery period, and how to take care of the implants.

Important Things to Know About Before Getting Dental Implants

If you've already made up your mind to go for dental implants, then you may already know a fair bit about what the implants are and what the procedure entails. If you don't, then know that dental implants are made of titanium and they are screwed into the jawbone under the gumline. A bridge or replacement tooth is mounted on the implant. Unlike bridges, dental implants are anchored to the bone and not to the adjacent tooth.

Healthy gums are a prime requirement for dental implants. In the absence of enough bone material to hold the implant in place, the dentist may have to carry out a bone grafting procedure. This can lengthen the process, because the implant can be added only after the grafted bone has become one with the existing bone.

Implants do not shift, they are stable. You can follow the same oral hygiene routine as you would with natural teeth. Implants help preserve the natural shape of your face. They help preserve bone density of the jawbone.

The ideal subject for a dental implant does not suffer from chronic illnesses like diabetes and is a non-smoker. The implant placement is carried out at the dentist's office. Local anesthesia is administered. The artificial crown is placed after up to six months, more if a bone graft has been added.
