Tooth Implant – An Affordable and Long-Lasting Solution to Replace Missing Teeth
Tooth Implant are a revolutionary advancement in dentistry. They can be used to replace one tooth, multiple teeth, or even all of them. Implants are surgically embedded inside the jawbone and made out of titanium; acting as an artificial root system to which new teeth are anchored.
Different Types of Tooth Implants
Root Implant :-This type of Tooth Implant is the most frequently used in implant dentistry. It replicates the shape and size of a patient’s natural tooth, after local anesthesia has been administered, the dentist makes an incision into the gum to gain access to the jawbone. With great precision, they insert the Tooth Implant into place by stitching up any necessary incisions on either side and prescribing any medication if necessary.
The Osseo integration process, which usually takes three to six months, involves the jawbone attaching itself to a Tooth Implant. Once integration is complete, the Tooth Implant can be fitted with your new tooth.
Plate Form Implant:The Plate form implant is another option in implant dentistry, ideal when the jawbone is too narrow to support a root implant. Unlike its root counterpart, which is long and narrow, this Tooth Implant can be secured directly onto thin jawbones without waiting for Osseo integration period. Insertion process for plate Tooth Implants is similar to that for root implants; however in certain cases they can be immediately fitted with restoration after placement without waiting for integration period.
Subperiosteal implant: When the jawbone has receded to a point where it no longer supports an implant that will last, subperiosteal implants may be used instead. These implants sit atop and in the gum line rather than going through it like other tooth Implants do. After injecting local anesthesia, your dentist takes an impression of your mouth and jawbone which dental labs then create custom-fitted implants from that impression. Your dentist then exposes the jawbone before inserting the Tooth Implant over it; gums will naturally grow around it over the following month. In some cases this same kind of implant may even be made through one procedure using CAT scans which scan both jawbone and gum line simultaneously!
Preservation Is Key
Good oral hygiene is always important, but it is especially critical after an implant has been placed in the jaw. Without proper cleaning and care of teeth and gums, bacteria can build up in these delicate areas causing gums to expand and jawbones to recede slowly over time.
