Dental implants are a innovative artificial root and tooth fixtures utilized to replace a missing or lost tooth. For a missing tooth, we could at this time resurrect a titanium cylinder inside the jaw bone to act as the root. A ceramic cap could subsequently be inserted on top of the cylinder to resemble a natural tooth. This will permit a patient to have a fully functional tooth akin to an organic tooth.
Most commonly tooth implants are utilized to supplant a sole missing tooth. In the occasion that multiple teeth are missing, a few implants can be inserted and bridged together. The implants might also be utilized as the base for a bridge and a artificial tooth can be integrated within the fixed bridge. Implants may also be implemented if all the teeth happen to be missing from either the lower or upper arch. Several implants have to be positioned in the jawbone, over which a prosthetic denture is secured giving the client a full compliment of teeth.
Patients who would make an ideal candidate for implants are dependent on firm specific criteria. Clients must not be smokers, be of good overall health and have sufficient bone structure for the implant site. Very meticulous examination is a requirement to determine whether the donor site will be compatible. This procedure may entail thorough dental and perhaps health exams along with a full spectrum of digital radiographs of the specified area.
The opening dental appointment is required to position the titanium cylinder within the jaw bone. Subsequently the client is allotted about three to six months of healing time to permit the bone to fuse with the titanium alloy. As soon as the healing is accomplished, the bridge or crown is subsequently inserted over top of the cylinder to give the client a fully functional artificial tooth.
In many instances, traditionally for anterior teeth, the tooth will require immediate removal, at which time the fixture could also be inserted. In this case, a temporary detachable denture can be created to be worn while the implant fuses into the jawbone.
