What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are small posts, typically made from titanium, that act as the replacement for tooth roots. They provide a strong foundation, or anchor, for fixed and removable replacement teeth.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
A tooth implant can offer patients a wide range of benefits. Additionally, dental implants can provide patients with benefits and advantages that other tooth replacement options, such as dentures or bridges, cannot. The benefits of dental implants include, but are not limited to, the following:
- They behave like natural teeth
- They can last a lifetime
- They keep adjacent teeth stable
- They can help keep you free of gum disease
- They can prevent facial sagging and premature aging
- They can help prevent bone loss
What Does a Dental Implant Procedure Look Like?
Most often, dental implant surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure. There are multiple steps to a dental implant procedure, with designated healing times between each. The dental implant procedure involves multiple steps. These steps are as follows:
- The damaged tooth is removed
- The jawbone undergoes preparation
- The dental implant is placed
- Bone growth and healing occur
- The abutment is placed
- The artificial tooth is placed
What To Expect After the Dental Implant Procedure
After a dental implant procedure, it’s common for patients to experience mild discomfort. Some patients may also experience swelling in the gums and face, bruising of the skin and gums, pain at the implant site, or minor bleeding. To remedy this, it’s common for dentists to suggest over-the-counter pain medications or even to prescribe antibiotics. If a patient’s side effects persist for more than a few days, they should be advised to contact their oral surgeon at their earliest convenience.
