What Is A Dental Implant?

Dental implants are a permanent solution to missing teeth. Shaped like small screws, they serve the same function as your natural tooth root and serve as a strong foundation for an artificial tooth. Dental implants replace missing teeth permanently and are a good alternative to dentures or dental bridges. As they are built to closely replicate your natural tooth.

How Does the Treatment Process Works in TGD?

Implant Assessment

Detailed assessment on of your jawbone structure will be performed through X-rays to determine whether you are eligible for dental implant.

Bone Graft or Sinus Lift

Depending on patient's jaw bone condition, some may required bone graft or sinus lift. These surgical procedure uses helps to prepare the diseased or damaged jawbones for dental implant.

Dental Implant Insertation

An incision will first be made in the gum tissue to expose the jawbone, followed by drilling a small hole into the bone where the implant will be placed. In some cases, a temporary crown or healing cap may be placed on the implant to protect it during the healing process.

Osseointegration

Following Dental Implant placement, a process called osseointegration occurs, during which the implant fuses with the surrounding bone tissue. The healing typically takes months, providing a stable foundation for the artificial tooth.

Abutment Placement

A second minor surgery may be required to attach an abutment to the implant. The abutment is a small connector piece that protrudes above the gumline and serves as the attachment point for the final restoration.

Prosthesis Placement

After the gums have healed around the abutment, impressions of the mouth are taken to fabricate the final restoration - the artificial tooth. The tooth will be custom-made to match the color, size, and shape of the natural teeth for a seamless appearance.

Frequent Ask Question

How long do dental implants last?
With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last a lifetime. They are designed to be durable and resistant to decay, but regular check-ups and good oral hygiene practices are essential for ensuring their longevity.
Are dental implants painful?
During the procedure, local anesthesia is administered to numb the area, so you shouldn't feel any pain. Afterward, some discomfort and swelling are common, but this can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain medications prescribed by your doctor.
How long does the dental implant process take?
The entire process can take several months to complete. After the initial surgery to place the implant, there is a healing period of about 3-6 months during which the implant fuses with the jawbone. Once this process, called osseointegration, is complete, the replacement tooth or teeth can be attached.
What are the benefits of dental implants compared to other tooth replacement options?
Dental implants offer several advantages, including improved stability and functionality compared to removable dentures or bridges. They also help preserve jawbone density and prevent bone loss, maintaining the natural shape of your face and smile. Additionally, dental implants look and feel like natural teeth, providing a more aesthetically pleasing and comfortable solution for tooth loss.
