Dental implants are a permanent solution for tooth loss and replace missing teeth. They are surgically implanted into the jawbone, where they act as artificial tooth roots. The dental implant can support a variety of restorations, including dentures and dental crowns. 

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants provide patients with a wide range of benefits, including:

  • Restoring their smile and confidence
  • Improving their ability to speak and eat
  • Preventing and correcting bite issues
  • Protecting remaining teeth from damage
  • Avoiding the need for dentures

Dental Implant Procedure

A dental implant procedure is the surgical placement of an artificial tooth root into the jaw bone of a patient. This procedure is undertaken to provide a permanent base for fixed or removable replacement teeth.

The first step of this procedure is a consultation with the dentist. This consultation allows the dentist to assess the patient’s dental condition and determine whether a dental implant is suitable. A comprehensive dental examination which involves taking X-rays of the mouth and jaw is performed before drafting the patient’s treatment plan. Then, impressions of the teeth are taken and sent to the dental lab for the fabrication of the artificial prosthesis.

The implant is surgically placed into the jawbone in the subsequent appointment. This is an outpatient procedure that is performed by numbing the treated area. The implant is then allowed to heal over the next two to three months. It will fuse with the jawbone during this time. Once the implant has fused with the jawbone, the dentist will uncover it and add an abutment and implant crown to the post.

Recovery and Healing From Dental Implant Surgery

After dental implant surgery, patients can expect mild to moderate postoperative pain. This can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications prescribed by the dentist. A soft food diet is recommended for the first few days after surgery. However, patients can resume a normal diet once they are able to chew comfortably. Any dietary restrictions should be discussed for a better healing process.

The dentist will also recommend the patient refrain from damaging habits like smoking as it can slow down the healing process and cause other complications.
