Dental implant surgery is a process by which the roots of your teeth are replaced with metal abutments that resemble screws and it’s the optimal solution for replacing your missing natural teeth, restoring your ability to eat and speak with ease, and improving your overall self-confidence. Dental implants offer you an alternative to dentures or bridgework that cannot provide a secure fit, and may be used when the root structure of natural teeth is inadequate for restoring on a denture or bridge.
A person requiring dental implantation surgery may need several procedures and bones work. The jawbone is used to support an implant-supported tooth and must be prepared before placing the implants. Implants can solve many problems such as missing teeth, unattractive dentures, or failing dentures. Such Process will take several months.
Why is it done?
Dental implants are designed to be permanent replacements for missing teeth. Unlike fixed bridges and dentures, dental implants don't slip, make noise, or decay like your natural teeth, and they last a lifetime.
While dental implants are generally highly successful, sometimes the bone around the implant doesn't fuse with it. This may be due to smoking and other variables, and could result in failure of the implant. If this occurs, the implant will be removed and the area examined. The surgery may be repeated several months later.
