What are Dental implants

What are Dental implants?

Dental implants are basically a procedure to insert a titanium/metal screw surgically to replace your missing tooth/teeth. It is an ideal solution if you miss a teeth. The screw is implanted straight into the jawbone and acts as a tooth root. Later, a crown is attached above the post to give the look and feel of an original tooth. These teeth work as normally as your natural ones.

Why should I get an implant?

There can be many incidences in life where one can lose a tooth. These may include poor oral hygiene, tooth decay, trauma, severe gum disease, accidents, etc. These missing teeth need to be treated immediately or else can cause severe problems like:

* The missing tooth creates a gap and hence can cause speech issues.

* You might have trouble chewing solids.

* You might have trouble chewing solids.

* Missing teeth leads to sagging of muscles. These sagged muscles have difficulty in supporting lips and cheeks. This will make your face look older and wrinkled.

* Continuous biting with the missing tooth will result in pain in the jaw and facial muscles.

* The gap will eventually get filled by food which will accumulate into plague resulting in decaying of other teeth and gum diseases.

* The tooth next to the gap might get broken or tilted.

* You will avoid smiling at parties/ public gatherings due to fear of embarrassment. This will lower your self-esteem.

* You will stop participating actively in conversations due to a lack of self-confidence caused by the missing teeth.

Dental implants are suitable for all ages. This procedure will help you overcome all these problems and will bring a perfect smile to your face.

Common types of implants?

1. Endosteal:
In this procedure, a screw is first implanted in the jaw bone. Then the next step is to attach an artificial crown to the screw.

Here, instead of a screw, a metal frame is inserted deep inside the jawbone. The healing process of the gums will take some time and then artificial teeth will be implanted.
