How Do Dental Implants Work?
Dental implants are considered the gold standard in tooth replacement for multiple reasons. First is the aesthetic benefit you’ll reap from replacing a missing tooth, with a natural looking crown. The artificial tooth will complete your smile and prevent your adjacent teeth from moving into the empty space.
However, dental implants play an even more significant role than simply correcting gaps in your smile. Indeed, dental implants help improve your oral health. This is because when you are missing a tooth your jawbone begins to deteriorate as it is not needed to support the tooth.
Dental implants slow and prevent the further loss of jawbone my mimicking the function of your tooth root. During your implant surgery, a biocompatible titanium screw will be placed in your jawbone. After the screw is placed in your jaw, you won’t know it, but a remarkable process will begin taking place as you recover from surgery.
Known as osseointegration, your jawbone cells and gums will grow up and around the screw to bond it to your jawbone. After 2-6 months, the screw will be fully integrated, and ready to support a false tooth (crown). You’ll return to the office, for an examination and for the placement of your permanent tooth.
During this appointment, a natural looking artificial tooth will be attached to your implant. If you have multiple missing teeth, your implant may attach to a dental bridge, or to implant supported dentures. You’ll be given care instructions for maintaining the implant. You may need to use a special type of dental floss, along with recommended toothbrushes and toothpastes. You’ll also need to have routine dental exams and cleanings twice a year. But take comfort in knowing that if you practice good oral hygiene, your dental implant may last your whole life.
