Who doesn't long for an attractive and beautiful smile that is full and complete?
Missing teeth need not to stop you from achieving the smile and confidence you need to show off your healthy smile. With implants in the picture, it is easy enough to replace your missing teeth with artificial ones in a brief period of time. Dental implants are helping patients achieve their beautiful smile across the world today.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are a strong screw-like implant that acts as artificial roots to function as a base to support artificial teeth in place of missing ones.
Are implants a guarantee for teeth replacement, if so, how long would they last?
Implants can guarantee a safe and well-established teeth replacement option. The longevity of your implants would directly be on the basis of how well you take care of them.
What is the process involved in getting dental implants?
Implants are placed over the missing teeth surface in a surgical manner. The patient would be administered with local anesthesia. A minor incision would be made where the implant must go into. Once placed within the jawbone, it will be securely stitched and advised a certain healing period to help them fuse into the jawbone. Post-healing, the patient would have to revisit the dentist, and it will be during this consultation that the dentist would place the artificial tooth.
What are the types of implants?
Implants can be broadly classified into "Endosteal" implants and "Subperiosteal" implants. The former are directly implanted (surgically) into the jawbone whereas the latter consists of a metal frame that is simply fitted into the jawbone just below the gum tissue. Both offer good durability and fit.
