Dental implants are a great way to reconstruct a damaged tooth, making the cosmetic effect of having an artificial tooth match your natural tooth. There are many different types of dental implants, and finding the right one can be a daunting task.
The treatment procedure is sometimes called a ‘tenting’ helping implant’. It is the first step in a long-term oral therapy program that offers you and your dentist a chance to teach your body how to accommodate this new tooth.
In the early stages of this treatment procedure, your dentist will drill a small hole into your mouth where the tooth can be placed. It’s important to note that the dentures are not permanent. You can usually choose to have the dentures removed at any time.
Once the hole is made, your dentist will make a small incision where the tooth will be inserted. He or she will then create a little tooth cavity around the implant so it can properly fit.
Once the implant is in place, the bone graft will be put around it. This will secure the implant and keep it from moving.
The dentist will place a special bonding agent over the whole implant. This helps to keep the implant together and prevents it from moving while the bone bonding process is going on.
Some people might choose to have a temporary implant like a crown instead of a permanent one. Many dentists will agree that the temporary implant can be quite beneficial in treating gingivitis.
If your original tooth was badly damaged beyond repair, then you may decide to have a permanent tooth with a ceramic or porcelain shell. Another option is to have dental implants in which the enamel is replaced with a synthetic material.
Any permanent dental implants are best suited for women because the implant will be placed closer to the root of the tooth. This will allow it to heal much more quickly and minimize the risk of infection.
Most dental implants will have a porcelain coating for extra durability. This coating will help protect the implant against damage, but unfortunately it can also create some discoloration if the natural tooth color is still present.
If you’re thinking about having a denture or other type of dental implant, then there are some things you need to consider. Finding the right one can be a stressful and difficult task.
