Implants are very progressive artificial tooth and root restorations used to supplant any lost or missing teeth. A titanium cylinder is positioned in the bone to perform as the tooth's new root. Subsequently a new restoration like a crown or a bridge can be positioned ontop of the cylinder to resemble an organic tooth. This new tooth will allow the individual all of the previous functioning experienced with authentic teeth.
Generally, implants will be utilized to replace a single tooth, but on occasion, many different implants may be inserted together and subsequently bridged to supplant the space of many missing teeth. These implants will be used as an anchor for the fixed bridge with false teeth being integrated into the bridge as well. Implants might also be implemented if all the teeth happen to be missing from either the lower or upper arch. A couple of implants need to be placed in the jaw bone, over which a prosthetic denture is connected giving the sufferer a full compliment of teeth.
To make ideal candidates for tooth implants, patients must satisfy certain standards. Individuals have to be non-smokers, be of good health and have adequate bone structure surrounding the implant site. Very meticulous examination is a necessity to establish whether or not the donor area will be fitting. This procedure might entail thorough dental and possibly health exams along with a full spectrum of digital x-rays of the specified area.
A tooth implant procedure includes an appointment to have a titanium cylinder placed in the jaw bone. Then a period of healing lasting four to six months with monitoring required to make certain that the body has completely accepted the dental embed. When the healing has finished, the crown or bridge can subsequently be positioned on top of the foundation cylinder, giving the client a fully functional false tooth.
In a number of incidences (more specifically for front teeth), the tooth could need immediate extraction, then the restoration can be positioned at the same time. In this instance a small detachable partial denture is built for wear as the insert finishes integrating with the jawbone.
