Dental implants are teeth replacement procedures that will give you back the facial structure that you have lost. Dental implants are tiny titanium screws that are placed on the jawbone to act as a natural tooth. Our dental team will use dental implants when you have lost the teeth. Here at Detailed Dental Care we are dedicated to ensuring that your facial structure is restored by dental implants. Do not hesitate to call us for this procedure.
Candidate for Dental Implants
You are a candidate for dental implants if you have lost teeth or you have a set of missing teeth. Missing teeth can be because of a number of reasons such as having trauma to the mouth. You can also have missing teeth if you have tooth cavities that eventually lead to tooth decay and finally tooth loss. Periodontal gum disease is also one reason why you can lose your teeth. If you have experienced this problem then you need dental implants. Dental implants are made to look like natural teeth and function just like natural teeth. After you have had the implant surgically placed on the jawbone, the dentist places a connector on the teeth, called an abutment, and finally, a crown on your teeth. If you are not a candidate for dental implants, the dentist will come up with other treatment options for your condition.
What is Bone Grafting During Dental Implant Treatment?
Many people hear the term “bone grafting” closely associated with dental implant treatment. Bone grafting is a surgical operation that seeks to increase the bone tissue in your jaw. It is a requirement for people who do not have enough gum and bone tissue. Before getting dental implants our dentist will thoroughly examine your dental condition. If they determine that you do not have enough bone and gum tissue to support implants they will recommend a bone grafting operation.
The bone tissue can be sourced from another part of your body. It is then transferred to the area of your jaw where our dentist feels that you do not have enough bone tissue. You will therefore wait for a time as you allow full recovery for the bone grafting region to heal. You will be making frequent visits to the clinic as our dentist monitors your condition. Once you fully recover from the bone grafting procedure, this is the time you can receive your dental implants.
You Require Skilled Dental Surgeons
The techniques used in dental implant treatment requires the care of an experienced dental surgeon. From bone grafting and making incisions into your gums, dental implant treatment is a complex and intricate operation. It is therefore paramount that you seek the intervention of not only qualified but highly skilled dental experts for effective treatment.
