Your smile is the best feature that you carry around. Sometimes, you tend to face challenges that may ruin this attractive feature. They may be aging, fine lines, wrinkles, and missing teeth. Missing teeth can impact your smile, teeth function, and mouth aesthetics. It may even affect the way that you express yourself.
Losing your teeth is a natural phenomenon. It may be the result of an injury, decay, dental trauma, or internal tooth decay. Sometimes, teeth, when completely decayed, would require to be extracted.
Teeth lost because of damage or injury can be replaced with the advances in implant dentistry. Dental implants offer a superior means of replacing your lost or damaged teeth.
Replacing missing teeth with dental implants is a process that takes place over one or two appointments. The traditional procedure would involve replacing your natural tooth root with an artificial device known as the "implant". The implant would be made out of Titanium material, a harmless metal that can withstand the tissues of the jawbone.
Once surgically embedded into the jawbone, the implant would be attached to an abutment. The abutment acts as a connector between the implant and the new restoration. The artificial tooth would be attached to the abutment restoring the lost tooth.
And naturally, after having embedding the implant into the jawbone, the patient would be advised to wait for a few weeks before coming in for the next appointment. Until then, the patient would have to wear a temporary crown.
During the next appointment, the dentist would remove the temporary crown, and replace it with the permanent ones. It is a lengthy process, don't you agree?
