A dental implant acts as a replacement tooth providing a strong foundation for permanent or removable teeth that look just like your natural teeth.
Certain dental services are as follows:
After the loss of upper back teeth, your sinuses may enlarge in size. The lost teeth are replaced before new implants; a sinus starts swelling. This relocates graft the sinus cavity into its actual position and replaces the bone that has been lost due to the enlarged sinus. It takes nine to twelve months for the new bone graft to heal before the dental implants can be placed into the grafted bone.
Sometimes, the areas where dental implants are to be carried out, do not have enough bone quantity to be expected to be placed for the implants. In such cases, it is often necessary for the deficient area to get grafted by "borrowing" bone from another area of your mouth. The area chosen for borrowing bone is usually from the chin or in the back of the jaw where wisdom teeth are.
Due to infection when a tooth needs to be removed, it is common to have bone loss around the infected tooth. In such cases, certain types of bone grafting can be done at the same time the tooth is removed to easy placement of a dental implant later.
The bone quality, bone quantity, and bone location for the best possible placement are assessed with the help of a 3D software for dental implants. This gives an idea to your restorative dentist to work closely and smoothly to ensure the best result for your dental implants.
It is essential to keep the dental implant restoration area clean and free of infection after the surgery. Once after the dental implants, there are chances for your teeth to get plaque and tartar. Professional cleanings will be essential to keep your implants stay healthy, no matter if you are getting one tooth replaced by an implant or several. The time will be allotted for these professional cleanings will be determined by your individual needs.
