What are dental implants?
With time, tooth loss may become an issue for some people. Whether it’s due to age, disease or tooth decay, losing teeth is never fun and may cause discomfort and low self esteem in some cases. Dental implants are some of the most sought after dental treatments due to their ability to restore some of that shine, their efficiency and convenience. The implant procedure is one that gives an appropriate solution to those missing a tooth, or an entire set.
Dental implants can be mini or full, depending on the problem presented to the dentist at the time. The implants themselves are artificial tooth roots which are inserted into the jawbone using a simple and pain free procedure. The implants are custom made to suit an individual’s needs, and can be designed to feel completely natural once fitted. With material such as titanium being used in some cases to make implants, they are guaranteed to last for a long while, while offering the same strength and comfort real teeth would.
Before a dentist can successfully place the implants into the jawbone, they have to make sure the jawbone can accept the implant. This is done by making a ‘site’ in the mouth where the implant will be placed, then drilling a hole to fit the implants. With the administration of local anesthesia, the whole procedure is pain free, and will take a short while.

What are the risks?
Complications from dental implants are very rare. Problems can occur after the dental implants have been installed, with the most common complications being infection. These infections may cause the gum to weaken, thus making the implant useless, and in some other cases, the infections may lead to tooth decay. It is therefore important to have regular checkups with the dentist to ensure the implants heal well without causing harm to the rest of the teeth.
Dental tooth implants are highly durable and comfortable if cared for well. The basic oral hygiene steps apply for dental implants as well; brush regularly and maintain an overall good oral hygiene. The implants will not be a disturbance to the adjoining teeth, and will further serve to protect them.
How long will it take to replace my teeth using implants?
Replacing a tooth using an implant is usually done in two parts. During your first appointment, the actual implant is placed. This procedure takes about an hour and consists of placing a post into the bone which is then allowed to heal. For some patients who have been missing a tooth for an extended period of time, it may be necessary to perform a bone graft at the implant site. This is a common procedure that will ensure that the patient has sufficient bone in order for the implant to remain secure.
The second part of the procedure can only take place after the implant site has fully healed. This healing time usually takes about 3 months but can be as high as 6 months for some patients.
During the second appointment, the dentist restores the implant by placing a crown on it. The end result is a strong, natural looking and functioning tooth that is visually indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
Replacing missing or decayed teeth is important to boost your oral health and self esteem as well. A dental implant will accomplish this effectively while giving you the confidence to smile and bring radiant energy to the ones around you.
