What Is The Dental Implant Process Like?
The dental implant surgery is a short operation performed by a trained dental professional. It is an outpatient procedure that is carried out under local anesthesia. It involves inserting the dental implant into the jawbone. The final restoration is applied once the treated area has healed. For the long-term care and maintenance of dental implants, good oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups are essential.
1. Assessment And Treatment Planning
Your dentist assesses your health and oral condition.
Your dentist examines X-rays and models to determine the best treatment for you.
2. The Dental Implant Placement And Healing
Dental implant is inserted under local anesthesia.
Dental implant is left to heal for 3-12weeks.
Do bear in mind that healing time depends on the kind of dental implant, your bone, health, and your physical condition.
Your dentist can fabricate a temporary crown for use during this time.
3. Final Restoration
Once the treated area has healed, your dentist applies the final restoration.
This procedure is painless and requires no anesthesia.
4. Post –Implant Care And Check-up
Your new dental implant is the next best thing to natural teeth. Just as with your natural teeth, you have to take very good care of it:
Brush your teeth carefully after every meal and before bedtime.
Use a soft toothbrush that you replace regularly
Visit your dentist for regular cleanings.
Ask your dentist about post-treatment check-ups to avoid infections and ensure the lasting success of your dental implants.
