We have heard so many different stories of patients complaining: “I accidentally broke a tooth… and what worries me the most is that it is the one in the front of my mouth.”
It could be your case!
Nowadays, technology and dental procedures have been extremely developed and in a single visit to your confidence dentist, you can have that fixed immediately.
An implant by definition is a small titanium screw. It was create with the purpose of replacing a tooth. Titanium is biocompatible, non-toxic and it is not rejected by the human body. It is a metal that can be use not only in dental procedures but also for many other medical uses. In dental implants it can stay in place for up to 30 years. It has the ability to osseointegrate (the implant bond to the bone); patient with titanium implants has be safely examined with MRI.
A dental implant has 3 parts:
Dental implant at actual size
An abutment on top of the implant
The dental implant with a crown.
For a single tooth replacement, the procedure is as follows:
A complete examination that will determine the placement of the implant (including medical history, x-rays, CT scan).
Placing the dental implant, surgical procedure, if it is a front tooth you may walk out with a temporary crown.
Attaching the abutment, once the implant has fully integrated with the bone tissues.
Fitting and re-examination, When the crown is ready, it is simple attached to the abutment. It is necessary for it to be followed by a few follow- up visits to ensure the functionally and esthetics of your treatment.
As a result, a dental implant look, feel and function just like natural teeth and allow you to eat, speak and smile with confidence!
Implant treatments can provide restored function and esthetics for a new outlook on health and an improved quality of life.
