What Is a Dental Implant? 

A dental implant is a sophisticated dental device designed to replace missing teeth and mimic the structure of a natural tooth. It comprises three main components: the implant post, abutment, and crown or prosthesis. 

The implant post is surgically inserted into the jawbone, providing a strong anchor for the abutment and crown. 

How Does Dental Implant Placement Work? 

Initial Consultation 

  • Assessment: Our dentist evaluates your oral health, which includes examining your teeth, gums, and jawbone to determine if you’re a good candidate for dental implants. The assessment might also involve X-rays or CT scans to assess bone density and determine the optimal placement for the implants. 
  • Treatment Plan: A personalized treatment plan is created based on the assessment, considering factors such as the number of teeth needing replacement and the condition of your jawbone. 

Implant Placement 

  • Surgical Procedure: Under local anesthesia (and sometimes sedation), our dentist makes an incision in your gum to expose the bone. Then, holes are drilled into the bone where the dental implant metal post will be placed. 
  • Healing and Osseointegration: After the post is placed, osseointegration begins. Over the course of several months, the jawbone grows into and unites with the surface of the dental implant. This process creates a sturdy base for the new artificial tooth. 

Abutment Placement 

 Once osseointegration is complete, you might need additional surgery to place the abutment, the piece where the crown will eventually attach. This minor procedure is typically done with local anesthesia and involves reopening your gum to expose the dental implant. 

The abutment is attached to the dental implant, and the gum tissue is then closed around, but not over, the abutment. 

Choosing and Fitting the Artificial Tooth 

  • Impressions: Once your gums heal, more impressions of your mouth and remaining teeth are made. The results are used to make the crown — your realistic-looking artificial tooth. 
  • Placement: The crown can be removable or fixed. A removable crown snaps on and off the abutment for cleaning and repair, while a fixed crown is permanently screwed or cemented onto the abutment. 

Aftercare and Follow-Up 

Like natural teeth, implants require regular dental check-ups and good oral hygiene. You'll have follow-up visits to check the implant, abutment, and crown for proper function and fit, as well as to ensure your oral health is maintained.
