Dental implants are teeth replacement devices that are highly realistic. Many patients choose them because they resemble regular teeth more than dentures and other replacement methods do. Dental implants can be better for a consumer than other types of replacement devices because they can last a lifetime. Dentures only have a seven to 10 year expected life span. Implants are unique because they fuse to the bone and become a permanent part of the tooth structure. The following contains some information about the processes and procedures that revolve around cosmetic dental implant installation:
The First Step
The first step in the installation process involves surgery on the tooth. The dentist will numb the patient and then insert a screw into his or her jawbone. Next, the dentist will screw the abutment into the screw, and the patient will go home and heal after that appointment. The healing period can take three to nine months to process. The specialist will put a covering over the surgical area so that it will not get infected or cause pain and discomfort. The implant placement will occur when the person heals from the initial surgical procedure.
The Second Step
The second step in the process is the placement of the dental implant. The dental implant will have to be placed firmly onto the jawbone. Once that occurs, the dentist will then place a crown on the area. The specialist will use a crown that matches or almost matches the color of the patient’s tooth. The patient will have to go home and heal after the procedure is done. The healing time depends on the individual. The person may feel better in a few weeks or a few days. The patient will want to stay alert and watch out for problems and complications such as infection.
The End Result
Dental implants have a wide variety of positive effects. The main benefit that dental implants provide to people is an increased self-esteem. The smiling dental implant patient will have more confidence with peers, customers and potential mates. Another benefit that a dental implant gives a person is a stable smile. The one problem that dentures have the most is that they can be unstable. Some of them can easily come out of the mouth, whereas implants are embedded into the bone.
