dental implant

Mouthpeace also offers reliable, permanent dental implants. A dental implant is a type of replacement for a missing tooth. The tooth might be replaced for function, health, and cosmetics. Other, similar options exist, such as dentures and dental bridges. The best option for each patient depends on several factors, including the health of the patient, where the tooth is missing from, and the strength of the jawbone, as in whether the jawbone’s structure is strong enough to handle an implant. Compared to the others, dental implants cause fewer changes in your lifestyle, because they are just like having another natural tooth.

The dental implant is screwed into the jawbone, where its titanium structure fuses with the bone. This way, it has the natural look and feel of a normal tooth. A bone graft is placed on the site of the tooth that needs to be replaced, to make the jaw stronger for the implant. Once the area is healed, the implant is drilled in, with a “healing cap” placed over it. Then, the dental implant is tested. If it holds, a prosthetic component is added to the implant, and the replacement tooth is secured inside.

The entire procedure, including spans of time for healing, takes between three and six months. Some bruising and swelling will likely occur afterwards, but should go away quickly, and the pain can be treated with any painkiller.

It is important that the patient follow-up regularly following the implant procedures. Peri-implantitis, an inflammation of the gum and bone surrounding the implant, is one possible complication of the surgery. If left untreated, the implant could be lost. It is also important to take care of the implant by brushing and flossing it as well. Continued dental visits will ensure that the implant serves its role for a lifetime.
