slide 1: Procedure and Benefits of Dental Implants People around the world have now recognized the significance of Dental care and have started taking preventing measures to maintain their oral health. People lose their teeth due to various reasons like tooth decay and gum diseases. Decades ago dentures and bridges were the only options available to treat patients suffering from missing or broken tooth. Now Dental implants make a great option for tooth replacement. An implant can help replace one or missing tooth with artificial tooth the implant comprises of a titanium screw which is directly fixed to the jaw bone just like the root of a natural tooth. It serves as a strong foundation on which the removable artificial tooth will be placed. Procedure of Dental implants First step would involve a consultation with your dentist which will involve X-ray of your mouth and then the impression of your teeth. After which your dentist will recommend a plan and procedure for your dental implant treatment. On the day of treatment you will be given local anesthesia so that you don’t feel the pain on your gums during the surgery. If there is no sufficient bone in your jaw to support the implants you may need bone grafting. Once your jaw bone is healed your dentist will screw the implants into your jaw. Again this requires another healing phase. Once the implants are well fused with your jaw bone your dentist will place a healing collar on the head of the crown. This helps slide 2: the gums to heal.
