Learning More About Dental Implants

Dental Implants

Tooth loss has always been one of the most prevalent issues affecting humans. Even in the U.S., with an advanced of dental care, as we have, millions of Americans still deal with it. The cause is usually from tooth decay, periodontal disease or some form of injury. Up until very recently, the only known solutions were bridges or dentures. However, there is a new option on the market. In today’s blog post we will be learning more about dental implants and how they have revolutionized the way we can combat tooth loss. They really showcase the strides we have made in the world of dentistry and the results are stunning. Dental implants can truly change your life for the better!

What Are Dental Implants?

They are essentially artificial tooth roots which are inserted into your jaw and act as a natural nest for new man-made teeth. These can be temporary and replaceable or made permanent. This is done by using a small titanium post and pressing it into the bone. Over the healing process, the jawbone will naturally form around the post. This will secure it into your jaw and ensure that the synthetic root is capable of holding teeth. After the jaw has formed around the titanium, then another piece known as the abutment is added to connect the post with the new tooth. After taking molds of your original teeth to ensure the exact size and shape, the dentist will create a crown. A crown is what we call the replacement tooth. After the proper size is made, the dentist will color it to the shade of your teeth. Once it is fastened into the abutment and lodged into the titanium post, the tooth will be strong enough and secure enough to act exactly as your natural teeth will.

Will The Procedure Hurt? What About After?

If you are going to get a dental implant, we will provide you with local anesthesia to numb the area of focus. This will allow us to do a bulk of the work without you even feeling it. In fact, there have been many reports stating that the experienced less pain from dental implants than real tooth extractions. Of course, when the anesthesia wears off after the procedure you may feel soreness. This is a natural side effect as there were surgical measures down to your jaw and the bone is still healing from the process. Usually, an over the counter pain medication will alleviate almost all of the pain it could cause you. After that, you’d need only rest and wait until the healing has completed. From there, you should feel no pain.
