For people seeking permanent tooth replacement, dental implants provide the perfect solution.
What are dental implants?
Implants are false teeth, usually porcelain, which fit onto a screw-like fixture that is surgically implanted in the bone of the jaw. They look completely natural and are indistinguishable from natural teeth.
Implant surgery can be used to replace a single tooth or a number of adjacent teeth. If a number of teeth are being replaced, not all of the teeth will need their own ‘screw root’. The dentist will insert the necessary number of implants and then make bridges between implanted teeth or between implanted and natural teeth.
What happens during implant surgery?
Bone is exposed in the jaw where the tooth is missing. Then a hole is drilled and the implant is inserted into the bone. This is usually carried out under local anaesthetic, but sometimes sedation or a general anaesthetic is necessary.
The gum is then stitched over the implant and left to heal for several months. This allows the bone to grow around the implant and make it secure.
A second procedure is then planned in which replacement teeth are mounted onto the implant. This requires a small cut in the gum above the implant. Once the soft tissues have healed, the replacement teeth may be fixed permanently.
