A Note on Dental Implants

logo

Dental Implants are pieces of metal which are surgically implanted into the jaw bone to replace teeth that are missing. Dental Implants are made up of a hard outer shell which covers a soft core which is typically composed of a ceramic or silicon alloy. The hard outer shell of an implant helps to protect the softer core from infection and corrosion. A tooth implant can be used to replace a single tooth or multiple teeth in the case of oral surgery.Do you want to learn more? Visit Dental Implants .

Dental Implants have revolutionized the way in which tooth restoration is carried out, by enabling people to regain complete chewing function, use of all facial teeth for chewing, wear and tear resistance, comfort and protection against grinding. A dental implant procedure is carried out under general anesthesia and can be completed within a few hours. However, a patient may experience some discomfort and swelling around the implant site for a day or two following the procedure.

For patients who require only one tooth or a single tooth implant, then a dental implants procedure can be performed as one single procedure. For example, where one tooth has to be replaced due to the occurrence of a broken root, the whole denture or appliance can be replaced at one go. Similarly, where one tooth needs to be replaced because of extensive missing teeth, a complete set of dentures or appliance can be replaced in one procedure. Where more than one tooth or teeth need to be replaced, then a multiple procedure known as a ‘dry socket’ implant procedure can be done.
