Things You Must Know About Dental Implants


Posted on 9/2/2022 by Dr Hedgecock
Dental Implant graphicTo be eligible for implant placement surgery, you must have a robust immune system and healthy teeth, gums, and jaw tissue. Your dentist will create an incision along the gum during dental surgery, and then they will inject a titanium plate into the jawbone.

In addition, obtaining a tooth implant has recently been a popular alternative for dental surgery. Many people prefer receiving implants over other methods of replacing missing teeth, such as dentures or bridgework. Due to their high success rate, dentists often suggest them to patients over the other available choices, which contributes to their rising popularity. If you are missing a tooth, this might indicate that getting a dental implant would be your best alternative.

Dental Implants Look Like Natural Teeth


Dental implants are intended to behave and seem in the same way as regular, natural teeth. The natural tooth root is replaced with a titanium post that provides support and strength. This post is located at the bottom of the tooth. However, after the implant has been taken and the surgical site has healed, there is no longer any evidence of the metal being there.

The dental prosthesis component visible when the patient smiles are the dental crown, bridge, or denture. This component of the tooth implant is often referred to by its alternative name, the prosthesis. The prosthesis will be fashioned using a model of your mouth as a guide, and it will be customized to blend in flawlessly with the rest of your teeth.
