Dental Implant Placement and Restoration Beverly Hills
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are synthetic substitutes for a lost tooth and tooth root. These replacements are fastened to a patient’s jawbone in a similar manner as a natural tooth and are secured using a special post which is customarily constructed from titanium or occasionally a titanium alloy. The dental implants are created to look and act like a normal tooth including withstanding the pressure a tooth normally experiences. Since dental implants are fused to the jaw bone, they not only assist to replace a lost tooth but also stabilize the jaw and help it, and the soft tissues, to maintain their shape and strength.
How are Implants Installed?
The implant procedure normally entails three visits. Throughout the initial visit the patient will have the titanium post installed into his or her jawbone. The post is then left to merge with the bone for a period of few weeks. The following visit will see to making the actual artificial tooth head. During this visit, an impression of the teeth and the gap will be made in order to craft a unique replacement made especially for that person. During the last visit the artificial tooth in connected to the post with an abutment and shaped to match the neighboring teeth.
Will These Dental Implants Be Safe?
Implants have been employed by dentists for tooth replacement procedures for over 30 years. The stability of these implants is an aspect of the titanium post. Titanium is renowned as an exceptionally biocompatible metal, meaning that it securely fuses with the bone in a process called osseointegration and is fully accepted by the body. By providing this strong foundation, dental implants are the most stable replacement for teeth. Additionally, dental implants are the only tooth restoration treatment which stimulates the bone underneath the area of the missing tooth, helping to support jaw function, soft tissue health, and preventing bone loss.
