“The smile is the best curve”. That’s true in all senses. Some of us are not so lucky to have a perfect smile. Some of us born with gaps between teeth. We may lose teeth due to an accident. Sometimes, age is responsible for teeth loss. As we grow old, the risk of tooth loss increases. Bacterial infection may cause tooth decay. In this type cases, dental implantation is very effective.

 

What are Dental Implants?

 

Dental implants are artificial dental devices that are surgically inserted into the jawbones. The artificial device acts as a root for a tooth. Metal posts or frames are implanted in several steps to replace your damaged teeth or to fill gaps between teeth.

Procedure: Here are the steps of dental implantation for a single tooth.

Dental implantation can be done with local anaesthesia. Then the gum tissue is cut and flapped back. Underlying bone is exposed and drilled for the implant. The anchor is positioned into the hole. An anchor is a metal device inserted into the tissue of jawbone. Implants placed in jaw takes a few months to heal.

A healing cup is placed to heal the tissue. After a few weeks, the healing cap is removed and the abutment is uncovered. Abundant is a metal device attached to the anchor. It connects crown.

After that, the crown is placed to the abutment. Crown is the replacement for your tooth.

Care after implantation: Aftercare is very essential. After implantation, you may face pain and discomfort.  In this case, take soft foods and follow your doctor’s instructions. Proper medication would improve the situation.

Afterwards, proper cleaning should be done. Brush your teeth properly. You can also use an antimicrobial mouthwash to reduce the risk of infection.
