A dental implant serves as a replacement for the root of a missing tooth.
Compared to other prosthetic treatments, implants closely mimic the structure of natural teeth. While it may seem like a major procedure, it has become routine and typically only takes a few hours.
The feasibility largely hinges on the health of your jawbones. Special tests will be conducted to assess the remaining bone in the tooth area. If there’s insufficient healthy bone, implants may require the grafting of new bone before placement.
Certainly. Proper aftercare is vital for the longevity of your implant. Following the care instructions provided by your dental team is crucial.
Maintaining hygiene around implanted teeth is as manageable as cleaning natural teeth. Some areas may be harder to reach, necessitating extra care. More frequent hygienist visits might be recommended, and your dental team will offer guidance.
