An implant is a small titanium post that is surgically positioned into the jawbone to replace a missing tooth root.

What Are Implants?

A dental implant is an option to replace a missing tooth. In this procedure, a small titanium shaft is surgically implanted into the bone and allowed to set. The bone grows around it forming a tight connection, which additionally slows or stops the bone loss that occurs when the root of a natural tooth is missing. Once the implant is firmly set in the mouth, the dentist then works to attach the replacement tooth onto the top of the shaft. This permanent solution has the advantages over bridge work that it does not stress the surrounding teeth for support, and, should the tooth wear out, another can simply be replaced on the shaft.

How do we restore Implant?

A Dental Implant procedure is a multi-stage process that replaces tooth roots with metal, screw-like posts and replaces damaged or missing teeth with artificial teeth that look and function much like real ones. Here’s a breakdown of the steps involved:

Stage 1: Consultation and Planning

Consultation: You’ll consult with your dentist or oral surgeon to discuss your dental history, overall health, and treatment goals.
X-rays and CT scans: These imaging tests will help your dentist assess your jawbone density and the location of your nerves and blood vessels.
Treatment plan: Your dentist will develop a customized treatment plan based on your individual needs. This plan will outline the number and types of implants needed, the surgical procedure, and the estimated cost and timeline.

Stage 2: Surgery

Anesthesia: You will be given anesthesia to keep you comfortable during the surgery. This may be local anesthesia, IV sedation, or general anesthesia.
Implant placement: The surgeon will make an incision in your gum and prepare the jawbone for the implant. The implant is then surgically inserted into the jawbone.
Sutures: The incision will be closed with sutures.

Stage 3: Healing and Osseointegration

It will take several months for the implant to fuse with your jawbone in a process called osseointegration. During this time, you will wear a temporary restoration, such as a denture or flipper, to protect the implant site and maintain your appearance.

Stage 4: Abutment Placement

Once the implant has healed, your dentist will place a small connector piece called an abutment on top of the implant. The abutment will connect the implant to the artificial tooth.

Stage 5: Artificial Tooth Placement

Your dentist will create a custom-made artificial tooth, such as a crown, bridge, or denture, that fits over the abutment. The artificial tooth will be made to look and function like your natural teeth.
