Dental Implants is a surgical medical component (almost all today implants are root-form osseointegrated implants) that interfaces with the jaw-bone (or skull) to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, denture, facial prosthesis or to act as an orthodontic anchor for braces. To put in simple words, dental implant is titanium screw (titanium post) which placed into the jawbone to replace missing roots and support artificial tooth or teeth replacement.

Tooth loss

Tooth loss is undesirable and can happen as result of accident, injury or disease, such as mouth trauma, tooth injury, tooth decay, gum disease and old ages. A missing tooth brings discomfort in eating, chewing, and may affect or change someone speech, digestion and how they look. Tooth loss also has effect on jaw bone (missing a tooth can cause significant loss of bone tissue that once held the tooth below the gum line), as bone continues to lose width and height, the gum tissues gradually decrease. Today studies shows tooth loss indirectly cause TMD (TMJ) , jaw joint pain due to a bad bite situation and digestion dysfunction. Tooth loss effect facial Appearance, and can cause psychological problem.

They simulate real teeth in appearance, strength, feel and life.

Dental Implants Surgery procedure

The first stage consists of preparation into the bone using either hand osteotomes or precision drills for placement of an implant; follow by Putting a dental implant (anchor) into your jawbone underneath the gum tissue. (where gum and tissue grows around implant).

Takeing x-rays of your head, jaw, teeth and examination of your mouth by dentist or specialist and finding if you need a dental implant surgery.

Stitching back the gum tissue into place. while the gum tissue heals the implant bond with the bone and attach to the gum. healing and bonding can take several months and differ from case to case.

Once the tissue is healed, the second stage of surgery can start. At the end of this healing period, the implant needs to be surgically exposed by removing some of the overlying gum to attach an abutment to the implant. An abutment is some form of post that penetrates through the gum into the mouth; which connects the replacement tooth to the implant.

the final restorative stage is placing the prosthetic tooth or teeth. An artificial replacement tooth is made and attach to the abutment. Sometimes it may take several appointments to fit the replacement tooth properly to the abutment.

for replacing several teeth or even all of your teeth, a fixed bridge is anchored to your dental implants. A bridge is a fixed dental restoration for a missing tooth or teeth by joining an artificial tooth permanently to adjacent teeth or dental implants. By using implants the bridge will held firmly in place on each side of the missing tooth or teeth.

Research has shown that it is often possible to place a suitable abutment and implant at the same time. There are certain limitations but it can help the dentist to expose the implant without second surgery. However, the implant still requires enough healing time for the bone to osseointegrate.
