All About Dental Implants

Dental Implants, also known as dental crowns, bridges or root canal treatment are the replacements for missing teeth that have failed to be replaced by one of the natural teeth in the mouth. A dental implant is basically a surgical part that interfaces with your natural bone or gum to support a dental appliance like a crown, denture, bridge, tooth implant or for cosmetic use, an orthodontic bridge. It is made up of a titanium screw shaped rod which is implanted in the gums, along with other materials like silicon and hard plastic elastomer, and saline, or water. The implant holds the tooth root in place. Dental Implants offer a permanent solution for all patients suffering from one or more tooth loss issues.Have a look at Austin dental implants for more info on this.

Once the implantation process is completed, the patient would not require any oral treatment other than maintenance and normal checksups. If the process fails to integrate properly, it may lead to infection and swelling of the surrounding tissues. Any abnormal growth of tissues on the exposed part of your gums should be promptly reported to the dentist. As per usual, dental implants are prone to infections and failure, and they may not fuse sufficiently with the bone either during the processing stage or after they are installed. If the dental implants fail to integrate properly, the dentist may suggest for surgical replacement of one or more teeth.

Once the implants have been replaced, they will be covered by natural teeth that have grown on top of them. Dental Implants may cause some degree of sensitivity to the person who has been implanted, but after regular checkups, most of them do not cause any trouble. However if you are placed under the general anesthesia for the insertion of the implants, you may experience some pain. This will subside after a while. In a few cases, the implants may start to fuse with the bones of your jaw.
