Many people ask “What are dental implants?”
Simply, dental implants are a permanent solution to replacing missing teeth or loose teeth that are about to come out.
How Dental Implants Work
The dental implant has two parts. First, the implant itself that is inserted into the bone duplicates the natural root of a tooth, but it is artificial. The implant can be treated with substances that enhance positive interaction between the bone and the implant surface.
Secondly, once the implant has been secured the prosthesis (a crown) will be attached to the implant forming a strong and permanent tooth. The prosthesis will be made to the perfect size and shape for your mouth and to match any surrounding teeth.
In addition to dental implants being a permanent solution to tooth loss, the greatest benefit is that replacement of missing teeth with dental implants means avoiding cutting adjacent teeth for fixed bridge work.
Best Timing for Dental Implant Placement
Usually, the best time for having a dental implant is as soon as possible after tooth loss. You should not wait longer than six months after losing a tooth, or series of teeth. Of course, dental implants can be placed any time after tooth loss considering other factors that determine resulting bone loss. The longer you wait the more potential for bone loss and the more complex the dental implant procedure. Acting swiftly will definitely increase the odds of success with your dental implant procedure.
