Unlike dentures, dental implants are placed in the jawbone during an operation.
The bone grows around the implant. This attachment helps hold the implant in place, making it sturdy.
To fill in the gap caused by the missing tooth, an artificial crown is attached to the metal.
The crown is positioned to look like the old tooth.
Dental implants are also used to hold dental bridges and dentures in place.
When does one need a dental implant?
If you have one or more missing teeth, you might consider dental implants for replacing them. But dental implants are not for everyone. Listed below are the qualifications to receive dental implants:
If you have a fully grown, healthy jawbone
If you don’t have gum diseases like abscesses, gingivitis, or periodontitis
If you don’t have conditions that affect bone healing like Osteogenesis imperfecta
Why are dental implants required?
Missing teeth cause discomfort in speaking and eating. If the gap is left unfilled, you might end up with misaligned teeth and develop a ‘bad bite’. We don’t want that to happen. Missing teeth can also cause bone loss in the jaw, harming your appearance.

What are the procedures during dental implantation?
Before anything else, an initial consultation with your dentist is conducted. It is followed by X-rays and a discussion of your recommended treatment plan. The dentist will present the suggested procedures and the corresponding costs.
The start of the procedure is the instalment of the implants through surgery. A metal screw-like implant is placed in the drilled part of the bone. You will wait for 4-6 months for the implants to be fully integrated into your bone.
Your dentist will take impressions and create a model as the basis of a new crown or bridge. The new crown or bridge is then attached to the exposed implant to make it look, feel, and function just like natural tooth/teeth.
