These implants are barely noticeable once secured into the jawbone. Dental implants are utilized to secure crowns, which supplant missing teeth; additionally, they also secure bridges and/or dentures. Dental tooth implants are produced using titanium, a safe metal used as a part of numerous dental procedures. Our body is very compatible with this metal, this results in a high success rate for implanted surgical devices if other maintenance factors are met. When a tooth implant is put into the jawbone, it is fused in; this is the most natural that you can get without placing a natural tooth in the mouth. Another advantage is that the tooth implant is stable enough to be placed on its own without affecting any neighbouring teeth. The dentist starts out by placing the implant into the empty bone socket, usually where the natural tooth was extracted and a crown is placed on the metal fixture. The healing process for this is approximately 12 weeks, depending on the patient. There is very little discomfort for the patient when the procedure is completed, local anesthesia is used on the patient during the procedure and they can take over the counter medications such as Advil or Tylenol to help with the pain afterwards.
