INGLEBURN'S TRUSTED DENTISTS FOR NATURAL-LOOKING DENTAL IMPLANTS
Through surgical placement of a titanium root into the underlying jawbone, the functionality and security of a dental implant can be almost as fundamental in nature as
your original teeth.
What is a dental implant?
The surgery procedure
Once this process has been allowed to complete, usually over several months, the next stage of the process is undertaken. This involves the reopening of the healed gum tissue, around the implant, and the insertion of an abutment onto the root and acts as a post for the placement of the artificial tooth or crown.
Once this stage has been completed and suitable time allowed for the gum to re-heal, the crown is then positioned.
The benefits of dental implants
While these immediate benefits are felt, the overall support for your surrounding teeth is also achieved, with a decreased likelihood of the other teeth moving in the absence of additional space. The muscular structure of your jaw and overall face is once more supported, reducing the incidence of facial sagging and deterioration.
Dental implants are used to support other treatment appliances including dentures, which can be fixed and secured, using the root structure of the dental implant and greatly improve oral proficiency.
