What is a Dental Implant?
A Dental implant is typically a small screw shaped attachment usually made from titanium. It is inserted within the jawbone to take the place of a missing tooth root. Once osseointegration (when the bone attaches firmly to the implant) has occurred, a replacement tooth can be secured to the top of the implant. This new tooth can look, feel and perform just like a natural tooth. It is possible to use multiple implants to support a denture or bridge. Dental implants in Coventry are available from dental perfection.
What are the benefits of implants?
- Implant secured or stabilised replacement teeth are more comfortable than conventional dentures because there is no slipping or movement. This eliminates some of the key worries of dentures and improves self confidence.
- Dental implants are the alternative to bridgework for permanently replacing missing teeth, eliminating the need to grind down healthy teeth.
- When teeth are missing the surrounding bone begins to shrink. Dental implants can help maintain the shape and structure of the jaw bone.
What is involved in the implant process?
The implant process normally involves several steps that take place over a period of time from three to nine months. Your Coventry dentist will be able to advise you on the expected treatment timescales. Although there are various implant treatment methods a typical process often includes:
- Assessment planning
- Implant placement
- Integration period
- The restorative phase
