Dental implants

Dental implants

General


It is important to replace the void left by tooth loss for aesthetic purposes (smile) or functional (chewing). This replacement can be done by different methods. Implant placement is.

A dental implant is similar to an artificial root, is in the form of a titanium screw placed in the jawbone. It serves as a support for a crown, a bridge, a denture ...

 


Intervention


The placement of dental implant is a quick and effective technique but requiring bone volume underlying enough for a good anchoring of the screw. An appeal to a bone graft may be necessary. It is also important that neighboring teeth and gums are healthy.

A dental implant can be put in place, either immediately after tooth extraction or after healing of the bone and the gum.

The surgery is usually done under local anesthesia.

The final prosthesis is performed after the solidification of the bone around the implant.


Postoperative periods


The main drawbacks after installation of dental implant can be a pain, localized edema, hematoma.

After osseointegration of the dental implant (outlet of the implant in the bone), ie a few months later, a healing abutment is placed on the dental implant. It allows the creation of a gum collar.

The establishment of the artificial crown (prosthesis) is the last step. It is performed by the dentist.


Our opinion


Dental losses accelerate facial aging. It is essential to replace the void left not to see appear early the stigma of an aged face.
