Dental implants offer a way to replace extracted teeth without cutting down adjacent teeth. If you’re looking to get a dental implant, the experienced dentists at Camira Dental can make a consultation. Call us today to discuss your implant options.
How dental implants work
Dental implants are a great way to replace a single, extracted tooth without affecting the surrounding teeth. Getting dental implants is generally a 3-step process, ensuring the implant will stand the test of time.
The process of getting dental implants
1. Placement of the titanium abutment
First, a titanium abutment is screwed in, then left to bond with the bone and heal.
2. Healing period
A healing period of about 3 months ensures the implant is strong and completely integrated into the jawbone.
3. Placement of the crown
After a suitable healing period, a crown is glued or screwed onto the implant abutment.
Dental implants have many advantages. They’re sturdy, look great and can last a very long time. The disadvantage is that there is a long period of 3-6 months between extracting the tooth and the final fitting of the crown. However, a temporary denture can be used for patients who are concerned about the aesthetics.
At Camira Dental, we do single implants but refer the surgical placement of the abutment to a specialist surgeon. This way, we ensure our patients receive the best possible results.
