Removable dentures are that, removable. Dental implants remove the need of messy glues to keep them in place, as well as the awkward bother of removing dentures. Generally, dental implants possess a success rate of up to 98% but although achievement rates of dental implants change, dependant upon where in the jaw the implants are set. With appropriate attention and care implants can last a long time. The Initial step in the dental implant procedure is the development of a personalized treatment plan by Dr Amy. Your particular needs are addressed by the plan and it is prepared by Dr Amy and her professional team who’re especially trained and experienced in restorative dentistry and oral surgery.
Dr Amy’s unified care approach results in the implant choice that is best suited for you. A tooth root implant, which will be a little post made from titanium, is set in the bone socket of the tooth that was lost. As the jawbone heals, it grows around the metal post that is implanted, anchoring it safely in the jaw. The process of healing may take from 6 to 12 weeks. After the implant has bonded to the jawbone, a little connector post, called an abutment, is connected to the post to safely hold the new tooth. To make a new tooth Dr Amy will make impressions of your tooth, and create a model of the bite.
The new tooth is situated on this model. A replacement tooth, called the crown, is subsequently attached to the abutment. Rather than more than one crowns that are individual, some patients can have fasteners put on the implant that support and keep a denture that is removable. Dr Amy pays meticulous attention to detail and will match the color of the new tooth to your natural teeth. The implant is fixed inside the jawbone, the replacement teeth look, feel and function exactly like your very own natural teeth.
