What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is an artificial root made of titanium. This metal is biocompatible, that is, unlike other metals, it is not rejected by the body. It is also very resistant and biologically inert. The implant is inserted into the jaw to replace the root of a natural tooth. An artificial replacement tooth (crown) is then attached to the implant, which serves as a pillar to hold the tooth in place. In some cases, a dental implant can support several artificial teeth. These are called bridges or prosthesis on implants.
What are the benefits in placing dental implants?
Compared to other types of prostheses (dentures, pivot crowns or bridges), the prosthesis on a dental implant is more stable and more durable over time. It does not have to be remove to be cleaned and has no adhesion problems like dentures. The prosthesis on dental implant is also very comfortable and has a natural appearance. Because it replaces only one tooth, its installation requires no alteration of the neighboring teeth, unlike the bridge.
What are the steps to follow when implanting an implant?
As a first step, the dentist will carefully examine your teeth and gums. Using a panoramic x-ray and / or scanners, he will study the structure and shape of your jaw and the location of the nerves and sinuses. After this analysis, he will make a diagnosis and submit a treatment plan. He then proceeds to implant the implant. After 4 to 6 months, the time of osseointegration (integration of the implant with the bone), the dentist will place a pillar of healing. The artificial tooth (crown) will be attached to the abutment after about 2 weeks of healing.
How to maintain dental implants?
In addition to a specific daily cleaning (brushing with a brush with soft bristles, passage of inter-dental brushes …) professional cleaning and visits 2-3 times a year at the dentist or hygienist are necessary.
Who can receive a dental implant?
If you are healthy, your gums are healthy and the bone base of your jaw is sufficient, dental implants can be indicated. In cases where the quality and quantity of bones are not sufficient, a bone graft or a sinus elevation may be necessary. These interventions will help to recreate the right conditions for the installation of your dental implant which will be a success.
