What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are synthetic structures placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. They are anchored to the jawbone or metal framework on the bone and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. Implants are so well-designed that they mimic the look and feel of natural teeth. Implants are usually made of a synthetic yet biocompatible material like metal or ceramic. Surgery is necessary to prepare the area for an implant and place the implant in the mouth.
Following the procedure, a period of time is required for the implant to take hold and for bone tissue to build up and anchor the device. In some cases, metal posts are inserted into the implant during a follow-up procedure to connect the tooth. Because implants require surgery, patients are administered anesthesia and, if necessary, antibiotics to stave off infection following the procedure.
Are Dental Implants Right For You?
Not everyone is a candidate for dental implants, however. For a successful implant to take hold, a candidate must have proper bone density and possess a strong immune system. In all cases, dental implants require strict oral hygiene. Like any restoration, implants require diligent dental care and proper attention to ensure they last a long time.
