Dental implants are artificial roots installed in the gum bone through a simple, quick and painless surgery. They are made with biologically compatible material, such as titanium, and their purpose is to replace the roots of lost natural teeth.
Subsequently, a prosthesis is fixed onto the dental implant, which may be the prosthesis protocol, to regain chewing ability and smile. The tooth can be constructed with materials such as porcelain, zirconia, resin or metal-ceramic.
The procedure involves several steps, the initial one being assessment and diagnosis. This is where the dentist analyzes the case and checks the feasibility of placing the implants.
To do this, you can request imaging tests, such as x-rays, which make it possible to identify whether the patient has dental bone loss. If so, you will need to undergo an initial procedure, bone grafting.
The next step is to place the tooth implant, which occurs through a quick and painless surgery, keeping the patient comfortable during the procedure.
The implant dentist makes an incision in the gum to access the bone and places the pin. Then, continue with the site protection and suturing procedures, minimizing the risk of complications.
In most cases, the patient needs to wait for a period of osseointegration of the fixed dental implant. After this period, you will be able to place the prosthesis under implant, having complete oral rehabilitation.
In general, it takes 2 to 4 months for the dental implant to integrate with the bone. During this period of osseointegration, the patient uses a temporary dental prosthesis suitable for their case, which can be fixed or mobile.
Due to scientific advances, it is now possible, in selected cases, to enter the office without teeth and leave at the end of the day with all teeth fixed on dental implants.
This technology, known as IMMEDIATE LOAD, provides great satisfaction to patients due to the quick results. However, immediate loading implants are not recommended for all patients.
After all, is it worth having a dental implant? Yes, this is a dental treatment that pays off because it provides aesthetic and functional benefits. See the main ones below:
The implant restores the patient's chewing and speaking functions. Regarding chewing, it is possible to do it correctly, without compromising the initial stage of digestion. Furthermore, this process is carried out without pain in the jaw or head.
As for speech, the lack of teeth can compromise the pronunciation of certain sounds. By placing an implant and prosthesis, it is possible to restore this function, having greater precision in speech.
When you lose part of your teeth, those that remain begin to move to try to play the role of those that are no longer in the arch. This compromises aesthetics and chewing functions. With the implant and prosthesis, this problem is avoided.
With the implant, the patient can install excellent prosthetics, with a natural look and comfortable use. This helps to rehabilitate the smile, as well as regain self-esteem and quality of life, impacting health as a whole.
The post-operative period of a dental implant is usually simple, it is only recommended that you take special care to avoid the risk of complications. These include taking the rest period recommended by the dentist on the day of surgery, as well as taking the prescribed medication.
It is possible to use ice packs to reduce immediate post-mortem swelling, as well as any discomfort. In the first few days after the procedure, the patient must adopt a liquid or soft diet. Solids should only be ingested after approval by the dentist.
Another recommendation is to clean your mouth as instructed by your dentist, using a toothbrush with soft bristles, always carefully.
Last but not least is attending all dental follow-up appointments. This way, you will have the support of the dentist, ensuring the necessary support during this recovery period.
