Dental implants as the name suggests are nothing but artificial tooth roots that is fixed to our jaw to hold the replacement tooth when the earlier tooth becomes damaged or falls off. Some time back only dentures and bridges were the common form of treatment for a teeth loss. But dental implant treatments are now available, and they have been perfected by the dentists' as well. Advanced Surgery in Implantology involves the dentists making a proper evaluation of the mouth before advising the type of tooth implant to be done. Implant dentistry is of two kinds. The endosteal procedure is followed where the implant is placed into the jawbone. In the subperiosteal procedure, the implant is placed on top of the jaw with metal frameworks protruding into the jaws. The implants are made of titanium and once implanted they are left to heal to get hold of the gums. Once the healing process takes place, the real prosthesis tooth is fixed to it using screws and gel. The timeframe for the entire process will be around five to six months, and in some extreme cases, this can be close to a year depending on the severity. A good oral hygiene is mandatory once the recovery period starts. Proper brushing and flossing has to be done followed by regular visits to the dentists for dental checkups. The dental implants rarely do come off and have a very long life expectancy if properly taken care of.
