Dental implants or Tooth implants are nothing but artificial tooth roots that is fixed to our jaw to hold the replacement tooth. Earlier dentures and bridges were the only option available to the people suffering from teeth loss. But dental implant treatments are now available with the advent of science. The dental surgeon makes a proper evaluation of the mouth before advising the type of tooth implant to be done. Implant dentistry follows two procedures. 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 frame works protruding into the jaws. The implants are made of titanium and once they get hold of the gums, the actual prosthesis tooth is fixed to it using screws and gel. The time frame for the entire process will be around five to six months and in some cases this can be close to a year depending on the severity. This time frame is needed so that the implant can get accustomed to the jaws and avoid any future complications. Advancement in this field has made this procedure relatively painless and postoperative procedures are to be followed religiously for the natural healing process to set in. Regular visits to the dentists followed by proper care of the teeth should be takenWith proper care implants can have a very long expectancy.
