How Dental Implants Work?
Mostly, dental implants are manufactured using Titanium and similar alloys. These materials have the unique capability of promoting bone formation around the implant surface. The implant gradually becomes completely embedded within the jaw bone. This process is called Osseo-integration, and it is the primary reason behind the durability and retention of dental implants.
How are Dental Implants Placed?
Placement of dental implants is performed in two or three steps. We also provide same day dental implants for patients as well. One of our expert dentists will first examine your teeth and take a long, thorough look at your medical and dental records. Next, the soft tissue on top of the bone where the implant will be inserted will be anesthetized. The soft tissue will be cut and a flap will be raised. A hole will be drilled into the jaw bone, and the implant will be carefully placed into position.
How is the Implant Loaded?
If you have delayed implant loading planned, then a healing cap will be placed over the implant and the flap is stitched. Alternatively, if you have decided to get a same day implant, a suitable prosthesis (like permanent dentures, crown or a bridge) is secured to the implant right after its placement. In case of delayed implant loading, placement of a prosthesis will be delayed until the healing time has passed.
