Dental Implant

The dental implant is the preferred option when it comes to replacing lost teeth, being minimally invasive. It is inserted into the jawbone through a surgical procedure, and is then capped with a crown.

The advantages of dental implants include:

  • Natural Appearance: Dental implants are designed to resemble natural teeth, ensuring they seamlessly fit within the oral cavity and look just like real teeth.
  • Functionality: Dental implants function just like natural teeth, allowing patients to chew and speak without discomfort or pain.
  • Durability: Dental implants are built to last a long time, potentially a patient's entire lifetime, provided they are properly maintained with appropriate oral hygiene.
  • Comfort: Dental implants are comfortable and feel just like natural teeth.
  • Bone Stimulation: The placement of a dental implant helps stimulate the surrounding bone, which can prevent bone loss and bone resorption that occurs when a natural tooth is missing.
  • Enhanced Aesthetics: Dental implants can improve the aesthetics of one's smile and can enhance confidence and self-esteem.

In general, dental implants are viewed as an effective and long-lasting solution for replacing missing teeth. However, not everyone is an ideal candidate for this procedure as they must have sufficient bone structure to support the dental implant.

Moreover, patients must maintain rigorous oral hygiene to preserve the health of the implant and the surrounding natural teeth.

The procedure is minor and is performed under local anesthesia. Sometimes, for patients who are more sensitive or simply do not wish to recall anything from the procedure, it can be done with intravenous sedation, under the careful supervision of the anesthesiologist.
