Dental Implants: The whats and whys!

Dental implants are a new age tooth replacement option that mimics the anatomy and functionality of a missing natural tooth as closely as possible. Implants are titanium screws placed in your jawbone, serving the purpose of the roots of your natural teeth.

Let us first understand the structure of a natural tooth. A natural tooth has two anatomical parts: the crown and the roots. The roots are embedded in the jawbone below the gumline anchoring the tooth in the mouth. The crown is the visible part of the tooth in the mouth above the gumline. The neck connects the roots to the crown at the gumline.
Dental implants are the closest thing to real teeth: dental implant comprise three parts – the ‘titanium implant’ simulating the roots of a natural tooth, anchoring the artificial tooth into the jawbone; the ‘crown’, commonly referred to as ‘cap’, simulating the crown of the natural tooth; and the abutment connecting the crown to the implant. Thus, a dental implant successfully replaces a missing tooth by taking support from the jawbone without disturbing the adjacent natural teeth. Dental implants offer unmatched comfort, stability, and aesthetics, imitating the appearance, feel, and functionality of your original teeth so you can eat, speak, and smile confidently.

Is a dental implant procedure too painful?
The implant surgery is generally done under local anaesthesia to eliminate any painful experience during the procedure. Minimal discomfort is expected for 2-3 days after the procedure which is counteracted by prescribed over-the-counter drugs.
How Long The Procedure Takes?
A single implant placement generally takes 45 mins to 1 hour. Factors that determine the timespan for the dental implant surgery is the number of teeth being replaced, oral conditions, and the treatment plan.
