How Do Dental Implants Work?
A dental implant is surgically placed in your jawbone by a qualified dental surgeon. Please check our experienced oral surgeon DDS Ph.D. Özkan Özkaynak's cv.
When the procedure is done, there’s a healing period to allow the bone to grow around the implant. This ensures that the dental implant bonds with your jawbone tissue.
The patient should rest for at least 3 months for the second step of dental crowns. If the patient had bone grafting or sinus lifting patient should rest for at least 6 months for the second visit.
When the implant is bonded properly, a dentist places an abutment on top of it. Think of this as the interior of your teeth. The abutment supports the dental crown, which is an artificial product that mimics the enamel in your teeth. Now, you have a complete artificial tooth to replace a missing one.
A dental implant is fundamental support that allows the artificial tooth to look and function just like a real tooth. You won’t feel a dental implant once it’s in your mouth, much like how you don’t feel the root of your teeth.
Patients should note that getting a dental implant requires several procedures. You may have to consult with a dentist several times first. The dentist would perform several tests and take x-rays to determine whether your jaw structure is suited for dental implants.
If the patient doesn't have any teeth on one jaw, the patient doesn't need to wait for dental crowns for 3 months.
