Dental Surgery and Implants

Dental implants are replacements for the root parts of teeth. They are placed directly into the jawbone. Natural-looking crowns or dentures are attached to the implants to form the tooth-replacement system, which can be a simple crown or a larger bridge. This can happen immediately or several weeks later, depending on your case. After the implant integrates (attaches) to your bone, it acts as a new "root" for the crown that will replace your missing tooth. A crown (cap), which is made to look like a natural tooth, is attached to the implant and fills the space left in the mouth by the missing tooth. For this procedure to work there must be enough bone in the jaw. 

The bone has to be strong enough to hold and support the implant. If there is not enough bone, it may need to be added with a procedure called bone augmentation or bone grafting. In addition, natural teeth and supporting tissues near where the implant will be placed must be in good health. Most dental implants are successful, and there are a few steps you can take to help ensure success and make your implant last. They are: Practice good oral hygiene, quit smoking, visit your dentist, and avoid chewing on hard foods etc..
