With advances in dental technology, teeth replacement techniques have progressed remarkably. Dental implants have revolutionized the way teeth were replaced with traditional means like full or partial dentures. In just 30 years, they have become the best teeth-replacing option. Dental implants are the closest you can get to natural, healthy, and fully-functional teeth.
A dental implant is a titanium screw which is surgically placed in the jaw to act as a false tooth root for dental prosthetics like crowns, bridges, or dentures. The basis for dental implants is osseointegration. It is a biologic process which allows biocompatible materials like titanium to integrate with the natural bone and become a part of it. Due to osseointegration, dental implants or false tooth roots become well integrated with the jawbone. Connectors or abutments are attached to implants to hold dental prosthetics in place.
Dental implants require a surgical placement
The dental implant placement begins with a comprehensive examination with a CT Scan to determine whether you are an ideal candidate to receive dental implants or not. The following criteria should be met to undergo a dental implant placement:
Tooth extraction is the process of removing a tooth that cannot be saved with restorative treatment, or that poses an immediate risk to the rest of your oral health.For instance, impacted wisdom teeth that push against existing molars can lead to severe tooth damage and discomfort, and therefore are often extracted to prevent further problems.
Other causes for tooth extraction can include:
A wisdom tooth is the third molar that erupts through the gums on each of the four quadrants of the human dentition during the age of 17-23. Most people have four wisdom teeth but it is also possible to have none, fewer or more.
Wisdom teeth are considered valuable assets for the mouth when they are healthy and correctly positioned. They are the last set of teeth to appear on the dental arches and often don't have room to accommodate themselves. As a result, they become malpositioned and may potentially require extraction
