The Importance of Dental Implant Placement for Oral Health

Dental implants do more than improve the appearance of your smile. They also play a significant role in maintaining your oral health. When a tooth is lost, the jawbone in the space deteriorates due to lack of stimulation. This loss of bone can lead to the shifting of other teeth, changes in facial structure, and difficulties in speech and eating. Dental implants stimulate the jawbone like natural teeth, helping prevent these issues and promote overall oral health.

The Steps of Dental Implant Placement

Dental implant placement is a multi-step process requiring precision and expertise. While the process may seem lengthy, remember each step is crucial in ensuring the success and longevity of your dental implant. Here's a simplified breakdown of what you can expect during the procedure:
  • Consultation and Planning: We'll thoroughly examine your oral health before any procedure. This includes reviewing your medical history, taking X-rays, and creating a personalized treatment plan catering to your needs.
  • Tooth Extraction: If the tooth hasn't already fallen out, it must be extracted. We ensure this process is as comfortable as possible for our patients.
  • Implant Placement: During this step, the dental implant, a small titanium post, is surgically placed into the jawbone. This post will serve as the root for your new artificial tooth.
  • Bone Growth and Healing: Over the next few months, the implant will fuse with your jawbone in a process known as osseointegration. This creates a strong foundation for your new tooth.
  • Abutment Placement: Once the implant has fully integrated with the jawbone, an abutment, or connector, is attached to the implant.
  • Crown Placement: Finally, a custom-made crown matching the color and shape of your natural teeth is attached to the abutment, completing your dental implant.
