Getting to Know More About Dental Implants

Talking about solutions for edentulous teeth, many people will immediately think: removable dentures. It's not wrong, but apart from removable dentures, there are actually several other solutions, such as fixed dentures and dental implants.

Compared to removable or fixed dentures, dental implants are superior in terms of strength and durability because the edentulous area will implant the artificial tooth root in the form of a screw into the alveolar bone in the upper or lower jaw, then an artificial tooth crown will be placed that resembles a tooth. original. The durability of dental implants can be said to be permanent because they are embedded in the alveolar bone tissue of the jaw, so they do not need to be replaced every few years like removable dentures or fixed dentures.

  1. Is the procedure for placing a dental implant painful?

Of course not. Minor surgical procedures in order to install dental implants are always accompanied by the administration of local anesthesia in the operation area, so that the patient will not feel pain during this procedure.

  1. What is done before a dental implant procedure?

Some of the things that must be done include; consultation and examination which will usually be accompanied by supporting examinations in the form of X-rays to determine the condition of the supporting tissues of the teeth, for example: the alveolar bone. In addition, the height and thickness of the alveolar bone is one of the keys to the success of a dental implant treatment. If there are still remnants of the roots of the teeth left, then the remaining roots must be extracted first. The condition of the teeth and mouth must be ensured to be clean and free from infection before the dental implant procedure is carried out. Early examination is also very important to find out some systemic conditions that the patient may have that could potentially hinder this procedure.

  1. Are Dental Implants Only For One Tooth Loss?

Of course not, there are several types of dental implants according to patient needs, including:

  • Single Tooth Dental Implant: A dental implant that is placed to replace a missing tooth

  • Dental Implant supported Bridge Dentures: Dental Implant in cases of missing several teeth which is installed as anchors on the bridge denture unit.

  • Dental Implants For Complete Dentures: Dental Implants that are installed to support the stability of the complete denture.

It depends from which point of view you see it. Technological developments in dentistry have made many dental treatments achievable at a more affordable price than a few years ago, including dental implants. In terms of price, dental implants are considered the most expensive compared to removable dentures or bridge dentures, but again you have to consider the various things that make dental implants the best solution for the edentulous problems, especially their permanent resistance.
