Dental implants offer a permanent solution to damaged, decayed, or missing teeth. They resemble tiny screws and serve the same function as the natural tooth root. They act as a strong foundation for the artificial tooth. Most of the dental implants in the market are made from titanium inserted into the jawbone through surgery.
Dental implants offer several benefits over other types of teeth restoration. Dental implants do not interfere with neighboring teeth in any way. Dental implants do not require any replacements, unlike dentures and bridges. Dental implants help in making the jawbone stronger.
All-on-6 implants refer to creating a dental prosthesis that will be anchored to the bottom or top part using titanium implants. The implants are appropriately integrated to the gum and distributed evenly along the jaw. The All-on-6 Implants can be implanted on a low-volume jawbone. It suits patients who are partially or wholly edentulous.
How Implants Prevent Bone Loss
Using dental implants to help replace missing teeth will prevent the loss of bone from taking place. This will allow your jaw to maintain its appearance and shape. Dental implants function, look, and feel like natural teeth. The dental implants integrate well with the jawbone stabilizing it with the neighboring teeth.
Dental implants also offer the jawbone the constant support and stimulation required to maintain itself effectively.
Dental implants have been in existence for close to 50 years. They are considered to be a reliable and safe tooth replacement option when performed with certified dentists. Most patients with dental implants have not experienced any major dental problems.
How Long Do Dental Implants Take to Heal?
Dental implants will take three to six months to heal fully. The healing process should never be rushed. The implant will create a permanent bond with the bone.
The process of installing a dental implant can cause slight discomfort. However, our dentists will always numb the area by administering local anesthesia, preventing pain or discomfort during the dental implant installation.
