Dental Implants, LeSueur MN

What’s involved in getting dental implants?

The entire process of obtaining dental implants calls for several visits to the dentist over a number of months.

X-rays and impressions are taken of the jaw and teeth to figure out the exact location of bone tissue, gum structure, and the spacing readily available for an implant. As the area is numb, the dental implant will be surgically placed into the bone and then the area is permitted to heal and incorporate the implant onto the bone for up to six months. Depending on the type of implant employed, an extra surgical procedure could be necessary to put the “post” that will keep the artificial tooth in position. With different types of implants, the post and anchor already are connected and placed at the same time.

After several weeks of healing time, the artificial tooth or teeth are constructed and fitted onto the post part of the anchor. Because a number of fitting can be necessary, this action can take one to two months to finish. After a healing period, the synthetic teeth are firmly connected to the implant, supplying outstanding stability and convenience to the patient.

You are going to receive care guidelines once your treatment is finished.

Reasons for getting dental implants:

• Replace one or more missing teeth without impacting adjacent teeth.
• Fix bite issues or pain triggered by teeth moving into the space of a missing tooth.
• Restore a patient’s confidence in their appearance.
• Repair chewing, speech, and food digestion problems.
• Restore or boost facial tissues.
• Support a denture or bridge, making them more stable and comfortable.
