In simple words, dental implants are replacement tooth roots that have the ability to graft itself into the gum and act as natural teeth. These Implants are made to match your natural teeth. Before getting dental implants, Sydney residents must be aware of the procedure and what it involves, so that they can better prepare for the extraction and surgery.
It must be noted here that dental implants don’t follow a general treatment plan. Since every patient has individual needs and specific issues that need to be addressed, the first step in dental implant process is the development of an individualised treatment plan. The plan is prepared by a team of professionals who have specialised training and experience in oral surgery and periodontology. Only a team of experienced professionals can prepare a treatment plan best suited to you.
The root implant is a small post made of titanium which is placed into the bone socket of the missing tooth. As the jawbone heals, it grows around the implanted metal post, anchoring it securely in the jaw. This healing and anchoring process can take anything from six to 12 weeks.
After the implant grafts itself into the jawbone, a small connector post called an abutment is attached to it to securely hold the new tooth. The new tooth or teeth is impersonates your real tooth and bite. A crown, which is a replacement tooth, is then attached to the abutment.
With cheap dental implants, Sydney residents can have the look, feel and function of their natural teeth. An implant specialist must be consulted for a suitable treatment plan.
