Once you decide to get dental implant treatment, you will need to set a medical plan with your dentist during your first appointment. This will help you know more details about the operation, and your doctor will know for how many days it will take the operation.
Furthermore, it is also vital to consider your age and the condition of your jawbone.
Am I a good candidate for a dental implant?
Some criteria determine who is suitable for dental implants. Even so, expert surgeons will make the best decision in this matter.
Dental implants may be right for you if you:
What is a dental implant, and how is it done?
Dental implants are titanium cylinders surgically installed in the jawbone where underneath the gums, there are missing teeth. The dental implant works as a substitute for the root of a missing tooth. The closest thing to imitating a natural tooth is having a dental implant merged to the jawbone because it stands alone without affecting the nearby teeth and has excellent stability.
The dental implant is not a one-day process. If a doctor claims they will perform dental surgery on you in one day, it may not be reliable. The biggest reason for this is that the artificial root must fuse with the jawbone. And this bone fusion process can take about a few months.
Being patient is the key to Dental Implant.
One day process dental implant surgeries are not functional as the traditional ones. Besides, doctors who will perform your one-day dental implant cannot use the same permanent techniques and special materials. For a stable tooth root, an operation process planned in detail and spread over time will be healthier.
