Dental Implants is the right procedure when it comes to teeth loss. It also replaces missing roots which avoids the dislocation of the jaw bone structure. These are directly implanted into the jaw bone, as opposed to dentures, which are removable and have the possibility to lose their proper fit with time.
The dental implant procedure is a surgical process which requires your dentist to cut the gum tissues, and then drill a hole in the jawbone into which the titanium implant will be placed. A dental implant procedure includes a recovery time period before the dental restoration can be attached. Once it has been attached, the dental implant system should be well maintained through a good oral hygiene system.
Minimal discomfort and swelling are expected in the recovery time, as well as minor bruising and bleeding. But don’t worry as this can be only experienced in the early stages and your dentist at Kerrisdale General & Sedation Dentistry will give you painkillers should you need them.
Regular dental appointments are important to guarantee that recovery will proceed as perfectly as possible, and to see to it that the oral implants are optimally sustained. Contact us if you’re interested in dental implants.
