What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a dental device made of titanium that is used to replace a missing tooth or to serve as an anchor for dentures.the implant consists of a metal post which is implanted into the jawbone where it acts as an artificial root. The dental implant is made of titanium, a metal that is used in many other types of prosthetics as well, including artificial joints.in implant-supported bridges and dentures, the post serves as an anchor to keep the denture or bridge securely in place. when replacing a lost tooth, a dental implant abutment is placed on the dental implant and serves as a connector for a crown
What is the procedure for a dental implant?
Replacing missing tooth or teeth consists of two phases: a surgical phase and a prosthetic (or restorative) phase
Step 1 – Surgical phase, dental implant placement
During the surgical phase, performed by one of the best implantologist in Panchkula dr. Mohit Makkar.the dental implant (a titanium artificial root) is placed in the jaw bone.it replaces the root of the missing tooth and fuses with the bone in a process called” osseointegration”.if your jaw doesn’t have sufficient bone to support the implant, a bone graft may be used to augment the bone. the graft can be placed along with the implant at the best dental clinic in Panchkula
Step 2 – Restorative phase or dental implant prosthesis placement
After a few weeks of dental implant surgery, the Dental Implant gets ready for the restorative phase. At this stage, the dental implant abutment is placed on the implant and an impression is taken. the same impression is sent to a dental lab where custom dental implant crowns, dental implant-supported dentures, and dental implant-supported bridges are fabricated. then the final prosthesis is inserted and adjusted for a comfortable fit inside the mouth.
Immediate implant placement -One-day dental implant and a dental crown is possible?
Depending upon the status of bone available in mandibular and maxillary jaws and upon the health of the same bone available for dental implant same-day dental implants can be done during extraction visit in the same socket from where the tooth extraction is done. this whole process is IMMEDIATE DENTAL IMPLANT PLACEMENT. Dr. Mohit Makkar during your initial consultation will determine if one can become a candidate for the immediate dental implant placement or the same day dental implants.
If the implant procedure can not be done immediately then a gap of 3 to six months is required after the extraction usually.reasons for the same can be either deficient bone or the deep underlying infection in bones.
