A dental implant is a restorative dentistry used to restore the lost tooth. implanted tooth looks exactly like a natural tooth and also functions same. even, you can smile like before by having your smile back. the success ratio of dental implant is more compared with another restorative care.

Tooth loss can be due to:

  • Dental Decay
  • Trauma
  • Gum disease/gingivitis

If the lost tooth left is not restored, it may result in some other dental problems. The gap between the tooth can lead to tooth moving towards the gap which in turn leads to losing of tooth or gap between the tooth.

Implanted tooth involves 3 parts:

  • Implant
  • Abutment
  • Crown

Implant dentist in Boynton Beach will first take a preliminary study of the tooth loss and suggest the best treatment for the patient. Before starting with the treatment, a dental x-ray will be taken, so that it will be easy to analyse the jaw or gums of the patient. Before starting the treatment, a local anesthesia will be given to numb the area where an operation is required. Once it is done, implant dentist will make a drill to the gums to make a whole which will make a place for the implants to place. Once the implant is placed inside the gums, they will make a stitch to the gum to close the whole so that it takes times to get heal and also implant must get fuse with the jaw bone. Once the surgery got healed, the next step of procedure needs to start.

Before starting the next step, a dentist will again take an x-ray of the portion to check the status of the implant. If the implant is fixed perfectly and got fused with the bone then they will start with next step. In this step, a dentist will again cut the gum line to make a gap to place an abutment over the implant. After placing an abutment, gums will be sutured. Once the Abutment is fixed to the implant, a crown will be placed on the abutment will be the final step of the dental implants treatment. Once the crown is placed, you should avoid having solid and hot foods/beverages for at least 2 days. The pain of the surgery will be there and it will be reduced in a couple of days. If the pain persists, visit the dental office for more medications. Take the best care of your implant for the long lasting and also to make it a great success.
