A dental implant is an artificial tooth root placed into your jaw to hold the replacement tooth in place. A dental implant is the best thing for your natural, healthy teeth. A stable and strong dental implant restores the lost tooth so that it looks beautiful, feels, adapts and functions like a natural tooth. Other options such as bridges or prostheses can lead to bone deterioration and can interfere with eating, speaking, smiling and other activities in everyday life.
An artificial root is built to last. This makes it cost-effective and best long-term solution for most of the people. Usually, tooth-supported dental bridges last 5 to 7 years and sometimes more than 10 years with proper care. However, they may need to be replaced after some time. Those costs can really add up over time. While dental implants (an artificial root) may need periodic adjustments, they usually last a lifetime when properly placed and cared for over time by the local dental implant expert.
After how many months can I do An artificial root?
Dental implantation is carried out by classical and one-stage methods. The classical technique is applied after the expiration of two or more months from the date of the operation to remove the tooth. After engraftment of a dental implant (duration of 2-4 months), prosthetics should be performed (installation of a crown or bridge prosthesis on an artificial root).If the implant is installed immediately after the extraction of the tooth, we are dealing with one-stage or express implantation. This procedure involves implanting a dental implant, fixing the abutment and installing a temporary crown for one visit to a dentist.
Conducting express implantation is possible only if the patient has suitable anatomical conditions in the oral cavity. One-stage implantation is considered more comfortable and less traumatic in comparison with the classical technique.
