What is implant surgery?

Dental implant surgery is an alternative solution to dentures and bridgework and a permanent option to replace missing teeth with artificial teeth that look and function like real ones. They're a reliable choice for people who've lost teeth due to disease or accident. Your dentist will determine which type of implant is best for you based on your unique needs and situation. The procedure is usually done on an outpatient basis under general anaesthesia and may require serval procedures. Your dentist will make an incision in your mouth to access your jaw and tooth sockets below the gum line. He'll then place a surgical implant into the bone below the injured area to create a foundation for a replacement tooth. After the implant is in place, your dentist will put dental cement around it to secure it in place and increase the stability of the implant. The dental cement will harden after 30 seconds, leaving your new teeth in place permanently. The healing process might take serval months, yet you'll be able to eat and drink normally after your procedure; however, you may experience mild soreness for 7-10 days as the infection is removed from your bone graft site.
