What are dental implants?
A dental implant offers a permanent solution to your missing tooth or gap in your smile. A dental implant is a screw-like anchor that is an artificial replacement for your natural tooths root where an imitation tooth is then clipped onto the screw to replicate a natural tooth.
These artificial roots, or screws, are made from oral and medical grade materials, such as titanium, that are appropriate for the human body to ensure the longevity of this treatment. The screw is attached to either the top or bottom jawbone, or in some cases both, and the surrounding gum tissue and provide a stable base for replacement teeth, such as dental bridges, crowns and dentures.
The dental implant treatments that we offer here at NovaDental can be utilised to replace one singular tooth, several missing teeth, or to simply support partial or full dentures. The dentures and crowns remain inside the mouth indefinitely once attached and do not require any adhesive to remain intact so you can continue to live your life without any hindrance.
How long does a dental implant treatment take?
The process of inserting a single dental implant can approximately take 1-2 hours, however, you need to make multiple visits to the dental practice to complete each stage of the implant to achieve optimum results.
How long is the recovery time for a dental implant procedure?
There are many factors that can influence the recovery time of your dental implant. As each case is unique and differs depending on the patient's needs and how many implants they require, the downtime needed to recover may be anywhere between a couple of days to a few weeks. Most patients are pain free and able to live their lives normally after only a few days. You jawbone and gum tissue will take anywhere between 3 and 6 months to fully recover and for the implant to completely bond to the bone.
Are dental implants safe?
Dental implants are one of the safest and most effective solutions for replacing missing teeth. The implants are all made with materials that are suited and are safe for the human body. These dental implants are a strong and safe foundation for missing teeth.
Once the dental implant has been properly inserted and attached to the post, there should be no pain and the implant should feel comfortable. It is important to note that immediately after surgery you may experience some pain and discomfort, however, this will subside in a few days once the healing process has begun. To treat this pain, you may use the help of over the counter pain medication that you know works for you to ease the pain.
As with all dental treatments, there are some side effects that may occur, however, they can all be easily managed. These include:
• Nerve damage
• Injury to, or damage to other teeth or possibly blood vessel
Although these side effects are extremely uncommon, if you contact one of the dental experts at Nova Dental as soon as any symptoms occur, they can easily solve these issues.
