Efficient Dental Procedures
Aside from preventative check-ups, root canals, treating cavity, dentists can give you a beautiful, natural smile even when you have a bigger dental problem. Here is one of those treatments and something more about it.
When you are missing a tooth for whatever reason, dental implants are what you will probably get. They are basically artificial tooth roots that have screws in one end. This goes into your jaw, and it connects to your bone. It sounds scarier than it actually is, so you shouldn’t worry because you won’t feel any pain or discomfort since everything is done under local anesthesia.
On the surface of your gums, a small connector will be placed and it helps keep the crown in place. The crown is actually your tooth that will be designed to fit the color and shape of your natural teeth. Aside from these situations when you are missing a tooth, dental implants can be placed when you need any orthodontic work. This is done because they are stable and is easy to attach any type of prosthesis to them. Before coming to do the procedure you will have to do a scan so that the dentist can see how your teeth are aligned and is there any other problem that needs to be treated before. They will tell you how to care for it after the procedure, but the only thing you should feel is slight discomfort.
Although it sounds scary and complicated, placing implants is one of the commonest procedures done in dentistry. So, don’t be afraid, because it is practically a routine procedure many people have due to different issues.
