What Do You Know About Dental Implants?

Dental implants are surgically implanted into the jawbone or gum of the patient so that artificial teeth can be attached to them. A dental implant is basically a medical device that interfaces directly with the bone in your mouth or jaw to serve as an artificial tooth, denture, bridge, crown, or even an orthodontic cement anchor. A dental implant can either be made of titanium, which is the most common type; dentures made from porcelain, composite, ceramic, and/or resin materials; or artificial tooth-like devices that include implants, caps, crowns, retainers, and dental bridges. Implants are anchored into the jawbone or gum through surgical techniques, which depend on the nature, and location of the implant, as well as on the patient’s oral health and history.

Best dental implants in Dubai are considered to be good dental investment for long-term treatment because they are virtually maintenance-free. They need little or no maintenance beyond cleaning and repositioning during normal dental procedures. They are capable of resisting extreme temperatures, including high and low temperatures; and can endure extreme stresses and forces that commonly occur during dental procedures.

Dental implants are composed of a single crown or multiple crowns, which may be needed to address a wide variety of dental problems and tooth restoring needs. When a patient suffers from one or more tooth loss problems, such as a chipped tooth, broken tooth, or tooth decay, a dental implant’s solution may be recommended. The most common types of solutions include the following:

Single Crown: A single crown is used when the tooth is healthy but there are one or more abnormally shaped teeth that require a more stable supporting structure. To create this stable structure, dental implants are placed in the open dental implant base or osseointegration.

Bone Grafting: For patients who suffer from tooth loss and subsequent tooth loss complications, a bone-grafting procedure may be required. For patients with good oral health, a natural tooth root is sufficient but if the issue involves a poor or receding jaw bone, an artificial crown will be required.

These are the most common procedures that dental implants use and there is little to no pain when the procedures are done by the best orthodontist in Dubai. They are relatively painless and do not require any downtime for recovery. There are some minor complications with dental implants that patients should be aware of, however. Patients may experience some swelling and bruising at the site of placement, but these typically subside once they have healed. They also may experience difficulty eating after the procedure and oral hygiene may become difficult after a period of time.
