What to expect during tooth replacement procedure
The procedure is dependent on the type of dental implant chosen. Dental implants are placed on the jawbone and allowed time to heal. This time period can be in months giving the bone time to grow around the implant for effective support. After the jawbone has grown around the implant in a process called osseointegration, abutment is placed through a minor surgery, this is the place where the crown will attach , the gums are allowed to heal for about two weeks and the artificial tooth is placed.
Tooth Replacement Options
There are different tooth replacement options using dental implants ;
Single Tooth Replacement - A single implant is inserted into the jaw bone to act as the root of the tooth. Then a crown is placed on top with the esthetic appearance of the natural teeth. Single tooth replacement cost is slightly higher compared to the other options. It’s also considered the most effective form of dental implant treatment. It has a high success rate hence more durable.

When multiple teeth are missing you will not need to have every tooth implant done separately. Bridged implants can be done where the implant teeth act as support for bridgework. This can help to avoid using healthy teeth as support for the bridge.
For example, if you are missing three teeth in a row, we can place two implants, one on either
side of the gap, and a crown in between that has no implant underneath. That way, you will not need to use any of your remaining natural teeth as bridge supports, which could weaken them
and make them more susceptible to decay.
Sometimes one may need to do all teeth replacement. Dental implants can be used to support the entire upper or lower arch of replacement teeth. Teeth are permanently fixed in the month and are never removed.

Implants can be used to support removable dentures. Traditionally removable dentures are placed on the gums which are movable tissues. Implants give them firm support making them comfortable to wear.

Poor oral hygiene and excessive biting forces are the common causes of dental implant loosening and failure after successful fusion.
Poor oral hygiene can lead to a destructive bacterial infection called peri-implantitis. Dental implants regular cleaning by professional and daily brushing of the teeth can increase their durability.
Excessive biting forces can come from either a habit of clenching or grinding your teeth, or
an insufficient number of implants to handle the forces generated by your bite. You should
receive the correct number of implants so this does not happen.
