How Dental Implants Work?
Mostly, dental implants are formed with Titanium and similar alloys. These materials have the unique ability to promote bone formation around the implant surface. The implant gradually becomes fully fused within the jaw bone. This process is called Osseo-integration, and it is the main reason behind the longevity and retention of dental implants – both removable dentures and supported fixed dentures.
How are Dental Implants Placed?
Placement of dental implants is done in two or three steps. We also provide same day dental implants for selected clinical cases. Dr. Ahmed will first examine your teeth and take a long, thorough thorough examination of your medical and dental records. Next, the soft tissue on top of the bone where the implant will be inserted will then be anesthetized. An incision will be made in the tissue and a flap will be raised. After, a hole will be drilled into the jaw bone, and the implant will be inserted carefully into place.
How is the Implant Loaded?
If your implant loading will be delayed, then a healing screw will be placed over the implant and the flap is sutured. Alternatively, if you decide on a same day implant, a suitable prosthesis (like permanent dentures, crown or a bridge) is secured to the implant immediately after it is placed. In case of delayed implant loading, placing the prostheses is delayed until you are healed completely.
