We understand how inconvenient and annoying it is to be without teeth. Implants which has completely revolutionized dentistry also has a waiting period of 3-6 months before we get our smile back. The dentist has come up with IMMEDIATE DENTAL IMPLANTS for all those who think the waiting period is annoying. Yes, you no longer need to be embarrassed about that missing tooth as a tooth in a jiffy is all here.
WHAT IS AN IMMEDIATE DENTAL IMPLANT?
Basically an implant is a screw-like material made mostly of titanium which is placed in the jaw bone surgically to draw support for dental prosthesis. The inserted implant acts like a tooth root around which normal bone grows and finally over a period of 3 to 6 months it completely integrates with the bone. After this prosthetic rehabilitation follows and crown is fitted over the implant head.
Now imagine the same procedure in a fast forward mode that’s how an immediate dental implant works. When your dentist talks about immediate dental implants all he is going to do is place implants and attach a temporary crown on the same day. This is mainly done for esthetic purpose but immediately loaded implants could be functional as well. It can be done for single as well as multiple teeth replacement.
ARE YOU A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR IMMEDIATE DENTAL IMPLANTS?
Immediate implants are not suitable for all patients. Your dentist will not place immediate implants just because you want a treatment line that is less time-consuming. Your dentist will run a few scans to check the quality of bone. If you have any chronic diseased condition and poororal hygiene then you might not be fit for immediate dental implants. Certain habits such as clenching your teeth while asleep and smoking also give compromised results with immediate dental implants.
