What Are Dental Implants?

Dental Implant is actually an artificial tooth root that is surgically placed in your jaw. The purpose is to keep the replacement tooth (or the bridge) in place. Dental implants are a very effective treatment, as the success rate for it is very high. Dr. LaFrom, one of the leading dentists in the Cupertino area, assures us that for this problem, all you would need is an expert dentist and his dedicated supporting staff. 

The most amazing fact about dental implants is that they feel and look very natural. They do not even affect the border teeth in any way. The major implants include the fibrointegrated implant and the osseointegrated implant. At present, the latter is the more popular and accepted form of treatment amongst the dentists. An osseointegrated implant can be placed in a single sitting but might take three to six months to actually anchor itself. 

Dr. LaFrom says that dental implants require the cooperation of a restorative dentist and the oral surgeon. Your dental implant would be specifically designed to meet your special needs. This would depend on whether you have lost one tooth or several teeth. There are several support treatments to make the dental implant procedure more effective. These include treatments like Sinus Augmentation and Ridge Modification. You need to regularly floss and brush your teeth to keep your dental implants healthy. Follow-up visits to your dentist are equally necessary.
