A healthy smile is not always naturally possible. On the contrary, due to poor diets, vices or sedentary lifestyles, our teeth are among the first to be affected. It seems that in recent years, more young patients are facing the phenomenon of early tooth loss. This not only affects their general physiological condition but also their psychological state, creating a feeling of discomfort in communication or preventing them from fully enjoying their diet. The main solution, then, is dental implant surgery. What are its stages and what do you need to know – find out in this article, provided by the team of a high-quality dental clinic in Chisinau – Imperial Dent.
The first phase in getting a dental implant – price and choice of type
This is the main stage of treatment because it decides how effectively and quickly your problem of missing teeth will be solved. Your dentist is the one who determines it, according to your wishes, informing you about what type of implant is needed. At this stage, the doctor decides the stages of treatment and estimates some figures on the duration and/or costs. We give priority to premium implants, as they have a remarkably high degree of success and give the best results, but of course, some alternatives can be discussed, depending on the budget.
Taking blood tests and sanitizing the oral cavity
As with other types of surgeries, the dental implant operation must be preceded by a medical examination in light of clinical examinations and computed tomography. In this way, potential causes of the body’s rejection of the implant or other complications for your health are excluded.Cleaning out of the oral cavity is nothing more than proper hygiene, to eliminate any bacteria and microorganisms that could cause infection at the insertion area of the dental implant.
Dental implant insertion
It is the most complex stage of dental implant surgery. In this phase the connection between the construction and the bone formation of the mandible takes place. At the same time, it is the stage that decides the longevity of the implant and how thorough its fixation is. In this case, the dentist will estimate the quality of the bone to find certain problems that may arise. It is a procedure that, thanks to the benefits of anesthesia, can be completely free of discomfort and pain for the patient.
It is worth mentioning that there are several types of implantations:
- Immediate implantation – is performed immediately after the extraction of a tooth, in the same visit;
- Delayed implantation – is performed only when the bone and gum after tooth extraction have recovered;
Application of the gingival shaper
It is applied in the same stage as the implantation or in 3-6 months when the dental implant is already integrated into the bone.
Prosthesis and completion of the treatment
The last stage – the crown is the masterpiece of the dentist’s work, as it belongs to the aesthetic dimension of the implant, in which the artificially made teeth are placed. At the same time, it is the phase in which the patient can decide the level of comfort they have with the implant, and the doctor can find any necessary adjustments. Beyond all these steps, it is important to work only with qualified specialists, to considerably reduce the risks of dental implant surgery. We are ready to offer you advice and aid you on the path to a healthier smile.
