The Dental Implantation Procedure
Here is the step-by-step process for a dental implant. You can have an idea about the same before you decide to go for an implantation procedure.
- Extraction: If a particular tooth is badly damaged due to an accident or simply bacterial decay the affected tooth needs to be removed or extracted first. This is done keeping in mind that the bone mass in the area surrounding the socket are intact.
- Grafting the socket: The site of the extracted tooth is normally cleared off using a fine surgical curette. After the granular material is cleared off the walls of this hollow are also often scrapped to initiate some amount of bleeding! This is done so that the implants get a strong base. The socket is then filled with some grafting material and the site is allowed to heal.
- Placing the implant: Holes are drilled into the jawbone surgically and the implants are posted there. There are two implants on either side of the empty site- they actually serve the purpose of your natural tooth roots!
- Placing the abutment: An abutment serves the purpose of a base upon which the artificial tooth (crown) will be finally placed. Abutments just past the gum line such that they are slightly visible when you open your mouth. They keep themselves attached to the implants. Once the shape and shade of the artificial tooth is determined, it is placed atop the abutment.
- Choosing your artificial tooth: The purpose of dental implants is not completely achieved until the artificial tooth is placed. The choice of the artificial tooth totally rests upon the candidate. One may go for a fixed or a removable tooth. If you choose to have your tooth removed while cleaning or taking rest you might go for the removable ones. However, if you are lazy enough, go for the fixed ones!
