Before any implant dentistry procedure, our dental experts will perform a thorough dental exam to achieve an accurate diagnosis. Your bone quality will be analyzed to see if it is strong enough to hold the dental implants. A series of diagnostic procedures like dental X-rays, intraoral photos, dental impressions, and a CBCT scan will be done. All of these can aid in coming up with a precise diagnosis.
Once the oral condition is established, the implant surgery will commence. Basically, you can look at the procedure as a tooth extraction that's done in reverse. Instead of extracting the tooth, a root form metal is inserted into the gums. There will be some drilling involved where a hole will be made into the bone. An implant with exact measurements will be inserted into the hole.
Implant dentistry is the best option if you want to replace lost or damaged teeth. Since implants are surgically inserted into the bone, the replacement will feel more natural as compared to dentures. There are several dental implant procedures according to the oral condition of the patient. Sometimes, mini dental implants are used when a patient cannot accommodate the conventional type of dental implants. Again, the type of procedure is a case to case basis, thus the importance of having a thorough consultation with an expert dentist.
