Frequently Asked Questions About
Here are things you need to do to prepare for dental implants.
- Stock up on soft foods, such as smoothies, yogurt and soups, which will be easy on your teeth and gums.
- Arrange for someone else to drive you home after the procedure. The anesthesia can make it unsafe for you to drive, so having a designated driver is advised.
- Allot the next few days for rest and recovery. Dental implants require a period of adjustment, and it is important to give your body time to heal.
- Get a full night’s rest before your procedure. This will help your body to be well-rested and prepared for the next day.
Following these tips can help ensure that your dental implant surgery goes smoothly.
Dental implants are considered a safe and effective way to replace missing teeth. The procedure has a high success rate, and complications are rare. Implants are made of titanium, a biocompatible material well-tolerated by the body, making implants a safe replacement for missing teeth.
Dental implants are a popular and effective way to replace missing teeth, and it requires a surgical procedure. The surgery is typically performed under local anesthesia, though some patients may choose to be sedated. First, your dentist will make an incision in the gums and embed the implant into the bone. The gums will then be stitched close.
The implant will need to fuse with the bone, a process known as osseointegration, which can take a couple of months. Once the implant is securely in place, an abutment or a connector will be placed on top of it. An impression will be taken, which will be used to fabricate a custom crown. The crown will then be placed on top of the abutment, completing the dental implant treatment.
Most health funds will cover at least a portion of the cost of dental implants. However, you should check with your specific health fund to see if you are covered and how much you have to pay out-of-pocket.
