What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a biological fusible material made of titanium or zirconium. It acts as an artificial tooth which is used as a replacement for a natural missing tooth. This is the best alternative for bridge or a denture.
Who is a candidate for an implant?
Anyone who is having one or more missing tooth is a candidate for the implant treatment. Along with those people, edentulous patients are also the best candidates for dental implants. If a person misses any of his teeth at any age, then it has to be fixed to avoid future complications. Getting implanted tooth doesn't only replace the natural teeth also the functionality too. And also if anyone is having a loose dentures and falling bridges, then it has to be replaced by fixed dental implants. After getting the dental implant, the patient's chewing ability will be increased dramatically and also their facial aesthetics too.
Are implants cost effective?
Initially yes! But if you consider for a long run then it is cheaper compared to bridges as there are changes of bridges getting failed or falling down in the long run and also the supporting bones might get lose the hold. Hence bridges costs you more than implants in the long run.
Are implants procedure painful?
This process will be started after administering the local anesthesia to numb the area. Once the surgical area got numbed, the patient will be able to feel the pain but they can be aware of what is going on. There will be minimum pain which can be cured with medications and proper hygiene care. The dental implant procedure is the best way to restore the missing teeth compared to dental bridges and dentures. Implants also help in avoiding jaw bone from getting resorb. Along with restoring the missing tooth, implants also restore the functionality of the natural tooth which looks exactly like a natural tooth. According to studies, implants are having a 97% of success rate and it can be 100% only if you take a good care as prescribed by our King County dentist Dr. Buttar.
When you extract a tooth, will you prepare a site for an implant?
Yes! We do always recommend patients to get a bone graft placed as soon as the tooth is extracted. Placing a bone graft helps in preserving jaw bone volume to get the implants if not bone starts shrinking three dimentionally. Hence it is better to plan one step ahead.
Why should one get implant placed at your practice?
