Dental implants are tooth root replacements. These implants provide a firm foundation for the existing tooth structure. These implants have many advantages namely improves speech, more comfort etc. Tooth implants have relatively high success rates if they are of good quality.
Dental implants procedures are mostly done under local anaesthesia. Placing dental implants is commonly performed through a 3 stage process. In the first process, the implant flush is surgically buried with the bone, underneath the gum. Such a process shall facilitate a more proper healing process. However, the implant has to be exposed surgically after the healing process. The surgeon then checks whether the implant has been successfully integrated or not. He then connects a sort of post that penetrated into the mouth through the gum. The process is referred to as abutment. Different forms of abutment exist in the market. For preparing for the final restorative stage, the Dentist uses a cuff through which the dentist accesses the implant. The abutment can be placed at the same time of placing the implant. The method is advantageous over the fact that there is no need for a second surgery. However, healing time should be sufficient in this process also. During the healing time, the abutments must be protected from chewing forces.
