Are you worried about the way your smile looks now that you have a missing tooth? If this is the case, a dental implant could be the best way to reduce your appearance worries. A dental implant is a piece of titanium metal that’s used to replace the root of your missing tooth. The implant is a small screw that’s implanted into your gum and fixed into your jawbone. Once the implant has been inserted in place, it will take a few months for it to fully fuse with the bone.
What happens next?
Once the implant has fully fused with the jawbone, it is now stable enough to be able to anchor a crown, bridge or denture to it and form a fully working tooth. Smile Design Dental recommends their dental implants in Richmond to those who want to receive a totally natural looking replacement tooth. The tooth replacements look and feel natural because the crown, bridge or denture attached to the implant are designed to blend in with your existing teeth.
How long does the dental implant procedure take?
Before any procedures are started, an initial assessment appointment is required at Smile Design Dental. This assessment will determine if there is sufficient bone to be able to accept and support the dental implant. Richmond patients will then have the dental implant inserted under a local anaesthetic and it will be around three more months for the implant to be fully integrated into the jawbone. The next stage involves taking a mould of your current teeth and creating a replacement tooth that will look totally natural and blend in with your existing teeth. Once the implant is fully integrated into the jawbone, the crown, bridge or denture will be fixed on to it and that will be the end of the procedure.
