An Introduction to Dental Implant Procedures Dental implant procedure involve placing a titanium implant into the jaw and attaching a ceramic crown once the jaw bone has fused to the implant, securing it in place.

The methods of achieving this are varied, according to the condition of the implant site. The fastest procedure is done in a single day and can be performed if a tooth is replaced in a healthy gum over good bone. The most complex dental implant procedures involve grafting or growing new bone and can take six months or more.

If a tooth is broken or is decayed and needs to be removed, as long as the surrounding gum is not damaged, the replacement may be installed on the same day as the damaged tooth is extracted. It will require a temporary crown which can be replaced with a permanent crown 3-6 months later, once the bone fusion has taken place. Care should be taken with these implants and the patient might be advised to avoid certain foods for the duration of the healing process.

Gum disease, also referred to as periodontal disease, is an infection in the tissue and bones that surround and hold up the teeth. Bacteria found in plaque mainly cause gum disease.

There are several types of gum disease, the mildest is gingivitis. A person with gingivitis has red or inflamed gums, which bleed easily. Good oral hygiene is the first defense against gingivitis or any other gum disease.

When gingivitis is not treated, it can lead to a more severe infection called periodontitis. Periodontitis damages the teeth’s supporting bones and tissues, creating gaps between teeth and gums and eventually causing tooth loss.

While bacteria in plaque is the primary cause of gum disease, other contributing factors include smoking and stress, both of which decreases the body’s ability to fight off infection. People with diabetes and other diseases that weaken the body’s immune system are also at a high risk of developing gum disease. Lack of proper nutrition can worsen this condition. Hormonal...

Gum disease, also known as gingivitis, is a serious condition that will normally result in tooth loss. Gingivitis and periodontal disease are the most common forms of gum disease in adults. One way to prevent both types of gum disease is to brush your teeth daily and remove as much plaque as possible. If you allow the plaque to build up, it may result in gum disease.

Gingivitis is known as inflammation in the tissues of the gums. If plaque and tartar build up along the gum line, the gums will eventually get swollen and irritated. Over time, the gums will get very tender and start to appear puffy. When you brush your teeth, you will may notice that your gums become very sore and they start to bleed with little to no pressure. If you notice blood when brushing, chances are you have gingivitis.

During this stage of gingivitis, there is no loss of bone structure. You can help to prevent gingivitis by flossing and brushing daily. If you have gingivitis and you don’t seek treatment, it could lead to periodontal...

Dental implants treatment is the most popular way of restoring missing teeth. Dental implants are tiny insertions which are made from bio compatible items. These materials are surgically inserted in the jawbone of the patient’s mouth to support the damaged teeth. These bio compatible materials are made up of various shapes and sizes, which are selected and used by the dentist as per the requirement of the patient. Unlike dentures, implants do not loosen or slip off or cause discomfort while eating.

For example, if you are a fit person, the total process might take less than 6 weeks time, but if you have other conditions like high blood sugar or other conditions, it can take more time than specified.

Implanting teeth in the jawbone is a simple procedure and is easily performed with local anesthesia. In special cases, the doctor may opt for general anesthesia.
