What you should know about Dental Implant
What is a Dental Implant?
According to the Academy of General Dentistry, an implant is an artificial tooth “root” surgically implanted in your gum. It is fabricated from titanium and bone-like ceramic materials that merge with your bone and can provide a base for a crown or bridge.
It is currently one of the best long-term options for tooth replacement. Feel at ease at our dental clinic Mont Kiara as we offer meticulous services and painless experience.
Now let’s talk about the advantages and successes of the Dental implantation
- The dental implants are stable and secure. They are very much like your natural teeth. The procedure has a high success rate.
- They don’t affect your other teeth. The implants do not need support from the healthier teeth, nor do the healthy teeth need to be adjusted, unlike using a dental bridge.
- Eating is not a problem. In fact, it is easier and more natural than other dental treatments. You can enjoy your meal without pain and difficulty.
- Cleaning is easier. These are cleaned in the same way that your natural teeth are cleaned, so it isn’t a hassle
Preparing for your dental implants
- You will either be placed under sedation or injected with local anesthesia during the procedure If you receive the former it would be advised that you do not eat or drink anything 8 to 12 hours before the surgery to avoid feeling nauseated after the procedure.
- Don’t be too alarmed if you experience bleeding after the procedure. This would be eased by biting on a piece of gauze
- You will be prescribed with medication for pain in cases where you experience pain. If there is swelling, apply an ice pack to the swollen area.
- You would be able to return to work the following day but avoid major activity during the week as you may continue to experience discomfort and swelling. Consult your surgeon for more information
- To avoid complications, be sure to keep up with dental hygiene. Visiting your dentist 3 to 4 times a year is recommended.
