Certain oral conditions need more than an aesthetic treatment. With a surgical application the workings of the chewing apparatus can be re-established, increasing the patient’s well-being. The rejuvenated smile of the patient is the pinnacle of health and beauty.
Three beauty-surgical applications are the most frequent ones, when it comes to the replacement of a missing tooth: Dental Implants, Bridges and Dentures.
Dental Implants are a sturdier and longer-lasting alternative for people who are missing multiple teeth and who have sufficient bone density to support them. No tooth replacement option quite compares with dental implants.
Dental implants are surgically embedded in the jawbone and consist of two parts – a titanium post implanted into the jawbone below the gum line and a tooth replacement attached to the top of the post. Once the post is in place, bone, and gum tissue heals around it, making it a durable substitute for the natural tooth root. After the posts have healed appropriately, tooth restorations such as porcelain crowns, bridges, or dentures may be mounted to them. Because the post is rooted in the bone cells of your jaw, it has the strength of a real tooth and Dr Fedele creates your tooth with all aesthetic considerations, it is virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
The dental implants procedure typically involves three steps: implantation, osseointegration (while the jawbone heals), and attachment of restorations. The treatment is made over months. In order to be considered for dental implants, you must have enough healthy bone mass in your jaw to support an implant post.
