As a form of cosmetic dentistry, dental implants offer a permanent and proven solution to looking for a replacement for a missing tooth or smile which can be caused by issues like gum disease for example. The implant process involves attaching a custom-made, artificial tooth to an anchor post surgically implanted into the jawbone by a dentist. This post integrates into the bone, providing a firm anchor on which a natural-looking, custom-made tooth can be placed. They look, feel, and function just like real teeth, and can last a lifetime after the procedure with proper care.

What to Expect During Your Dental Implant Treatment?
The first step in the treatment is to determine the patient’s eligibility for implant therapy. The professionals at Grandstand Dental Care will first assess the current status of your teeth, gums, and jaw bone. Once the eligibility has been ascertained, a surgery appointment is scheduled.
Then, we will proceed to the following phase, which is surgery.
Our dentists will perform the procedure with utmost care and as little discomfort as possible. A local anesthetic will be injected into your gums before we begin the treatment to ensure that you do not experience any pain. You will be awake the whole time, only your mouth will go numb.
Once these basic procedures are done the dentist will drill into your gums where your missing tooth is. Then they will insert a metal rod, usually a titanium rod into that drilled hole. After this is done the dentist will clean your mouth completely and you will be sent home for a few weeks. This time is crucial because this is the time when your jawbone will heal and grow around the implant.
Once we start noticing healthy growth of the jawbone, we numb the treatment region using a local anesthetic again when the post is properly placed in the root, before connecting an abutment to the metal post. To complete the treatment, the dentist will place the crown, or new tooth, over the abutment.
That is it. Your new tooth has been implanted. Your smile has returned to its original beautiful state.
After the treatment, it is normal to feel some pain for a few days, in some cases, some swelling too. But these problems are usually temporary. Our dentists will help you with tips to reduce this post-surgery pain.
Throughout the procedure, our dentists will guide you and make sure that you are comfortable. They will also guide you on how you can maintain the good health of your newly implanted tooth so that it stays with you forever.
In case you feel even the slightest discomfort post-procedure, you can get in touch with us, we would love to help you out.
