For Islamabad residents who have lost a tooth or, in some situations, need a full new set of teeth, dental implants serve as the foundation for the placement of artificial, realistic-looking teeth. Dental implants combined with prostheses resemble the appearance and functionality of your original teeth as an alternative to dentures and bridges. You may confidently eat, wash your teeth, and smile thanks to dental implants. At Bite Works Dental Care ,we specialise in placing dental implants, giving our Islamabad patients access to the latest cutting-edge dental technology that has been shown to improve oral health.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
Dental implants are made to replace the root(s), crown(s), functionality, and appearance of natural teeth, whether you’ve had to have a diseased tooth that cannot be treated with conventional dentistry removed or you’ve lost a significant number of your natural teeth and those that are left can no longer adequately perform their intended “job.”
Our team of experienced Dentists at Bite Works Dental care embed a biocompatible metal, often a titanium rod, straight into your jaw bone to produce an anchor that resembles the natural root of your tooth. A post, or abutment, is simultaneously attached to the dental implant’s top.
Because the jaw bone depends on the tooth’s root to support its growth, if patients wait too long to replace the lost tooth or teeth, their jaw bone will start to retreat. Many individuals are shocked to learn that their bones are in reality living tissue. Therefore, when the jaw bone recedes, it not only changes the bottom half of the facial structure’s overall contour, giving patients a younger-looking appearance than they actually are, but it may also make it difficult or even impossible to safely install dental implants. We advise our patients to replace their lost teeth as soon as possible because of this.
Which Prosthetic Types Are Available?
The number of teeth removed and their locations determine which prosthetic teeth are used. To replace natural teeth, there are three alternatives available:
Single Missing Tooth Crown
A dental implant must have a crown connected to it.
Partial Prosthesis (Fixed Bridge) For Two or More Teeth
The partial prosthesis often only needs two or three dental implants and does not require its own dental implant to be linked to it.
All Teeth in Your Upper or Lower Jaw Completely Replaced
Depending on whether the prosthesis is detachable or fixed, there are many alternatives for the appropriate number of dental implants. A fixed prosthesis may only be removed by a dentist, in contrast to an overdenture (removable prosthesis) that is attached to a bar or ball in socket. There are also dentures that are affixed to dental implants permanently, providing you real teeth that you may care for like your natural teeth by brushing and flossing. You may get your smile repaired in only one appointment if you meet the requirements and desire these permanent implant-supported dentures.
Dental implants’ advantages
- Prevent bone loss to maintain face structure.
- appearance and performance of natural teeth
- Long-term oral health improvement
- Boost comfort levels when speaking and eating
- protect nearby teeth
Why pick dental implants above other options for replacement?
You may be asking yourself, “Why should I invest the time and money on dental implants rather than dentures?” Perhaps you witnessed the extent your parents and grandparents had to go to simply to be able to eat because they had dentures. If you conduct some study on the drawbacks of dentures, we are confident that you will quickly come to the conclusion that they are unpleasant and humiliating, to mention just a few issues they provide.
The drawbacks of dentures
First of all, unlike dental implants, which are cleaned and flossed like real teeth, dentures must be taken out and immersed in a cleaning solution. The sticky paste required to prevent dentures from sliding or falling out of position is another highly uncomfortable aspect of wearing dentures. Imagine finding your dentures floating around in your mouth while out to lunch with coworkers or in a private setting. Your lifestyle may be affected in a variety of ways by your dread that this very real potential may come to pass. Dentures lack roots in addition to the unreliable adhesive paste. What then will keep your jaw bone healthy and stop jawbone resorption?
Concerns with Bridges?
Bridges may help you save a little money, but they are essentially a short-term solution. Bridges are prone to collapse. They are brittle and must be changed as soon as possible. Your dentist will need to file the healthy teeth on each side of the missing tooth down to nubs so that expensive fake crowns may be installed if you are losing a tooth or, let’s say, two teeth next to each other. The central artificial tooth will thereafter be supported by flimsy wires. In addition to being outdated and temporary, bridges and dentures will eventually prove to be more trouble than they are worth.
The Right Individual for Dental Implants
Your dentist will need to analyze your dental and medical history before performing a dental implant treatment. Patients in Islamabad who have lost bone tissue can need bone grafting or other operations to get ready for dental implants.
Recovery following dental implants
One of our surgical assistants will go through post-operative care instructions with you or your escort once our doctors have finished your dental implant operation. Depending on the kind of sedation used during your surgery, you may subsequently be allowed to leave the office on your own or be handed over to a responsible relative or friend who will drive you home.
An outline of the dental implant healing process is provided below:
24 hours following surgery
You could only suffer slight pain and sensitivity in the treatment sites since our specialists only use the most cutting-edge methods and equipment to insert dental implants.
You’ll be given prescriptions for medications to take after surgery. These frequently consist of an antibiotic course, an antiseptic mouthwash, and an anti-inflammatory. To ease discomfort, you can use over-the-counter pain relievers. The doctor will prescribe harsher painkillers if that turns out to be necessary.
2–5 Days Following Surgery
During this period, you might anticipate a modest rise in inflammation and a decrease in pain.
Follow the aftercare recommendations for dental hygiene that our specialists have provided.
Up to two weeks following surgery
During this period, it is advised to continue eating soft foods and gradually transition back to your usual diet. Anything that is overly hot or cold should not be consumed.
Don’t engage in strenuous physical activity unless our physicians have cleared you to do so.
+6 Weeks Following Surgery
Your dental implant procedure should have left you well healed. A thorough recovery time estimate should be discussed with your doctor since it will depend on your individual treatment plan and any pre-surgery procedures you may have needed.
