In this article, we’ll show you the benefits of dental implants and how dental surgeons attach your new teeth.
Dental implants are permanent replacements for missing teeth. It consists of a metal post, usually made of titanium or other similar material, a crown or false teeth, and an abutment that connects the metal post and the tooth.
Let’s dive right in.
How Do Full Mouth Dental Implants Work?
Full-mouth dental implants sit where you had your original, natural teeth. These are custom-shaped to fit your mouth. A little metal screw is inserted into your jawbone where you once had your natural tooth. This creates a strong foundation for your prosthetic teeth and a series of implants can support a row of teeth.
The dental surgeon makes a cut in your gums to expose the bone. Then, he drills holes into the exposed bone to accommodate the dental implant. The dental implant is inserted deep into the bone. As the jawbone heals, the metal implant integrates with the bone through a process called osseointegration.
Your gums must heal before the abutment is attached. An abutment connects the implant in the bone to the false teeth or crown. The crown conceals the dental implant and gives it the appearance of natural teeth. To make the crown, the dentist takes impressions of your jawbone.
