The treatment is done with sedation and local anaesthesia, if necessary. During the assessment, if your jawbone appears to be weak, then there are a few options that can be performed for bone regeneration depending on the placement of the tooth implant.
- Integration period: Dental implants may take from six weeks to six months to fuse with the jawbone of the patient. During this period, bridge work or temporary dentures can be worn, when required. In certain cases, temporary teeth are fixed to the implants while they incorporate in the procedure called ‘immediate loading’.
- The restorative phase: After it has been integrated, the implants can be combined into function along with newer teeth options that range from a single crown, removable over denture, small or large bridge. A dental technician will work together with the surgeon who constructs these restorations.

Benefits of tooth implant
- Protects your teeth: It prevents your remaining teeth from moving into empty space thus, avoiding overcrowding and further teeth problems.

- No cavities: You will not develop tooth cavities with an artificial root, however, you need to clean them regularly, just like your natural teeth.
- Correct bite problems: If you cannot bite correctly with the teeth, your ability to chew food properly may be impacted. With strong and stable artificial root, you can enjoy a well-balanced and healthy diet without avoiding hard or chewy foods.
- Look natural: It will give you the look and feel of natural teeth so that you can speak and smile with confidence.
- Less maintenance: Brush your teeth twice a day, floss daily and see your dentist for routine check-ups to take care of tooth implants once every six months.
