Dental Implant Placement
The placement of a dental implant is no longer only handled by oral surgeons. Instead, general dentists these days are carrying out the procedure because they are extending their learning on how the implant surgery is done. Implant reconstruction is done to enhance optimal function and aesthetics. A general dentist or an oral surgeon visualizes the final placement reconstruction before the treatment begins. With the help of various specialists, they come up with a multidisciplinary treatment plan. Thereafter, an accurate diagnosis at Alder Dental is advised so that the experts can decide which type of implant needs to be placed.
For a reconstruction procedure, the dentist identifies the complete dental and medical history. Photographs and clinical findings will be used to rule on the diagnosis. The diagnosis will be discussed by a team of specialists who will be involved during the dental implant restoration process. Once all information is collected, the team will then put together the right plan for your dental placement procedure.
During the complete periodontal examination, the hard and soft supporting tissues are examined. The tissue biotype of a patient is grouped according to how thin or thick the gingival tissues and supporting bone are defined. Normally, when a patient has a thin periodontium, it is marked as scalloped. A patient requires fenestrations and root dehiscence when the thin layer is identified.
What Are the Benefits of Dental Implant Placement?
There are many benefits of dental implants that every patient should experience after placement. The dental restorations are more stable when attached to the jaw compared to other missing teeth solutions such as dental bridges and dentures. Dental implants are permanent; they can never move from their position. High durability is another reported benefit experienced by most dental implant clients. The durability and function is what makes many patients choose dental implants among all of the other solutions.
Get an Implant Restoration Sooner than Later
The longer you wait to make your decision about dental implants, the riskier it gets for you, and more likely that you may form additional oral health problems. When teeth are missing, the jawbone begins to deteriorate because there are no longer teeth there to support it. In addition, empty spaces in the gums are an area for bacteria to grow.
