Implants are used to replace missing roots and to hold replacement teeth in place. Implants can be permanent or not.

The procedure

  1. Your dentist or oral surgeon will insert a little retention pin in your jaw. 
  2. With time, the retention pin will integrate itself to the bone tissue. 
  3. The retention pin or implant forms a solid base that will support one artificial tooth or more.

As the implant integrates itself to the bone tissue, it can almost be treated as a natural tooth, except that it is a little more delicate, thus needing gentle care when it comes to brushing and flossing. Every surface of the implant has to be cleaned very gently. A tooth brush with longer bristle will help you clean the back of the implant. Dental flossing is essential every day. The floss has to be delicately passed where the implant goes into the gum. A floss threader could be useful.

Implants are not appropriate for everybody. To be a good candidate, you have to be in good health, have healthy gums and have enough solid bone tissue in your jaw to support the implant.

The mandibular base will normally shrink when there is no more teeth to support. As the implant integrates itself to the bone tissue, there are less chance for the reduction to happen. On the other hand, if the teeth have been missing for a long time, the bone mass will have most probably reduced. A bone graft could replenish the mandibular base in order for it to better support the implant. Your dentist or dental specialist will determinate if you are a good implant candidate.

It is also necessary for you to: 

  • have many examinations by your dentist or specialist until the work is completed;
  • take particular care of your implants;
  • have a good mandibular base in order to support the implant.
