What Are Dental Implants? 

Dental implants are used to replace a missing or damaged tooth. Where previously the only option available for missing teeth was either dentures or possibly a crown with a bridge, dental implants are now quite a common way of dealing with this problem. To all intents and purposes, the implant will feel and look exactly like a real tooth and requires no additional care than your own teeth. 

What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?

  • With no discernible difference between a dental implant and your own tooth, you will be able to chew your food and speak properly, compared to having dentures. Unlike dentures which may slip, dental implants are immovable, giving you the confidence to eat and smile knowing your tooth or teeth will remain in place. 
  • From an aesthetic point of view, an implant is much more attractive than a missing tooth, and no-one will ever know it is not your own tooth as they are color-matched to blend in with your existing teeth. 
  • Dental implants reduce the load on remaining teeth and structures in the mouth as they are independently supported. They preserve natural tooth tissue by avoiding the need to pare down adjacent teeth for conventional bridgework. They have also been shown to reduce the need for subsequent restorative intervention of adjacent teeth.
  • Nothing is more aging than missing teeth. Replacing missing teeth improves and controls facial contours that result in minimizing wrinkles–so they do actually help in preventing premature aging.

How Long Do Dental Implants Take in Guadalajara?

For dental implants to be successful you will need to be fully assessed to ensure the bone in your jaw is acceptable to hold the implant. A digital x-ray of the jaw will establish the condition of the bone. If the bone is healthy then you will probably need two trips to complete the procedure. If you have lost a tooth because of advanced gum disease and the bone is not healthy, for example, if you have bone loss, which is quite common, then all is not lost. You may still be able to have a dental implant, but you will need an additional procedure called a bone graft to make the bone viable. This will involve an extra trip.

The implant procedure requires one or two days on the first trip. Your dentist will first make a small incision in your gum to access the bone. A small hole is drilled into the bone and the implant inserted. The gum will  then be closed over the implant and left to heal for a period of between three and six months. There will be no visible signs of the implant and you can opt to be given a healing denture to wear while the process of osseointegration takes place. This is when the bone fuses with the implant, making a strong and stable anchor for the false tooth (crown) to be fitted.

On your next trip, your dentist will attach the abutment to the implant. This is a post that secures the crown to the implant. The abutment protrudes through the gum and the crown is fixed to this and the implant procedure is complete.
