You might have a broken teeth with roots remaining in the gums. Dr. Muyal will remove all remains of the roots. Empty socket to hold the tooth will be placed in the jaw bone. Sometimes a bone graft has to be put in the bone to help the healing process.
See our illustration of such implant process and also actual dental implants photographs.
For some patients, a bridge maybe be a good solution. For others, the better solution is a single tooth implant.
The dental implantation process involves few steps:
First, the tooth must be pulled if it hasn't already been removed. Then, the empty socket in the jaw must close up and heal properly. A bone graft can be provided to help speed the rate of healing. Once the jaw bone is healed, the implant can then be put into place. It may take several weeks for the bone to bond and fuse with the implant.
When it happens, dental implants professional Dr. Muyal will place a post to connect the implant tooth with your bone. Dr. Muyal will show you the tooth and select the shape and color to match rest of your natural teeth. Your new dental implanted tooth should not be recognizable from your other teeth and can last a lifetime.
