Medigy: Dental Implantation

Dental implantation is a surgical procedure in which a small metal post, known as an implant, is placed into the jawbone to support a replacement tooth. The implant is designed to mimic the root of a natural tooth and it serves as an anchor for a replacement tooth, such as a crown, bridge, or denture.

Dental implantation is a common and effective way to replace missing teeth, and it is considered a long-term solution for tooth loss. The main steps of the procedure include:

Planning and preparation: This includes a thorough examination of the patient’s teeth, gums, and jaw to determine if dental implantation is a suitable option.

Surgery: The implant is placed into the jawbone, and the surrounding tissue is allowed to heal around the implant. This process is known as osseointegration and can take several months.

Abutment and restoration: Once the implant has fused with the jawbone, an abutment is attached to the implant, and a replacement tooth is attached to the abutment.

Dental implantation is a safe and predictable procedure, and the success rate is high. However, it’s important to note that the implantation process is a multi-step procedure that can take several months to complete. The success of the implantation depends on the patient’s overall oral and general health, as well as the quality of the implant and restoration.

Overall, Dental implantation is a common and effective way to replace missing teeth. It’s a surgical procedure that involves placing small metal posts into the jawbone to support replacement teeth. It can be a long-term solution for tooth loss and can improve the appearance, function, and overall oral health of patients.
