1. When do you need dental implants?
Dental implants look natural and are the proper substitute for missing teeth. Different from many other tooth replacement choices, dental implants do not slip or click when you talk, laugh or eat, offering extreme confidence in social circumstances. Dental implants are also believed to be a healthy choice because they help to uphold the jawbone, keeping the facial construction normal. The dentist in Dubai will explain the entire dental procedure if you choose to have dental implants.
2. What are dental implants?
Dental implants are frequently the proper treatment for missing teeth. When an injured or decayed tooth is eliminated, both crown and root, the visible parts of the tooth, are lost. A dental implant will then be placed into the jawbone so that it can combine with the natural bone and become a durable and sturdy base for substitute teeth. Dental implants can be utilized to change a single tooth or for an implant-supported bridge or denture comprising numerous teeth. Dental implants are the closest you can get to healthy, natural teeth and our dentists in Dubai will offer you proper information and guidance about this type of procedure.
3. How do dental implants function?
Teeth repaired with dental implants will feel and work just like the natural teeth. You can brush, floss, maintain a proper oral hygiene and visit your dentist in Dubai for regular examinations and cleanings, same as you would do for your natural teeth. If you need a dental implant, the dentist in Dubai will create a suitable treatment plan that will involve a few important steps:
• once the implant fixes to the jawbone, a tiny connector called "abutment" will be placed on top of the dental implant, in order to attach the implant to the replacement tooth;
• the individual tooth, an implant-supported bridge or dentures covering numerous teeth are then added to the connector;
• the dental implant, frequently a cylindrical and/or thin post made of titanium will be positioned surgically into the jaw.
4. What do I need to know before I take a dental implant?
First of all, the dentist in Dubai must review an informed agreement procedure, in order to establish that you have been told and are aware of all the risks, advantages and replacements of the procedure being suggested. You will then sign a consent form and one copy will be part of your medical record at our dental clinic in Dubai.
5. What about the eating process after a dental implant procedure?
It’s usually significant to stay away from exposing any recent surgical site in the mouth to food if you can. Our dentists in Dubai recommend you to eat as soft as possible, to take nutritious foods and to drink a lot of water. The dentist will suggest you proper diet and will give instructions on how to take care of the new dental implants during healing.
6. How long do implants last?
Once a dental implant has bonded to the bone positively and it is functional, it should last many years if cared for correctly. Many dental implants can last for up to 40 years, according to our dentist in Dubai.
7. Is the dental implant procedure painful?
It is good to know that this kind of procedure is not painful and it is generally done under local anesthesia in the dental clinic in Dubai, in the same way as a filling. Once the anesthesia takes effect, you will not feel any pain.
8. Can my body reject the dental implant?
There are individuals with allergies to titanium, but these are quite rare situations and you should not worry about a possible rejection of your future dental implant. Rarely, an implant doesn’t combine to the bone the first time because it grows a capsule of fibrous soft tissue around it, instead of uniting to the bone, or it becomes infected.
9. How long do healing and replacement take?
The complete process regularly takes about 2 to 9 months, depending on your treatment plan offered by your dentist. There are two main stages: first, the dental implants have to heal by merging to the bone, and then the tooth replacement repairs have to be constructed and then attached.
10. Are the dental implants expensive?
Dental implants are usually more expensive than fixed bridgework to place firstly, but since they last so much longer, over time they will be more cost-effective. If you choose to have a dental visit in Dubai, you will receive a proper treatment plan that will contain also the costs.
