What are dental implants?
A dental implant is a structure that replaces a missing tooth. With screw-like devices, the surgeon inserts an implant into the jawbone, and it acts as an anchor for an artificial tooth, called a crown. A device called an abutment connects the artificial tooth to the dental implant. The crown is custom-made to fit the person’s mouth and match the color of their teeth. Crowns look, feel, and function like natural teeth. Novacare dental is one of the leading Implantologist In Bavdhan and provides a cost-effective range of Dental Implants in Bavdhan.
A dental implant is a structure made of titanium which replaces a missing tooth. It consists of a screwlike device which is the implant body which is placed inside the jaw bone to replicate the roots of natural teeth. The dentist then places a crown or a cap on top which is custom made to replace the crown of the missing tooth. The crown can be made to look, feel and function like natural teeth. An implant supported restoration is the most identical replacement for a lost tooth in terms of form, function and efficiency. With recent advances in technology and materials it is even possible to place implants and give the patient temporary teeth in the same appointment. This ensures that the patient is not left with a missing tooth at any point of time. Dental implant supported prosthesis have multiple advantages over conventional tooth replacements like crown and bridge.
Advantages over removable dentures:
- Implant spported prosthesis are fixed to implants hence there is no dislodgement of the prosthesis during speaking, biting or chewing
- Chewing efficiency comparable to natural teeth. Conventional dentures rest on gums which provide limited chewing efficiency whereas implant spported prosthesis is spported by implants which are fixed in the jaw bone
- Better esthetics as implant supported restorations can be made in a wide variety of restorative materials to suit every individuals esthetic demands.
Advantages over conventional bridge
- Dental implant-supported restorations function as an individual unit and are independent of adjacent teeth.
- Implants do not require the preparation of adjacent uninvolved teeth for support.
- Most identical and near-natural option for replacement of a missing tooth in terms of form, function, and esthetics

How you prepare
A number of specialists may be involved in the planning process for dental implants, including a Dental specialist on occasion as well as an oral and maxillofacial surgeon who specializes in conditions of the mouth, jaw, and face. A periodontist treats the structures that support the teeth, such as the gums and bones, while a prosthodontist creates and places artificial teeth.
You must undergo a complete evaluation to get ready for the operation because dental implants need one or more surgical procedures. This includes a:
- Comprehensive dental exam.
Dental X-rays, 3D photographs, and models of your teeth and jaw may be created.
- Review of your medical history.
Any medical issues you have, along with any prescription, OTC, and dietary supplement use, should be discussed with your doctor. Your doctor might advise taking antibiotics before surgery to help avoid infection if you have certain cardiac issues or orthopedic implants.
- Treatment plan.
This plan, which is customized for your needs, takes into account things like how many teeth you need to be replaced and the health of your jawbone and remaining teeth.
During surgery, local anaesthesia, sedation, or general anaesthesia are anaesthetic alternatives to manage pain. Which choice is ideal for you should be discussed with your dental specialist. Depending on the type of anaesthesia you receive, your dental care team will advise you on what to eat and drink before to surgery. Plan to have someone drive you home following surgery if you’re under sedation or general anaesthesia and anticipate needing to rest the rest of the day.
