FAQ's on Conventional Dental Braces
Dental implants are commonly used for adults and seldom for children. You will also need to have good general oral health, healthy gums and good bone structure. There should be adequate bone in your jaw to support the implant.
Our dentist will perform a thorough dental examination and take dental x-ray to determine if you are suitable for the procedure. If suitable, we will schedule you for a dental implant. You will be placed under local anesthesia for the procedure. After the procedure, there is a healing period of about 1-4 months for the bone to bond to the implant (osseointegration). The temporary replacement tooth can be used immediately. The dentist will make an impression of your tooth and fabricate a crown/bridge/denture that will be attached to the implant. Once this is completed, you will have natural looking and functional tooth.
From the initial dental consultation to the time the final tooth is fitted, the whole process will take about 4-6 months. Some factors will affect the length of the whole process, including, the speed of healing of the implant site, whether bone grafting is needed, and also whether the patient has other medical complications.

Avoid hot/spicy/hard food and hot drinks until the sensation has recovered. Take the prescribed medication and keep your follow-up appointment to ensure speedy recovery.
Dental implants are permanent fixtures like your natural tooth and do not require any special maintenance. Simply maintain the implant through a regular oral hygiene routine including brushing, flossing and regular dental check-ups every 6 months.
