A typical implant consists of a titanium screw (resembling a tooth root) with a roughened surface. This surface is treated either by plasma spraying, etching or sandblasting to increase the integration potential of the implant.
It is typically performed as an outpatient under general anaesthesia by oral surgeon or periodontist.The implant screw can be self-tapping, and is screwed into place at a precise torque so as not to overload the surrounding bone.Once properly torqued into the bone, a cover screw is placed on the implant,then gum is sutured over the site and allowed to heal for several months for integration to occur between the titanium surface of the implant and jawbone.
After few months the implant is uncovered in another surgical procedure,usually under local anaesthetic by the restorative dentist, and a healing abutment and temporary crown is placed onto the implant. This encourages the gum to grow in the right shape to approximate a natural tooth's gums and allows assessment of the final aesthetics of the restored tooth. Once this has occurred a permanent crown will be fabricated and placed on the implant.
The main benefits of dental implants are:
- It looks and feel like your own teeth

- Strong and durable
- Bye to ill fitting dentures
