Dental implant clinic in Ghatkopar
Dental implants are nothing but artificial teeth placed in the jaw after tooth loss. Dental implants are recommended when a person looses a tooth from periodontal disease or an injury. If you’ve just discovered you need a dental implant, it’s normal to be nervous and not know what to expect. Dr Leena Nayak's is happy to walk you through the process step by step.
Firstly, Dr Leena Nayak would examine you and make a customized treatment plan for your teeth. Next, the tooth root implant, which is a small post made of titanium, is placed into the bone socket of the missing tooth.
As the jawbone heals, it grows around the implanted metal post, anchoring it securely in the jaw. The healing process can take from six to 12 weeks. Once the implant has bonded to the jawbone, a small connector post - called an abutment is attached to the post to securely hold the new tooth.
To make the new tooth or teeth, Dr Leena Nayak would then make an impression of your teeth, and create a model of your bite (which captures all of your teeth, their type, and arrangement). The new tooth or teeth is based on this model. A replacement tooth, called a crown, is then attached to the abutment.
These implants are almost indistinguishable from the surrounding natural teeth, and once the bone and supporting tissue fuse to the implant, they are permanently secured into place. One needs to practice diligent oral hygiene during the implant placement period to clean plaque and food debris from the area.
After treatment, Dr. Leena Nayak will develop the best aftercare plan for you. Periodic follow-up visits will be recommended to monitor your implant, teeth and gums to make sure they are healthy.
There are many advantages of dental implants such as improved speech, easier eating, convenience and durability. Hence, it's vital to find a dentist who specifically offers professional expertise, Dr Leena Nayak's Dental Care Clinic at Ghatkopar is your one stop place for dental solutions.
