Affordable Dental Implants at Cosmetic Dental Care Clinic in South Plainfield

Before the development of this kind of implant the most common kind was the blade endosseous implant. This is a metal piece, which looks like a blade, which is put into the jawbone. There is also the subperiosteal implant whereby a framework is used to attach screws to the teeth and the bone.

A single-stage dental implant is often performed when only one or two teeth are being replaced, especially those toward the back of the mouth. This procedure involves the implantation of a single dental implant in the jaw both, the same as the two-stage procedure. However, in this procedure, the dental implant head or abutment is situated above the gum line. Healing time is similar to the two-stage process and takes a month or so. The only difference between the two is that in the single-stage process, the abutment is visible above the gum line. At the end of his time, the crown is attached to the abutment without the need for minor surgery to expose the abutment as is required during the two-stage process.

Your dentist will periodically check the parts of your new denture to ensure they are secure and in proper place. Your denture may seem stable but over time these attachments can loosen. If they loosen even slightly it will cause the denture to move when chewing. This movement of the denture can cause sore spots as the denture rubs against your gums. Your dentist will also check to make sure your bite is correct and make any adjustments as needed.

The first thing the dentist must do to determine if you qualify is to ascertain the state of your general health. Various medical risk factors like diabetes and smoking may but the brakes on your visit, and send you home with nothing. It's still possible to get a dental implant if you smoke or are diabetic, but it will be at the discretion of your dentist because the risk for failure is higher. If you do have medical risk factors and are still able to proceed, you will have to be very meticulous in keeping your teeth and gums clean afterward to prevent infection. You may be prescribed special products, which will add to the overall dental implant cost slightly, but it will be worth it in the end.

Like any surgical procedure, there are risks when it comes to dental implants, although, most are highly unlikely. The risks include:
