Implant Surgery and Temporization
Regaining a confident and radiant smile after tooth loss is achievable, thanks to the advanced field of implant dentistry. Implant surgery and temporization are integral steps in the process of restoring your smile with dental implants. Discover how these procedures work together to give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of.
Implant surgery is the first crucial step in the journey toward replacing missing teeth with dental implants. During this procedure, a dental implant, typically made of biocompatible titanium, is surgically placed into the jawbone to serve as a stable and long-lasting replacement for the natural tooth root. The implant becomes the foundation upon which your new teeth will be securely anchored.
What is Temporization?
Temporization, often referred to as a temporary restoration, is the process of creating and placing temporary teeth while your dental implants heal and integrate with the jawbone. These temporaries serve multiple essential purposes during your implant journey.
The Benefits of Temporization
- Aesthetic Continuity: Temporaries fill the gap left by missing teeth, ensuring you maintain your smile’s appearance throughout the healing process.
- Functional Comfort: Temporaries allow you to speak, eat, and smile comfortably while your permanent restorations are being crafted.
- Protection: Temporaries protect the implant site and surrounding tissues, reducing the risk of complications during the healing phase.
- Psychological Boost: A complete smile can boost your self-esteem and confidence as you move toward your final restoration.
