Oral Surgery & Implants
The tooth problem you’re experiencing may demand a few oral surgery procedures to be remedied. It is nothing to be concerned about because anesthetics are administered during the procedures. The patient does not experience much pain when the dentist works on them, and the issue that brought them to the clinic is usually resolved by the time the surgery is over.
When a tooth is lost due to injury or disease, a person can experience complications such as rapid bone loss, defective speech, or changes to chewing patterns that result in discomfort. Replacing a lost tooth with a dental implant can significantly improve the patient’s quality of life and health.
Dental implant systems consist of a dental implant body placed by the surgeon and a dental implant abutment. The dental implant body is surgically inserted in the jawbone in place of the tooth’s root. The dental implant abutment is usually attached to the implant body by the abutment fixation screw attached to a crown or denture.
