A missing tooth can be a very frustrating experience. In addition to causing insecurity related to your appearance, missing teeth can cause discomfort and difficulty when eating and speaking. As a solution to this problem, a dentist in Thailand may recommend a dental implant.
What Are Dental Implants and When Are They Recommended?
Dental Implants are structures used to replace missing teeth. Dental implants look and function the same way natural teeth do. There is a screw-like element on the bottom of the implant that anchors an artificial tooth, called a crown, into place.
Dental implants can help to boost self-esteem by giving you back a full smile. They can also help you speak and eat normally and prevent digestion problems. Additionally, the installation of dental implants helps to maintain good overall oral health.
Most people who are healthy enough to undergo oral surgery can be considered for dental implants. It is a very safe procedure with a high success rate. However, anyone considering dental implants in Thailand should be committed to good oral hygiene and regular dentist visits.
How to Prepare for Dental Implant Surgery
If you are interested in dental implants, the first step is to consult your dentist. They will evaluate your gum health and jaw structure to ensure you have enough bone to hold the implant. The evaluation for a dental implant usually includes a full oral check-up and an x-ray.
Once you are approved for the procedure, a team of dental specialists will create an individualized treatment plan to address your unique dental implant needs. Before the surgery, you will undergo a full oral cleaning to make sure your mouth is ready for the procedure.
What to Expect During and After Dental Implant Surgery
Vejthani Hospital offers a unique one-day dental implant procedure. Your doctor will apply local anesthesia before the procedure, and most patients experience only mild discomfort.
During the procedure, the doctor will make a hole in the bone where the implant will be secured. After the implant is placed, the hole will be closed with stitches and allowed 1-2 weeks to heal. Once the implant is fully healed, you can then return to the doctor to have permanent teeth built on top of the implant.
You can typically treat any discomfort following a dental implant procedure with over-the-counter pain medication. You will need to schedule periodic follow-up appointments after your dental implant surgery to ensure that your mouth is healing normally. Once healed, your dental implant will require the same care as your natural teeth, so you should continue to brush, floss, rinse with mouthwash, and visit the dentist for regular check-ups.
