Process during dental implant
Initially, the tooth has to be checked for oral surgery. Sometimes, a damaged tooth may present at the location of the site. For dental replacement, the tooth has to be extracted first. An alveolar bone graft is to be placed to achieve a solid base of the bone for transplant. It has to heal for at least six months. If that location does not have any teeth and bone loss exists, then it requires various bone graft to be placed on the top of the presenting jawbone. This process is mostly involved and takes two to six months to heal. Once the bone is in good condition, the damaged teeth can be extracted at the first time of treatment. This is known as an immediate implant. Under this situation where the transplant has to be fixed in the upper jaw or posterior region, the available amount of bone has been limited by the presence of air-filled space found in the facial bones.
