Dental Implant Placement After The Tooth Was Removed 3 Years Ago?
Ma’am, I want to ask, if I can insert the implant or not, because the tooth has been removed for about 3 years. Can it still be done?
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Dental implants are one of the dental surgical procedures with the aim of replacing missing teeth, whether intentionally or not. Dental implants are formed of special metal, but the majority of the material is titanium. This is because the material after several months will blend with the jaw. Once fused, he will act as the root of new teeth. Then the artificial dental crown will be installed next together with the connection between the dental implant and the dental crown. After this stage, the implant will not change its position.
Regarding your question, there is no problem whether the original tooth has been removed for 3 years or more, or even still in a matter of days. Noteworthy are those who want to undergo dental implants should have fully grown jawbones, have healthy oral and gum tissue, do not have conditions that interfere with bone growth and health, have jaw bones that can hold dental implants, are not smokers severe, and don't suffer from diabetes or heart disease.
Various criteria above may not all of you know whether you are worth it or not. But not to worry because as a patient, you just need to check your condition to the dentist and express your wishes. The dentist will determine whether you are worthy or not with various examinations. For more details, will be discussed later. Furthermore, you may be advised to use dentures if the implant is not an option that is not right for you. The important thing, make sure you consult and perform this procedure only on the experts, the dentist. So, hopefully answering your question.
