Before the surgery
A dental imaging test should be performed, and your doctor may request a panoramic dental image to diagnose problems that cannot be seen through a regular examination. Most dental implants are performed only under local anesthesia and can sometimes be performed under general anesthesia. Your doctor gives some antibiotics to people who are more likely to develop endocarditis, such as people with artificial valves, and those with immunodeficiency. A series of preliminary tests are carried out to create a tooth similar in color and texture as possible to the original teeth, and in some cases pre-implantation treatments are needed to create a suitable tissue area for implantation of new teeth
During the operation
The patient is sedated by a local anesthetic and can then start the dental implantation if the bone is ready to receive the implant, where the spiral metal screws are fastened to the jawbone. It is usually waited for at least 6 weeks until the tissue heals before the final dental installation.
You should avoid eating and drinking for two hours after surgery, i.e., until the effect of anesthesia is over.
you may feel pain in the area, especially on the first day after implanting metal implants, so painkillers can be used as needed.
Dental care and oral cleaning should be done regularly, using a soft brush to prevent toothaches and other cleaning tools to get the best result of the operation.
If you develop symptoms, such as high body temperature, severe pain, bleeding, and secretions from the mouth, you should immediately go to your doctor.
Dental implant techniques
This technique is the most common technique. in which spiral pegs are implanted in the jaw bones and then crowns are fitted to the pegs
The treating doctor installs the dental base between the gums and jaw bones. This technique is used because there are not enough jaw bones to allow dental implants
