Permanent Dental Implants
Dental implants is a practice that has become more popular to help replace missing teeth.
Implants are an excellent long-term option and do an excellent job of acting as a sturdy replacement for missing teeth.
The process involves:
- Through surgery, the dentist secures the implant into the jawbone.
- The dentist helps plot out a healing process.
- Through osseointegration the bone grows around the implant, holding it in place. This process may take from one visit up to several months before tooth implants can be attached.
- The tooth is placed with a dental crown or multiple teeth with a custom-made bridge or dentures.
