Dental implants are Titanium metal posts that are surgically positioned into the jawbone to serve as artificial teeth roots for missing teeth. Once implants are properly inserted, the dentist would carefully mount the replacement teeth onto them.

How do implants work?

Implants are designed to fuse into the jawbone in place of the missing teeth to provide stable support for artificial teeth. Restorations such as dentures and dental crowns would be allowed to mount over it. Stable and grounded implants cause no shifting or slippage of restorations. Dental implants can bring you in the road to recovering from your lost set of teeth to feel more natural and energetic.

What is the procedure to get implants?

Getting dental implants would involve a series of steps. Any broken or decayed teeth that need removal would be removed by an extraction procedure. In place of the missing teeth, the dentist would place the Titanium implant into the bone socket where teeth is missing. Healing of the implant would take place in a period of six to twelve weeks. Once bonded to the bone’s surface, a restoration in the form of a crown is attached to the abutment.
