Dental Implants 101
Dental implants are small, titanium posts that act as replacement tooth roots. They are surgically placed into the jawbone in the space left behind from missing teeth. Because of titanium’s biocompatible nature, the implants actually fuse with the jawbone to create a stable foundation for replacement teeth.
Dental Implant Process
The implant process generally happens in two phases: placement and restoration. The first phase is the implant placement where we put the implants into their proper positions and wait for them to fuse with the jawbone. The fusion process may take anywhere from three to six months, but every patient is different.
After the area is healed, we’ll start on phase two which is creating the custom restoration to attach to your implant(s). Crowns are utilized for single-tooth replacement and bridges and dentures can be connected to two or more implants to replace multiple teeth.
