Dental Implants

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are an effective long-term solution for missing teeth. The implant serves as the artificial root to which the new teeth are supported, whether just one tooth or a complete denture. The implants are constructed of titanium, a strong and safe material that effectively attaches to the bone of the jaw. The insertion of the dental implants involves three steps: first, the implant surgical stage, or root portion of the implant, is done at a specialists’ office. Secondly, the period of healing for the jawbone takes from 4 to 12 weeks. The third step is to complete the restoration, whether it be a single crown or overdenture, which is done in our office. Follow ups and care are important for the maintenance of the implant.
