Dental Implants

What are Dental Implants

Dental implants are tooth root substitutes which are usually made of titanium a metal that is well suited to pairing with human bone,. They are surgically placed into the jawbone. Small posts are then attached to the implant, which protrude through the gums. These posts provide stable anchors for artificial replacement teeth.


Dental Implant Procedure

For most patients, the placement of dental implants involves two surgical procedures. First, implants are placed within the patients jawbone. For the first three to six months following the surgery, implants are beneath the surface of the gums, gradually bonding with the jawbone.


After the implant has bonded to the jawbone, the second phase begins. by uncovering the implant and attaching the “post” that will hold the artificial tooth in place After several weeks of healing the artificial teeth are made and fitted to the post portion of the anchor. Dental implants are very strong, stable, and durable and will last many years.
