What Are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that looks like a screw. When the implant is placed in your jawbone, it bonds with your bone. The implant becomes a sturdy base for supporting one or more artificial teeth, called crowns.
Why Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the only dental restoration option that preserves natural bone, actually helping to stimulate bone growth. By getting a dental implant, you are enabling yourself to return to full functionality of a regular tooth. Dental implants not only look the same as a regular tooth, but also function the same and have strength and durability.
What Can I Expect When I Get an Implant?
The process of getting a dental implant has a couple different steps. The steps typically include:
-3D X-ray and scans
-Surgically placing the implant
-Taking impressions for the crown
-Placing the crown
Note that this whole process usually takes around 4-8 months but could be shorter or longer depending on individual circumstances.
