What Are Dental Implants?

Missing teeth can significantly affect your oral health, appearance, and confidence. Fortunately, dental implants offer a solution that feels and looks natural.

A dental implant is a two-part system comprising a metal post and a crown. The titanium metal post is surgically placed into the jawbone, where it fuses over time, providing a robust foundation for the crown. The crown, attached to the metal post, resembles a natural tooth and functions like one, allowing you to eat, talk, and smile confidently, knowing your artificial teeth look and feel real.

Dental Implants Treatment Procedure

Step 1: Oral Examination Your journey to dental implants begins with a visit to your dentist. During this appointment, the dentist will thoroughly examine your mouth to determine if you're a suitable candidate for the procedure.

Step 2: Bone Graft (Optional) If your jawbone is too thin, a bone graft may be necessary to ensure the implant has a solid structure to remain secure. This procedure involves transplanting a small piece of bone into your jaw, requiring some time to heal.

Step 3: Healing Time Healing after a bone graft can take three to twelve months, depending on the individual. This period is crucial for the implant to fuse with the surrounding tissues and jawbone.

Step 4: Implant Placement Once healed from the bone graft, the next step is implant placement. This surgical procedure involves inserting a titanium screw into the jawbone, acting as the root of the artificial tooth. Healing from this step can take up to six months.

Step 5: Crown and Abutment Placement After your jaw has accepted the implant and fully healed, the final step is placing the crown and abutment. The temporary crown is removed, and a connector (abutment) is inserted to connect the crown to the root, completing your dental implants.
