Dental implants are the most natural tooth replacement option because they are surgically placed below the gum line, ensuring the crowns are indistinguishable from other teeth.
The dental implant process begins with the placement of a titanium post into the jawbone. From there, the patient will wait 3-4 months until the bone grows and adheres to the post. After healing is completed a custom crown is made and then attached to the implant creating a tooth that looks and functions like a normal tooth.
- Dental implants can be a great supplement to full or partial dentures.
- Most dental implant procedures take three months to complete, as the patient requires healing time between procedures and the crown can’t be attached until the implant is properly fused to the jawbone.
- Dental implants are stable, comfortable and look completely natural.
- Implants are becoming increasing popular as people discover that they’re the next best thing to natural teeth.
