What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a titanium screw that is placed in your jaw. Titanium has and continues to be used for several medical procedures since the 1950’s. It is the most biocompatible of all metals and it actually allows human bone growth to adhere to implants so they last longer.
What does the procedure involve?
Once the implant is placed in your bone, which replaces the root, it will be left there for several months in order for the bone to integrate with it.
When the healing has occurred an abutment and a temporary crown is placed. Once the dentist feels that the soft tissue has healed around the abutment. The dentist will remove the temporary crown and place a new natural looking crown.
