What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are appliances that are used to replace the root of a tooth. The implant is placed where the root of the tooth used to be and a porcelain tooth is bonded to the top of the implant to create the look of a natural tooth. In the case that several teeth are missing, multiple implants can provide the base for a series of faux teeth. This is known as a bridge.

The Implant Process

Using a precision technique, the dental implant posts are inserted into the jaw bone. A local anesthetic is used in order to maintain comfort, with sedation also being an option for those who are feeling anxious about the procedure.

The implants will then be covered by gum tissue so that they can begin to become an actual part of the mouth. Over the next three to six months, bone will grow around each post and the implants will be truly sturdy and capable of holding the porcelain teeth.
