A dental implant is a surgical procedure in which a small post, usually made of titanium, is inserted directly into your jawbone where a tooth is missing, providing a solid base for a natural replacement tooth. Dental Implants are natural looking, secure and durable, and last a lifetime with regular dental check-ups and proper dental hygiene.
Implants require a process that can take a series of months to complete. Once an implant is placed in the bone, it must be given proper time to heal and fuse to that bone. After your jaw heals, an abutment is attached on top of the post to provide substantial support for the bridge or crown that will appear in place of the missing tooth.
